GDS's High Brightness Displays to 'LIGHT UP' the Kiosk Market
Global Display Solutions (GDS), the world leader in the design and manufacture of industrial display solutions is set to make an impact on the kiosk market with its 'first to market' commercially viable high brightness display, the Mitra.
With revenue in the interactive multimedia kiosks (IMK's) market estimated to reach an estimated $722.7 million by 2007, kiosk manufacturers are being forced to develop kiosks that use the most advanced technology but at competitive prices if they are to compete in this ambitious marketplace. With this in mind, GDS has launched its new competitively priced high brightness Mitra which deploys the latest in display technology. The Mitra provides huge opportunities for kiosk manufacturers as it can easily be read in all lighting conditions, including high ambient light, direct sunlight and at night, which makes it perfect for use in outdoor kiosks.
Further, when used indoors, the Mitra display is so bright that it instantly attracts the attention of passers-by, thereby proving an effective self-marketing tool at no extra cost!
GDS spent 4 years and over $1 million researching its Mitra range of high brightness displays. To overcome the biggest hurdle, which was heat output, GDS developed a thermal management system, which enables the display screen to be entirely visible in any light without damage to the LCD panel. The Mitra offers:
- Superb uniformity, low power and high brightness, making it suitable for use in all areas where high ambient light precludes the use of traditional display technologies.
- Perfect viewing no matter what the conditions. Used in conjunction with the GDS GI2000 inverter range, the Mitra panel can be dimmed beyond a 500:1 ratio.
- Normal operation of the display in temperatures up to 55°c, thanks to the thermal management system.
GDS is a world-leading manufacturer of industrial display solutions for a number of industries worldwide including kiosk, banking, marine, process and transport. For further information on GDS's Mitra and other displays in its range, please call +44 (0) 1274 230150, visit www.gds.com or email
