Teradici, TI Team up at CES to Showcase the OMAP 4 Platform
For the past four decades, thousands have flocked to the international Consumer Electronics Show (CES (News - Alert)), touted as the world’s largest consumer technology tradeshow that features almost 3,000 exhibitors. One company excited that the show has finally started today is Teradici, the developer of the PC-over-IP (PCoIP) protocol that enables a true PC experience for desktop virtualization.
In addition to announcing its participation at the 2012 International CES, taking place Jan. 10-13 in Las Vegas, Nev., Teradici is excited about its joint technology demonstration with Texas Instruments (News - Alert) Incorporated (TI) which will shed light on the performance and efficiency of both the OMAP4460 smart multicore processor and Teradici PCoIP protocol.
"The consumerization of IT is a powerful motivator and this collaboration between TI and Teradici will allow corporations to enable powerful desktop-like experiences on a plethora of mobile devices,” said Rich Tehrani, CEO of TMC (News - Alert). "This development as well as similar ones from the industry bodes well for the BYOD culture being embraced by businesses worldwide."
The demo will take place at the TI Wireless booth, North Hall, MR N116, and will showcase the PCoIP protocol delivering a VMware View virtual desktop using TI’s OMAP4460 mobile processor. TI will also be displaying a concurrent video conferencing session running on the same OMAP 4 platform. This demonstration will show the continuing evolution of the PCoIP protocol which is expanding to support new hardware and software platforms, according to company officials.
“By collaborating with TI on the OMAP 4 platform, we are expanding our portfolio of optimized solutions to provide mobile and enterprise customers with multimedia-rich virtual desktop performance,” said Dan Cordingley, president and chief executive officer. “Teradici’s continuing innovations in hardware, software and protocol deliver even greater flexibility for workers to access their VDI environments remotely and use new client form factors such as tablets and phone devices.”
According to Dennis Rauschmayer, general manager, OMAP enterprise business line, TI, the efficiency of the PCoIP protocol in a virtual desktop environment capitalizes on the performance of the OMAP 4 platform which allows TI to deliver a “very compelling virtual desktop user experience.”
“OMAP 4’s smart multicore architecture allows users to experience the high-performance remote virtual desktop session on a monitor while concurrently enjoying a full Android (News - Alert) experience or demanding application such as an HD video conference session on a second screen,” Rauschmayer added.
