Applications

Meeting rooms. The WD390U's thin client capabilities give every employee access to all of their data whenever and wherever it is needed. That means no file transfers, no flash drives, no connecting and disconnecting of laptops, no incompatible cables, no client-side software installations, and (most importantly) no more wasted meetings -- or at least no more wasted meetings on account of faulty technology.

Classrooms. When I was in school, "class project" meant a trip to the craft store and some poster board. These days, it often means PowerPoint. Students can now bring their project files on their smartphones or tablets, or retrieve them from the school network without leaving the classroom. A child might forget their homework, but chances are slim they'd ever forget their phone.

Training. If you have a common set of documents and need them to be accessible to your entire staff, stick them on a server and connect the WD390U to the network. Your staff will be able to access the documents remotely from any room in the facility.

Benefits

Cost. Since the thin client functionality is built into the projector, you don't need to install a thin client in the conference room. Multiply that by however many conference rooms you have in your offices and the savings could be quite significant.

Hassle-free. The biggest benefit to the WD390U by far is that users no longer need to worry about setup. With no equipment to connect, there are fewer things to go wrong, which means fewer help desk tickets and more time for other projects.

Versatility. It is hard to think of a device that cannot be connected to the WD390U in some way. Computers can obviously use the standard video ports or connect via USB. USB thumb drives can be plugged in to the projector's USB port directly and documents can then be opened natively on the projector. Tablets and smartphones can connect wirelessly using WiFiDoc. Network storage can be accessed via RDP. If you have a copy of the document in question on some kind of device or storage media, there will be at least one way to get it onto the screen.
