CITY OF INDUSTRY, Calif., February 18, 2015 —Shuttle Computer Group, Inc., one of the world’s leading designers of small form factor computers, and NoviSign, a premier SaaS (Software as a Service) digital signage software provider, today announced their digital signage bundle that makes creative, interactive, eye-catching digital signage simple and easy to use, at a remarkable price. The bundle will be demonstrated in Booth #646 at Digital Signage Expo, Las Vegas Convention Center, March 11-12, 2015.
Expected to sell for under $299 retail, Shuttle’s new DS2ALSNOVI package includes a lifetime software license and combines Shuttle’s DSA2LS Android-based media player with NoviSign’s software pre-imaged for plug-and-play simplicity.
“We’re simplifying digital signage in a whole new way,” said Marty Lash, director sales and marketing, Shuttle Computer Group. “Our bundle makes it easier for system integrators to reach more people, in more markets, than ever before, and do it more profitably.”
Shuttle’s DSA2LS low cost digital signage player is housed in a small, robust one-liter metal chassis, and is powered by a Freescale ARM® i.MX6 DualLite 1 GHz Dual Core processor for super-fast, super-rich graphics. Its built-in 2D/3D GPU provides sharp and crisp 1080p full-HD graphics and features several USB ports and one serial port for greater installation flexibility. Designed for commercial applications with industrial-grade components and fanless operation, the DSA2LS is energy efficient and approved for reliable 24/7 nonstop operation.
NoviSign’s Digital Signage Studio content management software is intuitive, easy to use, and provides an incredibly rich environment for live and dynamic digital signage campaigns. The software allows any user, even one with very limited IT experience, to create, schedule, broadcast and manage digital signage campaigns in just a few steps. Templates for corporate, retail, hospitality, education, and other industries are available for quick and effective installation. Content is then sent to the Shuttle DS2ALSNOVI player via the Internet or a wireless local network.
The software is designed in “layers,” with drag-and-drop functionality, starting with very basic image/video content, up to a complex mixture of image, video, rolling or static text and embedded widgets such as: clock, RSS and YouTube feeds, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, shapes, backgrounds, logos and more.
The new bundle includes cloud-based storage, and connectivity is designed for a one-to-one relationship with account owner and player. Users who want more cloud-based storage or additional players may do so through NoviSign at specially discounted prices.
“This new bundle is a result of a long and fruitful collaboration between Shuttle and NoviSign,” said Gil Matzliah, CEO and co-founder. “Both companies realized that the combination of a dedicated, state of the art, digital signage player with a robust, dynamic, cloud-based Content Management System will provide tangible value to our SMB customers.”
Shuttle’s player is specifically designed to meet the challenging needs of digital signage applications; this is its main differentiator from ‘generic’ Android, TV-based players.
“The DS2ALNOVI bundle brings to market a fresh wind of true, valuable collaboration between hardware and software providers– it’s the perfect synergy,” added Matzliah.
