Maximize your VDI or Cloud investment with PCoIP Zero Clients

With over three million PCoIP Zero Clients deployed around the world, Teradici has established a significant following, by offering a rich, ultra-secure, and superior desktop experience for office workers and power users alike. PCoIP Zero Clients are hardware-based endpoints that use a highly integrated, purpose-built processor to perform image decompression and decoding; so pixels are transmitted instead of data.


With no application operating system, driver, anti-virus, or codec updates required, PCoIP Zero Clients represent the easiest to manage endpoints ever invented. Both Tera2 and Alta PCoIP Zero Clients are available in a wide array of form factors from over 30 leading partners and are ready for use in under five minutes. They provide universal connectivity to multiple private, public and hybrid cloud environments including Amazon WorkSpaces, Teradici Cloud Access Software, PCoIP Remote Workstation solutions, and VMware Horizon.

All brands of PCoIP Zero Clients can be efficiently configured and managed by Teradici’s PCoIP Management Console.

Delivers a Superior Desktop Experience

PCoIP Zero Clients are stateless endpoints that provide the highest quality user experience. And, compared with the price of a loaded desktop or laptop, they are far less expensive. With Teradici’s powerful hardware decode capabilities, PCoIP Zero Clients provide high resolution, full frame rate 3D graphics and high-definition media even over high-latency networks. The new member of the PCoIP Zero Client family ̶ Alta PCoIP Zero Clients offers integrated WiFi and meets the highest pixel throughput along with 4K UHD display resolution.

Ultra-Secure Endpoints

With PCoIP Zero Clients all application data remains locked down in the data center or cloud environment as only pixels are sent, not data. You can pair PCoIP Zero Clients with USB security authorization, a smart card or proximity card system or other single sign-on devices to comply with the highest security requirements.

Simplified Device Setup and Management

These easy-to-manage endpoints do not require operating system patches that can break applications or create downtime, and don’t have a general purpose CPU, local data storage or an application operating system – saving IT time.

Lower IT Costs

PCoIP Zero Clients are the most cost effective and the highest performance client available with an extended life span; radically reducing desktop provisioning costs. Ongoing management and maintenance costs are significantly less than traditional desktop PCs and thin client devices. And, the minimal hardware component reduces recycling costs.
