NICE DCV version 2023.1 introduces new features and enhancements, such as a new Windows display driver which optimizes the graphics pipeline and reduces the overall CPU usage. NICE DCV is a high-performance remote display protocol that is designed to help customers securely access remote desktop or application sessions, including 3D graphics applications hosted on servers with high-performance GPUs.

NICE DCV version 2023.1 offers the following features and improvements:

  • Support for the redirection of in-session WebAuthN requests from web applications running in remote Google Chrome or Microsoft Edge browsers. Redirected requests are channeled to the client, allowing FIDO2 compliant authenticators such as YubiKey or Windows Hello to validate user identity.
  • A new Indirect Display Driver (IDD) for Windows hosts optimizes the graphics pipeline and significantly reduces overall CPU usage by protocol. This revamped graphics pipeline is optimized for higher frame rates.
  • The Windows Performance Counters can now be used to track various DCV protocol metrics such as frame rates, network bandwidth, CPU usage, and more, which can help users to understand the performance of their network and DCV protocol. Through these counters, third-party monitoring solutions can be integrated with DCV.

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.
