Kasm Technologies Releases KasmVNC v1 Open-source VNC Server with Web-Native, Agentless, 4K, 60+ FPS, Lossless Streaming Capability
Kasm Technologies, has announced the release of KasmVNC v1. KasmVNC is a web-native open-source rendering technology used for streaming desktop, application and web containers to the browser. This release of KasmVNC is the first official, non-beta release, and includes a variety of new features making it the most advanced VNC Server available.
KasmVNC is the streaming tech for Workspaces container images. It was built for the next generation of streaming services with GPU and Arm processor support in collaboration with VirtualGL and Arm. KasmVNC is a major departure from other VNC flavors, breaking from the RFB specification to support modern technologies and enhance security:
- Web-based/Agentless – Designed for web-native remote desktops with a web server/sockets.
- Streaming Performance – Increased frame rate and performance of the web client. Users will notice a 150%+ increase in frame rate over previous versions.
- Cybersecurity – Enhanced security with HTTPS transport and disabled legacy VNC RFB HTTP Basic authentication method.
- Lossless Mode – Lossless streaming utilizing the Quite OK Image “QOI” compression format to achieve full image accuracy at the highest frame rate possible. *Note: Lossless mode intended for high throughput, low latency local LAN implementation as it can consume greater than 1 Gbps with HD+ resolutions at 60fps.
“Kasm v1 represents the culmination of a number of performance, security, and usability enhancements,” said Matt McClaskey, Kasm Technologies CTO, “these features, along with additional platform support and the documentation-as-code project make KasmVNC the most advanced VNC server available and ready to take on enterprise environments.”
Additional features highlighted in this release include:
- Data Loss Prevention features
- Multi-threaded image encoding for increased/smoother frame rate
- WebRTC UDP Transit
- Full screen video detection and dynamic jpeg/webp image compression based on screen change rates
- Simplified management using YAML-based settings for global server and individual user configurations
- Documentation-as-code project for real-time, release-based documentation
This code is complimented by the Kasm Workspaces open-source images that are available directly through Kasm’s Docker Verified Publisher images on DockerHub in Technical Collaboration with Docker.
