Teradici, creator of PCoIP technology and Cloud Access Software, is adding support for the Mac. With Teradici’s Cloud Access Software leveraging the PCoIP remote display protocol, users can remotely access their Mac as if they were on a local machine, with the resolution and color fidelity they need to maintain quality standards, the company reports.
“We’re excited to bring high performance remote access technology to everyday workflows for our Mac users, and we want to make it as straightforward as possible for enterprises to deploy our solution within their existing IT infrastructure, ” says David Smith, CEO at Teradici. “By extending Teradici Cloud Access Software support to macOS, our customers can now securely access their high-powered Mac wherever they may be, including from their home office.”
Cloud Access Software is designed to support on-premises data center and public cloud environments and will support macOS in deployment scenarios. Support for the Mac will be available in mid-2021 and will extend to knowledge worker and power user use cases.
Teradici Cloud Access Software will support Macs running either macOS Catalina or macOS Big Sur. Additionally, all existing PCoIP endpoints including macOS clients, Windows clients, Linux clients, PCoIP Zero Clients and PCoIP thin clients will be able to connect to a macOS host.
Additionally content creator workflows including VFX, animation, video editing and other high-performance design workflows will be supported for Mac users with Cloud Access Software.
Support for the Mac follows the company’s latest Cloud Access Software release, which includes PCoIP Ultra protocol enhancements, such as the launch of its Auto-Offload feature. This capability dynamically switches between CPU and GPU resources to deliver whatever content is on screen in a given moment—whether video, static images or text—to make more efficient use of network bandwidth. This means motion is smooth during video playback, and that colors, lines and texture details are accurate when performing tasks such as editing, compositing, texturing, or color correction.
