Don’t you wish there was a remote desktop appliance with 4, 8 or as many as 16 display connections?
There is. Cubix LaserCube supports 2, 4, 6, 8, up to 16 displays per user. LaserCube also increases performance by locating powerful graphics controllers on the operator's desktop.
Remotely supporting 3 or more displays per operator is a daunting challenge because thin client and remote desktop appliances lack two essential elements for success: a sufficient number of display connections and adequate bandwidth to support a lot of remote video output.
Thin-client desktops are limited to 2 displays, which is unfortunate because workers become more productive with more displays.Remote desktop appliances have many advantages and one notable disadvantage. They offer the advantages of small footprints, quiet diskless operation, reduced heat, and reduced power requirements at the display locations. But they cannot support 3 or more high-resolution displays.
LaserCube desktop appliances overcome the limited number of displays supported of the thin-client and virtual desktops computing models by locating GPUs at the user locations. A single mouse and keyboard connected to a LaserCube can traverse all the remote desktop displays at the operator location – up to as many as 16 monitors. LaserCube also increases performance by placing all the power of the graphics controllers on the operator's desktop.
With the ability to open thin-client application sessions across as many as 16 displays, LaserCubes eliminate the constant and continuous need to minimize and maximize applications imposed by thin-client appliances’ two-display support limitation.
Now thin-client users can quickly scan applications, keeping as many opened and maximized as needed, which saves users time in searching the task bar for programs and eliminates mistakes. Plus real-time program updates can be viewed in maximized applications as they happen across multiple video displays at high resolutions.
Cubix’s diskless LaserCube appliances are smaller than a shoebox, yet they are powerful enough to support 16 displays for energy, transportation, process control, financial trading and other mission-critical environments.
