NICE DCV version 2022.0 introduces multiple new features such as game controller support and high color accuracy support. NICE DCV is a high-performance remote display protocol that helps customers securely access remote desktop or application sessions, including 3D graphics applications hosted on servers with high-performance GPUs.

NICE DCV version 2022.0 contains the following features and improvements:

  • Game controller support - Customers can connect their gamepads to DCV Windows native client to play games streamed from remote Windows servers. DCV supports Xbox and DualShock controllers via both wireless and wired connections.
  • Support for high color accuracy - When this feature is enabled, DCV will deliver a complete set of color information without any visual loss (YUV 4:4:4). This feature is useful for workloads such as video production, visual effects, and computer aided design, where the users require a perceptually lossless experience when interacting with dynamic content.
  • Improved collaboration experience - New UI improvements make it easier for users to get notified when someone joins the session. Session owners can also manage collaborators and viewers of a session.
  • Support for CentOS Stream 8 - NICE DCV server software adds support of CentOS Stream 8 Linux Distribution.
  • Hot update of SSL certificates - Customers can update their SSL certificates without needing to restart the DCV session.
  • Networking improvements - DCV adds support of IPv6 for both WebSocket (TCP) and QUIC (UDP). Customers can also specify DCV server software and DCV Connection Gateway to listen to a network interface, which is useful when multiple network interfaces (e.g. one for internet and one for intranet) are present.

NICE DCV is free to use on Amazon EC2 instances. It is available in both Amazon Web Services China (Beijing) Region, operated by Sinnet and Amazon Web Services China (Ningxia) Region, operated by NWCD.
