Sponsored news: Shuttle announces Navori partnership

Shuttle Inc. announces a new partnership with Navori, global leader in content management software for digital signage, to have Navori certified media players.

Navori has over fifteen years of industry expertise and offers player and server software that is robust and easy-to-use. Shuttle specializes in small form factor barebones PC hardware for digital signage, interactive kiosk, and vending machine applications in the retail, restaurant, food service, corporate, healthcare, and hospitality industries.

Two of Shuttle’s media players have undergone a series of tests to ensure compatibility and performance, the DS81 and the XH97V. Since the devices are fully capable of running Navori QL player software, they’re easy to install and use in any Navori-based digital signage application. “Attaining Navori certification allows Shuttle to continue in our endeavor to add value to our customers,” says Kathleen Chen, International Sales Director, Shuttle. “The combination of Navori’s low-operation cost and high-efficiency software with Shuttle’s strong processing performance systems makes for a highly valuable offering.”

Jerome Moeri, CEO, Navori states, “The DS81’s and XH97V’s exceptionally high processing power, connectivity, and ability to deliver 4K video content make this a strong option for Navori users. We’re excited to add the DS81 and XH97V to our list of certified media players and look forward to testing more in the future.” The Shuttle devices are barebones media players made to drive 4th Generation Intel Core i3/i5/i7 processors and are capable of delivering either 4K video on one display or Full HD video on up to two or three displays (DS81 and XH97V, respectively).

Compact, the 43mm thick media player is VESA mountable and runs quiet and cool in 0-50 °C environments. Whether for restaurant, hotel, retail, transportation, or hospital environments, the DS81 is designed to fit inconspicuously into a variety of digital signage applications so as to not interfere with viewer experience.

The XH97V is a triple-display media player, designed to eliminate the cost of additional hardware for digital signage applications using two or three displays. It’s capable of pushing Full HD video content on three independent displays or 4K Ultra HD on one display. The XH97V is built on Intel’s H97 chipset with support for 4th Generation Core i3/i5/i7 processors and features enough space to support three 2.5” HDD/SSD or one 3.5” HDD/SSD.

“Navori certification ensures a seamless digital signage experience for installers and integrators. Simply install Navori QL Player software, connect to the internet or LAN and the system is ready to begin pushing signage content,” adds Kathleen Chen. 

Shuttle and Navori have already had some public exposure together at this year’s InfoComm MEA in Dubai, where Shuttle digital signage content was powered by Navori software. Throughout the next year customers and partners of Shuttle and Navori can be on the lookout for future collaboration at roadshows around the world.
