Teradici is the creator of the PCoIP remoting protocol technology and Cloud Access Software, the leading solution for a cloud-ready future. The company, founded in 2004, is focused on its core mission of seamless delivery of workstations and applications for end-users.

Our most advanced protocol enhancements yet

Visitors to this blog are probably quite familiar with our PCoIP® technology.

This remote display protocol already encrypts and delivers virtual workspaces and applications to over 13 million endpoints around the world. Whether originating from private data centers, public clouds or multicloud environments, our users depend on PCoIP to deliver secure, lossless visualization.

This week, we announce the future of PCoIP with a set of enhancements dubbed PCoIP Ultra.

Introducing PCoIP Ultra

“PCoIP Ultra represents our most advanced protocol enhancements yet, designed to meet the needs of the most demanding graphics-intensive applications while delivering the same lossless image quality and security our customers expect.”
David Smith, CEO, Teradici 

Available in May to Cloud Access Software users, these enhancements use an expanded array of encoders, enabling the choice of the most efficient hardware or software codecs according to content characteristics. This flexibility results in a faster, more interactive experience for users of remote workstations working with high-resolution content, including creative design applications, dynamic wireframes, video editorial suites, and animation tools. The first release supports:

  • 4K/UHD high frame rate content

  • Efficient scaling across multicore CPUs leveraging AVX2 instruction sets

  • Expanded multi-codec architecture for third party codecs, including H.264/HEVC

“PCoIP Ultra™ represents our most advanced protocol enhancements yet, designed to meet the needs of the most demanding graphics-intensive applications while delivering the same lossless image quality and security our customers expect,” said David Smith, CEO of Teradici. “Even for the most challenging use cases as content shifts to larger and more immersive formats, PCoIP Ultra delivers uncompromising quality, security, and efficiency.”

What does this mean? 

For users – typically working with high-demand applications such as those used for visual effects, broadcast video, animation, computer-aided design (CAD), financial trading, or medical imaging – the dramatic improvements in responsiveness provided by the PCoIP Ultra enhancements will enable them to work remotely with these emerging content formats as seamlessly as if they were using a high-powered, expensive workstation at their desks. Their IT teams will find that this enables a cohesive solution across their organizations regardless of location or requirements, and the highest level of security for all users, reducing risk and support time.

 "We're excited about the potential of the protocol enhancements to further improve the software's performance, helping us to deliver a leading edge experience to our artists." 
Graham Jack, CTO, DNEG

For customers like, DNEG, a leading global visual effects studio, the support for high frame rate content and GPU acceleration in PCoIP Ultra offers a potential benefit to both user experience and productivity.

"Virtual workstations enable DNEG to be more nimble, efficient and competitive, but only if our artists’ experience is consistent in quality and speed," said Graham Jack, CTO for DNEG. "Teradici understands that and has worked with us continually to ensure that the performance of the virtual workstation solution delivers what we need. We're excited about the potential of the protocol enhancements to further improve the software's performance, helping us to deliver a leading edge experience to our artists."

“The Teradici PCoIP Ultra protocol enhancements promise significant performance advantages for customers by sharing resources across CPUs and GPUs to maximize efficiency.”
John Fanelli, Vice President, virtual GPU, NVIDIA

Teradici’s recent collaboration with NVIDIA to enhance the PCoIP protocol to support GPU acceleration with Quadro Virtual Data Center Workstation software and the NVIDIA RTX Server is the first example of the expanded multi-codec support in PCoIP Ultra.

“The Teradici PCoIP Ultra protocol enhancements promise significant performance advantages for customers by sharing resources across CPUs and GPUs to maximize efficiency,” said John Fanelli, Vice President, virtual GPU, for NVIDIA. “This enhances the usability and practicality of virtual workstations for graphics-intensive workloads, especially as frame rates and higher resolutions push performance expectations ever higher.”
