Wyse TCX Multimedia Receives Citrix Ready Designation
Breakthrough Software Recognized for Delivering “PC-Like Experience” on Thin Clients over Citrix Application Delivery Infrastructure
London, UK – October 25, 2007 – Wyse Technology, the global leader in thin computing, today announced that its recently announced Wyse TCX Multimedia software has received the coveted Citrix Ready(tm) designation. This verification process confirms that Wyse TCX Multimedia has successfully met stringent testing and criteria set by Citrix.
Wyse TCX Multimedia delivers multimedia capabilities across Citrix’s Application Delivery Infrastructure products, including Citrix Presentation Server(tm) and Citrix XenDesktop(tm), for Wyse thin clients. Wyse TCX Multimedia is the first software product that extends Citrix ICA’s powerful functionality to include rich full screen, full frame rate multimedia display on select thin clients, making this environment suitable for a whole new class of knowledge workers with more demanding needs for their application delivery model.
“Our partnership with Wyse continues to extend what’s technically possible at a desktop level,” said David Jones, corporate vice president, business development, for Citrix. “Wyse TCX Multimedia really showcases the versatility of thin clients when integrated with our application delivery platform and supports Citrix’s ongoing Multimedia Virtualization Initiative. These new multimedia capabilities will bring users around to thinking about virtualized desktops as a no-compromise approach to enterprise computing.”
“This designation from Citrix is a further proof-point on how this partnership continues to extend and enhance the capabilities of our thin computing devices,” said Jeff McNaught, Chief Marketing Officer for Wyse Technology. “Our TCX Multimedia software adds an entirely new level of sophistication on thin clients running the Citrix ICA protocol. These new multimedia capabilities help eliminate one of the last inhibitors to broad thin client adoption.”
Wyse Technology is also a partner in the Citrix Ready Initiative, which is designed to help customers identify the best third-party solutions that add the greatest value in Citrix driven environments.
