Radiant Systems, Inc. Introduces New Internet MiniKiosk
Development Kit (MDK)
(Business Wire; 04/22/98)
Radiant Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: RADS), a leading provider of integrated
technology solutions to retailers worldwide, announces the premiere release of
its Internet MDK (MiniKiosk Development Kit).
The package offers a host of Microsoft ActiveX controls that enable
intuitive, touch-screen navigation of web sites, giving any user the ability to
surf the World Wide Web without a keyboard or mouse.
Designed specifically to expand the presence of web sites to the non-
Internet using public, Internet MDK consists of Radiant Systems-developed
ActiveX controls (called the KDT or, Kiosk Development Tools), an Internet
MiniKiosk, a hands on training program and sample consumer-oriented internet
The Internet Mini Kiosk component (based on Radiant Systems' MediaClient
PC) features a small footprint and an industry-hardened kiosk enclosure that
helps minimize downtime of deployed web sites. This solution addresses
multiple issues that plague the kiosk industry, which tends to rely on desktop
grade, off-the-shelf hardware.
Tim List, Director of Radiant Digital Retail, says, "We believe that web
developers and kiosk developers will embrace the Internet MDK, because it's a
simple tool that allows them to capitalize on the ease of developing touch
screen web site applications with any HTML environment. Minutes after opening
the box, someone with an e-commerce web site can deploy that site in a public
access kiosk. Internet MDK delivers on the Radiant Systems tradition of
providing high value, highly flexible, visionary products."
Vantage Point Director of New Media, Phil Quist, says, "We believe that the
Internet MDK will be the fastest way for us to deliver kiosk applications for
our clients. The navigation features found available through the KDT are just
fantastic; these are quite intelligent solutions to the problems of putting web-
based applications in the public domain."
Internet MDK provides a graphical, web-browsing shell that incorporates
touch screen controls to industry standard navigation commands, including
frames navigation while also providing access and security features, allowing
developers to set kiosk access controls. Detailed information about the
Internet MDK, and Radiant Digital Retail can be reached by calling 800-229-0991
