Olea Kiosks announced the official launch of its pedestal-style Milan Kiosk that boasts versatility and configurability for interactive digital signage applications, according to a news release.
The kiosk can accommodate single- or multitouch LCD monitors with the option to orient the display to portrait or landscape mode. Because the Milan can support larger monitors, it allows dual use of the monitor through the ability to split the screen for applications such as retail and wayfinding, the announcement said. Through collaborations with Elo and 3M, the Milan is available in 32-, 42-, 46- and 55-inch sizes.
The Milan kiosk can also be configured with additional hardware peripherals including thermal printers, a media player device, magnetic and smart card readers, proximity sensors, and QR and barcode scanners. The metal construction and powder-coat paint finish of the Milan also ensure that the kiosk can handle high volume usage with little maintenance.
According to Olea Kiosks CEO Frank Olea, the inspiration behind the design of the Milan was to meet the increasing demand from clients looking for large screen kiosks but whose needs ranged widely in terms of size and orientation.
"One day it just hit me to design a digital kiosk that could hold a monitor in landscape or portrait mode, regardless of the size," Olea said. "It just makes sense as a manufacturer to have one kiosk that's exceptionally configurable and versatile."
