Automation Control Products Releases ThinManager® 9.0—Includes Virtual Screens with Session Scaling Allowing Customized Visualization Management
For release April 25, 2016
Alpharetta, GA — ACP releases ThinManager 9.0 as a major release of the ThinManager platform. Version 9.0 contains many new features including Virtual Screens as one of the most powerful tools for providing custom visualization. Virtual Screens allows administrators to lay out work screens in custom-sized regions on a single monitor. Add in automatic session scaling and you don’t even have to recode an application to get it to fit the area of the screen you assign it to. ThinManager also supports 4K resolution so a single monitor can now be used in place of multiple monitors—saving on hardware costs and reducing the effort of wiring and mounting.
Today, October 2nd, 2015, is Manufacturing Day. Manufacturing Day℠ is a celebration of modern manufacturing meant to inspire the next generation of manufacturers. This is an exciting opportunity as many manufacturers are opening their doors to the public today to offer tours and to show just how the manufacturing process works for them.
As a “tip of the cap” to all those in this great industry, we have put together a video about ThinManager in a sit down interview with ACP’s CEO, Matt Crandell, asking where it all started, and where it is going. ThinManager is the global leader in thin client management and industrial mobility. Without our partners and customers in the manufacturing industry, we simply would not be where we are today.
When you think about IP Cameras in your work environment, what comes to mind? You might think of monitoring safety and security of the facility. That is a completely valid thought. For many facilities that is likely the main reason that cameras were put in to place.
IP Camera use, especially in the last 5 years, has given way to much more. A new focus in a modern production environment is “increased visualization”. Increasing visualization can spawn from anything that makes you more productive by way of seeing more information. The use of cameras allows you to have an in-depth feel for an environment, not just a view of the screen at the terminal.
I am sure many professionals in numerous industries can relate with the resulting hardship from this seemingly simple question.
As with most high tech companies, the answer is not always so easily explained without creating even more questions. “We are the global leader in thin client management and industrial mobility solutions”. Sure, it rolls off the tongue, but does that explain ThinManager to someone that does not know about factory automation, thin clients or industrial solutions?
We have developed a new video to quickly and concisely illustrate an overview of what ThinManager is and does. This is the first in a new series of videos offering a more “in-depth” look in to the core functionality of ThinManager.
Network Level Authentication (NLA) completes user authentication before establishing a remote desktop connection.
Without NLA a user connects to the Terminal Server/Remote Desktop Server and the Terminal Server / Remote Desktop Server launches the Windows Login screen. This uses some resources and has the potential of DOS attacks.
The NLA uses credentials on the client to authenticate before starting the session, saving resources.
ThinManager supports NLA starting with Firmware 7.1.113 inside of the TermPack 7.1.3 package released on 6/26/2015.
Previous versions of firmware did not support NLA and required that the Allow connections only from computers running Remote Desktop with Network Level Authentication setting to be turned off.
Available June 1, 2015, ThinManager 8 comes packed with brand new features that will boost your facility’s productivity.
1. Better Security
2. HD IP Camera Feeds
3. Active Directory Support
4. Biometric Security Support
5. Android TMC
