The new Citrix DesktopPlayer for Mac is the first solution that let’s MacBook users take their corporate Windows virtual desktops to go – while letting IT centrally manage the Windows desktop. And you can only see it at Synergy LA 2013.

If you’re toting around a MacBook at Synergy LA 2013, head over to demo pod #11 to see a Tech Preview of this XenDesktop add-on that enables users to use their Windows virtual desktop regardless of the quality of the network connection – and even when there’s no network at all.

DesktopPlayer is the ideal BYO solution with an easy, non-disruptive installation that addresses common situations mobile professionals encounter:  slow, intermittent, or inaccessible wireless network access while on the road.

DesktopPlayer, together with XenDesktop, gives users the best of both worlds – local access on their MacBook, and anytime anywhere access to their hosted Windows virtual desktop through XenDesktop on any device.
