Comark has announced they will be featuring the rugged, reliable and award winning TK470, 47” interactive transit kiosk at this year’s APTA Expo (Public Transportation’s Premier Showcase) at the George R. Brown Convention Center in Houston, TX from October 13th through the 15th (Booth # 5600)
The TK470 kiosk is presently in use in the successful New York MTA “On The Go” program, which was honored in collaboration with NYC based Control Group with the prestigious Digital Screenmedia Association 2014 Award of Excellence for “Best Travel/Hospitality Self-Service Interactive Kiosk”. The rugged user friendly On The Go Travel Station kiosks, was also previously awarded “Outstanding Project of the Year for Advanced Traveler Information Systems” by Intelligent Transportation Society of New York (ITS-NY).
Comark specifically engineered the TK470 Kiosk for the harsh public transportation environment which includes installation in unmonitored public areas, brake dust, high temperatures and heavy 24/7 use. There are currently over 100 kiosks installed and in use in the New York City subway system, many directly on train platforms. Key attributes include a brilliant 47” display with multi-touch and gesture touch screen, rugged stainless steel construction, built in wide temperature computer, health monitoring, and vandalism detection. The kiosks are designed for ease of installation and service.
In addition Comark will also introduce the new MK470 outdoor kiosk which is specifically designed and engineered to be deployed in areas such as parking lots, malls, or entrances to transit stations where direct sunlight, rain or snow are considerations. The MK470 is sealed against the elements and uses a high bright display to provide readability in daylight or sunlight conditions. It includes a unique environmental thermal management system which eliminates the need for expensive and inefficient air conditioning systems.
