Touchscreen kiosks for museums

Posted 03/03/2016

In Museums, touch screen kiosks can be used to help make your exhibits come alive with interactive tours, explanations and links to other learning materials. Touch screen museum kiosks enable you to expand the range of exhibits with photographs of related items and short video clips.  Within Art Galleries touchscreens can be used to show information about art history, information about the artists and related stories. The art gallery kiosks can show close-up images of sculptures and other art and help to inform and educate your visitors.

Eidos wheelchair accessible DDA kiosk 19 to 42in screen

Eidos is a wheelchair accessible kiosk with mutli-touch screen and screen sizes from 19in up to the Kendo version 32/42in screens.

Kiosks4business Acis and Eidos models are great platforms for use within the Museum sector.  Eidos (and Kendo) are DDA compliant wheelchair accessible kiosk designs with screen sizes ranging from 19in all the way up to high definition 42in models.  The kiosks feature superior screens and high quality multi-touch touchscreens.  For wall mounted positions or where digital signage is a requirement the Acis model is a great choice.  With slim width to maximise space for exhibits, Acis can be built with single or dual screen where the lower screen includes a touchscreen for interaction and the upper screen can be used as a digital sign.  Additionally Acis can be built to include audio, headphone socket and many other options.  Both models can be manufactured with your choice of colour and include your branding.

There are always some areas where the materials and finish need to suit their environment moreso that standard Aluminium finished kiosks.  Our recent project installed at the Bodleian library in Oxford involved the design of a completely bespoke wooden table along with enclosures with widescreen displays.

Concept kiosks suit many applications

Posted 03/03/2016

Introducing the Concept range of configurable touchscreen kiosks. We recognised early on that very few customers require base models of kiosks and many require the addition of bar code scanners, printers, keyboards and other options. Therefore we have designed a number of configurable base model concepts which can be customised with a wide range of additional options. Featuring the same high quality screens and multi-touch touchscreen along with Kiosks4business approved electronics and software expertise, the concept ranges include Eidos, Figur, Acis, Totem, Kendo and Hub models.

Start with the base model requirement - Wall mounted, free standing, DDA compliant kiosks, dual screen versions etc and specify all of the additional devices required for the application - predesigned for quick turnaround.

Whilst some applications are destined for a full-custom solution, it is often desirable to build a development / testing platform using one of the standard kiosk building blocks. Thie ensures applications developers have representative hardware quickly to speed time to market.

touchscreen kiosk for library dda library kiosk

Kiosks4business were asked to design a variant of the Eidos DDA kiosk to be used in libraries.  The brief was to include payment, receipt printing along with a high sensitivity RFID reader capable of scanning the tags in the library books.  The RFID reader itself acts as a shelf to put the books on.  Eidos was selected as one of a limited number of truly wheelchair accessible designs.
