Griffin continues to expand Business Solutions offerings with launch of Kiosk
Nashville, TN – June 28, 2012 – Griffin Technology, one of the world’s foremost creators of innovations for everyday life, has announced the immediate availability of Kiosk, a secure display mount for all iPad models. Kiosk is designed for use in retail, restaurants, museums, hotels, classrooms, medical offices and other highly trafficked settings. Also available is the Kiosk App, which helps create a controlled interactive experience desired for Kiosk users.
The Kiosk provides protection and security while maintaining access to the iPad tablet's Multi-Touch display. Impact-resistant PC housing and included security screws lock the iPad in place, while a durable, flexible arm adjusts the viewing angle. The included power cable runs through the center of the steel arm, keeping it fully enclosed.
The Kiosk displays an iPad in portrait or landscape orientation and is available in two height options: Floor Mount (47.5" to center of iPad, $299) or Table Mount (12" to center of iPad, $199). On both versions, the Kiosk’s base bolts to the floor or tabletop with included hardware. Three faceplates come standard for optional access to the home button and camera.
“We’ve seen tremendous success in our Business Solutions products and the Kiosk is poised to be another popular solution,” said J. Curtis, Director of Griffin’s B2B Product Development. “We've been showcasing our Kiosk at our first-ever retail store in London, displaying new apps and product information that customers can interact with while shopping.”
Designed to work in conjunction with Griffin’s Kiosk, the Kiosk App provides a secure public installation that turns an iPad into an interactive information center. Just as the physical Kiosk allows control over visitors’ access to the home button and camera, the Kiosk app helps focus the Kiosk toward its intended use, and provides the tools needed for control over multiple-kiosk installations. The Kiosk App features:
- User-defined home URL and web domain.
- Timed reload of home page when not in use.
- Control of public use by creating a whitelist of web domains.
- A customizable Navigation Bar with shortcut buttons for pre-determined URL.
- Identification of each kiosk on the network by number or by name.
