HP’s RGS Technology Now Works With Macs

Posted by at 11:08 am on April 18, 2016


HP announced that its Remote Graphics Software (RGS) now supports Mac receivers, giving Apple users the ability to harness the power of an HP Z Workstation.

RGS is HP’s version of a remote desktop application that is specifically designed for use with an HP Z workstation. HP RGS uses a proprietary HP3 codec to secure the connection and is meant to increase productivity and mobility by offering HP Z workstation power where ever you may need it.

The workstation performing the resource-intensive tasks is referred to as the sender, and the connecting device is known as the receiver. RGS allows multiple users to view the sender, which could be useful for interactive collaboration or conferencing. The sender can also be viewed from devices with multiple displays.

For the first time, Mac users can connect to their HP Z workstation using an HP RGS receiver, giving them access to powerful resources usually reserved only for Apple’s premium tier products. This grants HPZ workstations an increased value for power users.

RGS is compatible with Windows and Linux operating systems and is available to download now for free for existing HP Z workstation customers (it can also be purchased separately). The HP RGS Receiver for Mac is also free for HP Z workstation customers and will be coming soon, but standalone pricing and exact availability hasn’t been revealed yet.
