3D Rewards Center Kiosk in Retail Keeps Retailers In Touch With Mall Shopper

2016/04/14

Digital signage kiosks can be seen in many types of retail stores to provide shoppers with up-to-date information and the latest promotions. Kiosks with 3D advertising capabilities allow shoppers to print coupons of promotional offerings and they also gives brand marketers a chance to showcase their products.

Challenge

Our customer is currently the market leader in true 3D consumer advertising displays. Their new 3D holographic kiosk is equipped with two 17” displays; one projects videos in front of the screen without the need for special glasses and the other one is a 2D interactive touchscreen that provides consumers with quick access to promotions, coupons, or other retailer specific programs. Brand marketers can showcase their products via 3D advertising and engage viewers in new ways via an interactive touch screen interface. The 3D kiosks have been gradually launched in 1,000 retail locations in the New York and Los Angeles markets.

Solution

To meet the customer’s tight schedule and high performance requirements, Advantech provided their ultra slim signage player—DS-061, along with full design-in support to help them develop their new 3D holographic kiosks with reduced design costs, development time, and time-to-market.

Excellent Performance and Quality Increase for More Engaging Experience

DS-061 is powered by an Intel core i7 processor which provides great 3D graphics performance. Measuring a mere 19 mm thick, DS-061 is easily integrated into the kiosk enclosure. It supports simultaneous dual Full-HD 1080P and 3D graphic capability via DP and VGA interface, delivering a premium visual experience. Moreover, the 3D kiosk provides a crystal clear 17” touch screen interface and a printer for on demand coupons, rewards and promotions inside retail locations. DS- 061 supports multiple connections via USB, mini-PCIe, and RS232 to integrate additional valueadded modules such as printer, and touchscreen. It is wireless, so the customer can easily create marketing campaigns and remotely manage them in real time while launching customized content on the fly to deliver a richer brand experience using Intel® Retail Client Manager (Intel® RCM).

Full Design-in Support

During the development process, Advantech engineering support team were involved in the beginning of the design process and provided technical consulting and support, which saved engineering resources and enabled the customer to shorten their development cycle. Advantech local engineering support team were able to provide both a customized BIOS and image for each of the customer’s software needs which helped increase graphics performance and reduced the OS image footprint, as well as increasing storage space for the customer’s own software applications.
