The Pro|Edge HC5 Thin Client is based on Window's CE Operating System and driven by a AMD Geode GX533 processor. In addition to host applications, the HC5 is ideal when utilizing applications served up by Citrix Presentation Servers or Microsoft Terminal Services. The Windows CE Operating System requires a minimal amount of RAM and Flash making it an economical, powerful solution.

About the size of a three CD set, Pro|Edge is unobtrusive and occupies a small amount of desktop space. Despite its small size, the HC5 offers the scalability of increasing Flash.

I-O has partnered with Altiris to provide simple configuration, control and management. As a leader in client software management tools, Altiris offers console and web-based control, reporting alerting, policy driven software delivery, patch management, and other Altiris IT lifecycle management solutions.

Because CE is a read-only operating system, applications cannot be installed on the C8. This important feature prevents users from introducing virus, malware and unwanted programs.
