Smart City Kiosk has been designed for wayfinding, advertising and entertainment
Designed to provide new opportunities in the outdoor AV market, Smart City Kiosk from Peerless-AV consists of four models: 49 inches (KOP2549-XHB-EUK) or 55 inches (KOP2555-XHB-EUK) with the manufacturer’s Xtreme High Bright Outdoor Display included, or as a kiosk enclosure only, designed for 46-inch (KOP2546-OHF-EUK) or 55-inch (KOP2555-OHF-EUK) Samsung OHF Displays. The solution is described as ideal for sharing corporate or community information, travel and weather details, as well as wayfinding, advertising and entertainment.
The KOP2549-XHB-EUK and KOP2555-XHB-EUK models are rated IP68 for temperatures ranging from –35°C to 60°C. The sealed display is said to eliminate the need for air conditioning or fans for cooling. Steel mesh on the rear panel assists Xtreme High Bright Outdoor Displays with passive cooling and allows Samsung OHF Displays to exhaust hot air and intake cool air. Interactivity can be added to all four models with an optional plug-and-play, 10-point IR touch overlay, also tested to IP65 standards to protect against water and dust.
Staying outdoors, Xtreme High Bright has an IP68 rating and a patented Dynamic Thermal Transfer System. The display is described as maintenance-free with no fans, vents or filters to let in water, dust, moisture and insects. It also has an operating temperature range of –35°C to 60°C. The IK10-rated, anti-reflective, impact-resistant safety glass reportedly protects against vandalism and debris, while the display is optically bonded to increase the perceived contrast ratio and cut down on glare.
Finally, a floor- and ceiling-mount solution for the Samsung OMN-D series has been announced. The mount supports both 46-inch and 55-inch Samsung back-to-back display models and is described as ideal for high-impact, in-window retail and commercial applications. Optional custom colour trims can be added to match branding or application settings.
