Pyramid Computer’s multi-touch POS systems introduce new standard for extension modules

Quick Mounting System (QMS) allows polytouch® extension modules to be easily exchanged to expand functionality and adapt to new requirements in-store

Freiburg, Germany, 12 November 2012 - Pyramid Computer, specialist manufacturer of custom IT systems, has expanded its portfolio of multi-touch point-of-sale kiosks with the introduction of 22-inch and 32-inch models featuring a new standard for extending their functionality. The patent pending Quick Mounting System (QMS) provides a simple way to add an 80x80 mm POS thermal printer, barcode scanner, RFID HF near-field receiver, camera, magnetic card reader and Chip & PIN payment device, simply by clipping modules either side of the display. With polytouch QMS, retailers can readily stay on a par with the latest standards and processes, such as cashless transactions.

New polytouch 22000 POS and 32000 POS models complement Pyramid’s popular polytouch 22 and 32 Classic terminals. These all-in-one systems represent innovative kiosk solutions that connect to the web to facilitate multi-channel strategies such as cross-selling, product promotion applications and social network integration. The e-commerce kiosks offer a stylish design, are easy to use, efficient and highly interactive.

All polytouch devices incorporate state-of-the-art capacitive touch technology, which supports simultaneous touches – up to 10 for polytouch 32 and 32000 POS and up to 20 for polytouch 22 and 22000 POS – at an ultra-fast 10 millisecond response time while rejecting palms, allowing developers to create a natural, intuitive and responsive user experience.

Featuring Intel® Core™ i7-3770S processors as standard running at up to 3.9GHz in Turbo mode, Intel HD4000 graphics on chip, 4GB DDR-3 PC1600 memory and a 120GB Solid State Drive, the polytouch 22000 POS terminals deliver full HD (1920 x 1080) resolution. The 32-inch model 32000 has an Intel Core i7-2600S with Intel HD2000 graphics on chip, 4GB of DDR-3 PC1333 memory and a 120GB Solid State Drive. AMD Fire Pro graphics is optionally available for the 32000.

Both terminals provide 1GB/s LAN connectivity with optional 300Mb/s wireless LAN and Bluetooth interfaces. Intel Active Management technology is built into the hardware, enabling remote management, even when the terminal is down. Available operating systems include Windows 7 (32/64 Bit), Windows 8 (32/64 Bit), and Ubuntu Linux.

Pricing for the new polytouch POS terminals will be announced in a new pricelist scheduled for publication during November 2012. This will include all Pyramid’s systems, extension modules, accessories, warranty and services.
