SANTA CLARA, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 08/20/14 -- NComputing, a leader in client virtualization solutions, today announced the latest major release of its firmware for the N-series line of Certified Citrix-Ready HDX Verified thin clients.

The technology also includes expanded support for USB webcams for the latest versions of Citrix XenDesktop, delivering customers the video conferencing and collaboration tools they need to function productively in a global market. What's more, additional HDX enhancements at the core of Citrix Receiver for Linux 13.0 help to further boost overall end user experience.
