Introducing RX300, a cloud-ready thin client built on Raspberry Pi 3

RX300 Cloud Ready Thin Client

We are excited to launch RX300, a cloud-ready, dual-screen capable and Wi-Fi ready thin client for Windows and Linux, built on the latest Raspberry Pi 3. Optimized specifically for NComputing’s award-winning vSpace Pro 10 desktop virtualization solution, RX300 enables a high-performance PC-like experience alongside cloud-ready features including NComputing’s vCAST streaming technology support.

With over 3 million NComputing thin client delivered worldwide, the addition of the RX300 thin client further expands our offerings and commitments to provide easy-to-use, affordable, powerful and centrally managed computing solutions to our customers.

Ease of deployment and centrally managed virtual desktop features make the RX300 ideal for use in SMB and education. The compact RX300 device offers the lowest initial acquisition cost of NComputing’s product families ensuring an accessible desktop virtualization solution for customers.

RX300 combined with vSpace Pro 10 delivers full-screen, full-motion high quality HD multimedia playback with vCAST streaming technology support. Users can directly stream web videos (vCAST Web Streaming) or local media content (vCAST Media Streaming) resulting in significant reduction in overall server-side CPU usage and eliminating the need for expensive GPUs. Users can enjoy smooth video and fast loading times utilizing the network bandwidth without server CPU bottlenecks, thereby supporting more concurrent users.

RX300 delivers virtual desktops from 9 popular Windows operating systems, including Windows 10 and Windows Server 2016. RX300 provides the latest PC-experience with a fraction of the TCO compared to traditional PC/laptop replacements.

Our customers have been asking us to provide a thin client that is cloud-ready, Wi-Fi enabled and dual monitor display capable. We are excited to introduce RX300 and it will be available at a NComputing reseller near you soon!
