    Another announcement at Intel Developer Forum 2010. This geek is not really into KVM but this looks interesting allowing you to watch a full PC boot sequence remotely.

    September 13th 2010: At Intel Developer Forum (IDF) in San Francisco, RealVNC will be demonstrating VNC Viewer Plus connecting directly to the KVM remote control functionality embedded in the 2010 Intel®Core™ vPro™ processor family. This unique solution enables IT teams to benefit from additional cost-saving manageability functions such as remote reboot, remote power on/off and IDE redirection.

    With VNC Viewer Plus connected to a VNC Server embedded in the hardware, IT departments can diagnose more complex issues remotely such as OS failures and boot problems. Users can watch a full PC boot sequence, manipulate BIOS settings and re-install an operating system, reducing the need for desk-side visits and any downtime.

    In addition with the ability to power machines on or off remotely, users can increase energy savings as the computer is not always needed to be switched on to gain access, such as when out-of-hours maintenance is required. PCs with the Intel Core vPro processor family also benefit from remote hardware reset and IDE redirection, providing the ability to boot from an image stored on a network share at a remote location.

    VNC Viewer Plus is available to trial and purchase at under end user and OEM licensing models. It is also available as an SDK, enabling ISVs/developers to integrate the viewer into their own applications for distribution to their end users. This option allows software vendors in spaces such as helpdesk to integrate with Intel KVM quickly. With VNC Viewer SDK for KVM the majority of the hard work is already done and vendors can save valuable development time and get to market sooner.

    “IDF is a great opportunity for RealVNC to demonstrate its support for vPro and developers within the Intel community,” said Adam Greenwood Byrne, VP OEM, RealVNC. “We have a presentation running in the vPro community theatre and are also available in the vPro Technology Community to discuss this exciting technology further. I’m delighted to be able to attend personally and look forward to meeting more of the community.”

    Now in its 13th year, the Intel Developer Forum in the Moscone Centre West, San Francisco from 13-15 September, provides a unique opportunity hear from more than 150 leading technology companies and learn more about Intel’s technology and platform roadmap in the areas of digital enterprise, mobility, embedded and communications, software, manufacturing and research.

    RealVNC will be exhibiting in the Intel® vPro™ Technology Community at Booth 678.
