A touch screen information kiosk is fundamentally an input device housed in a special container that functions through physical touch upon the touch screen.

A person’s finger on the kiosk display screen does all the functions a mouse pointer does. By simply touching the display screen, users can perform various functions.

What is a Touch Screen Kiosk?

A touch screen kiosk enables interactivity via a specialized type of digital display that responds to pressure or placement of certain types of objects on the screen, such as a finger, or a stylus. Touch screen kiosks are able to provide functionality to end users that traditional, static or non-touchscreen kiosks cannot, as they allow for greater interactivity. Touch screen kiosks can display information, entertainment, important communications, dispense tickets, and take both cash and electronic payments. Additionally, these kiosks are generally WiFi-enabled, allowing for remote support and software updates, making them easier to maintain. Finally, touch screen kiosks are available in a wide range of sizes that can be customized for their intended use and function as necessary. 


How a touch information kiosk works

Multi touch screen kiosk displays are used in retail and commercial settings across the globe. These types of information kiosks house a computer terminal with custom made software. They allow the user to navigate their way around given information using the touch technology, while preventing them from accessing the computer system. Modern information kiosks include Wi-Fi capabilities and 3G connectivity. They are also usually built with a protective face panel using Perspex or toughened glass.

The best commercial touch screen displays available are “all-in-one” integrated touch screen kiosks.

All-in-one integration means the hardware (computer and content management system) is integrated into the display itself. To achieve this, the kiosk is purpose made with a built-in industrial high specification computer. This means there are no external devices needed such as cables, external computer or third party clip on components. These all-in-one screens are available with various configurations and operating systems e.g. windows, MAC, Linux or Android. They can also be built into any size display required, on or in any style case housing or pedestal.

As you can see, thanks to advances in technology information kiosks have been revolutionized. Retailers can now engage with their customers in a fun and informative ways, and businesses and governments can provide a free public service through the use of this technology. By using all-in-one integrated screens you too can change the way you interact with the world.
