Power many low-cost displays from desktops to digital signs

           Streamline computer deployments and power many displays, from customer and employee desktops to digital signs, plus centrally manage them all with Userful Multiplatform desktop virtualization software. As the simplest, most flexible, and lowest cost virtual desktop solution for organizations without skilled IT teams and large budgets, Userful Multiplatform is half the cost of other VDI solutions and a fraction the cost of one computer per person.

Centralize all PCs, Operating Systems and Desktops

           Efficiently centralize all stand-alone computers, operating systems and desktops into a central, server appliance. With Userful Multiplatform, replace the physical computers that traditionally power each display with low-cost zero client devices to reduce hardware and energy costs. The simplified server appliance creates visibly better performance than complex virtualization product that encode and decode data from a data center. It offers the high performance of stand-alone PCs with even the most demanding applications like playing multiple full HD videos.

Deploy one or multiple operating systems to displays including Microsoft Windows desktops, Linux or the free, integrated cloud desktop that includes an office suite and thousands of apps. The cloud desktop is perfect for organizations that use cloud apps like Google Drive. Administrators can provide multiple operating systems at each display for users to switch between with a click. Only in-use Microsoft Windows desktops need a license, which saves on costly software licensing.

From One Server Appliance to Many Displays

           Reduce the cost of desktops, but also add more types of displays including touch screens, kiosks, digital signs and interactive displays that would have been previously unaffordable. Using the same software that powers desktops with one central computer, also turn low-cost touch monitors into self-serve kiosks or shared computers and single or multi-panel TVs into digital signs for advertising, wayfinders, menu boards and more. Add a SMART Board interactive whiteboard or SMART LightRaise interactive projector to a meeting space to increase collaboration and communication.

Manage the Solution from Any Device

           Seamlessly manage the entire solution from a desktop, tablet or smart phone using a browser-accessible control center with drag and drop simplicity. Managing just one image on the server, to add new applications or updates to all desktops, reduces IT management time and resources.

 

Features

Simplify PC Deployment - A simplified infrastructure replaces physical computers traditionally required at each display with a central browser-appliance and low-cost zero client devices to reduce hardware costs and management
Compatible with Many Types of Displays - Power multiple desktops and turn low-cost touch monitors or TVs into kiosks and TVs into single or multi-panel digital signs.
Touch Screen Support - Add a touch screen including Advantek, PHIStek and other monitors.
SMART Board interactive whiteboard integration - Enhance communication and collaboration by adding a SMART Board 600 or 800 interactive whiteboard or a SMART LightRaise 60wi interactive projector to the solution.
Basic Signage Player - A basic signage player, integrated into the Control Center, enables you to turn any digital display into a digital sign that plays multimedia files and weblinks.
Set Up and Scale Easily - Setup a network of virtual desktops in just hours with plug and play simplicity and easily maintain it with even limited IT skills. Scale deployments by adding another zero client for each new display.
Ensure High Availability - Provide high availability from another server in the unlikely event the original server is down.
Hybrid Docking - Empower collaboration in meeting rooms and increase productivity in hotdesking work spaces by sharing or extending content from a laptop to a second display. Plug the laptop into the zero client with a USB cable to mirror or extend the content. Unplug the cable to return to the the original desktop.
Broadcast Alert - Instantly broadcast a message to all connected displays. Messages are distinguished by color and alert level ranging from green announcements to red emergency notices.
Virtual Microsof Windows Machine - Create virtual Microsoft Windows XP, 7 or 8 machines once and map to any number of computers. Customers can use cost effective Diskless COA licenses instead of VDA licenses.
Shared File Storage - Store and share content between multiple desktops by saving files to a shared folder on the host PC. Saved files can be downloaded through a simplified list in a web browser and saved on the desktop to edit locally.
Reduce Ongoing Costs - Zero client devices have an extended lifespan with no moving parts to fail and no local processing power. They consume only 3 watts of power compared to 120 watts of power per PC.
