Wyse Xenith 1.5 supports HDX Realtime Webcam


Wyse is going  to release soon a Maintenance Release 1 for Wyse ThinOS 7 and Xenith 1.5.

ThinOS 7 MR1 & Xenith firmware 1.5 supports HDX Realtime Webcam which leverages the Universal Video Driver (most Logitec and Microsoft webcams support this) and overcomes the need to install a local driver which. With ThinOS 7 MR1 & Xenith 1.5 you can use both HDX Realtime Webcam as well as HDX Realtime with the builtin Voice Codec with Microsoft Lync 2010.

Major enhancements are:
– Account Self Service feature where users can reset their own password and unlock their account
– HDX Realtime Webcam support in combination with XA6 and XD5
– RDP 7 Bitmap Compression
– RDP NLA Kerberos
– Localization of the GUI (at the moment loginscreen and boot messages only)
– Autologon (for instance for kiosks)
– Network capture to USB (create pcap files for troubleshooting connectivity issues)
– Much much more 🙂

So if you are looking for delivering a HDX Realtime Webcam support  in combination with XenDesktop 5 or XenApp6 with Microsoft Lync (former known as Microsoft Office Communication Server), Wyse ThinOS 7 MR1 / Xenith 1.5 is the perfect match for delivering a great user experience.

When you have a valid maintenance agreement the binaries can be downloaded from the Wyse Self Service portal in the coming weeks.


  • I realise this is an old post, however I’d be interested to know whether you ever actually tested the claims above.

    In our testing, Lync in XenApp 6.5 with any client (windows receiver up to version 3.2, xenith with various firmware up to 2.0) is terrible. The awful audio quality makes calls unusable even over a gigabit LAN.

    If you were able to get lync calls working in xenapp I’d love to know how.
