NICE DCV added the following features:
  • Web client clipboard improvements. With these improvements, you can now copy and paste PNG format images using the NICE DCV web client on Google Chrome and Microsoft Edge.

  • A screenshot blocking feature for the Windows and macOS clients. This feature adds an additional layer of security by preventing users from taking screenshots of NICE DCV session content. When enabled, any screenshots that a user capture result in a blank screen.

  • Streaming quality improvements. Streaming quality improved specifically through better “build-to-lossless” performance when using the QUIC protocol.

  • A certificate-validation-policy option to specify the behavior of your client was addded. You can use it when the server presents an untrusted X.509 certificate, such as a self-signed certificate.

  • The number of channels configured in the Audio Driver at run time can be changed.

  • The Pressure2K option was added to the dcvinput Xorg module. You can use this to change the pressure sensitivity range of the stylus from 0-65335 to 0-2048, for compatibility with applications, such as Mari and Nuke

  • Support for the experimental WebCodecs API on Google Chrome and Microsoft Edge was added. When you enable this API in the browser, the NICE DCV web client can use it to accelerate video decoding and deliver higher frame rates.

Changes:
  • The NICE DCV web client is now a separate package on Linux and an optional component in the Windows installer. With this change, customers can decide whether to deploy the web client.

  • The H.264 High Profile is now supported when the NVENC encoder is used. Using NVENC encoder with NVIDIA GPUs, you can reduce bandwidth usage while maintaining the same image quality.

  • NICE DCV server now uses all available GPUs for compression on machines with more than one GPU.

  • All Windows drivers shipped with NICE DCV are now WHQL certified.

  • OpenSSL was updated to version 1.1.1.
