<p>New Wyse Thin Computers Combine Advanced Display Handling
With Small Size, Silent Operation</p>
<p>Sydney, Australia – 17 January 2007 - Wyse Technology, the global leader in thin computing, today released details of the new Wyse V-Class Dual-Video family of thin computers with advanced display capabilities. This new family of thin computers will be available in Australia and New Zealand in mid February.</p>
<p>Thin computing is being selected for more advanced applications, creating demand for a desktop with advanced display handling capabilities, yet retaining the small size, security and power consumption attributes of thin computers. Responding to this need, Wyse introduces the V-Class Dual-Video family, which supports high-resolution displays and the option to connect two displays simultaneously. This extends the work productivity, security, reliability, and affordability of thin computing to data-intensive environments such as document management, financial services, medical care, and research industries. Designed for use with Microsoft Terminal Services, Citrix Presentation Server, VMware, web-based, and full-function streaming environments, the V-Class Dual-Video includes dual-monitor window management allowing the user to take full advantage of two monitors in a remote-computing environment.</p>
<p>“The new V-Class Dual-Video family addresses the requirements of customers asking for higher display resolutions (up to WUXGA 1920 x 1080 pixels), superior image quality, and support for analogue and digital displays through the new DVI-I interface," said Bill Platt, Executive Vice President of Products, Wyse Technology. "This solution also rounds out our offering with our Wyse V-Class product family, now giving us options for dual-video. This further extends the security and reliability of Wyse thin computers to demanding, multi-display environments."</p>
<p>The new family is based on the VIA Eden C7 processor, and uses only 12 watts of power making it one of the most economical units available. The new products are four times faster than the models replaced*, at the same or lower prices.</p>
<p>"Dual-video support was once a nice-to-have but is becoming more of a need-to-have,” said Anna Soriano, Channel Director Asia Pacific, Wyse Technology. “The Wyse 3150 thin client was a great product, however the V30 Dual-Video gives you Microsoft Windows CE in a much faster box, with the ability to use two displays if you desire, all at the same price point as the 3150.”</p>
<p>The new product line includes models based on Windows CE 5.0, Linux, and Windows XP embedded. Models are available in Australia mid February 2007 starting at $671 including GST. Dual video capability requires optional DVI-I to dual display cable, available from Wyse.</p>
<p>* The V-Class Dual-Video family models replace the popular Winterm 3150, 5150 and 9150 models.</p>
