REDMOND, Wash.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov. 10, 1997--EMF Corporation, the premier provider of commercial-quality customer access kiosks, has launched the IntegraElite, the first comprehensive, fully integrated pedestal kiosk-bringing greater marketing opportunities than ever before to a wide range of industries.

The sleek profile, small foot print interactive kiosk has been completely designed, engineered and integrated for immediate use, and is especially desirable in areas where space is a premium. It houses a full PC, providing exceptional flexibility and options to meet the needs of the most demanding multimedia applications from trade show presentations and catalog ordering to electronic commerce and public Internet access. The IntegraElite is offered at a special introductory price for units shipped by December 31, 1997.

The stylized, eye-catching IntegraElite supports information and transaction-based applications in diverse markets such as retail, finance, communications, transportation, health care, hospitality and entertainment. It is also an ideal way to promote products and services at trade shows, to provide Internet access to catalogs and product and services offerings, and for use in lobbies and lunchrooms to access a company's intranet for news, directories and benefit plans.

Using only the highest quality components, EMF has designed, engineered and manufactured the IntegraElite from the ground up, eliminating the hassles commonly experienced with other kiosks where program managers have had to shop around for each element to create a complete solution and worry about how all the components, software and ongoing support will work together. The IntegraElite is built with a full-size Pentium computer running Microsoft Windows 95, a bright, wide-view 12" LCD touch display, a stereo sound system, CD player and sound card. With full PC functionality, it can use any standard PCI or ISA card. Standard options include a credit card reader, modem, network card(s), receipt and voucher printer, uninterrupted power supply and Windows NT. EMF can also accommodate custom options for unique customer needs.

The IntegraElite's breakthrough design and sophisticated engineering make it the ideal solution for both pilot programs and full-scale rollouts. "We listened to our customers who said they wanted a bullet-proof, small foot print, integrated kiosk with full PC and multimedia capabilities," said Linda D'Angelo, EMF's new vice President, sales and marketing. "The IntegraElite is the kiosk of choice for those who demand a technically advanced, superior- quality product that's ready to use now."

Following market research studies, IntegraElite's professional, contemporary look was selected to fit in with a wide variety of architectural and interior design styles. The enclosure features an attractive textured finish that can be tailored with customers' colors, graphics and logos. The kiosk has easy rear access for paper loading and servicing. It has been designed to meet rigid quality and safety standards including UL, C-UL, FCC and ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act).

Pricing and availability

The IntegraElite is available at an introductory list price of $6,500 for kiosks shipped by December 31, 1997. The regular list price is $6,995. The company also offers volume discounts and leasing. EMF stands behind its products with a one-year warranty and options for extended warranties and on- site service. For further details on the IntegraElite, contact EMF at 800/285- 3630.
