The VMware/Teradici remote protocol PC-over-IP (PCoIP) is rapidly being adopted by thin clients OEMs and that is not terribly surprising.
What’s more interesting is that PCoIP support may start to appear also among PC monitor OEMs.
Samsung seems to have been the first to embrace the idea at the end of last year: between December 2009 and January 2010 in fact, the company launched a couple of new displays (19” and 23.6") that feature support for any PCoIP remote host.
Both monitors include a Tera1100 processor and 64MB (19”) or 128 (23.6”) XDR memory to manage the PCoIP load, plus of course a 1GbE port.
Update: VMware published a nice demonstration of the 23.6” monitor capabilities in a PCoIP-powered VDI environment:
