The new release offers a virtual desktop environment for businesses multimedia graphics and supports two displays
HP has expanded its t410 Smart Zero Client family with a new model that offers a virtual desktop environment for businesses with multimedia graphics and two display support.
The new HP t410 Smart Zero Client supports all three virtualisation protocols in one device, using Digital Signal Processor (DSP) Acceleration and ARM Neon extensions to enable a PC-like user experience.
HP’s new thin client model is built with a high-performance Texas Instruments TMS320DM8148 ARM Cortex processor. It includes 1 GB DDR3 SDRAM, 2 GB eMMC Flash memory capacity and support for dual displays up to 1,920×1,080 pixels.
The HP thin client installation wizard will look for the right Microsoft, Citrix or VMware cloud infrastructure and establishes a secure connection to the appropriate cloud desktop environment for all devices.
The company has also introduced HP Velocity, a quality-of-service software engine that improves network performance for virtual desktop environments. It comes preinstalled as a feature on HP thin clients, including the HP t410, HP t510 and HP t610.
Velocity helps optimise thin client networks by correcting packet-loss errors without requiring packet retransmission. It also eases bottlenecks in computing environments where one application runs on multiple networks simultaneously.
The quality-of-service software engine includes network-monitoring tools that enable IT administrators to capture information in a log file, detect what’s adversely affecting the network or causing lag and correct the problems.
HP Thin Clients Marketing director Jeff Groudan said the t410 Smart Zero Client enables customers to cost-effectively offer workers the same computing experience as a full PC environment without requiring on-device management.
"The t410 is an ideal solution for call centers, education, healthcare, government and hospitality environments that value reliability, zero management and energy efficiency," Groudan said.
