Cortado Presents the Next Generation of VDI and Remote Desktop Printing
At the VMworld conference in Barcelona, Cortado AG introduces the next generation of its worldwide leading print solution, ThinPrint. The ThinPrint Engine 9.0, available at the end of the year, will support Windows Server 2012. It also delivers features, including bandwidth control, compression, and its virtual driver, which are necessary for efficient printing results in the growing number of virtual desktop integration (VDI) projects and with Microsoft Remote Desktop printing.

According to the results of a Cortado survey of 350 visitors to this year's VMworld in San Francisco in August, almost 31 percent of companies anticipate printing problems when using VDI. Approximately 11 percent of those are already looking for a suitable solution to the printing problems. With this new version of ThinPrint Engine, Cortado AG provides all functions needed for printing.

The ThinPrint Server Engine is installed on central print servers and, with its V-Layer™ technology, minimizes the effort of administrating printer drivers, while fully supporting all print options. In addition to now supporting Windows Server 2012, it also includes connection-oriented bandwidth control and adaptive compression. This eliminates network overload and ensures fast printing.

The ThinPrint Engine works with virtual or actual desktops as well as mobile devices, such as the iPad, and can also be used in BYOD projects. In addition, it supports all current protocols and operating systems as well as any printer and can be used anywhere on any device. It also enables cloud printing and Cortado's pull printing solution "Personal Printing" for secure, user-authenticated printing.

The core technology of the solution has already been integrated as standard in VMware View, Fusion, Player and Workstation. A free trial of the advanced solution that enables the use of central print servers can be downloaded at

"More than 3.5 million users in over 15,000 companies use our solutions to print efficiently and cost-effectively," said Carsten Mickeleit, CEO of Cortado AG. "Especially in virtualized environments, the centralization of the printing processes and the minimization of administrative effort will be significant factors for the success of VDI projects."
