Leadtek Brings Latest PCoIP® Product Series to Enhance VDI and RWS Efficiency


Taipei, Taiwan, Aug. 24th, 2012 –

Leadtek Research Inc., known globally for extreme cloud computing technology development, is pleased to announce its next generation Tera2 PCoIP Zero Clients based on the Teradici® TERA2140/TERA2321 chipset and Tera2 PCoIP Host Cards based on the TERA2240/TERA2220 chipset, further fortifying VDI (Virtual Desktop Infrastructure) and RWS (Remote Workstation) operating efficiency.

PCoIP Zero Client ensures data security and provides simplified IT management by eliminating the need for updating and managing operating systems on the user's desk. It works seamlessly with VMware® VDI solution to benefit desktop users with a rich desktop PC experience.

Furthermore, Leadtek's Zero Client connected to quad or dual display Host Card enables Windows or Linux workstations to be moved into the datacenter without impacting application performance with the demanding graphics and latency sensitive RWS infrastructure. These new Host Card processors are raising the bar on security and performance with advanced security features such as AES-256 and NSA Suite B security protocols suitable for top secret classification. The solution also provides maximum performance of 300 mega pixels per second (Mpps) capable of driving full screens of changing pixels with application refresh rates of up to 60 frames per second (fps) to ensure the best remote user experience.

The PCoIP product series supports any user type, from task workers and mainstream office workers to extreme workstation/visualization application users. Leadtek is working closely with both Teradici and VMware® to offer customers a remote computing solution that delivers uncompromised user experience, improved scalability and ultimate security.

"With the addition of Teradici's Tera2 PCoIP chipset, Leadtek continues to provide VMware View and workstation customers with a full set of PCoIP zero client and remote workstation endpoints to meet the needs of virtual desktop and power user deployments." said Dan Cordingley, president and CEO, Teradici Corporation.

"Leadtek offers our customers the best technologies and the most comprehensive PCoIP solutions,” said K. S. Lu, chairman & CEO of Leadtek Research Inc. “We're very pleased to team up with Teradici to bring the next-generation PCoIP® workstation solutions to market.
