Peerless-AV Intros Next-Generation Smart City Kiosks
The next generation of Smart City Kiosks by Peerless-AV are now globally available; the new Single (KOP55XHB) and Dual-Sided (KOP55XHB2) models have been designed in response to customer feedback and demand.
Key upgrades facilitate a simplified installation for running power and data cabling while
offering a dedicated storage space for media components. The Dual-Sided model is brand new to the range, offering increased screen space and pportunities for revenue- generating digital advertising and wayfinding. According to the company, these Smart City Kiosks offer versatility in a wide range of verticals, including retail, government, transportation, and visitor attractions.
“Peerless-AV is pleased to announce that our popular, redesigned Smart City Kiosks are now available and we are already fulfilling orders globally,” said Nick Belcore, executive vice president of Peerless-AV. “The new dual-sided version is a fantastic addition to the range, enabling advertisers to tailor their digital signage content, and target and engage with a wider audience in outdoor urban environments, from airports and stadiums to bus shelters and shopping centers.”
The KOP55XHB models incorporate one 55-in. Xtreme High Bright Outdoor Display (XHB554) and the KOP55XHB2 models feature two 55-in. Xtremes, installed back-to-back. The two screens can play content independently or can operate from a duplicate feed. The Xtreme Displays offer full HD1080P resolution for a bright and crisp picture, even when placed in direct sunlight. Its fully-sealed, IP66 rated design prevents the ingress of foreign materials like water, dust, moisture, and insects—from entering the display, and has an operating temperature of -31°F to 140°F. The displays can be enhanced with an optional IR touch overlay (KIRP-XHB4), which can detect up to 10 touch points—whether finger, gloved hand, or stylus—all in a plug-and-play design.
Installation simplicity is factored into all design aspects of the Smart City Kiosks, according to Peerless-AV. A base cover allows power and data cabling to run upwards from the bottom center, and secure doors allow quick access for maintenance purposes. An IP55 rated media cabinet provides a spacious, enclosed storage area for AV components and integrated fans for active cooling.
The Smart City Kiosk is wind tested up to 135 mph and its stainless steel and aluminum body, combined with an outdoor rated paint finish, is corrosion resistant.
The KOP55XHB and KOP55XHB2 models are now available to order in black or silver and with or without 4-in., 100 watt, waterproof speakers.
The new Smart City Kiosks by Peerless-AV will be on display at InfoComm 2023 in Booth 1329.
