Interactive Feature for Multi-screens from Caltron

A kiosk or dynamic signage is only effective if it can keep a viewer or user’s attention. Many kiosk designs now call for multiple displays to help catch and maintain the user’s attention. Showing an Ad using 2 or more displays creates a bigger impact. With the use of Caltron ‘s MP-RB1080 controller board, up to 8 different videos can be activated by the client or end user. Using Caltron’s MP-1080A stand alone player and the MP-RB1080 controller board, the client or user now has more control on what needs to be seen. With the push of a button, the user can go to the next ad or video. This interactive feature makes the Kiosk more informational.

Caltron’s MP-1080A full HD stand alone player is simple to use. Contents are played via a CF card or USB Flash drive. Adding Caltron’s MP-RB1080 at a nominal cost, gives the added feature of interactive video where the user selects the information or image to be viewed. The MP-RB1080 controller board is flexible in that the actuation interface can be done through the ribbon connector or hard wiring. Set up is simple. The MP-1080A is a plug and play unit. The MP-RB1080 interfaces with the player through the RJ45 input. Then just power on and the whole system is ready to go.

Interactive features in Kiosks are becoming more important in airports, shopping malls, hotel lobbies and any other public venues. With multi-screen kiosks giving more impact on ads and any public information, Caltron offers the solution for you to design and build the Kiosk system that has both the multi-screen impact and interactive feature.
