PCoIP Virtual Channel SDK 1.1.0 Release Notes (15134-3158)

Release Overview

PCoIP Virtual Channel Software Development Kit (SDK) 1.1.0 enables customers to add custom capabilities to their PCoIP sessions, such as custom plug-ins that stream data securely between the remote desktop and clients.

Example solutions may include:

  • USB peripherals (like webcams) or custom USB devices
  • Enhanced local printing services

What’s New in This Release

Using CMake to Build Plug-in Samples

CMake is an open source, cross-platform family of tools designed to build, test, and package software. You can now use CMake as part of PCoIP Virtual Channel SDK 1.1.0 to configure and generate platform and compiler specific build files and build the target plug-ins for Windows, macOS, and Linux. 

Key Features of the PCoIP Virtual Channel SDK

Virtual channel traffic is encrypted between PCoIP clients and hosts

Virtual channel traffic travels over existing PCoIP sessions and is encrypted and authenticated like other PCoIP traffic.

Virtual channel traffic is compressed

If virtual channel traffic can be compressed, then the API automatically applies lossless compression. Plug-ins can explicitly disable compresssion.

Sample plug-ins are included

The SDK includes sample plug-ins which demonstrate plug-in implementation and how to use the PCoIP Virtual Channel SDK.

Important Notes and Requirements

The SDK is intended for Cloud Access Platform customers and Technology Partners.
