DELIVER THE LATEST WINDOWS DESKTOP EXPERIENCE
Fully optimized for vSpace Pro 11, RX300 delivers virtual desktops from 10 popular Windows operating systems, including Windows 10 and Windows Server 2016.
Cloud-Ready with vCAST streaming support
vCAST reduces the overall server-side CPU usage when watching web videos like YouTube or your local media content without the need for expensive GPUs. This allows for higher quality media streaming utilizing network bandwidth without CPU bottlenecks, thereby supporting more concurrent users. vCAST Streaming is now FREE as part of the vSpace Pro 11.2 release.
CENTRALIZED MANAGEMENT & EXPRESS DEPLOYMENT
The RX300 is easy to configure and automatically receives updates from deployed vSpace Pro 11 servers. Administrators may define a device template with all settings and configurations, then clone and push it to new devices. All can be centrally managed and provisioned by the IT admin with vSpace Pro, allowing control of hundreds of RX300 devices with just a few clicks. Users are always up-to-date with the latest technology.
We also offer PMC, a device management solutions specifically designed for RX-series thin clients, as part of the AMP subscription.
BROAD USB PERIPHERAL SUPPORT
With integrated transparent USB redirection, RX300 utilizes device drivers from the server side to provide extensive peripheral support including mass storage, printers, scanners, smart card readers, headsets or speakers, webcams, signature pads and COM ports in addition to the standard keyboard and mouse.
vSpace Pro 11.2 opens the doors to programmable computers for educators and students.
In vSpace Pro 11.2 we added the ability to communicate directly with Arduino and BBC MicroBit programmable computers.
Now each user has their own environment for programming and writing to these platforms through the USB port on the thin client. Usually, this process would require dedicated PCs or Chromebooks with monthly per-user subscriptions.
Arduino is an open-source electronics platform based on easy-to-use hardware and software. Arduino boards are able to read inputs - light on a sensor, a finger on a button, or a Twitter message - and turn it into an output - activating a motor, turning on an LED, or publishing something online. You can tell your board what to do by sending a set of instructions to the microcontroller on the board.
DUAL MONITOR DISPLAY CAPABILITY
With secondary display capability via NComputing's USB dongle (VGA or DVI) or Pi Zero SDA (HDMI) there is added screen real-estate for increased productivity.
Customizable flexible deployment through ethernet or Wi-Fi connections
RX300 comes with built-in 10/100 Ethernet and Wi-Fi (802.11 b/g/n). Organizations are no longer bound to the wiring infrastructure and can deploy RX300 in any location with Wi-Fi access to deliver the desktop experience.
- Power in (5.1V micro USB)
- HDMI video output
- Speaker jack (16bit/44kHz/Stereo high quality audio)
- 10/100 Mbps Ethernet RJ45 port
- 4 High-Speed USB 2.0 ports with full USB redirection support (2 required for mouse and keyboard)
- Kensington security port
- Sleep mode button disables display output for power saving mode
RASPBIAN LINUX MODE SUPPORT FOR ADDED FLEXIBILITY
RX300 comes equipped with both a ‘Thin Client Mode’ and ‘Raspbian Linux Mode.’ Use the RX300 as a locked down thin client with connections to vSpace Pro 11 and Verde VDI, or as a Raspberry Pi 3 device allowing direct access to Raspbian Linux OS and its popular games (Minecraft), how-to-code applications (Scratch, Python and Java) and productivity tools.

The RX300 can take advantage of all the benefits of AMP for vSpace Pro 11:
- vCAST Streaming: Reduces server-side CPU for web videos and local media content, enabling more concurrent users on your system. Starting with the vSpace Pro 11.2 release, vCAST Streaming is included for free.
- Broadcasting: Extends the MultiView feature by providing screen sharing functionality, allowing one screen to be broadcast to others. Instructors or team leaders can broadcast their screen, or a student's screen, to everyone else. Perfect for presentations, sharing local or web videos, or highlighting other content within a group.
- Smart Cards: Enhanced smart card reader support for single sign-on, access control or other security-related measures.
- Health Monitoring: Monitor your Windows and vSpace resource utilization through the cloud dashboard. See key health metrics including memory usage, connected servers, CPU utilization, and active users, available for up to 30 days of historical data in 24-hour, 7-day and 30-day increments. Receive real-time alerts on excessive usage with the NComputing Health Monitor companion mobile app (android only). Health Monitorin is available as part of the AMP for vSpace Pro 11 package.
Refer to the Quick Installation Guide
Users create virtual sessions by connecting over LAN or Wi-Fi in Thin Client Mode to host machines with Windows or Linux OS running vSpace Pro. If the RX300 is switched to Raspbian Desktop Mode, users can access the Raspbian OS and its available programs. This includes the Linux-based Raspbian OS to run local applications including programming environments (Scratch, Python, Java), office programs (Libre Office) and gaming (Minecraft).
The RX300 is only compatible with vSpace Pro 10.3 or later, including the newly released vSpace Pro 11. Please refer to the vSpace OS compatibility matrix document for details.
Firmware updates are included by downloading the latest version of vSpace Pro.
RX300 firmware can be updated through the following mechanism:
- Firmware update through FTP server; this can be configured in the RX300 local menu or from vSpace Console menu
- Firmware update through vSpace Pro server; this can be configured directly from the vSpace Console menu. Firmware update can be applied to all selected RX300 devices
Width: 76 mm / 3 inches, Depth: 93 mm / 3.7 inches, Height : 30 mm /1.2 inches. It can fit smoothly in your pocket.
