Dell (News - Alert) is extending the value of cloud client computing by introducing a unique solution called Dell Wyse "Project Ophelia.”
The ultra-compact multimedia-capable device is designed to enable people to access secured professional assets and personal content via the cloud.
The new launch is about the size of a USB memory stick and will let users convert a TV or monitor into a functioning interactive personal display device.
This conversion can be achieved with the help of a smartphone, tablet or a computer.
Project Ophelia is built on the popular Dell Wyse software technology and is claimed to transform ordinary displays into a thin client for work, demos or presentations.
This thin client is flexible, can be securely managed and is communications-enabled, says Dell.
Project Ophelia is self-powered through a monitor and is small enough to fit into a pocket.
“Mobile devices have small screens, tablets and PCs aren't always convenient to haul around, and all these devices require batteries that can run down,” said Tarkan Maner, vice president and general manager, Cloud Client Computing at Dell. “ Project Ophelia turns capable TVs and monitors into personal and reliable Wi-Fi enabled work or entertainment stations - all managed easily by IT via Dell Wyse Cloud Client Manager.”
Project Ophelia is ideal for consumers who want to access cloud-based games without using laptops or tablets. This solution will also be appreciated by online gamers who want to leverage larger display for an improved interactive experience.
Project Ophelia is compatible with several existing Dell Wyse thin clients and software products and is managed by Dell Wyse Cloud Client Manager Software-as-a-Service.
Recently, Dell’s PC shipments were down 20 percent in 4th quarter.
