Dual monitor capability

Simple, Powerful, Affordable

NComputing has 20 years of expertise in desktop virtualization and we are the worldwide leading provider of Linux thin client solutions. We've been using ARM-based devices as the basis for our most recent thin clients. The Raspberry Pi 4 brings premium performance characteristics and native dual display support to remote computing. Optimized for Windows WVD and Microsoft RDS, the RX420(RDP) thin client in particular offers a rich PC-like experience in an affordable, energy-saving device that literally fits in the palm of your hand.


Securely built on Linux

More Secure

The RX-series thin clients are built based on a read-only, minimally sized Linux platform. Only the required thin client functionality is locally loaded. The fully locked-down Linux platform is secure, protecting users against 3rd party applications and common threats.



Lower total cost of ownership

The RX-series thin clients lower the overall cost of ownership needed to adopt WVD. For organizations looking to refresh or acquire new endpoint devices, RX-series thin clients are a fraction of the cost compared to traditional PCs and laptops and deliver a PC-like performance. Centralized device management, minimal moving parts, and no local data concerns help slash ongoing device maintenance and security expenses.


Transparent USB Redirection

Broad USB peripheral compactibility

With integrated transparent USB redirection, RX420(RDP) and RX-RDP+ utilize device drivers from the server side to provide extensive peripheral support including webcams (video conferencing), printers, mass storage, smart card readers & security keys, and audio devices.
