HP Anyware Demonstrates Hybrid Work Possibilities at Autodesk University

December 8, 2022
HP Teradici

HP Teradici is the inventor of the PCoIP remote display protocol and develops the Engineering Emmy-Award-winning HP Anyware (formerly Teradici CAS) to deliver the best virtual and remote desktop experience in the world.

The design and make conference, Autodesk University, was back in-person for 2022, featuring industry talks, panels, workshops, and demonstrations across several verticals, including architecture, engineering, and construction (AEC) and product design and manufacturing (PD&M). Z by HP were platinum sponsors of the event and at their booth, HP Anyware for digital workspaces, HP Teradici’s flagship product, proved hybrid work can thrive with the right remote access software. 

HP Anyware and 3D Visualization

At the Z by HP stand, Stephen Moore, HP Teradici Technical Alliance Architect, demonstrated the power of HP Anyware software in remote and hybrid environments. 

Moore used an HP Z2 Mini Workstation to log into a HP Z2 Tower Workstation that was across the booth, simulating a user in the office accessing a rack-mounted workstation located in an on-prem IT server room. To gain a more fluid user experience, Moore activated his 3DConnexion mouse which was connected via USB to his work computer. HP Anyware offers seamless connectivity with 4K monitors and other peripherals, including keyboards, precision mice, and Wacom tablets.  

Moore was able to work on design files easily, adding buildings utilizing an Autodesk Revit Generative Design study. For high-performance modelling, Moore powered up Enscape to demonstrate the high-fidelity of HP Anyware while showing different views of the model, effortlessly zooming in and out, changing the sky and adding natural features like mountains, all without any lag or security concerns. 

Moore emphasized one of the primary benefits of HP Anyware to a 3D designer, saying, “being able to generate and use all the CPU cores and the NVIDIA RTX GPU that is available on my desktop, while I'm on the road, is pretty powerful.” HP Anyware is based on PC-over-IP (PCoIP®) technology which only transmits encrypted pixels from host to client, so Moore's data remains secure in the office even if he is out in the field or at home. 

NVIDIA Omniverse 3D scene demo

At Autodesk University, Robert Cervellione, AECO Design Specialist at NVIDIA, connected data from different applications, such as McNeel Rhino, Autodesk Revit and 3ds Max, and Unreal Engine with NVIDIA Omniverse Enterprise. Based on Universal Scene Description (USD), Omniverse Enterprise enables teams to connect and customize 3D pipelines and simulate large-scale, physically accurate virtual worlds. With over 1.5 billion polygons and 2000 lights, the scene required a great deal of computing power, which HP Anyware gave Cervellione access to. Instead of bringing a heavy-duty machine to Autodesk University, Cervellione had brought his laptop, and he remotely accessed his NVIDIA RTX-powered workstation, which has a high-powered graphics card, via HP Anyware. Anyware offers low latency and GPU-accelerated connections so Cervellione can work on it, just like it was my native laptop.

Enscape collaboration announcement

Daniel Monaghan, Head of Sales & Channel, Americas at Enscape, spoke about Anyware at Autodesk University. Enscape is a real-time GPU-based rendering program for AECO visualization, and the company announced their collaboration with HP Anyware as well as Enscape’s merger with Chaos. Monaghan described HP Anyware as the keystone of their solution, as it will help Enscape “solve the largest problem of AECO visualization. As a GPU-based remote access software, Enscape clients can effectively run their software, as well as Revit, at 4K lossless resolution in a hybrid or remote environment. “The benefit that HP Anyware offers our customers is the ability to really run Enscape from anywhere,” said Monaghan. 

BAC product development with HP

Ian Briggs, Co-Founder and Design Director of Briggs Automotive Company (BAC), spoke about his collaboration with Z by HP and HP Anyware. BAC is the creator of the BAC Mono, the world’s first and only single-seater, road-legal sports car. At Autodesk University, Briggs shared 3D models of the supercar running on Autodesk Alias and explained the importance of having his design and engineering teams working on Z by HP laptop and desktop workstations because of the power and speed the devices offer. Since every car model they make is bespoke, BAC needs to show a photorealistic version of the car to the customer, which they do by using ray-tracing and VRED extensively on Z workstations. Briggs also spoke about cutting down rendering time from an overnight operation to less than 10 minutes on Z workstations with NVIDIA RTX GPUs.

Alongside using Z workstations, Briggs explained how HP Anyware had made it possible to adopt a hybrid working model. Instead of having to carry his machine with him wherever he went, Briggs can now use HP Anyware to log into his remote workstation from his laptop at home and still achieve the same capability as the high-powered workstation in his office. “I’m free to be wherever I need to be,” said Briggs.
