Shuttle Launches the DS47 – A Hardware Solution for the Professional Digital Signage Player Market
Shuttle Inc.’s Application PC Business Center has primarily focused on manufacturing Shuttle brand products for the XPC, Slim PC, All-in-One, and NAS markets. Its focus during this year’s Computex Taipei 2013 exhibition will be on the theme of “commercial applications,” with products containing a series of players specially designed for the application and development of Digital Signage and KIOSK.
Among them, the DS47 is the latest fanless Full-HD slim thin computer model equipped with an Intel ® Celeron dual-core processor and based on a 1.3-liter slim body design. It features a body thickness of less than 40 mm with multiple screw holes on spread along the side of the casing, while the backing at its base is designed to accept various accessory cards, a design which not only meets with international VESA mounting standards but also allows users to decide the most appropriate back placement configuration depending on different usage environments. This makes the DS47 ideally suited for Digital Signage or KIOSK environments in which space for host machine placement tends to be limited.
The DS47 is equipped with a high-performance Intel ® Celeron 847 dual-core processor. It has a built-in Intel ® HD Graphics core with a maximum TDP of only 17W and a maximum memory support of DDR3-1333 16GB that provides HDMI, DVI-I video output interface, and dual screen display function. It can play a variety of media contents in a Full-HD / 1080P high-definition video and audio format. It comes equipped with functions such as dual Gigabit-LAN, Teaming mode support, Wake on LAN, and an IEEE 802.11b/g/n wireless network card with a maximum transfer rate of up to 300 Mbps, which significantly increases remote data transmission efficiency for Digital Signage and KIOSK systems for substantial savings of operating time.
Internally, the DSS47 is integrated with a large-area fanless cooling module featuring water-cooled cooling thermal pipes combined with precisely positioned cooling holes vent design, a design capable of quickly venting the heat generated from various thermal sources of important components within the machine. It uses solid state capacitors and high-quality components that can operate stably and extensively under 24/7 conditions, and is integrated with Shuttle's own exclusive low-power noise reduction mechanistic design that requires only a 65W external power supply to meet the system electricity needs during operation, providing the reduced energy consumption, cost savings, and quiet operation that are ideally suited for low-noise usage environments such as hospitals, libraries, and the like.
The front panel boasts built-in RS232 and RS232/RS422/RS485 interfaces, along with four USB 2.0 ports. The rear panel has two built-in USB 3.0 high speed ports, allowing the DS47 to connect easily with various peripherals such as thermal printers, label printers, laser barcode scanners, and more. Therefore, in addition to being ideally suited for Digital Signage and KIOSK systems, the DS47 is also an excellent choice for use in diverse application systems such as POS (Point of Sales), education, health care, automatic control equipment, office computer, and customer service systems.
