ASUS Introduces the Innovative CP Series Zero Client Monitors
and Zero Client Box
Featuring Teradici PCoIP technology to provide enterprises with secure and cost-effective VMware-based virtual desktop solutions
Taipei, Taiwan (8th April, 2014) — ASUS today announces the availability of the CP220 and CP240 Zero Client Monitors along with the CPX20 Zero Client Box for enterprises looking to create an efficient and cost effective IT management system to enhance their VMware®-based Virtual Desktop Infrastucture (VDI). These innovative solutions feature Teradici® PCoIP® (PC-over-IP) technology that compresses, encrypts and encodes the entire computing process at the data center and transmits it as 'pixels only' to the CP series Zero Client Monitor or CPX20 Zero Client Box. With all software and data stored on a centralized platform, it minimizes the organization’s exposure to security risks and provides an easy to maintain network.
“With the introduction of the CP Series, ASUS is delivering a brand new portfolio of PCoIP zero client form factors that meet today’s most stringent enterprise computing requirements for security, performance and ease of IT manageability,” said, Ziad Lammam, Director of Product Management at Teradici. “We’re delighted to welcome ASUS as the newest member of Teradici’s robust partner ecosystem.”
ASUS CP Series Zero Client Monitor (CP220 / CP240)
The innovative ASUS CP series Zero Client Monitors are VMware-ready displays with a built-in Teradici Tera 2321 processor with onboard PCoIP technology. This lets the CP series seamlessly integrate with VMware-based environments to create a VDI solution for enterprises. The PCoIP remote display protocol allows users to access data and applications directly from a centralized server, doing away with the need for desktops, tablets or notebooks.
This frees users and administrators from routine PC maintenance tasks like downloading patches or updates, in addition to simplifying desktop management, increasing security and reducing infrastructure costs.
The ASUS CP series Zero Client Monitors deliver clear, detailed visuals in Full HD 1080p (1920x1080), and provides superior color accuracy and excellent backlight transmission for outstanding contrast and brightness. The top-of-the-line CP 240 utilizes an IPS panel with a 178 degree wide-view angle for clear, vivid visuals with minimal color distortion that allows extended viewing of applications. Both monitors are ergonomically designed with a full range of tilt, pivot, swivel and height adjustment plus are compatible with standard VESA mounts.
CPX20 Zero Client Box
Weighing just 500g, the CPX20 Zero Client Box features a sleek, compact and lightweight design that can be easily mounted on the back of any VESA-compatible display. Once connected, the CPX20 turns any display into a VDI Zero Client monitor, freeing up desktop space for a clutter-free workstation.
