Bretford Introduces New Flat Panel Digital Kiosks

Bretford, the leading supplier of high-quality technology and media furniture that improves how people work and learn, today introduced two new Flat Panel Digital Kiosks designed to provide secure network data access or general information to people in virtually any public location. The FPDK Series will debut next month in the Bretford booth (#2013) at InfoComm International, June 19-21 in Anaheim, Calif.

“With today‘s technology, we are used to having instant access to data and information wherever we are,” explains Jim Fisher, product manager, Bretford. “The Flat Panel Digital Kiosks serve two very different types of users. The FDPK01 is ideal for information gathering and general navigation in public spaces.” According to Fisher, this model is perfect in a hotel lobby or business center so a guest can check a meeting location or flight information. Another key application is a mall for patrons to find information about a specific store or restaurant. “In these scenarios, the kiosks help save a significant amount of time by allowing the user to quickly obtain specific information.”

The FPDK02 has a CPU holder for applications that require data to be accessed through a PC. It is designed primarily for users within a facility who need information within the network when not at their usual workstation. “Doctors and nurses at hospitals, for example, may need critical access to a patient record. The kiosks allow them to directly input data into a secure system without concerns about a paper trail.” Fisher added that students and instructors in schools or libraries and employees in a corporate or other business environment could also benefit from this model.

Intelligently Designed Flat Panel Digital Kiosks

The new Flat Panel Digital Kiosks feature a unique keyboard tray that folds up and out of the way when not in use for safety and space-savings. Both of the kiosks allow easy access to data by attaching directly to the wall at walk-up height but can also be mounted lower on the wall for wheelchair access. Additionally, the monitor and keyboard tray both mount independently on the track, which allows users to easily adjust the monitor and keyboard for comfort and ease of use.

The FPDK01 includes a 31.5in. aluminum alloy wall track, while the FPDT02 includes two 31.5in. wall tracks – one to support the CPU holder (measuring 63in. in total height). Both kiosks include mounts that are VESA 75mm and 100mm compatible for use with essentially any 15-19in. flat panel monitor. Other user convenience features include an expandable tray for various keyboard sizes with an integrated, ergonomic wrist rest and mouse pad. As well, the kiosks offer left- or right-handed mouse capability to accommodate all users.

Availability, Pricing, and Warranty

Bretford‘s new FPDK Series is currently available for order through Bretford‘s nationwide network of distributors and resellers. Both models will begin shipping in Q2 2007 at the following list prices: $520.00 (FPDK01) and $878.00 (FPDK02). The new kiosks come with Bretford‘s industry-leading 12-year standard parts and labor warranty to ensure peace-of-mind.
