ViewSonic and NaviSite to Showcase NVIDIA GRID at VMworld 2014

ViewSonic Corp., a leading global provider of visual solution products, announces that it has joined up with NaviSite and NVIDIA to showcase the ultimate VDI client at VMworld, August 24-28, in San Francisco, CA, in booth #2146. ViewSonic’s new CDE8451-TL 84-inch, 4K, touch-screen display, in combination with NaviSite’s new Desktop as a Service (DaaS) that features NVIDIA GRID™ technology, is ideal for use in collaborative and highly interactive work environments.

NVIDIA GRID technology offers the ability to offload graphics processing from the CPU to the GPU in a virtualized environment allowing applications – from Microsoft® Office to high-performance, graphics-rich software – to be better utilized and applied across cloud and desktop servers.

By working with NaviSite to offer a showing of a scalable, flexible cloud-hosted solution, ViewSonic will demonstrate the combination of an off-site, cloud-based virtual infrastructure with GPU virtualization and how it can fit the needs and requirements of a manageable and flexible DaaS system. Together, ViewSonic’s CDE-8451-TL will illustrate the unique user experience that GPU virtualization can bring to help eliminate potential obstacles in VDI adoption.

“We’re pleased to be working with NaviSite and NVIDIA to bring GRID technology to the forefront and show how GPU virtualization can work in a DaaS-based virtual desktop environment,” said Michael Holstein, vice president of business development and emerging technologies at ViewSonic Americas. “This allows a new level of workstation performance to organizations that prefer to implement a cloud-hosted VDI infrastructure because of OPEX benefits.”

“A high-quality graphics experience is now a reality for VDI users,” said Andrew Cresci, general manager of the NVIDIA GRID business at NVIDIA. “ViewSonic’s display is a great way to showcase the NaviSite and NVIDIA GRID solution and illustrate how users can take advantage of a graphics-accelerated, cloud-hosted PC without any compromise in performance, even with the most demanding applications.”

The CDE8451-TL is an 84-inch, six-point simultaneous touch, interactive large-format display with 4K Ultra HD resolution. The large format LED backlit screen and 4K (3840x2160) resolution delivers the finest in color, clarity and image detail at four times the detail of traditional 1080p Full HD displays.

ViewSonic will also demonstrate the new SC-Z56 quad output zero client and the new SD-Z246 zero client with integrated 24-inch LED and ergonomic stand. With one of the most diverse lines in the market, ViewSonic is the VDI endpoint authority. The company continues to bring leading-edge products to market, including Integrated Thin Client and Zero Client Displays, along with discrete Thin and Zero Clients that deliver a seamless desktop experience in VDI networks.

Visitors to the ViewSonic booth will have the opportunity to test the power of NVIDIA GRID technology for themselves via the GRID Test Drive. The first of its kind, GRID Test Drive is a simple and secure way for anyone who is interested in experiencing the benefit of graphics acceleration for virtualized desktops to do so immediately without first having to build a proof-of-concept private cloud. The Test Drive comes pre-loaded with a range of applications from basic web-based programs to high-end professional 3D applications, plus users can download and try other applications of their choice.

For basic one-to-one voice or video calling solutions, WebRTC has proven to be a very powerful technology. Although WebRTC’s core functionality is to provide secure, real-time p2p media streaming, leveraging native platform features and server-side components brings up new communication capabilities for web and native mobile applications, allowing for advanced multi-user use cases such as video broadcasting, conferencing, and media recording.
IoT generates lots of temporal data. But how do you unlock its value? You need to discover patterns that are repeatable in vast quantities of data, understand their meaning, and implement scalable monitoring across multiple data streams in order to monetize the discoveries and insights. Motif discovery and deep learning platforms are emerging to visualize sensor data, to search for patterns and to build application that can monitor real time streams efficiently. In his session at @ThingsExpo, ...
There will be new vendors providing applications, middleware, and connected devices to support the thriving IoT ecosystem. This essentially means that electronic device manufacturers will also be in the software business. Many will be new to building embedded software or robust software. This creates an increased importance on software quality, particularly within the Industrial Internet of Things where business-critical applications are becoming dependent on products controlled by software. Qua...

In addition to all the benefits, IoT is also bringing new kind of customer experience challenges - cars that unlock themselves, thermostats turning houses into saunas and baby video monitors broadcasting over the internet. This list can only increase because while IoT services should be intuitive and simple to use, the delivery ecosystem is a myriad of potential problems as IoT explodes complexity. So finding a performance issue is like finding the proverbial needle in the haystack.

Early adopters of IoT viewed it mainly as a different term for machine-to-machine connectivity or M2M. This is understandable since a prerequisite for any IoT solution is the ability to collect and aggregate device data, which is most often presented in a dashboard. The problem is that viewing data in a dashboard requires a human to interpret the results and take manual action, which doesn’t scale to the needs of IoT.
