Wyse introduced its V-Class Dual-Video family of thin computers, which supports high-resolution displays and the option to connect two displays simultaneously. Designed for use with Microsoft Terminal Services, Citrix Presentation Server, VMware, web-based, and full-function streaming environments, the V-Class Dual-Video includes dual-monitor window management allowing the user to take advantage of two monitors in a remote-computing environment.
"The new V-Class Dual-Video family addresses the requirements of customers asking for higher display resolutions (up to WUXGA 1920 x 1080 pixels), superior image quality, and support for analog and digital displays through the new DVI-I interface," said Bill Platt, Executive Vice President of Products, Wyse Technology. "This solution also rounds out our offering with our Wyse V-Class product family, now giving us options for dual-video."
The new family is based on the VIA Eden C7 processor, and uses only 12 watts of power making it one of the most economical units available, said Wyse. The family is four times faster than the models it replaces, at the same or lower prices, according to the company.
The new product line includes models based on Windows CE 5.0, Linux, and Windows XP embedded. Models are available immediately starting at US$399, according to the company. Dual video capability requires an optional DVI-I to dual display cable, available from Wyse.
