When speaking with potential customers and hirers of our range of touchscreens, we often get into a conversation explaining the difference between a Touchscreen Monitor, Kiosk and All In One PC.
A touchscreen monitor (sometimes referred to as a TV by customers) is just a screen with a touchscreen capability. It has no computer built in and will need to be connected to a laptop of a computer / pc to work. A monitor can be of many sizes from the small to the very big – say 17 inches through to 100 inches is not uncommon. A Touchscreen Monitor can be placed and presented on a trolley or wall mounted. One of the things to consider with a monitor is how tidy will it all look? The PC / Laptop / Computer will have trailing leads to the monitor.
The untidiness of touchscreen monitors has led to the design of Touchscreen Kiosks and all in One PCs.
A touchscreen kiosk is a cabinet or stand that has everything built into it – you do not connect anything else. The cabinet will contain the Touchscreen and the Computer. It all looks tidy and can be stood alone and left for potential clients and customers to use all by themselves. Touchscreen kiosks come in all shapes and sizes. Touchscreen Kiosks can also very often be branded up as a further way of promoting your goods and services.
An All in One Touchscreen Monitor looks just like a monitor – or it may be a little deeper – but this will have a built in computer. The computer sits within the body of the screen and the touchscreen can then make use of the computer (usually a windows based pc or Android Operating System) . However, just like a Monitor this will have to be mounted on a wall or a trolley. it does not have a built in stand like a kiosk. You may ask why would you ever hire a Touchscreen Monitor that does not have the PC built in? The answer to this is that very often clients prefer to use their own computers all loaded with their own software and programs – than the one offered within an all in one pc. Aldo, whilst the all in one touchscreen monitors have pretty good spec computers in them – there are occasions when clients of ours want a much more powerful pc to show their software which may have greater demands.
Hope this helps when it comes to deciding whether a Touchscreen Kiosk or a Touchscreen Monitor or an All In One Touchscreen Monitor best suits your hire and exhibition requirements.
