Kiosks (both static and interactive) are an effective place to use directed sound -- as a part of the move to reduce employees and allow customers the ease of self-checkout from grocery stores to fast food outlets. Computerized kiosks also offer helpful product information to consumers. Add HyperSound to the mix and your marketing information is punctuated to the nth degree.
Using directed sound at kiosks and point-of-sale (POS) terminals provides many marketing and informational advantages:
Outside the shopping environment, interactive kiosks and related computer terminals power applications for communication, commerce, entertainment, and education.
According to ABI Research, the number of interactive kiosks deployed globally will rise from 1.6 million in 2011 to nearly 3 million in 2016. Our customers are expected to be leading kiosk and POS equipment manufacturers integrating HyperSound directed sound into devices to differentiate them in the marketplace. We have sold and expect to continue to offer products for aftermarket installation in existing kiosk installations wishing to add directed audio.
