Internet MiniKiosk Development Kit Debuts

Radiant Systems, Inc. today announced the premiere release of its Internet MiniKiosk Development Kit (MDK).

The package offers a host of Microsoft ActiveX controls that enable intuitive, touch-screen navigation of Web sites, giving any user the ability to surf the World Wide Web without a keyboard or mouse.

Designed specifically to expand the presence of Web sites to the non- Internet using public, Internet MDK consists of Radiant Systems-developed ActiveX controls (called the KDT or Kiosk Development Tools), an Internet MiniKiosk, a hands-on training program and sample consumer-oriented Web sites.

The Internet Mini Kiosk component, which is based on Radiant Systems' MediaClient PC, features a small footprint and an industry-hardened kiosk enclosure that helps minimize downtime of deployed Web sites. This solution addresses multiple issues that plague the kiosk industry, which tends to rely on desktop grade off-the-shelf hardware.

Internet MDK provides a graphical, Web-browsing shell that incorporates touch screen controls to industry standard navigation commands, including frames navigation. It also provides access and security features, allowing developers to set kiosk access controls.
