Shuttle Inc., the world’s leading designer and manufacturer of small form factor (SFF) computers today announced the agreement of a new partner in USA, StrandVison. StrandVision will sell a new digital signage point-of-display digital media player. The device is based on Shuttle DS61 hardware that comes preloaded with, and is optimized to display, StrandVision’s patented digital signage content software.

Branded the StrandVision R360 Digital Media Player, the new player is a slim (6.5" x 7.5" x 1.75”), powerful x86-based Linux digital signage platform that offers the best quality, performance and connectivity to process high-quality digital media. When coupled with StrandVision’s Internet–based, hassle-free, digital signage software, it presents an unparalleled electronic signage package.
“At StrandVision our goal is to make digital signage setup and administration as quick and easy as possible and the R360 Media Player supports that goal,” commented Mike Strand, StrandVision founder and CEO. “Customers simply plug the device into their display and connect it to the Internet. It automatically selects one of the StrandVision digital signage host servers from the cloud, logs in using a preloaded username and password, initializes the connection and begins transmitting the user's digital signage content in seconds. Remotely managed digital signage doesn’t get any easier.”
The R360 Digital Media Player works seamlessly with StrandVision’s cloud digital signage servers and requires virtually no local administration. The fully configured player includes universal hardware to mount the unit directly onto a display or a wall mount, making installation quick and simple.
“Joining Shuttle’s innovative hardware with StrandVision’s software creates an easy-to-implement and manage package that will meet its customers’ needs,” said Marty Lash, director, sales and marketing, Shuttle Computer Group, Inc.

Complete Digital Signage Solution

The R360 Digital Media Player is remotely updated and managed by the StrandVision patented digital signage software minimizing end-user housekeeping. Each customer unit constantly receives digital signage content updates from the StrandVision Web portal yet can run independently if there is an Internet interruption. The StrandVision player is capable of self-correcting most issues and automatically sends system performance updates and alerts to StrandVision and digital signage system administrators.
