Microsoft RemoteFX on IGEL Linux Thin Clients
What does RemoteFX do?
Microsoft Windows Server 2008 R2 will be taking advantage of this release to accelerate delivery of new features, mainly desktop virtualization capabilities meeting increasing needs of customers.
Microsoft RemoteFX leverages the power of virtualized graphics resources and advanced codecs to recreate the fidelity of hardware-assisted graphics acceleration, including support for 3D content and Windows Aero, on a remote user’s device. This allows for a local-like, remote user experience over a variety of possible host, client and network configurations. Dynamic Memory is a new memory management feature of Windows Server 2008 R2 Hyper-V.
IGEL RemoteFX Support - The first and only Linux implementation on the market
The Linux-based thin and zero clients IZ2 RFX, IZ3 RFX, UD2 LX, UD3 LX, UD5 LX, UD6 LX, UD9 LX and UD10 LX as well as the IGEL Universal Desktop Converter 2 (UDC2) software support Microsoft RemoteFX. This means that any content can now be displayed remotely on a Linux-based thin or zero client, providing a high quality user experience, without the need for any locally installed codecs or multimedia redirection.
