We are extremely pleased with VDIworks' VideoOverIP protocol because our Hyper-V VMs are now able to provide truly high-end display capabilities. With VideoOverIP, our VDI systems are not only well managed, but as snappy and seamless to our end users as a fast desktop PC.
Austin, TX (PRWEB) September 2, 2009
VDIworks, a provider of virtual desktop management and enablement products, announced today that it has optimized its VideoOverIP desktop remoting protocol for Hyper-V, bringing unparalleled user experience to Microsoft's Virtualization Platform.
"VDI technology certainly delivers reliability, power and cooling advantages to a manufacturing concern like ours. But what we gain in these areas, we can't afford to lose to a poor user experience.", said Andrew Cooper, President & CEO at Tyrex Manufacturing Group. "We are extremely pleased with VDIworks' VideoOverIP protocol because our Hyper-V VMs are now able to provide truly high-end display capabilities. With VideoOverIP, our VDI systems are not only well managed, but as snappy and seamless to our end users as a fast desktop PC."
VideoOverIP is completely hardware agnostic and unlike many other protocols, does not tie users down a particular brand of server or Thin client. VideoOverIP can be installed quickly and independently in Hyper-V hosted VMs without the need for any additional software infrastructure. Enterprise users requiring discovery, connection brokering, Thin client management and other advanced features can use VideoOverIP in concert with VDIworks' end-to-end management platform, VDP. In addition to supporting VideoOverIP, VDP will continue to discover, manage and broker additional protocols, such as HP's RGS, Teradici's PC-over-IP, Microsoft RDP and others.
"Today VDIworks provides extensive support for Microsoft infrastructure, with the VDIvision System Center plug-in, VDP support for Hyper-V and through our other products", said Amir Husain, President and CEO of VDIworks. "We believe VideoOverIP's high-performance capabilities when running on Hyper-V will go a long way in improving the end-user's virtual desktop experience."
VideoOverIP, now optimized for Hyper-V, pioneers a new level of flexibility and configurability allowing users to tune protocol performance for their specific environments. For example, VideoOverIP provides multiple compression algorithm choices, which can be adjusted to deliver the best quality and responsiveness for a given network. The product also allows buffer sizes to be adjusted to enable improved synchronization of audio and video, delivers multiple administrator-selectable methods for source capture and implements an advanced adaptive delta algorithm to maximize performance.
Other advanced features in the product include multi-monitor support, DirectX and OpenGL capabilities, analog Audio-In, transparency, desktop compositing and other features.
