Remote FX USB redirection available in 2012 Virtualized Hyper-V sessions

Last Modified: 2012-08-28
I would like for Windows 7 users who log into a HyperV virtualized Terminal Server hosted on a Windows 2012 server to have USB re-direction available to them while they are in their Terminal Session via the new 2012 RemoteFX.  


a) Possible? If so what are the steps/requirements at the server, VM and the workstation
end?  Example Server has to be running xxx with video card yyy and VM has to running OS zzz ....

b)  What is the impact on video traffic via remote FX? Can  the traffic be shaped in some way - QOS-type situation?

2) If not available currently via Microsoft product available through any third-party products - links would be appreciated?
