Praim signs an agreement to offer Leadtek PCoIP solutions

Taipei, Taiwan, April 1, 2011- Praim acquires the right to supply Leadtek Zero Client – WinFast® VP200 to Italy and the rest of Europe. WinFast® VP200 Zero Client is developed for virtual desktops and oriented to small companies as well as large organizations.

Leadtek Research Inc. is known globally for cloud computing technology and graphics development. WinFast® VP200 is designed for virtual desktop solution and offers full desktop opportunities even for advanced users. Zero Client does not depend on a specific operation system, provides users with high security, and is easy-to-use and manage. WinFast® VP200 provides users with centralized control of PCs and workstations in data processing centers and also offers an ability to expand quickly and adapt to change easily for personnel working with three-dimensional graphics and HD-media, with full interoperability of USB ports by standard IP networks. Leadtek Zero Client makes the practical integration of all information resources in one data center possible, moves desktop workstations and PCs to a secured location, and provides users with opportunities without any risk for data leakage. WinFast® VP200 Zero Client has earned VMware® ViewTM 4 certification with its outstanding VDI protocol PCoIP® solution and is officially listed on the VMware Thin Client HCL list.

Praim expands its Thin Client portfolio with WinFast® VP200 client/host solution and can provide the excellent PCoIP Zero Client to all customers who want to implement a reduction in the TCO of their IT infrastructure and are interested in an ultra-high performance solution. Praim will distribute WinFast® VP200 solution to customers primarily in Italy and the rest of Europe. “We're looking forward to working closely with Praim,” said Richard Chou, GM of PCBU, Leadtek, adding that, “Praim is an Italian leader of Thin Client solutions.
