Instruments & Equipment Co. is pleased to announce the release of their unique, hand-crafted wooden Shadow kiosk enclosure for self-service applications. The Shadow is ideal for high-end self-service applications and transactional purposes that require a more fashionable and aesthetically pleasing look, as opposed to the modern and sleek look of metal. It is configurable with various peripherals including infrared touch screen, keyboard, barcode scanner, printer, mag stripe reader and speakers. The 100% maple exterior can be customized with a choice of stain, giving the Shadow a warm and natural appearance.

Mr. Joseph Trobert, President of Instruments & Equipment Co. and designer of the Shadow kiosk enclosure, has begun producing the Shadow kiosk line, but they are currently a limited-edition. "I wanted to develop a kiosk that would look better than any other kiosk enclosure available within the marketplace because wood can create a soft appearance and attract even the most reluctant customers who walk by. Very few kiosks are offered in a wood enclosure and I think the new addition of the Shadow Kiosk meets the needs of customers looking for a more natural and upscale look that softens the appearance of the technology," he said.

In addition to the standard features offered in the artfully crafted wooden enclosure, I&E has partnered with IBM and integrated their Anyplace Kiosk into the Shadow enclosure. This partnership between I&E and IBM has created a new synergy that will begin to shape the kiosk marketplace.

Instruments & Equipment Co. offers a few key factors to consider when selecting a kiosk, including selecting peripherals, choosing between available colors and materials, distinguishing which kiosk line meets the customers needs, and incorporating available kiosk software. Instruments & Equipment Co. developed and created Web Guardian which is an economical software package that is a must-have for every kiosk connected to the internet. Web Guardian replaces the existing browser such as Internet Explorer, Netscape, etc., and restricts the user's ability to "surf" outside of the intended area. Web Guardian is like a good padlock for any kiosk and is simple yet secure.
