New Releases...Sun Ray 150
The Sun Ray 150 appliance integrates Sun Ray functionality with 24-bit graphics on a 15” flat panel display with a backlight system of 60 Hz. This compact design takes up little room on the desktop, but can also be mounted to the wall for greater space savings. The design has a bright and clear display, lower power consumption and simpler setup, when compared to the installation of a separate CPU and monitor. In addition, it is fully backward and forward compatible with the other members of the Sun Ray family.
The Sun Ray 150 has a 4 USB powered peripheral interface and the support of an RGB projector port (1024 x 768). Networking requires a dedicated connection between each Sun Ray appliance and the server running the Sun Ray server software. Input devices include a Type 6 USB keyboard, USB mouse and smart card reader. Available audio includes quality audio in/out, CD, microphone and headphone jacks. The unit comes equipped with an NTSC/PAL, RCA connector. The system power consumption is 60W AC maximum, 20W AC maximum in standby mode, with only keyboard and mouse USB peripherals attached.
