L-300 Ethernet Virtual Desktop Computer

L-series: L300

Ethernet virtual desktop

Enterprise IT departments are actively searching for less expensive ways to purchase, deploy, and manage employee desktops. Desktop virtualization has been considered the cure-all for this headache, but users are still concerned about virtual desktop performance and multimedia support. NComputing shatters this perception by delivering rich multimedia playback, powerful yet simple deployment and management tools, and an industry-leading price point via its next-generation access device—the L300 virtual desktop with vSpace® Server desktop virtualization software.


NComputing, the market leader in deployed virtual desktops, has delivered more than 2.5 million low-cost access devices worldwide. The newest access device, the L300 virtual desktop, delivers rich fullscreen, full-motion multimedia playback; transparent USB redirection; and unparalleled peripheral support. Combined with the NComputing vSpace Server, the L300 now provides enterprises with a simple-to-deploy, low-cost means to implement a complete virtual desktop infrastructure in hours.


vSpace virtualization software—get more from your VDI investment
NComputing vSpace Server enables enterprises to optimize virtual desktop deployments by providing multiple end users with simultaneous access to a single operating system instance of Windows. vSpace not only integrates into virtualization server deployments based on VMware, Citrix and Microsoft offerings, but can also extend their value by changing the typical virtual desktop structure from one user per virtual machine to 100 users per virtual machine. This has a direct, positive impact on operational expenses and immediately lowers overall desktop PC costs such as support, maintenance, and desktop replacement.


The L300 access device—next-generation media acceleration
With the L300, watching DVD-quality video on up to a 1920x1080 display comes standard for most common media formats. The game-changing access device comes packaged in a sleek lowpower package that can be easily mounted on a monitor or secured to a desk. Powered by a new NComputing Numo System-on-Chip (SoC), the L300 uses patent-pending hardware technology to decode and scale multimedia locally, eliminating network strain. The L300 access device costs less than any other thin- or zero-client options and a quarter of the cost of desktop PCs. In combination with the NComputing vSpace Server, it enables VDI solutions at one-third the price of traditional offerings.


L300 Key Features

  • Performs in your environment :  Whether playing DVD-quality full-screen video or connecting specialized USB 2.0 devices, the L300 has the power and flexibility to work in the environment you choose.
  • Fits your budget, today & tomorrow : The L300 redefines performance and value for thin-client or zeroclient devices. A complete virtual desktop solution can be deployed for less than half the cost of PCs, with ongoing management savings of 75% and power savings of over 90%.
  • Easy to deploy : Whether you need four workstations in a remote branch office or fourthousand in a corporate office, the L300 can be deployed easily using vSpace management tools.
  • Easy to manage : The L300 is a zero management client. Once deployed, there are no applications, software, or drivers to manage on the device. vSpace software centrally handles firmware changes without requiring user intervention.

L300: Ethernet virtual desktop

Feature Function Benefit
Host-optimized Video Acceleration Video content played through standalone media players or
embedded into web pages may be transcoded, streamed,
locally decoded, and scaled up to 1920x1080 resolution at full
frame rates.
Users will experience PC-quality video without excessive hostside
processing or requiring a local PC or thin client with media
player and codec support
High-availability Login Administrator may define a failover group list of hosts to which
devices may automatically connect
Each user can be assured a login within seconds, even in the
event of a host failure, without complex central management
servers and agents
Express Deployment Tools Administrators may define a device template with all settings
and configurations so that it may be cloned and pushed to
new devices
Thousands of devices may be easily deployed without manual
configuration—and without requiring the installation of
complex centralized management infrastructure
Vmware And Citrix Support Leverage VMware to deploy multiple instances of vSpace,
multiplying the number of users per server, or integrate the
Citrix Receiver to deploy XenApp-based applications
Extend the benefits of vSpace and the L300 for large
deployments by leveraging server and application
virtualization technologies
Zero Management The L300 is easy to configure and automatically receives
updates from deployed vSpace servers
The L300 is easy to configure and is automatically managed
by the vSpace server, unlike thin clients that require complex
management tools to deal with locally installed applications or
so-called “zero clients” that require complex networking and
management server setup
Transparent USB Redirection The L300 includes 2 USB 2.0 ports that transparently redirect
bulk, HID, mass-storage class, and printer devices back to the
server where the native driver is installed
No local management of drivers is required to support
USB devices
Zero-Footprint Installation The L300 includes a convenient VESA mounting option for
LCD displays
Keep the desktop clutter-free by mounting the L300 device to
the back of an LCD monitor
