NICE DCV is a remote visualization protocol that enables users to securely access remote desktop or application sessions, including 3D graphics applications hosted on servers with high-performance GPUs. NICE DCV offers end users a wide range of client devices, including an HTML5 client for web browser access, a native Windows client, and now a native Linux client. Native clients now support USB redirection for 3D mice and USB storage devices, and they support up to 4 monitors at 4k resolution. In addition, NICE DCV helps customers with remote Linux desktops reduce session costs by supporting multiple Linux sessions from a single high performance server. NICE DCV is free to use on Amazon EC2 instances.
The DCV 2017.1 release introduces the following features:
- Native client for Linux so that Linux desktop customers can get the best performance and full feature support using DCV
- USB redirection so that remote servers can access 3D mice and USB storage devices connected to a user’s local desktop
- Automatically lock Windows sessions when the last client disconnects for enhanced security
