Users can remotely access their Mac computer as if they were on a local machine.

Teradici, the creator of PCoIP technology and Cloud Access Software, has announced general availability of Teradici CAS with support for the Mac. For the first time, users can remotely access their Mac as if they were on a local machine, with the resolution and color fidelity they need to maintain the highest quality. 

Media and creative professionals continue to work in remote and hybrid office settings, making seamless, secure, remote access to applications critical. With Teradici CAS, Mac users can now access their high-performance workflows — including VFX, animation, structural design and video editing — from anywhere. Using the Teradici PCoIP remote display protocol to transfer only pixels, corporate assets remain securely located in industry-compliant, on-site content networks. 

“Teradici CAS users have even more flexibility to re-imagine their workflows and can now securely remote into their high-powered Mac wherever they may be, including their home office,” says David Smith, CEO, Teradici. "Working with Apple, Teradici has delivered an essential solution for power users and knowledge workers who rely on secure, high-performance, remote access to their Macs. Enterprises can easily deploy Teradici CAS within their existing infrastructure, and users will love the color accuracy, responsiveness, audio-video sync, multi-monitor support and many other features that enable the Mac experience from anywhere.” 

“Many of our editors prefer using Mac, and Teradici is the first solution to provide high-performance remote desktop workflows for the Mac,” says Darin Grant, CTO of Animal Logic. "We have been early testers of the MacOS CAS agent and have been impressed by the rate of development and response to our bug reports and feature requests.” 

“Our clients in the media and entertainment industries have been anticipating high-performance remote MacOS support, and Teradici CAS delivers the same experience they expect on their on-prem workstations,” says Erik Beauchamp, media technologist at Remote Picture Labs. “Test edit sessions with the latest version of Media Composer on MacOS Catalina using Teradici’s Zero Client hardware went very smoothly, and their software did a great job of managing responsive, full-screen video playback in our typical three-monitor setup.” 

Teradici CAS supports knowledge-worker and power-user use cases for Macs running either Catalina or Big Sur in on-premises data center and cloud environments. All existing PCoIP endpoints with MacOS clients, Windows clients, Linux clients, PCoIP Zero Clients and PCoIP-enabled thin clients can connect to a MacOS host, giving IT administrators complete control of their infrastructure to choose any data center, endpoint, OS and application combination.
