User Experience

Seamless app mode Applications are dynamically integrated into the user's own local desktop launch menu, and behave as though they were installed locally. Available on Windows, macOS or Linux devices running the Inuvika EDC.
Windows or Linux desktop mode Users access applications on a familiar Windows or Linux desktop workspace.
Web portal mode Apps are delivered through an intuitive Web portal that includes a file manager for basic file system management and icon-based interface for launching applications in individual Web browser windows.
Kiosk mode A locked-down remote desktop that limits users to assigned functionality.
Video support The EDC supports the RemoteFX Adaptive Graphics, RemoteFX Progressive Codec and RemoteFX for WAN (TCP only) on Windows Application Servers. Video and audio synchronization is supported on Windows clients.
Audio support The EDC and EMC support audio recording using microphone redirection with Linux and Windows application servers. Microphone recording also supported on HTML5 browser-based sessions. Supports audio out with Linux and Windows Application servers.
"Follow Me" session roaming Users can transfer a session from one device to another. Logging into an active session from a different device will transfer the session to their new device with dynamic screen resizing.
Dynamic delivery fallback If a local application is not installed on a client, OVD automatically falls back to server hosted application delivery without any user interaction.
Session recovery Disconnected sessions maintain their state. Users can reconnect and continue where they left off.
In-Session Screen Resizing OVD adjusts the active session desktop to match the user's client or browser window setting.
Full Screen Mode Launch the Inuvika client or Web browser into full screen mode and experience the feeling of a local Windows or Linux desktop session.

Management

Centralized management Manage servers, users and applications from a single, Web-based Administration console.
Delegated administration The administration console supports delegation so that Sub Administrators can be assigned various levels of management rights.
User profile management Provides user profile management for both Windows and Linux users, or use MS Roaming Profiles for Windows-only environments.
