The DS81i5SCLA Scala-Certified Digital Media Player from Shuttle is a media player equipped with 120GB of hard-drive space, a 65W Intel i5 processor, and 4GB RAM. The media player comes pre-loaded with the Scala player software, making it easy to install and use in any Scala-based application. The media player supports international VESA mount standards and can be fit to diverse commercial applications. Two DisplayPorts display 4K content and allow users to play ultra-high quality video and multimedia content. The DS81i5SCLA provides a wide range of inputs & outputs and high-speed storage interfaces including USB 2.0, USB 3.0, RS232/422/485, SATA 6 Gb/s, and Mini PCIe. A heat pipe cooling module with a smart fan design using 90W enables efficient cooling and high performance.
Slim Design and Easy Assembly
The DS81i5SCLA features a 1.3-liter slim design and a body thickness of only 1.7", making it well-suited for diverse commercial applications. It has no daughter board; this makes for easy assembly as well as enhanced thermal efficiency and system stability due to increased airflow.
Intel 4th-Generation Core Processor
The DS81i5SCLA is equipped with an Intel H81 Express Chipset, an LGA 1150 socket, and a 65W Intel fourth-generation Core i5 Haswell processor. The system supports dual-channel DDR3 1600 memory with a maximum capacity of 8GB. The CPU-integrated Intel HD graphics 4600 Core is compatible with DirectX11.1 to deliver significantly increased processing and graphics performance.
Graphic core may vary depending on CPU
High-Speed Transmission Interface
The DS81i5SCLA is equipped with an Intel H81 Express Chipset and supports SATA 6 Gb/s high-speed storage interface and USB 3.0 ports. SATA 6 Gb/s has twice the transfer rate of SATA 3 Gb/s; USB 3.0 (supports up to 5 Gb/s of bandwidth) provides 10 times more data-access speed than a USB 2.0 port.
Heat-Pipe Cooling Technology
The DS81i5SCLA features a heat-pipe cooling module with smart fan design. The precise vent design allows for constant air circulation between the inside and outside of the machine, resulting in high stability and low noise for long-term operation. The media player adopts ball-bearing fans rather than traditional sleeve-bearing fans for a longer life span.
Dual-Screen Display Output
The DS81i5SCLA provides two DisplayPorts and one HDMI video output. Users can choose between "HDMI + DisplayPort" and "DisplayPort + DisplayPort" configurations. An adapter can be used to convert a DisplayPort to HDMI or DVI port to diversify signal selection and provide the options of dual monitor or standalone display.
4K Ultra HD Support
The DS81i5SCLA provides video-output DisplayPorts to support 4K high resolution (3840 x 2160). With four times the resolution of Full HD, viewers can enjoy 4K imaging.
Two Built-in PCIe Slots
The DS81i5SCLA features strong expandability with one full-size and one half-size mini PCIe slot. This compact system supports mSATA SSD and Wi-Fi modules, among other modules.
Dual Gigabit LAN Support
The DS81i5SCLA features dual-gigabit LAN to support 10 Mb/s, 100 Mb/s, and 1000 Mb/s transfer capacity as well as Wake On LAN and Teaming Mode functions. Connect to a single network using two cables at once with an appropriate switch (teaming mode with load balancing or fail-over function) or to two different networks, depending on your needs.
With four built-in USB 2.0 ports at the front panel, two RS232 ports (one RS232 and one RS422/RS485), two USB 3.0, and two USB 2.0 ports at the rear panel, the DS81i5SCLA can easily connect to peripherals such as thermal printers, label printers, and bar-code scanners. It offers a wide range of vertical applications. An adapter can be used to convert RS232 to USB port for supporting more devices.
External Power Button
The external power button is the key to vertical applications where the power-on button is out of reach. The DS81i5SCLA has a power-on from remote line feature, enabling users to power on from a separate location. There is a four-pin connector at the back panel of the media player; this connector also provides the Clear CMOS function. The BIOS settings can be reset without opening the chassis.
Power-On by RTC Support
Enter BIOS to set up the Power-on by RTC function that allows users to set a time to boot up the computer; this can also be turned on and off via the Windows task scheduler. With Power-on after Power-failure function, the DS81i5SCLA will automatically reboot in the event of a power supply interruption.
Industrial Solid Capacitors with High Stability
The media player uses industrial capacitors in order to meet the environmental operation demands of commercial applications. Its rugged design allows for 24/7 stable operation over long periods of time, even in 122⁰F environments.
With use of SSD and wide-range-temperature SODIMM
Watchdog Timer Security Protection
Watchdog Timer provides security protection for systems that need to operate continuously for long periods of time. Use the Watch Dog utility to maintain the normal operation and stability of the system at all times.
VESA Mount Capability
The compact 1.7"-thick player has multiple screw holes on the side. The design is VESA-mount compliant and allows for versatile integration into hardware systems. This space-saving capability is well-suited for applications of digital signage with limited space.
The DS81i5SCLA consumes less than 90W of power in full use and delivers stable, high-performance, long-term operation. With built-in heat-pipe technology, the system features low-noise operation and reduced power consumption. This design saves energy costs.
Multiple Operating System Support
Windows 7, Windows 8, and Linux are supported.
