Provide a high-definition experience on any device

Keep apps and desktops performing fast

Today’s employees expect real-time responses from IT provided resources. Which is why many organizations are turning to desktop as a service (DaaS), or virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI), to deliver a secure, high-performance experience regardless of device, network quality or location. It’s not enough to simply offer remote access to applications or data. You need to provide the right solution—one that can adapt to a wide variety of variables and be deployed from any cloud or on-premises environment. With Citrix high-definition experience (HDX) technology, you can achieve all of these goals—and vastly improve user productivity and satisfaction.

Increase speed

For your users to get as much as possible out of their VDI and desktop as a service (DaaS) deployments, responsiveness is key. With the right technology, a complex graphic should run just as smoothly in a virtual desktop as it does on their native device. With HDX 3D Pro and other targeted optimizations, it will. Cutting-edge display techniques ensure crystal-clear 3D rendering, 2D imaging, and interactive video, enabling users to collaborate with pixel-perfect imagery even on unstable broadband and mobile networks. Leveraging Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops service allows users to access resources from their closest cloud location, ensuring the best experience from anywhere. And with Remote PC Access capabilities, users can leverage graphics or processing-intensive workloads from their physical PCs, too.

Reduce spending

With increased business pressure to support flexible work, it helps to have breakthrough technology that won’t require extra investments. Citrix HDX technology is baked into every edition of Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops, including DaaS and VDI options, giving you an instant advantage. Image quality is improved for highly animated workloads and server-rendered video without needing to invest in new infrastructure to support it. And when leveraging public cloud hosting, you only pay for the resources you use. Only Citrix provides an app experience that truly recreates the experience of traditional Linux and Windows 10 PCs, while allowing you to make the most of your existing resources and devices.

Improve communication and collaboration

More and more enterprises are leaning on unified communications (UC) tools such as Microsoft Teams and Zoom to foster collaboration. While these solutions offer tremendous benefits, they can be difficult to deploy. And it can be challenging to ensure the ideal user experience across a myriad of devices. Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops eliminates these issues. Thanks to Citrix HDX optimization, created in close collaboration with Microsoft engineers, users get a fully native experience when using Microsoft Teams or Skype for Business, on any device. Citrix HDX technology is one of the only Microsoft-endorsed solutions for delivering unified communications solutions in a virtual environment, making it the clear choice when looking to increase server scalability and improve audio-video traffic.
