Citrix Systems adds HDX 3D to XenDesktop

To deliver professional graphics in real-time over any network

By CBR Staff Writer

Citrix Systems has enhanced its high-definition virtual desktop experience for professional graphics environments. The new HDX 3D technology, available as a feature of Citrix XenDesktop, is expected to deliver a high-definition desktop experience applications to users in any location, over any network.

According to Citrix, the new HDX 3D capability allows organisations to leverage talent globally, while also housing data centrally and assisting in real-time collaboration among disperse design teams.

The company said that HDX 3D is part of a range of HDX technologies from Citrix, which goes beyond a single protocol to address problems in all parts of the IT infrastructure, from the datacentre, to the network, to the device. Combined with the company’s HDX Adaptive Orchestration technology, XenDesktop can also adapt to changes in the environment by applying the technologies for each user scenario.

The company claims that XenDesktop with HDX 3D provides the best performance possible over the WAN, and over a local area network (LAN). HDX 3D consumes 10x less bandwidth than alternatives allowing IT to implement virtual desktops without going through any network upgrades. Citrix XenDesktop with HDX technologies can deliver virtual desktops to all office-based users within the enterprise through a single desktop virtualisation product.

Citrix said that its desktop virtualisation product portfolio will be further enhanced this year with HDX technologies that enable the delivery of multimedia applications including rich media, voice and video.

Raj Dhingra, group vice president and general manager of XenDesktop product group at Citrix Systems, said: “Citrix continues to raise the bar on desktop virtualisation user experience with HDX 3D delivering the best real-time graphics performance.

“The addition of HDX 3D significantly enhances our breadth of capabilities that ensure an unparalleled experience for every user in every scenario. XenDesktop with HDX Technology provides the only desktop virtualisation solution that can deliver the best possible user experience for every user type without sacrificing performance over the LAN or WAN.”
