Picture and sound playback in high-definition quality over HDMI interface

Shuttle Inc., the market leader in the Mini-PC sector and manufacturer of Multi-Form-Factor solutions extends its portfolio with a new compact entertainment artist specifically designed to play back high-resolution Blu-ray media. The Shuttle XPC H7 7800H complete Mini-PC system is easy to use, stands for high processing power and space for expansion.

The Windows Vista based complete system includes a Blu-ray Combo drive, a card reader, hybrid TV tuner card, WLAN and a remote control. Based on the Shuttle XPC Barebone SN78SH7, this attractive Mini-PC solution barely measures 32.5 x 20.8 x 18.9 cm (DWH).

Users that want even higher performance than the built-in NVIDIA GeForce 8200 GPU already provides, can also equip the free PCI-Express X16 slot with an even larger graphics card. The heatpipe cooling system ensures the system runs quietly at maximum stability.

The very intuitively designed media centre interface of the pre-installed Windows Vista operating system is very easy to read on a television screen. Operation with the enclosed remote control is quick to learn and means this Shuttle Mini-PC can be instantly accessed from the sofa.
