Teradici’s PCoIP technology delivers secure virtual desktops, workstations, workspaces, and applications, according to Socionext’s Koichi Yamashita.
The first goal of the partnership will be an expansion of Teradici’s PCoIP Zero Client family of ultra-secure hardware endpoints for virtual and cloud environments. The new Socionext SC1110 SoC, also known as “PXiV”, will be used in the new Alta PCoIP Zero Client alongside the well-established Tera2 PCoIP Zero Client line, of which more than 3 million units have shipped.
PCoIP Zero Clients are hardware-based endpoints that use a highly integrated, purpose-built processor to perform image decompression and decoding, so pixels are transmitted instead of data.
By integrating the PCoIP hardware decoder with modern SoC technology, Teradici and Socionext aim to empower OEMs to embed PCoIP technology in a range of devices beyond the traditional desktop form factors.
“Socionext has developed industry-leading expertise in a broad range of digital consumer products and this new partnership with Teradici will expand PCoIP embedded endpoint solutions to broader use cases, such as digital signage, automotive, interactive media streaming and more,” said Anthony Wong, Director of Marketing at Socionext.
