New Aqua Connect Terminal Server 3.1 sets new standards in Mac terminal services.

For immediate release

Plymouth UK, 31st March, 2009. Aqua Connect Inc., the leader in Mac terminal services, today announces the release of Aqua Connect Terminal Server 3.1. This new version, which is distributed exclusively in Europe by Avanquest Solutions, contains significant feature upgrades including OpenGL support, audio capabilities, local printing support and clipboard options.

“Version 3.1 reflects Aqua Connect’s dedication to the continuous improvement of the user experience,” said Renee Mehrian, acting CEO. “This new release meets the demands of our customers and raises the bar on terminal services as a whole”.

The newly added features will be available to all users who utilise Microsoft’s Remote Desktop Protocol. One of the most exciting updates is providing users with the ability to stream audio to an Aqua Connect session. Network printing services have also been upgraded to allow users the ability to print to a local printer.

The 3.1 release focuses on increasing compatibility with existing and future applications. Users can now copy and paste text from their desktop into the terminal session which can now be run in a greater variety of screen resolutions.

“With this latest release of Aqua Connect Terminal Server, we can deliver the Mac multi-media capabilities to clients allowing for an enhanced user experience,” said Joseph Cohen, CTO. “In addition there are several performance and scalability enhancements to this release allowing IT administrators to deploy larger Aqua Connect Terminal Server installations”.

Beyond upgrading the feature set, the 3.1 release also includes performance and speed increases via the RDP protocol. Users on certain Windows and Linux machines will experience improved performance including all users who employ bitmap caching.

Chris Thompson Managing Director of Avanquest Solutions commented “We consider Aqua Connect Terminal Server to be one of the most significant recent additions to our product portfolio. Increasing popularity of the Mac and the growing focus on thin client technology has demonstrated an overwhelming market need for such a product. This latest release, with its powerful new additions and enhancements, marks an important advance in the development of terminal services.”
