Samsung today announced its next-generation TC191W and TC241W
thin-client and NC191 and NC241 zero-client cloud displays.
The latest lines combine VDI and desktop virtualization for simple
and secure access to a business cloud.
Both the TC-and NC-Series cloud displays provide integrated
connectivity to business clouds via desktop virtualization
technology, therefore eliminating the need for a bulky PC with

Functionality is expanded by allowing administrators to add local
software requisites to drive peripherals like web cams or printers,
and to install local utilities needed for unified communications.
With all of this flexibility users can still retain the simplicity
of a traditional thin client. Since the primary purpose of
