The Samsung Kiosk Windows 10 IoT Enterprise – featuring a speaker, printer, scanner and payment solution – is the company’s first self-service display that isn’t based on its Tizen operating system.

Samsung launches retail kiosk that operates on Windows 10

Samsung is targeting the fragmented all-in-one kiosk market with a terminal that runs on Windows 10.

The Samsung Kiosk Windows 10 IoT Enterprise self-service display combines a touch display with a speaker, printer, scanner and payment solution. The kiosks, which will be available in Celeron i3, i5 and i7, can be managed remotely via the Samsung-managed MagicINFO service platform.

The self-service terminals, primarily designed for retail and quick-service restaurant operations, have previously been available only with Samsung’s Tizen operating system. But they struggled to penetrate the market, as the kiosks had to be supplemented with regional peripheral devices such as card readers and printers, which were not compatible with Tizen

Chris Mertens, Samsung’s vice-president of US sales, displays, said: “Consumer expectations are ever-evolving, which is prompting retailers of all sizes to dramatically transform the way they meet these growing demands. Delivering quality products is no longer enough – retailers must now entice and delight customers in ways that create meaningful connections and experiences.

“Through our strategic partnerships and the updates made to our display technology integrated with our MagicINFO software management system, Samsung is empowered to help retailers achieve this goal by embracing technology that captivates consumers through every point of contact, ensuring retailers’ viability in an increasingly competitive market.”

Samsung will be showcasing the Windows-based terminal at ISE, which takes place in Barcelona from 31 January-3 February.
