June 6, 2011 - PRLog -- Microsoft Technical Evangelist – Olivier Bloch – recently demonstrated the Windows Embedded Compact 7 based Remote FX capability in his online blog spot:

This latest technology is indicative of how ARM based products are now enabling very small footprint, low power products in the thin client computing space.

There are many documented benefits of thin and zero clients, but the inclusion of Remote FX by MPC Data into Windows Embedded Compact 7 (WEC7 – the new name for WinCE) allows the user to have the full desktop experience – without the need for a PC.

In Olivier’s blog you will see an embedded video, where Olivier talks about having a low cost – low power - fast booting client – running from Flash memory rather than disk.

Olivier moves on to talk about the streaming of high quality video and the USB re-direction – not previously seen on thin clients – and shows the Beagleboard-XM connecting to a VM server with and without Remote FX enabled.

As one of the earliest members of the Compact 7 beta program, MPC Data have been investing heavily in Compact 7 over the last year. This ensures that we are able to provide our customers with world-class support on this important new technology, as well as being able to offer low cost “off the shelf” board support packages (BSPs) mpc-products. MPC Data’s training portfolio has also been updated to include Compact 7 training at both platform and applications level

Alan Rowe, Windows Embedded Group Director at MPC Data states “Many of our customers are already planning to upgrade to Compact 7, and as a leading Windows Embedded systems integrator and Microsoft Gold Partner we have worked hard to ensure that we can hit the ground running with these new technologies. This year at Embedded World we demonstrated the very latest RemoteFX technology based on WEC7 – MPC Data has been working closely with Texas instruments and Microsoft to create production-ready RFX platforms on ARM-based devices.”

Remote FX technology is available today at MPC Data, to find out more and to discuss how we can can work with you  to bring your products to market faster, cost effectively and with less risk, give us a call or email us as below.
