Aberdeen, NC – January 30, 2020 – Meridian, an industry leading manufacturer of indoor and outdoor kiosks, interactive digital signage, and self-service software recently unveiled their newest indoor kiosk series—the Evolution.
The latest addition to Meridian’s already robust line of indoor kiosks was first released at the National Retail Federation’s 2020 ‘Big Show’ in New York City. Show attendees were able to see and interact with the kiosk first-hand.
Named to reflect the nature of the kiosk hardware itself, the Evolution Series features an interchangeable head unit that can be configured three different ways—as a countertop, freestanding, or wall mounted unit.
“The Evolution Series kiosks were designed for use in all spaces,” said Meridian’s Industrial Designer, Dominic Atibil. “The modular aspect of the head unit makes the solution suitable for retail, food service, and a variety of other environments.”
Quick-serve restaurants are one of the key markets in which Meridian hopes to implement the Evolution Series. “A single quick serve restaurant could install all three options to meet ADA requirements, or simply to fit the space they have,” said Atibil. “The smooth outer radius, inspired by mobile phones, gives the Evolution a familiar form to customers, while the overhanging front bezel gives the unit a slimmer appearance.”
While the Evolution Series is designed to incorporate numerous different components, including screen sizes ranging from 22–32 inches, an i5 or i7 computer, scanner, thermal printer, and payment terminal, it also features a future-proof design that allows for a great deal of flexibility among those components. “With a removable front plate, the Evolution can be easily adapted to integrate with the latest point of sale components as needed,” said Atibil.
A fully integrated manufacturer, Meridian designs, engineers, fabricates, assembles, deploys, and supports self-service solutions from their 13-acre headquarters in North Carolina.
