- Samsung Electronics expanded its cloud monitor portfolio today with the release of the TC222L (21.5”) and the TC242L (23.5”) thin client displays. Powered by IGEL’s industry leading thin client software and combined with Samsung’s industry leading display technology, the new monitors offer businesses a highly unique desktop solution for remote access of critical documents and data through the cloud.
In partnership with IGEL, a leading global thin client vendor, Samsung’s TC222L and TC242L cloud monitors come with several embedded configuration, management and support tools. Both displays feature the Linux operating system, empowering remote network and internet program access. IGEL’s complementary Universal Management Suite 5 (UMS5) platform offers an easy-to-use console for added visibility of the clients’ configurations. The console also enables managers to automatically apply configuration adjustments to an entire deployment of thin client assets throughout the enterprise.
IGEL’s embedded software provides reliable multi-protocol connectivity to mainstream VDI environments and cloud resources, such as Citrix, VMware and Microsoft, added by a powerful management tool for remote configuration, monitoring, reporting and administrative automation. Through the integrated Linux Thin Client OS software platform, users can securely consolidate bulky desktop applications and equipment into a series of cloud-based virtual applications and desktops. The result is a sleek all-in-one design that minimizes cabling and consolidates I/O for a clean, clutter-free workspace.
“Businesses today need cutting edge, cost-effective technologies that offer the flexibility to support remote operations yet safeguard against emerging data security threats,” said Seog-gi Kim, Senior Vice President, Visual Display Business at Samsung Electronics. “Our new TC222L and TC242L monitors bring the power, protection and capability of IGEL’s renowned remote automation tools to Samsung’s pioneering display technologies to create a cost-efficient, all-in-one solution for any business environment.”
“We are delighted about Samsung’s decision towards the best software solution provider on the market,” said Erhard Behnke, Managing Director at IGEL. “The Strategic partnership of Samsung and IGEL is a true win-win situation as Samsung will be enabled to deliver an innovative all-in-one thin client solution to their customers, and IGEL will benefit directly from the entrance into the enterprise display market. Combining our decades of experience in thin client software and management specialization with Samsung’s power in display technologies result in a secure, cost-effective and energy-efficient thin client solution.”
Samsung will showcase its TC222L and TC242L displays at the upcoming Citrix Synergy conference, taking place May 24-26 at the Sands Expo in Las Vegas.
