ASUS Delivers Innovative CP Series Zero Client Monitor and Zero Client Box Solutions

    New CP Series Zero Client Monitors and Zero Client Box feature Teradici PCoIP technology that provide enterprises with secure and cost-effective virtual desktop solutions

    Fremont, CA (April 8th, 2014) - ASUS today announces availability of the CP220 and CP240 Zero Client Monitors along with CPX20 Zero Client Box that create an efficient and cost effective IT management system for enterprises looking to enhance their VMware®-based Virtual Desktop Infrastucture (VDI). ASUS’ innovative devices feature Teradici® PCoIP® (PC-over-IP) technology that compresses, encrypts and encodes the entire computing experience at the data center and transmits it as 'pixels only' to the CP series Zero Client Monitor or CPX20 Zero Client Box. Because all software and data are 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 AH-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. Each CP monitor features a 3-year ARR (Advance Rapid Replacement) warranty in North America.*
    CPX20 Zero Client Box
    The CPX20 Zero Client Box features is 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.
    AVAILABILITY & PRICING
    Product availability in North America will start on April 8, 2014 at leading VARs and distributors. The US MSRP for the CP240 is $529, CP220 is $499, and the CPX20 is $329. Please contact your local ASUS representative for further information.
