What Can You Build With the PCoIP Client SDK?

The PCoIP Client SDK provides developers the ability to embed a PCoIP session into any program or solution, or create a standalone client with a completely custom user interface and workflow. With complete control over how a PCoIP client is built, you can create clients that incorporate customizations in both pre-session and in-session phases of a PCoIP connection. For example, the following customizations are all typical use cases:

Pre-Session Customizations

  • Customizing the client user interface to create a branded, end-to-end solution using company assets such as:
    • Corporate Logos
    • Slogans, trademarks or other text
    • Corporate colors and iconography
  • Developing customized authentication workflows, either directly or using a broker.
  • Automatically connecting users to specific desktops or applications, based on an identified user type or task.
  • Embedding a remote workload into an application.

In-Session Customizations

  • Client branding, including:
    • Menu item labels
    • Window titles
    • Application icons
    • Company logos
  • Automatic bridging of USB devices.
  • In-session menu bar visibility.
  • Disabling hot keys.
  • Client display size in windowed and fullscreen mode.
  • Configuring resolutions.
  • Securely using local and bridged USB devices.

Complete control of the in-session user experience is possible using the PCoIP Core API.
