Ready for Simplified Desktops?

PCoIP is a game changer for productivity; fully address end users’ evolving needs while further simplifying desktop management, enabling collaboration, reducing operating costs, and increasing overall desktop security.


Rich Desktop Experience Regardless of Task or Location

PCoIP, also known as “PC over IP”, is a high-performance display protocol purpose-built to deliver virtual desktops and to provide end users with the best, total rich desktop experience regardless of task or location. With PCoIP, the entire computing experience is compressed, encrypted and encoded in the data center before being transmitted across a standard IP network to PCoIP-enabled endpoint devices.


Unlike legacy display protocols, which were built to deliver applications, PC over IP was built from the ground up with desktop delivery in mind. Highly tuned with adaptive technologies, it ensures the best user experience regardless of end-user location on the LAN or across the WAN.


VMware View with PCoIP, a delivery platform for digital workspaces, enables a provider to deliver virtual desktops between software end-points. The VMware View Manager uses the PCoIP protocol to connect from PCs, laptops or thin clients running the VMware View Client to virtual desktops running centrally in the data center to provide a software PC over IP solution.


Combined with the option to support PCoIP hardware-enabled end points, VMware View is the only solution capable of addressing the full range of end-users from the task worker to the power user including high-end users with demanding 3D requirements.
