Partnership to produce system-on-chip (SoC) solutions that will expand Teradici PCoIP technology into new devices, markets, and use cases
SUNNYVALE, Calif. November 15, 2016 – Socionext Inc., an emerging leader in advanced system-on-chip (SoC) technology for video and imaging systems, and Teradici, creator of industry-leading PCoIP® technology for secure virtual workspaces, today announced a strategic partnership to provide silicon to power a new family of PCoIP endpoints for the cloud.
“When it came time to move our industry-leading PCoIP technology forward, partnering with Socionext was a natural fit,” said Dan Cordingley, CEO of Teradici. “Socionext’s expertise in delivering specialized, highly integrated SoC solutions has opened doors that will enable us to bring the power and benefits of PCoIP technology to entirely new markets and use cases.”
“Teradici with its PCoIP technology is the recognized leader in the market for delivering secure virtual desktops, workstations, workspaces, and applications,” said Koichi Yamashita, Senior Vice President, IoT and Graphics Solution Business Unit at Socionext. “We’re excited to be able to provide our powerful capabilities for the cloud by introducing Teradici PCoIP technology into our SoC solutions.”
The first goal of the partnership will be an expansion of Teradici’s PCoIP Zero Client family of ultra-secure hardware endpoints for virtual and cloud environments. The new Socionext SC1110 SoC, also known as “PXiV”, will be used in the new Alta PCoIP Zero Client alongside the well-established Tera2 PCoIP Zero Client line, of which more than 3 million units have shipped.
PCoIP Zero Clients are hardware-based endpoints that use a highly integrated, purpose-built processor to perform image decompression and decoding, so pixels are transmitted instead of data. By integrating the PCoIP hardware decoder with modern SoC technology, Teradici and Socionext aim to empower OEMs to embed PCoIP technology in a range of devices beyond the traditional desktop form factors.
As more workloads and applications move to the cloud, PCoIP embedded endpoint solutions will also grow significantly. The partnership with Socionext, which has developed industry-leading expertise in a broad range of digital consumer products, will create new potential for reaching an untapped opportunity across a broad range of industries, from digital signage to automotive, to television and interactive media streaming, to ruggedized devices for vertical industries and for mobile users in every industry, and more.
“Socionext has developed industry-leading expertise in a broad range of digital consumer products and this new partnership with Teradici will expand PCoIP embedded endpoint solutions to broader use cases, such as digital signage, automotive, interactive media streaming and more," said Anthony Wong, Director of Marketing at Socionext.
Teradici will showcase the new Alta PCoIP Zero Clients based on Socionext PXiV at AWS re:Invent conference in Booth #1342, taking place in Las Vegas from November 28 through December 2, 2016.
