StrandVision LLC and Shuttle Computer Group Inc. recently announced a marketing agreement under which 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 inches by 7.5 inches by 1.8 inches), x86-based Linux digital signage platform that has been optimized to work seamlessly with StrandVision's cloud digital signage servers and to require little local administration, the companies said in the announcement. The fully configured player includes universal hardware to mount the unit directly onto a display or a wall mount.
"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," said 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."
