additional licenses and are now part of the standard vSpace feature.
Smart Card Reader Support
Note: vSpace Health Monitoring still
requires a valid license in vSpace Pro 11.2.0.
vSpace Pro versions prior to
11.2.0 release, all premium features described below still require valid
licenses. Hence, we recommend our customers to migrate their vSpace to 11.2.0
version to receive the most benefit
the overall server-side CPU usage when users watch web videos like YouTube or
local media content without the need for expensive GPUs. This results in higher
quality media streaming using the network bandwidth without CPU bottlenecks and
allows increased number of concurrent users.

available on Chrome browser. Support YouTube web videos and embedded YouTube
vCAST Media Streaming: supported on RX300 and vSpace Pro
Client for Windows. Support client-side rendering of VLC player (up to version

vSpace Health Monitoring:
Allows administrators to
monitor server health, CPU usage, memory usage, disk usage, Network IO
usage, and number of connected session usage. When the CPU usage exceeds a

vSpace Health Monitoring is
available with an active AMP subscription for vSpace Pro 11
Broadcasting provides screen
sharing functionality, allowing one screen to be broadcast to others. This
allows an instructor to broadcast their screen, or a students screen, to
everyone else. Great for presentations, sharing local or web videos, or
highlighting other content within a group.
Currently broadcasting is
supported among the same device types (e.g. A L-series thin client can
broadcast to any L-series thin client, M300 can broadcast only to M300
thin clients, MX100 can broadcast only to MX100 thin clients). We will
soon add RX300 and vSpace Pro client for Windows broadcast support.
We recommend all access point
devices to have the same display resolution if broadcasting is to be used
for best compatibility.
Broadcasting feature can be accessed from vSpace Console. Click on Manage
Servers icon -> select your vSpace Pro 11 server -> click on
'sessions' -> click on 'multiview' at the top menu. Then select the
user session you would like to broadcast from (sender), and click on
'broadcast' icon at the top menu to broadcast to the rest of the connected
access devices (recipients).
Broadcasting is available
with an active AMP subscription for vSpace Pro 11
Enhanced Smart Card Reader Support:
If your organization requires
smart cards for single sign-on, access control or other security-related
measures, vSpace Pro 11 supports up to 10 connected CCID-compliant smart
card readers per vSpace Server. AMP for vSpace Pro unlocks extended smart
card support, removing the 10 reader limit.
The enhanced smart card
reader support is available on RX300 thin client and vSpace Pro client for
Windows, with an active AMP subscription for vSpace Pro 11.
please find the instruction for vSpace Pro Client instructions (on vSpace
Console side) to setup enhanced smart card reader configuration. We can
also include RX300 configuration as well (need to modify step 5 to create
a custom RX300 performance profile). Also unlike vSpace Pro Client, RX300
only support CCID compliant USB smart card readers as we have embedded
CCID driver in the RX300 firmware.
