Twin-Headed Kiosk Solution For National Galleries of Scotland

Aldermaston, Berkshire (PRWEB) January 21, 2009 -- Black Cat Displays has announced it has developed and supplied customised, portable, twin-headed kiosks for the National Galleries of Scotland, in Edinburgh. Designated Gemini, the touchscreen-based kiosks provide Gallery visitors with up-to-date information about the exhibits.

Developed and supplied in less than eight weeks, the special custom design brings the latest touchscreen display technology into elegant furniture matching the quality and style of the Gallery's rooms.

Tessa Quinn, National Galleries of Scotland, Head of New Media Services said, "The touchscreen terminals exceed our high expectations in design, manufacture and implementation. They have proved easy to maintain for staff, easy to use for visitors and given the IT Gallery software that they host a new lease of life."

The twin-headed displays provide visitors with an ergonomic and comfortable operating position from standing to sitting. In addition, with flexibility in mind, the Gallery is able to relocate the kiosks with the minimum of fuss by simply wheeling the units to the next available power point in any of the rooms.

Black Cat Displays' Gemini kiosks are for public use and provide an elegant, functional, yet robust terminal. It has a pair of 20.1 inch colour TFT displays mounted on a pedestal with a customised finish and silk screening to match the environment. Besides the standard sound from the integrated speakers, there are optional illuminated bezels, hearing loop amplifier capability, keyboard, trackerball, telephone handset and camera. The PC comes with network support and complete system power supply.
