Plasma Screen Kiosks Key Terms
Some key terms for designing and selecting plasma screen kiosksIn the changing world of business, plasma screen kiosks are becoming an attractive way to get "customer face time" without human labor. They are also giving consumers more convenience and control over the way they buy goods and take care of personal transactions. Plasma screen kiosks utilize the quality of an LCD plasma screen to help provide visuals. Knowing about the types and functions of plasma screen kiosks will help businesses looking to design and place these either in an internal site or in a public setting.
Touch screen kioskA specific technology that is getting recognition in the field of kiosks is touch screen technology. Touch screen is when users can touch the plasma screen surface of the kiosk to enter data or commands for the software.
ID kioskThe ID kiosk is a type of kiosk that uses technology to effectively view and monitor documentation of individuals passing through a checkpoint. ID kiosks are becoming a new mover in kiosk designs as new technology makes them better at scanning personal documents.
Information kioskAn information kiosk is simply a kiosk designed to give users specific info at a specific locality. The roles of informational kiosks are usually so specific that makers can scale down elements of the design to make these stand-alone appliances cheaper and easier to maintain; for example, the processing power of a plasma screen info kiosk can be less than that of most other "workstation" types.
Self-service kioskMany plasma screen fitted kiosks are self-service, using one or more of the technologies described above. Self-service kiosks are used to dispense more and more of the consumer goods we buy, replacing a lot of human labor.
Outdoor kiosksPlasma screen kiosks can also be placed outdoors. Outdoor kiosks have ruggedized features to stand up to the elements, as well as an overhang to protect the plasma screen. These are used for a variety of roles such as ATM machines.
