What is PCoIP® Technology?¶
PCoIP is a display protocol that encodes a complete desktop or workload, which is then displayed through a PCoIP client device over a standard IP network. PCoIP technology uses advanced display compression to provide remote computing solutions such as remote physical workstations, GPU-enabled virtual workstations, or standard virtual desktops as a progressive alternative to a local deployment model. It also supports many of the devices available to physical machines, including keyboard, mouse, USB devices, tablets, multiple monitors, printers, audio devices, as well as custom options.
The PCoIP protocol ensures ultra-secure remote connectivity between a remote computer and a broad range of client devices including stateless Zero Clients, software clients and mobile clients. Display images are compressed and transmitted as a stream of encrypted pixels, ensuring corporate IP remains secured within the enterprise data center.
