HP has announced a versatile addition to its t410 Smart Zero Client family.
Offering a virtual desktop environment for businesses with remarkable multimedia graphics and support for two displays, the new HP t410 Smart Zero Client can connect using all major virtualization protocols, compared to most competing zero clients which are built to handle only a single protocol.
Also introduced is the HP Velocity, a QoS (quality of service) software engine that improves network performance for virtual desktop environments. HP Velocity will come pre-installed as a feature on HP thin clients, including the HP t410, HP t510 and HP t610.
The HP t410 Smart Zero Client is built with a high-performance Texas Instruments TMS320DM8148 ARM Cortex processor and includes 1GB DDR3 SDRAM, 2GB eMMC Flash memory capacity and support for dual displays up to 1920 x 1080 pixels. It enables businesses to future-proof their investment by supporting all three leading virtualization protocols in one device, using Digital Signal Processor (DSP) Acceleration and ARM Neon extensions to enable a robust PC-like user experience.
The HP t410 Smart Zero Client will start shipping in August with a starting price of US$269.
HP Velocity is available worldwide as a standard feature on the HP t510 Thin Client and HP t610 Flexible Series Thin Clients. It will be available on the HP t410 Smart Zero Client and HP t410 All-in-One Smart Zero Client from August 2012.
