Self-Service Gets Even Better


Diebold, Inc.

Diebold has introduced its latest family of ATMs, the Opteva collection. Diebold said it conducted extensive research in 18 countries in order to develop the products, which offer advanced features and flexibility.

The Opteva family of ATMs includes the Opteva 760, an advanced function, through-the-wall, walk-up ATM; the Opteva 720, an advanced function, lobby ATM; the Opteva 560, a through-the-wall, walk-up cash dispenser; and the Opteva 520, a lobby cash dispenser.

The ATMs were designed with an open platform so financial institutions can customize Diebold's solutions in order to fit their own needs. Diebold built the Optevas with USB 2.0 architecture, which allows the machines to easily integrate with future technologies and make faster transactions through high-speed communications with ATM peripherals. In addition, each machine operates on an Intel Pentium 4 processor.

Some of the features of the Opteva include a five-cassette dispenser that distributes high volumes of currency. Most ATMs come with four cassettes. The fifth cassette can dispense stamps, coupons, tickets or other items to increase revenue without decreasing cash-dispensing capacity. Diebold says the Optevas have the first two-color receipt printer with high-resolution printer capabilities for graphics.

Consumers will like it, too. The ATMs come with a standard 15.1-inch flat panel LCD screen for easy viewing, and sunlight viewable and touch-screen options are available. The ATMs can accept check and cash deposits without envelopes and have bulk-note acceptors for crediting up to 100 notes at a time.

In order to manage the ATM networks, Diebold also offers remote maintenance, professional services, managed services and outsourcing for the Opteva ATMs.
