Shuttle had an impressive display of its products at CES this year. Many of its small cases and computers were found in abundance, along with several other new additions. Since Shuttle PCs are well-known as the backbone for many home theater systems, Shuttle had one of its systems set up in a home theater layout with an LCD TV mounted on the wall behind it. Also, since dual monitors are becoming more popular and more common, Shuttle was also showing off the capability to use dual displays with its PCs.
A brand new market for Shuttle is tablet PCs. Shuttle's new tablets are powered by the NVIDIA Tegra chips, so great battery life and awesome power out of such a tiny device can be expected. They are currently available running Android 2.2 FroYo, so Flash capability is on the list of features as well! Bluetooth, WiFi and 3G is also available.
Shuttle also had a few of its barebone cases on display at the booth. The H3 (right) and H7 (left) are based around the SandyBridge and LGA1366 i7 chips, respectively and are capable of housing a full-size graphics card. Between the two barebones is a CoolIT Eco self-contained water cooling system, which would be a great addition to quietly keep the CPU cool.
Another market Shuttle has placed itself in is the security and surveillance market. The D1416 has an integrated 7" touchscreen display for an all-in-one surveillance solution, with up to 16 channels of real-time recording. The software is also capable of motion detection and remote access, providing utmost flexibility.
