The kiosk software “FrontFace for Touch Kiosks” by mirabyte helps users to create professional multimedia touch screen applications and presentation systems for use in museums and exhibitions easily, quickly and inexpensively
(Hamm, 01.12.2015) Multimedia exhibits and info terminals today are practically standard items in museums and exhibitions for conveying knowledge and information in an up-to-date and visitor-oriented fashion. And yet their implementation with appropriate touch screen applications is often connected to a great deal of trouble and high costs for the museum as it not least requires extensive technical knowledge and programming skills that frequently are offered by specialized service providers. Thus particularly smaller museums and galleries with very limited budget relinquish this form of multimedia presentation, resulting in considerable loss of attractiveness – not only with younger visitors!
mirabyte software is an ISV (independent software vendor) that specializes in digital signage and kiosk software. Its standard software “FrontFace for Touch Kiosks” offers a proven software solution that allows users to easily create multimedia experiences. The software is designed to enable users without any programming knowledge to create attractive touch screen interfaces and menus for visitor use with minimal effort. Virtually anything can be used as content without further adaptation, from videos, photos and images to PDF files and even Websites! This way, documents and media can be used immediately without the time-consuming task of converting or preparing. FrontFace’s unique Print2Screen function even allows users to take over content from any Windows application that supports printing with just one click!
FrontFace also offers maximum flexibility with regards to hardware since the software can be run on every Windows-operated system and supports any screen resolution as well as nearly all touch screen hardware (including tablets). Thus even extremely inexpensive systems can be implemented with widely available standard components. And there is no need for users to worry about the security of the system during use: FrontFace automatically protects the underlying Windows operating system against manipulation and damage with the integrated FrontFace Lockdown Tool.
FrontFace also offers a solid basis for complex applications and installations: Additional functions such as plug-ins can be added easily. Besides numerous, immediately available plug-ins such as a quiz module or a live TV interface, plug-ins can also be developed individually. Furthermore, external systems such as lighting control, audio systems and even sensors can be integrated without difficulty; this way, models and exhibits can be incorporated to create a self-contained world of experience.
Thanks to multi-screen support, even external flat screens and projectors can easily be integrated, allowing the realization of comfortable multimedia presentation systems, also for larger visitor groups.
“FrontFace for Touch Kiosks” is available for download as a fully functional trial version on the mirabyte Website free of charge. The full version can be purchased at a cost of EUR 499.95 (plus VAT) as a permanent license with temporally unlimited use and no recurring costs. This price also includes free updates and support for one year.
