Mighty Thin Client

Dell announces its light, small and power-efficient Wyse 3040 thin client. Compatible with Citrix, Microsoft and VMware virtual workspace environments, the 3040 provides a cost-effective thin client that is highly secure, yet easy to deploy and manage. The entry-level unit features an Intel Atom x5 1.44GHz quad-core processor that supports up to 2 GB DDR3 RAM and 8 GB flash. It contains the following ports: three USB 2.0; one USB 3.0; one audio-mic combo jack; two DisplayPorts; and one RJ45.

Power Tablet

The Apple 12.9-inch iPad Pro tablet is available in 64 GB, 256 GB or 512 GB capacity. The LED-backlit multitouch display offers 2732 x 2048 resolution at 264 pixels per inch. The tablet contains a 12-megapixel camera with optical image stabilization; Wi-Fi (802.11 a/b/g/n/ac); dual band (2.4 GHz and 5 GHz); HT80 with MIMO; and Bluetooth 4.2 technology. Users have up to 10 hours of surfing the Web on Wi-Fi, watching video or listening to music, or up to nine hours of surfing the Web using a cellular data network. The iPad Pro also comes in a 10.5-inch version.

Video Conference Sharing

The Polycom Pano connects to any display to enable wireless content sharing from PCs, Macs, tablets and smartphones — even live video. Anyone in a meeting can share up to four streams of simultaneous content side by side, from any device, without the hassle of juggling cables, pucks or dongles. Pano’s built-in security safeguards limit sharing to the target monitor and protect content once a meeting is concluded. Add a Pano to a touch monitor and an expanded set of capabilities are available, with annotation and interactive whiteboarding features. Pano works with existing video equipment, making it easy to add on to current conference room technology.
