Samsung Monitors Receive Vmware Ready 4.5™ Certification for Groundbreaking PC-Over-IP® Monitors

RIDGEFIELD PARK, N.J., September 1, 2010 – Samsung Electronics America Inc., a subsidiary of Samsung Electronics Corporation, announced at VMware World that its NC190 and NC240 monitors are now VMWare 4.5 certified. The integrated PCoIP monitors allow secure access to remote servers and data centers, and this new certification supports Common Access Card (CAC) technologies which are mandatory for United States government agencies. The NC190 and NC240, 19” and 23.6” zero-client displays provide an alternative to desktop PCs, enabling highly secure access to any PC-over-IP (PCoIP®)-enabled remote host. Users can connect to centralized servers, without the need for individual workstations at desks.



“Samsung’s NC190 and NC240 were among the first VMware Ready™ Certified PCoIP monitors on the market earlier this year and with the release of VMWare 4.5 certification they bring a more efficient experience for end-users,” said Young Bae, director of display at Samsung Electronics Enterprise Business Division. “Adopting this technology allows government, healthcare, and any other end-user with highly sensitive information to control, the ability to access information on remote hosts, manages version control when file-sharing, and keep work spaces clutter free.”



“Samsung is a valuable member of the VMware partner ecosystem, helping proliferate PCoIP® as part of its zero-client offerings to deliver a rich end-user experience while reducing management costs for IT organizations,” said Patrick Harr, vice president, desktop virtualization, VMware. “By receiving VMWare 4.5 certification on the NC190 and NC240 monitors, Samsung has further demonstrated its investment in providing secure, remote virtual computing in a corporate environment.”



Uncompromised user experience
The Samsung NC190 and NC240 contain a range of features providing an impressive user experience. They each offer a high definition picture ideal for CAD/CAM, graphic design and 3D rendering environments. Additional features designed to support user experience are the inclusion of four USB ports for easily added peripherals, a compact design maximizing desktop space, HD-ready video viewing and ultra fast response rates.



Exceptional security
Data is highly secure in the NC190 / NC240 environment. No data leaves the remote host or datacenter, ensuring that individual workstations cannot be hacked or infected with viruses or spyware. All images transmitted to the displays are encrypted, providing a highly secure connection. With VMWare4.5 certification, the monitors support CAC technology, particularly important for government organizations.


Additionally, USB authentication ensures that no unauthorized devices can be attached to the system. This makes them ideal for use in environments such as finance, government and military.



True zero-client
The Samsung NC190 and NC240 are true zero-client displays, allowing connections direct from the desktop display to a central host. The fanless screens contain no OS, drivers or hard drives. They provide a low-power alternative to traditional desktop computers while integrating seamlessly into existing systems which use PCoIP®-enabled rack workstations, towers or blade PCs. This reduces maintenance costs as all software installed on the server automatically extends to each user’s desktop.


The Samsung NC190 and NC240 are available now with a MSRP of $698 and $815, respectively. Both monitors are available through Samsung resellers and distribution channels, which can be located by calling 1-800-SAMSUNG or by visiting www.samsung.com.
