3M Optical Systems Division has revealed that it has enabled a new zero client, the HP t410 All-in-One Smart Zero Client that operates at 13W. The company has enabled what it claims as the first all-in-one zero client capable of being powered by Type 1 PoE (IEEE 802.3af) using its Dual Brightness Enhancement Film (DBEF) for LED backlight monitors.

The technology from 3M does away with the need for AC power cords and consumes as much as 78 percent less power than a standard desktop, boasted the company. Specifically, 3M's display solutions for LED backlight monitors enable an all-in-one power over Ethernet (PoE) thin-client computing solution, in which the power and data of a 'smart' LED monitor can be powered via an Ethernet connection.

Leveraging DBEF, it is possible to create a clutter-free office without power cords that can create nuisances and potential safety hazards. This energy-efficient design enables enhanced ergonomics for desktop displays, simplification and a reduction in components through the removal of the AC/DC power conversion, detailed 3M.
