HP is helping retailers to expand multitouch business applications across HP thin clients with Windows Embedded Standard 7 WS7P SKU.

The HP t610 Flexible Thin Client with Windows Embedded Standard 7 WS7P SKU offers easy deployment of multitouch digital signage and kiosks for banking and retail self-service scenarios and includes enhanced security lockdown, enriched media capabilities and more efficient network management, Jeff Groudan, director, marketing, Thin Clients, HP, said in a company press release.

"HP thin clients with Windows Embedded Standard 7 WS7P SKU are ideal for businesses who want to easily add multitouch capabilities to thin clients powering retail or hospitality kiosks, or who want to customize and control user access policies more effectively," he said. "The increased versatility of the Windows Embedded Standard platform will provide HP thin client customers with new options to drive their cloud business strategies."

HP thin clients running Windows Embedded Standard 7 WS7P SKU also offer key features:

Microsoft DirectAccess, which makes it easier for customers to secure their remote workforce — without the need for a VPN. Remote users can securely access enterprise resources, and businesses can easily customize and control policies.

Multilingual capabilities, including out-of-box language support for the Americas, Europe, Asia Pacific and China, allowing employees to work more productively, regardless of language or location

Windows Server BranchCache for wide area network optimization, which helps increase the network responsiveness of applications, giving users in remote offices an experience more like working in the main office.

"Windows Embedded Standard 7 WS7P SKU not only offers a more enhanced user experience and multitouch support, but further enhances the security capabilities for IT managers of embedded devices across intelligent systems," said Cuong Pham, product manager, Windows Embedded, Microsoft. "We are excited these new HP Thin Clients can help bring solutions to the enterprise that support key IT strategies."

Windows Embedded Standard 7 WS7P SKU comes preinstalled on the HP t610 Flexible Series Thin Clients and is available now.
