A kiosk? What for?

Whatever the end user (commercial, technician, customer within a point of sale or visitor in a public place ...) the kiosk installed on devices allows you to create a secured environment. This environment ensures a controlled use of authorized applications.

 

What is a centralized kiosk?

A centralized kiosk allows the remote management, installation and updating of installed kiosks via a server, administrators configure kiosks by selecting items (applications, files, documents, websites ...) they wish to make available to users, and then deploy the specific configuration to their remote devices.

 

Thus, administrators ensure that the system settings remain inaccessible and that the use of the terminal is strictly limited to its vocation (in store tablets, touch-screen kiosks/totems in public places, professional use of tablets / PCs ...).

MediaContact, which already managed kiosks on Android devices, now provides with the 5.8 version, the ability to remotely manage kiosks running on Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 devices, touch screen or not. The kiosk can automatically be launched at the start of each device (tablet / PC), restricting access to selected traditional applications or Modern UI applications. Windows kiosk also offers an integrated private web browser, allowing the administrator to:

  • Lock/Hide the address bar

  • Lock full screen mode

  • Hide prohibited page notifications

  • Whitelist/Blacklist URLS
     

"This new version MediaContact for Windows and its kiosk meet the growing demands of our clients, particularly retailers, who want to use in store tablets to provide information and promote products in their stores" says Yves Clisson, President of Telelogos
