Optimized for Citrix HDX

OPTIMIZED FOR CITRIX HDX

NComputing is an official Citrix HDX Ready Pi partner.

The RX-HDX is fully optimized for Citrix HDX Ready integration delivering a low-cost and powerful desktop virtualization solution for enterprises. 

Powered by the latest Raspberry Pi 3 platform with quadcore Broadcom 2837 SoC and Stratodesk NoTouch OS, RX-HDX provides the full HD multimedia capabilities demanded by knowledge works and in other demanding environments using less than 5 watts of power.

The RX-HDX thin client incorporates full client-side rendering for efficient playback of video content and uses server-side rendering for flash video playback with resolutions up to 1920x1200.

INTEGRATED ENTERPRISE-GRADE SECURITY AND MANAGEABILITY

The RX-HDX integrates enterprise-grade device management software powered by Stratodesk NoTouch Center, developed specifically with enterprise customers in mind, providing a highly scalable, flexible and easy-to-use single management point for RX-HDX devices.

Organize deployments in single or multiple sites with one software solution that simplifies management tasks including firmware updates, configuration changes, device resets and more.

By allowing administrators to access and manage all RX-HDX devices from a single location, regardless of the size or number of deployment sites, we dramatically reduce the administrative overhead needed to maintain and control their environment.

Citrix Casting and proximity authentication

The RX-HDX Citrix Ready workspace hub is a secure, powerful and low cost enterprise thin client & IoT hub that transforms the workplace.

Improve employee productivity with session roaming and screen casting, allowing a Citrix session to pass from a mobile device to the workspace hub, or redirect the display from their device to an unoccupied workspace hub connected to the TV in the conference room.

Skype

Skype® for Business Optimization

Deliver clear, crisp high-definition audio-video conferencing with integrated HDX Real-Time Media Engine support.

Users can seamlessly participate in audio-video or audio-only calls to and from other HDX RealTime Media Engine users, native Skype for Business, and other standards-based desktop video and conference room systems.

Flexible Endpoint and IoT Hub

RX-HDX provides flexible endpoint deployment with built-in 10/100 Ethernet, Wi-Fi (802.11 b/g/n) with 802.1x and Bluetooth connectivity.

The newly released RX-HDX+ (based on Raspberry Pi3 Model B+) expands WiFi support to 5GHz deployments within the 802.11 b/g/n/ac offering.

These endpoints are also IoT edge devices, part of the Citrix Workspace IoT. Using Azure Edge technology it is capable of executing workflow automation.

RX-HDX+ includes 5GHz Wifi

Broad USB peripheral support

BROAD USB PERIPHERAL SUPPORT

RX-HDX allows transparent redirection of USB peripheral devices including mass storage, printers, scanners, smart card readers, headsets or speakers, webcams, COM ports, and 3D mice in addition to the standard keyboard and mouse. Network-connected printers can also be redirected to Citrix sessions.
