The RX-RDP is a cloud-ready thin client designed and optimised specifically for Microsoft Remote Desktop Services. Powered by Raspberry Pi3, the RX-RDP provides a rich PC-like experience in an affordable, energy-saving device with a small footprint. For organisations using Microsoft Windows Server or VDI infrastructure, the RX-RDP provides a simple-to-deploy, centrally-managed, high-performing virtual desktop.

The RX-RDP features full-screen, full-motion HD multimedia playback with support for Microsoft RemoteFX and NComputing vCAST Streaming, WiFi connectivity and built-in transparent USB redirection achieving unparalleled peripheral support. Enabling the Microsoft RemoteFX feature for Remote Desktop connection greatly enhances the user’s visual experience. Host systems equipped with supported graphic cards will especially benefit.

Multimedia Support

vCAST Streaming technology for RDP reduces the overall server-side CPU usage for web videos like YouTube or local media content without the need for expensive GPUs. This allows for higher quality media streaming utilizing the network bandwidth without server CPU bottlenecks, thereby supporting more concurrent users. Separate license is required for NComputing vCAST for RDP.

Peripheral USB Support

With integrated transparent USB redirection, RX-RDP utiliaes device drivers from the server side to provide extensive peripheral support including mass storage, smart card readers, audio devices, printers, imaging devices (e.g., webcams), serial devices, HID and custom devices (identified by Vendor ID and Product ID).

PMC Device Management

The RX-RDP is easily configured using the optional PMC Device Management software* by NComputing. An admin can remotely manage RX-RDP devices over local and wide-area networks, including locations behind firewalls and NAT-routers through an easy-to-use, web-based user interface.Administrators setup device profiles complete with all settings and configurations, then push the profile to individual or grouped devices. Only a few clicks are needed to schedule device firmware updates, access the summary dashboard or view the detailed event logging. Users are always up-to-date with the latest technology.

Customer Use Case

The RX-RDP was developed with SMB/SME clients in mind–an affordable, high-performance solution based on the same RaspberryPi 3 platform as our other wildly successful RX-series devices. Not only is it easy to set up and deploy, it has great peripheral compatibility and enhanced multimedia support. The RX-RDP can be used with Microsoft RDS, as well as their VERDE VDI virtualisation solution.
