Samsung unveils thin- and zero-client PC-over-IP cloud station displays


Samsung Electronics America announced its newest lines of
LED/LCD thin- and zero-client PC-over-IP Cloud Station monitors, which provide
an alternative to desktop PCs, enabling highly secure access to any PCoIP-enabled
remote host.


The new TS190, TS220 and TS240 Thin-client monitors and
their NS190, NS220, NS240 and NC220P Zero-client counterparts will be on
display at VMWorld 2011 in Las Vegas August 29 -September 1.


The new TS-Series and NS-Series Cloud Station monitors
continue Samsung’s dedication to innovation within the enterprise market and
offer organizations a highly efficient means to enter the developing desktop
virtualization space,” said Young Bae, director of display marketing at Samsung
Electronics Enterprise Business Division.


These new models reduce the burden on IT management and
enable workstations to leverage the power and speed of the company’s server,
while reducing overall energy costs and creating a seamless, clutter-free work
environment,” Bae added.


The NS-Series Cloud Stations are true zero-client (PCoIP)
displays, allowing connections direct from the desktop display to a central
host. These monitors eliminate the need for a local CPU, memory and storage at
each workstation.


This flexibility also reduces maintenance costs as all
software and hardware components installed on the server automatically extend
to each user’s desktop.


The NC220P feature Cisco’s Universal Power Over Ethernet
(UPOE) technology, which not only provides access to the network and software
on a central server, but also powers the device. The Cisco UPOE can supply up
to 60 watts of power over Ethernet, nearly twice as much as currently existing


For enterprises needing more support from their
workstations, the TS-Series Cloud Stations offer thin-client functionality and
include processors, graphics cards and embedded operating systems like Windows®
Embedded Standard 7 and Citrix Zero Client Operating System. These hardware
components are conveniently hidden in the base of the monitor to maintain the
overall minimalist appearance.


Continuing Samsung’s LED backlit display line-up, the new
TS- and NS-Series Cloud Stations feature new LED BLU technology, which offers
the high-quality brightness and picture clarity customers have come to expect
from Samsung


By incorporating LED BLU, the Cloud Stations maintain a
high contrast ratio and dynamic picture quality, while reducing the overall
impact on the environment. The monitors are also mercury and halogen free,
making them a better selection for eco-conscious organizations.


Samsung Electronics recently announced the launch
of GALAXY Tab 750 and GALAXY Tab 730, the world’s thinnest mobile tablets,
measuring just 8.6 millimeters, in the Indian market.


The GALAXY Tab 750 and 730 feature Samsung’s own TouchWiz
user interface implemented on the Android 3.1 (Honeycomb) platform, offering
faster and smoother transitions between different applications. It allows more
intuitive navigation to and from home screens and broader support of USB
