LG to Embed NComputing Technology Into New SmartVine N-series Monitors


LG and virtual desktop specialist NComputing, today announced a partnership to produce a new category of LCD monitors that can function as virtual computers and integrate NComputing's virtual desktop technology.

LG will bring its high-volume scale and global distribution network to the alliance, while NComputing will contribute its hardware and vSpace(TM) virtualization software. The sub-$200 computing solution will further drive the acceleration towards desktop virtualization and "cloud computing" in which computing is centralized and done over the Web.

Customers are increasingly turning to desktop virtualization, Software as a Service (SaaS), and Web-hosted applications to lower their IT costs. NComputing estimates that customers for LG SmartVine N-series monitors with embedded NComputing desktop virtualization technology can lower their computer hardware costs by 60 percent, maintenance costs by 70 percent, and electricity costs by 90 percent. The LG monitors work with both Windows and Linux computers.

In the United States, the LG SmartVine N-series line will include 17 and 19-inch class monitors (models N1742L-BF and N1941W-PF) covering both standard and widescreen resolutions. A 16-inch class model will also be available in other countries. All LG SmartVine N-series monitors can also be used as traditional monitors that connect through VGA. These monitors will be marketed worldwide by LG beginning this month.

NComputing technology enables a single PC or server to be virtualized so that many users can tap the unused capacity and share it as if each person had their own computer.

LG Electronics is embedding NComputing virtualization circuitry inside the new SmartVine N-series monitors. Users connect their keyboards and mice directly to the monitor, which then connects to the host PC via a standard cable. An NComputing X550 PCI Card Kit with vSpace software enables the host PC to connect to five additional monitors. With two kits, a total of 11 users can share one PC.



"Demand for low cost, high value computing is expanding quickly, especially in light of recessionary pressures on IT budgets. The LG-NComputing partnership will help accelerate virtual desktop computing as a low cost, high value offering because it dramatically improves the economics and simplicity of end-user computing," said leading computer technologist Rob Enderle, Principal, Enderle Group. "In the coming years, as cloud computing becomes more mainstream, workers may simply link network enabled devices like this into the cloud without the need, or desire, for any local computing resources."
