  • DisplayPort added to existing DVI and VGA interfaces with up to 2560×1600 resolution and 30” monitor support
  • Up to five times the VDI pixel performance over the previous generation zero client
  • At under 6W of typical system power, Tera2 dual display zero clients consume half the power of the previous generation
  • New quad display zero client support with VMware View
  • Faster USB 2.0 transfer rates
  • Reduced bandwidth with client-side caching and enhanced compression
  • Full power management with Wake-on-LAN support
  • Smaller, more integrated processor enables compact zero client form factors
  • Stronger AES256-bit encryption

Maximum performance of 300 mega pixels per second (Mpps) capable of driving full screens of changing pixels with application refresh rates up to 60 frames per second (fps) ensures the best remote user experience.

New Tera2 host processor key features:

  • Highest performance – enough power to drive full screen video on all monitors
    • 300 Mpps (TERA2240)
    • 150 Mpps (TERA2220)
    • Application refresh rate up to 60 frames per second
  • Increased security
    • Advanced security suitable for top secret classification, including AES-256 and Suite B ciphers
  • Higher resolution and more displays
    • four displays at 1920×1200 resolution, or two at 2560×1600 (TERA2240)
    • two displays at 1920×1200 resolution, or one at 2560×1600 (TERA2220)

Key Remote Workstation Features and Benefits
