CeBIT 2015 – The After-Show Report


Five exciting and varied days came to an end as CeBIT finally closed its doors on 20 March 2015. Shuttle was one of the approximately 3,300 exhibiting companies from 70 countries. Between Monday and Friday there were around 201,000 visitors to the exhibition centre, of which 92 per cent were industry professionals. Although the number of exhibitors again fell, this year, CeBIT saw a 6 per cent increase in the number of visitors compared to the previous year. And many of these visitors found much to discover at the Shuttle stand in Hall 2.

This year, Shuttle had a wide range of its latest complete Mini PC solutions on show. Interested visitors were demonstrated the versatility of the company's Mini PCs and Mini PC-based solutions. The clear trend towards B2B and vertical markets was reflected by models such as the DS87 and the SH97R6 which are able to control three digital monitors each at 1080p and 4K resolution just by the integrated graphics alone. The XH97V with its Intel Core i7 processor proved how small, quiet, but powerful a 3-litre office PC can be. The SZ87R6 housed an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980 graphics card and was the example that graphics cards of this size mean no problem for an XPC equipped with a 500 W power supply unit. The SH81R4 was configured as a server and accommodated a total of nine SSDs in a case barely less than 20 cm tall.

The absolute highlight of the 2015 show was the DS57U5, which with its robust 1-litre steel case is not only capable of operating 24/7, but also offers impressive performance thanks to its next-gen Intel Core i5 Broadwell processor already built in. Its stand-out feature: This model is completely fanless relying solely on convection for cooling. Whisper-quiet operation is the user-friendly result. A machine truly unique at CeBIT.

Shuttle demonstrated that it is prepared for the future with its Mini PCs yet being compatible with the Windows 10 operating system due to be launched in 2015.

Besides the range of solutions on display, product catalogues and giveaways also drew the crowds.

Now the team from the Taiwanese Mini PC innovator is back at the desks in Elmshorn and very pleased with the results. “A very good location, very busy and lots of interesting contacts. All in all, it was the right decision to bank on CeBIT again for the fifth year in a row,” was the wording.

Even already now we are sure to say: “CeBIT, we’ll be back for more!”

The next few months promise to be extremely exciting, as the fanless DS57U5 will soon be making its way onto the shelves of European retailers.
