What is a Digital Kiosk?
Digital signage kiosks (Or digital totems) are portrait, freestanding digital signage displays, part of the digital signage hardware family.
Digital kiosks can be purely aesthetic or can include touch screen integration, adding interaction, and a host of other features.
The popularity of digital kiosks can be attributed to the large amount of functionality and usability they offer in comparison to the other screen types.
How Do Digital Kiosks Work? Simple Operation.
Digital signage kiosks are ‘plug and play’ which means once connected to power and the internet, your content will automatically load in seconds.
All you need is a suitable power source and a strong internet connection. This can be WIFI or ethernet.
Our digital kiosks are powered by android media players which are hidden securely within your digital kiosk. This media player will pull content from your digital signage software and display it on your screens.
How Much Do Digital Kiosks Cost?
Many believe a digital kiosk will cost an arm and a leg. This is often because it’s a digital technology and often used by larger brands with deep pockets. However, thanks to falling prices, this couldn’t be further from the truth.
The price of a digital kiosk will ultimately depend on what kiosk you want. The price will vary by size, touch integration, and whether the kiosk is built for indoor or outdoor use.
