IGEL Technology America is one of the world's leading thin client vendors, one of America's fastest-growing thin client brands and Europe’s No. 1 in Linux-based thin clients (data according to IDC Thin Client Tracker 2015).
What are Thin Clients?
Thin clients are a cost efficient and energy saving alternative to PCs. Today thin clients are used to access all kinds of office applications and CRM tools, as well as demanding videos and multimedia presentations or digital dictation solutions, and more. They increase data security and compliance with laws and regulations like HIPAA, as sensitive data is not stored locally, and the use of USB-ports can be managed remotely by the administrator. Thin clients come without fans or rotating hard drives, which means they are much more reliable than PCs and increase the overall availability of IT while reducing downtime and licence costs. The low energy consumption reduces costs and CO2 emissions compared to PCs. Together with an efficient remote management of all local thin client settings, they offer a fast return on investment. The introduction and roll out of cloud computing or virtual desktops or classic server-based computing becomes economically favorable when cost-efficient thin clients replace PCs. The total cost of ownership (TCO) of the IT infrastructure is decreased sustainably.
The IGEL UD Pocket is the portable thin client for evolving workspace environments. No larger than a paper clip, UD Pocket provides the flexibility to boot from IGEL Universal Desktop or the local operating system on a PC, laptop or any compatible endpoint device. A high performance solution that enables remote and mobile workers to access cloud services, server-based computing applications or virtual desktops. UD Pocket is automatically integrated into the IGEL Universal Management Suite (UMS) for remote support, deployment and management. UD Pocket extends the functionality of existing hardware with two operating systems on one endpoint.
Devices running a Windows 7 or Windows 10 operating system and an installed UMA are reliably and securely managed by our UMS. In this way UMA managed devices fit seamlessly into the IGEL solution portfolio – whether they are thin clients, notebooks or workstations.
The new IGEL UD9: All-in-one thin client with quad core processor
IGEL's popular UD9 all-in-one model is now a compact powerhouse. From now on, the 21.5 inch widescreen display will hide a powerful quad-core processor which will enable the UD9 to effortlessly meet future requirements for modern, demanding thin client computing. The CPU will be backed up by 2 GB of main memory for all operating systems. This will allow demanding multitasking in all usage scenarios. With numerous interfaces including USB 3.0 and a DisplayPort, as well as optional features such as a touchscreen and WLAN, the IGEL UD9 can be used in a wide range of areas.
Improved performance at no extra cost: The IGEL UD3 with quad core processor
With a major hardware update, IGEL Technology is improving the performance of its IZ3/UD3 all-round range. Germany's best-selling thin client will feature an AMD quad core processor from the Embedded G range (codename "Steppe Eagle") with 1.2 - 1.6 GHz that will offer even more efficient access to virtual desktops and applications from Citrix, VMware and Microsoft. The new CPU will be backed up by 2 GB of DDR3L RAM memory for demanding multitasking applications. The IGEL UD3 will also support 4K displays via the integrated DisplayPort making it ideal for modern workspaces. Together with proven features such as Dualview, USB 3.0 and an approx. 50% reduction in power consumption, IGEL is offering more thin client for the same money.
In addition, IMI provides the interface for REST-compatible programming languages to connect autonomous systems together. So the management of IGEL Clients can take place from the Enterprise Management system or through additional company-specific scripts or programs, in conjunction with the industry-leading IGEL Universal Management Suite (UMS).

The IGEL UD6 with quad core processor: High-performance computing with thin clients
The IGEL UD6 expands the range of applications for thin client computing considerably and is aimed at the most demanding power users. With the appropriate server infrastructure in the background, the high-end device easily provides the performance required for CAD applications, unified communication, film editing or big data visualization. With its Intel Celeron quad core processors offering speeds of up to 2.42 GHz the UD6 allow the use of Citrix HDX 3D Pro technology which was specially developed for accessing server-based 3D applications. The high performance enables entirely new usage options so that thin clients can now be used for workstations that previously required a particularly high-performance product.
High-performance multimedia ace: the IGEL UD5 thin client
A brand new version of the IGEL UD5thin client is available – with improvements on the inside and the outside. The new model features not only a new chassis but also a faster dual-core processor based on Intel Bay Trail chipset technology and ample memory, making it the ideal unit for playing back demanding multimedia content in virtual IT environments. A further improved hardware framework featuring an Intel Celeron dual-core processor with up to 2.58 GHz allows users to enjoy all the cost and security benefits of thin clients while taking advantage of their great versatility.
