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. N-series 2.0 includes a number of key enhancements which broadens support to the latest Citrix virtual desktop environments, including integration of Citrix Receiver for Linux 13.0 and support for XenApp® and XenDesktop® 7.1 and 7.5, VDI-in-a-Box™ 5.4, as well as select StoreFront and NetScaler configurations. The expanded solutions support gives those Citrix customers who plan to upgrade their solutions ahead of the curve the opportunity to also drastically reduce their VDI costs without sacrificing their HDX experience.

Originally launched in late 2012, the NComputing N-series is uniquely built to support only Citrix XenApp, XenDesktop, and VDI-in-a-Box environments to ensure that Citrix end users receive the best possible user experience.

Today, NComputing N-series are being used by more than 700 enterprise organizations worldwide.

In addition to support for the newest Citrix solutions, the new NComputing N-series release also provides a vast boost in performance. The integration of the new H.264 codec for video playback in XenDesktop provides high-quality server-rendered video, including HD Flash video in full-screen mode. 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.
