San Jose, 17 August 2015 – The first commercial grade multi-touch device on the market today, AOPEN’s powerful, ultra-slim Chromebase Commercial is highly versatile, tamperproof and requires zero maintenance; making it ideal for system integration in POS devices or kiosks.
The Chromebase Commercial is a solid-state device designed to be extremely robust and secure, making it ideal for interactive public display in high traffic environments (i.e. as a digital signage, POS or kiosk system). The Chromebase Commercial can be mounted in portrait or landscape and is currently available in a 22” format with a 19” format to follow after.
The multi-touch panel features a waterproof toughened glass front, tamperproof cable and mounting, and its fanless design keeps dust out. It is also shock and vibration resistant. Together with Chrome OS, it ensures for a highly diverse system that can display content via apps by accessing the Cloud.
"The Chromebase Commercial is a versatile system built in a tamperproof rugged design for 24-7 use. It puts a full commercial grade device into the hands of retailers for use in demanding consumer environments," Stephen Borg, Global Director of Strategy & Marketing at AOPEN, says.
"Despite being an industrial grade device, the Chromebase Commercial has also been designed with the sleek elegance of an end-user device. It’s only 30mm thick despite its toughened glass front and fits easily into a presentation display or kiosk in a discreet and visually appealing way. At AOPEN we encourage integrators to create innovative mounting solutions and enclosures to optimise the display and the use of our devices."
The Chromebase Commercial has been designed to lower total cost of ownership. It has automatic system updates to keep its system secure as well as Zero Touch Point Manageability via the Cloud using Chrome Device Management, both of which reduce the costs of IT support and maintenance. As with all AOPEN devices, there is long product life cycle support and systems are built with low power consumption to keep costs at a minimum.
For connecting other devices such as POS peripherals and authentication devices (i.e. Biometrics), the Chromebase Commercial has commercial ports, ruling out the need for multiple power cables.
All Commercial Chrome products come with a yearly or perpetual Chrome Device Management license option. Chrome device management allows administrators to manage their organization's Chrome devices from a single place. Integrators can also use the signage app of their preference available via the Chrome web store to control what’s on the screen.
Customers can also decide on a three-year or five-year warranty on products. The Chromebase Commercial is priced at USD$1099 excluding tax. Products are available for pre-order now in the US and will be ready to ship this quarter to Australia, Europe and other selected regions.
