The 1.3-liter volume slim body design has a thickness of less than 40mm. On the side of the system is a VESA Mount standard screw holes as well as plenty of RS232/RS422/RS485, USB and other I/O interfaces, making the DS47 perfectly suited for digital signage kiosks where the host needs to be placed in a small space.
The HR70 -- At last year’s Computex, Shuttle showcased its concept for facial recognition applications. This year at Computex, Shuttle officially unveiled its first face recognition system, the HR70.

At a distance of 50 cm, the system can detect artifacts within an upper and lower range of 70 cm, and it is equipped with an automatic detection LED that in dimly lit environments can also provide accurate identification. In addition, the HR70 has an optional fingerprint reader, an RFID smart card reader and more to provide double or even triple authentication, offering an even higher level of security.

Since starting in 2010, Shuttle's New Notebook Ecosystem is now on the verge of its fourth year, winning recognition from overseas customers in regional brand businesses at the same time as it has achieved brisk growth. The biggest advantage of the Shuttle New Notebook Ecosystem is our design that adopts standardized motherboards, which we call SPA (Shuttle Standard PCBA). It has now reached the third generation for development of more cost-competitive Ultrabooks series models. In the ARM tablet business, we have also gradually adopted a modular design concept. During Computex, we will introduce new Windows 8 Tablet products for overseas regional brand customers.
