PCoIP Protocol enhancements for graphics-intensive vApp

by | Apr 5, 2019

Teradici, the creator of PCoIP technology and Cloud Access Software, announced significant enhancements to its multi-codec PCoIP protocol to improve the experience of users working with graphics-intensive applications. “Even for the most challenging use cases as content shifts to larger and more immersive formats, PCoIP Ultra delivers uncompromising quality, security, and efficiency”, said David Smith, CEO of Teradici.

The PCoIP Ultra enhancements use an expanded array of encoders, enabling the choice of the most efficient hardware or software codecs according to content characteristics. This flexibility results in a faster, more interactive experience for users of remote workstations working with high-resolution content, including creative design applications, dynamic wireframes, video editorial suites, and animation tools. The first release supports:

  • 4K/UHD high frame rate content

  • Efficient scaling across multicore CPUs leveraging AVX2 instruction sets

  • Expanded multi-codec architecture for third party codecs, including H.264/HEVC

For users – typically working with high-demand applications such as those used for visual effects, broadcast video, animation, computer-aided design (CAD), financial trading, or medical imaging – the improvements will enable them to work remotely with these emerging content formats as seamlessly as if they were using a high-powered, expensive workstation at their desks.

The advantages of this new enhancements can be easily applied to your desktop virtualization infrastructure thanks to the UDS Enterprise connection broker. This software for VDI and vApp management and deployment is fully compatible with PCoIP protocol. The support of this technology makes possible to deliver virtual desktops and applications supporting any graphics-intensive application.

The PCoIP Ultra enhancements will be available as a technical preview to Cloud Access Software customers in mid-April. General availability is scheduled for May 2019. See the official announcement for more information.

It is a regulation characterized by significant fines for non-compliance since its implementation in 2018.

How to avoid issues with virtual machines

Virtualization comes with a wide range of benefits for organizations. It helps cut IT costs and reduces downtime while increasing efficiency and productivity. It also increases the resiliency of networks, primarily when disasters occur, and promotes more green-friendly operations.

However, using virtual machines also comes with a set of downsides. Information security may get compromised, workloads mixed up, separation duties lost, among other issues. It is vital to know how you can get over these problems, and that’s what this article will discuss.
