“Ceptor is the only ultra-small device shipping today and it is the only true ‘thin client HDMI stick’,” noted Joe Makoid, President, Devon IT. “We are seeing use cases across a variety of applications in enterprises and organizations around the world of all sizes. No other thin client can deliver this performance at this price and we cannot keep them in stock very long.”
Ceptor is one of the most unique and low cost thin client devices on the market. It is an ultra-compact multimedia-capable device enables users to convert any HDMI capable TV or monitor into an interactive enterprise thin client device. Its small form factor offers a full virtual desktop experience at a low price point.
Some examples of current uses of the Ceptor include:
A hospital is now using Ceptor as an integrated part of its medical carts. The low power consumption and small form factor make it ideal for clinical settings while the secure thin client OS helps compliance with HIPAA requirements.
A large school district is testing Ceptor for use in its classrooms integrated with the ceiling projectors. The Ceptor alleviates the need for an instructor desktop or laptop computer in the classroom and stays out of reach to prevent damage.
A manufacturing company is now using Ceptors to display videos related to its manufacturing process in their foyer, lobbies and hallways.
A restaurant chain has begun to utilize the Ceptor at a location to display its menus on televisions above the cash wrap. Using wireless keyboards the customers can browse the menu and place an order.
One services firm is buying Ceptors for its IT employees who need to be able to carry a small device from user station to station for testing, app or file installation, and other purposes.
A home-based call center customer is providing Ceptors to their agents to decrease costs of their computing setup while being able to effectively manage the devices remotely.
A university is using the Ceptor as part of its digital signage by displaying an informational presentation on kiosks across the campus.
A mobile training company brings Ceptors on site (instead of full computers) so the trainer/instructor can offer each person a computing environment.
