I’m currently using a thin client with the following specification:
I am searching for Remote Desktop software that will allow me to have a very low latency for audio quality on my thin clients. Currently, audio quality is poor. The desktop interface is good enough, but could be improved. My main concern is the audio quality from the Remote Desktop. I am running 5-10 thin clients on a server with:
- Core 2 Quad 2.4 GHz
- 4 GB RAM
- Over a 100 Mbit/s LAN
Are there any good recommendations out there for Remote Desktop Software for either Windows 7 or XP?
Currently my server is running Windows 7, but if you recommend a better solution that will require me to switch to XP that is also fine.
I use Ericom Blaze as a low-latency RDP accelerator solution for my personal systems. I’ve also deployed it in situations where I needed full-screen or multiple-monitor RDP to a remote site. One clear example was having financial traders in Chicago who needed to run a GUI app in a co-located system in Toronto. Ericom’s protocol was very efficient for this task.
They have a larger suite built around the protocol to serve as a lower-cost Citrix alternative .
