Showcase is the software half of a complete hardware-software solution for iPad owners seeking all the benefits of a secure interactive kiosk.
Sunnyvale, CA (PRWEB) December 18, 2012
IPEVO, Inc., a maker and designer of technology products for educators and businesspeople, has announced that their free Showcase application is now available for the iPad via the Apple App Store. Designed for interactive kiosks and other public displays of the iPad, Showcase restricts touchscreen operations and features a number of display options to control how users interact with the iPad.
Showcase was created along with IPEVO's Perch Security Stand as part of a complete solution for educators, shop owners, gallery owners, and other businesspeople in need of a secure, customizable, and interactive kiosk for public display. The Perch Security Stand — available in three sizes — mounts the iPad in both landscape and portrait orientations. Two locks on the stand's security holder prevent the mounted iPad from being removed, discouraging theft and preventing accidental damage. An optional home button lock prevents the home button from being pressed. As the final element, Showcase further fine-tunes the user experience.
When Showcase is active, onscreen content can be controlled in a number of ways, and touchscreen interactions can either be limited or prevented entirely. The home page can be customized, and an auto-return feature makes sure the iPad reverts to the same home page for the next user. Showcase also allows for the creation of a navigation shortcuts toolbar so that users may quickly switch between different predetermined content pages. Additional display options include full screen mode and disabling of the URL field. A four-digit programmable PIN allows the owner to reconfigure Showcase and access other apps.
"Showcase is the software half of a complete hardware-software solution for iPad owners seeking all the benefits of a secure interactive kiosk," said Royce Hong, CEO and big head of design of IPEVO. "The iPad has created tremendous opportunity for educational institutions and businesses to engage students, visitors, and clients. The Perch Security Stand and Showcase deliver a secure and highly customized way to control and optimize that interaction."
IPEVO Showcase is now available at no cost through Apple's App Store. The Perch Security Stand — L-Type, M-Type, and S-Type — is available through IPEVO's Online Store at http://www.ipevo.com.
