- Grid GPU support for nVIDIA Grid K1, K2, M6, M10 and M60 cards including H.264 encoder option for lower CPU consumption and increased scalability (less latency, 4K support and 6-13% better FPS).
- Bandwidth Optimization and controls (for stuff as bandwidth cap per user, H.264 encoder quality levels and audio level).
- SteelHead support for application and networking optimization.
- vRealize Operations support with session statistics (Round Trip Latency, encode frame rate, throughput and estimated bandwidth)
- UEM SmartPolicies
- Intel vDGA Graphics support with Intel Skylake GPU
RDSH Hosted Apps
- Realtime Audio/Video support for applications (webcam and audio support on HTML Access, Windows, Linux and MacOS).
