  • (1888PressRelease) August 12, 2010 - Thinspace, the UK's only thin client computing vendor, has announced the launch of the TST1000, its PCoIP® zero client appliance for demanding corporate users with rich multimedia PC needs within organisations requiring cost saving, carbon reduction and security benefits of server-based computing.

    The TST1000 enables organisations, from 3D design workshops to world-class universities, to further reduce the cost of desktop IT, ease environmental compliance and improve security management, by extending highly controlled, server centric IT environments to power users of technology who would otherwise require expensive, high performance PCs.

    Utilising the latest Teradici TERA1100 PCoIP zero client processor, Thinspace's TST1000 is CPU-less, driveless, stateless and operating system independent. Working in a 1:1 environment, this solution delivers high resolution, full frame rate 3D graphics and HD media, with full USB peripheral interoperability provided locally over a LAN, or remotely via high latency WAN.

    TST1000 is a unique client option that provides customers the flexibility they need to deploy end-to-end solutions with a variety of end point options to meet a broad range of user and business needs. This includes supporting all user types from task workers to mainstream office workers in a VMware View™ environment as well as the most demanding high-performance graphics or visualization application users on remote workstations.

    Beyond reduced Total Cost of Ownership, lower power consumption (15 watts) and environmental benefits the TST1000 saves space on the corporate desktop and further aids productivity by creating noiseless workspaces.

    Paul Craddock, Technical Director, Thinspace, said: "Organisations large and small are looking for ways to reduce the cost, but increase the control, of desktop IT. The TST 1000 enables them to extend their server based computing models to data intensive or multimedia applications that previously still required expensive local hardware."

    Markets for the TST1000 range from large organisations that need to provide multimedia content to many users concurrently, for example universities or training centres conducting computer based teaching, through to small graphic design or digital marketing companies looking to reduce costs but for whom rich media content production is critical.

    "The TST1000 is the latest milestone towards Thinspace's vision of replacing as much costly, high-maintenance and unsecure desktop PC hardware in the world as possible with beneficial thin client and server based alternatives," said Craddock.

    The TST1000 costs £330 and is available now from Thinspace authorised resellers.
