ACP Releases ThinManager 4.1

ACP releases version 4.1 of their award-winning thin client and terminal services management software

New version includes support for managing virtual machine environments and extended IP Camera funtionality.


Alpharetta, Georgia, April 2011

ACP releases version 4.1 of their award-winning thin client and terminal services management software.

ThinManager Platform 4 expanded ThinManager’s functionality with features like MultiSession, AppLink, SmartSession, IP Cameras and Shadowing. Now ThinManager 4.1 brings support for virtual environments as well by adding virtual machines and virtual servers to the ThinManager source tree.

  • Virtualization
    Manage virtual terminal servers and virtual desktops.
  • 64-Bit Processing
  • Use any IP camera that supports MPEG.
    If your thin client is equipped with dual Ethernet ports, it is now possible to directly connect an IP Camera into the 2nd Ethernet port on the thin client. This greatly decreases network activity, instantly freeing up more bandwidth.

The at-a-glance management that has made ThinManager so popular has been extended to support virtual machines along side of other plant floor sources such as HMIs and IP camera feeds. By using one simple tool, modern plant floor managers can realize a tremendous time-savings when configuring, maintaining and deploying the sources that are used across their factories. Virtual machine support with iOS applications extends these time-savings by offering a more complete and portable management solution.

  • New Tree view of Terminal Servers and connected clients – See exactly which Windows Terminal Server is hosting each Thin Client. As clients log off one server and on to another, or in the event of a primary server failure and the automatic switching of all its connected clients to a backup server, the new tree will enable identification of all the server to client relationships.
  • Multiple monitoring connections to redundant ThinManager Servers – Provided the ability to run the ThinManager software on multiple machines. Load and start ThinManager wherever you need to be able to keep up with the system status.
  • Support for new Hardware – Added a number of new industrial ThinManager Ready Thin Clients.

  • Assign names to Servers – Even users who are not using a network with DNS can assign names to the ThinManager Servers and Terminal Servers on the network.
  • Create lists of available ThinManager Servers and Terminal Servers – Easy and automatic creation of server lists to cut down on confusion during initial system configuration and updates.
