Elo touch screen at Vegas POS
I f you've been to Las Vegas, chances are you've used one of Elo TouchSystems' touch screens at a casino or hotel. At the MGM Grand Casino and Resort, for instance, Elo touch screens are arrayed on POS terminals throughout - at the MGM's bars, restaurants, showrooms and even a theme park pool area.
Elo is a division of Tyco Electronics Corp. Its latest release is the 17-inch 1729L, designed specifically for POS applications. It features a 1280 by 1024 pixels per inch screen resolution for its LCD monitor touch screen.
Optional peripherals include: a mag stripe reader; vacuum fluorescent, rear-facing LED customer display; biometric fingerprint recognition device; and a speaker bar with or without a built-in single or omnidirectional barcode scanner. The peripherals are easily installed in the field.
The 1729L can come with additional features: AccuTouch Five-Wire Resistive Technology, IntelliTouch Surface-Wave Technology, and the choice of desktop, wall, or Video Electronics Standards Association mount.
The five-wire resistive technology is activated by the touch of a fingernail, gloved hand, credit card or any stylus against the touch screen. The screen is resistant to liquids, food and grease; it stands up to stubborn cleaning.
The actual screen is designed with IntelliTouch technology's pure glass for sharp image quality and durability. With its built-in compactness and flexibility, the 1729L is suited for gambling management, retail and hospitality POS systems, and loyalty kiosks.
According to Elo, the simplicity of the 1729L reduces employee training time and operator error.
The touch screen also streamlines other business practices by capturing and analyzing detailed transaction data; compiling counter, delivery and eat-in information; and handling timekeeping, labor scheduling, inventory control, management reporting, accounting, promotions and marketing.
The 1729L is distributed by BlueStar.
