Dell unveiled a solution that extends the value of cloud client computing to the next level, enabling people to manage the increasing convergence of their work lives and personal lives by using a compact, portable device to access not only secured professional assets, but also personal content via the cloud 

The ultra-compact multimedia-capable device, called Dell Wyse“ Project Ophelia,”is slightly larger than a USB memory stick and enables users to convert any capable TV or monitor into a functioning interactive personal display device without using a computer, tablet or smartphone. 

Today, people are increasingly looking to take and securely access their personal and professional content wherever they go. Despite rapid advances in mobile technology, however, they still face challenges when it comes to securely accessing desired information when they are away from the office. There is no easy way, for example, to access photos, music or video from a personal cloud or entertainment subscription when away from a PC, smartphone or tablet. Equally, professionals find it difficult to securely access and share work applications, presentations and content if they are away from their usual devices, or worse, if their mobile devices are misplaced or fail during travel.  It is also difficult for IT organizations to enable and manage access to enterprise apps and content for highly mobile users, especially those who may be without their preferred laptop, tablet or smartphone.

 Built on Dell Wyse software technology already used on millions of devices, Project Ophelia transforms ordinary displays into a window to entertainment, communications and a person’s own personal cloud. The device also allows business users to instantly turn a display into a flexible, securely managed, communications-enabled thin client for work, demos or presentations. These capabilities are packed into advice barely larger than a USB stick that is self-powered through a monitor and easily fits inside your pocket.

The product addresses a variety of uses being fuelled by the growing need to access cloud-based apps and resources at any time, or whenever a larger screen high definition digital display provides a superb user experience.  Examples include:

§  Consumers who desire in-the-moment access to cloud-based games or content but do not have their laptop or tablet in their possession;

§  On-line gamers wishing to take advantage of a much larger display for an improved interactive experience;

§  Highly mobile professionals who may not have a large display capable device with them; and

§  Cloud access providers wishing to provide an attractively priced device included with carrier internet/wireless services

 Availability:

Project Ophelia will be available in the first half of 2013 from Dell Cloud Client Computing.
