Use Blaze Client?

Postby Paul.Adams » Fri Jan 27, 2017 11:09 pm

Hi,

We are multiple locations, with a central data centre.

We provide Internet / word processing resources for our clients at our locations.

We are investigating replacing client desktop PC's with Raspberry PI's connected to the data centre using RDP. We are using Windows Server 2016 MultiPoint services.

In testing, almost everything clients wish to do works smoothly. If we limit the Raspberry PI to 1920 x 1080 display, and 16 bit color depth, we find 1080P video, running full screen, from YouTube is approx 8.5 Mbps out from the server to the PI device. The playback is acceptable - the video plays and the sound is unbroken.

Anything we can do to reduce the 8.5Mbps per connected device, (when running full 1080P video), is appreciated.

Ericom produce software called Blaze to reduce the bandwidth required by an RDP session. It is claimed they can reduce it by as much as 10 times. They have a server product and a client. The client is available as a Linux client and is available for Linux thin clients.

Is it possible to get a version of WTWARE with the Blaze client software installed and working? I am open to paying for this work to be done.

WTWARE and Raspberry PI 3B meets our needs for almost everything we require. It will save us a considerable amount of money. If we could reduce the bandwidth requirement for video, it would be a bonus.

Thanks for your time,

Regards

Further reading shows the Blaze client is only for x86 processors...

Client Hardware

Any platform with x86 MMX instruction set support

I don't believe. I don't believe even in 2 times comparing to recent WTware and 2012R2 Server.

PS: did you try "rdpcompression=on" in WTware config file?

Thanks - yes tried the rdpcompression line. Seems to make no difference - still approx 8.5Mbps for the 1080P full screen feed.

YouTube suggest 8Mbps for 1080p, so the RemoteFX/H.264 stuff I guess is working OK.
