RIDGEFIELD PARK, N.J., May 9, 2012 – Samsung Electronics America Inc., a subsidiary of Samsung Electronics Corporation, today introduced two new Citrix-dedicated zero client monitors - the SyncMaster S-series and B-series cloud stations at Citrix Synergy. The new displays will be on show May 9-11at booth #408 at the Moscone West Convention Center in San Francisco, Calif.

In addition, Samsung also announces plans to release a SyncMaster cloud display with an embedded Citrix HDX-capable “System-on-Chip” (SoC) provided by Texas Instruments in Q3 2012. Built on a high-performance System-on-Chip platform and optimized for Citrix HDX™ technology, Samsung expects that its SoC-based SyncMaster cloud display will be HDX Ready when available.

“Our goal is to achieve the number one market position for cloud displays within the next six years,” said Tod Pike, senior vice president – Enterprise Business Division, Samsung Electronics America. “With the introduction of these latest cloud offerings, made possible through a partnership with Texas Instruments, we will continue to provide the desktop virtualization market with display products that enable businesses to create more efficient and secure corporate environments.”

“The new S-series and B-series SyncMaster devices are the latest examples of Samsung’s strong commitment to cloud displays and Citrix desktop virtualization,” said Aimee Catalano, vice president of Alliance Marketing at Citrix. “Samsung is a strong alliance partner and we are pleased that Samsung has furthered its commitment to the HDX SoC initiative.”

At Citrix Synergy, Samsung will be showcasing three S-series models (TS190C, TS220C, TS240C), which include an embedded Citrix zero client, and one B-series model (TB-CH), designed to be used in conjunction with a customer’s legacy monitors. These zero-client displays enable simple configuration, fast booting, minimal firmware and automatic updates.

These Citrix-dedicated monitors offer desktop virtualization and provide a clean, efficient working environment by allowing the user to remove the PC from their desk. As a result, users can work anywhere by accessing their own apps and data through a tablet PC, such as the Samsung Galaxy Tab.
Samsung display products are available through Samsung resellers and distribution channels, which can be located by calling 1-800-SAMSUNG or by visiting www.samsung.com.
