MUNICH, Germany, July 1 /PRNewswire/ -- Chip PC Technologies today announced it will be shipping the high-end range of its innovative Jack PC and Xtreme PC thin clients with the latest Windows Embedded CE 6.0 R2 including RDP 6.0.

Windows Embedded CE 6.0 R2 new operating system components enable devices to connect to Windows Vista and Windows Server 2008 more easily.

In addition, the new OS delivers the most updated Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP) 6.0, which unfolds important advantages to users, such as support for Secure Sockets Layer/Transport Layer Security (SSL/TLS), Network Level Authentication, Server Authentication, and 32-bit color graphics.

Chip PC devices with Windows Embedded CE 6.0 R2 are optimized for manageability, security and straightforward deployment, together with proposing extensive USB peripherals support and RDP 6.0 value-ad of advanced display options (Wide Screen and high resolutions), Pass-through-authentication mechanism and Server Authentication Support.

The high-end range of Chip PC thin client devices with the new OS will offer the following:

- Enhanced USB Peripherals Support - Enhanced Security: - SSL/TLS Protocol Support: support for using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) and Transport Layer Security (TLS) protocols to encrypt data sent through an RDP channel. SSL and TLS are protocols that enable client/server applications to communicate in a way that reduces the risk of eavesdropping, data tampering, and message forgery. SSL/TSL protocols provide endpoint authentication communications privacy over the Internet by using cryptography. - Network Level Authentication: an authentication method that finishes the user authentication process before a full Remote Desktop Connection is established and the logon screen appears, such that a client can only connect to a server if that server first authenticates it. Network Level Authentication requires fewer remote server resources, improves security and protects users from connecting to remote computers that are set up for malicious purposes. - Server Authentication: verifies that the client is connecting to the correct remote server and helps prevent the client from connecting to a server that it was not intended to connect to. In addition, it helps to prevent unintentionally exposing confidential information on a server in the enterprise network. - Enhanced Display Support: - Custom Display Resolutions (Wide-Screens): RDP 6.0 enables support for custom display resolution ratios, such as 16:9 or 16:10. The maximum resolution supported is 4096 x 2048. - Multi-Display Support - Monitor spanning: supports desktop display across multiple monitors (monitor spanning). - Color Depth supported up to 32 bits per pixel (True Color).

Chip PC will continue shipping devices with the previous version CE 4.2 OS and will be providing CE 6.0 R2 per customer request. The new OS version is available as of today.
