NICE DCV enables secure and optimized remote access to Windows and Linux desktops with a specific focus on graphic intensive workloads.

Designed to satisfy the requirements of the most demanding technical computing users, NICE DCV provides unprecedented performance with all major CAD, CAE, Petro-technical, medical and scientific visualization applications.

NICE DCV allows sharing of a single physical or virtual GPU among multiple Linux sessions, while maintaining full graphic acceleration and workstation-class performance: this makes NICE DCV the ideal choice for remote working and collaboration, allowing a better utilization of available hardware resources.

How NICE DCV works

In a typical 3D visualization scenario, a software application uses local resources (CPU, memory, etc.) and sends a stream of graphics commands to a graphics adapter (GPU) installed on the workstation. The GPU renders the data into pixels and outputs them to one or more local displays.

With NICE DCV, all applications run natively on remote hosts, which may also be consolidated and virtualized. The native GPU driver renders the scene geometry and graphics state on the remote physical or virtual GPU, and pixels are compressed and sent over the network to clients for local displaying.
