New PowerTouch Units Sleek, Eco-Friendly!
It was tapped for a White House exhibit at the Museum of Science and Industry in Chicago. Now, it can be seen in Bingo halls across the continent – or wherever Video King’s PowerTouch™ systems can be found.
It is none other than Video King’s all-in-one, touch-screen, desktop PC – complete with eco-friendly operation and a sleek, almost stealth-like design.
Using 80 percent less energy than traditional desktop PCs – yet never consuming more than 50 watts of power – these new units will serve as the player terminals for PowerTouch, among the only fully integrated electronic Bingo system known throughout the world.
Capable of playing Video King’s entire suite of games, PowerTouch is a networked, PC-based system, fully scalable for installations in Bingo halls, both large and small.
In fact, with its seamless balance of style and function – from its semi-transparent outer frame to its innovative touch technology – these dual core, all-in-one PCs have achieved the U.S. Energy Star certification, a government-backed program helping businesses and individuals protect the environment through superior energy efficiency, and have adhered to the European Union’s new environmental directive, that took effect last year.
In addition, these ultra-thin computers, (equipped with a 250 GB hard drive, 4 USB ports, 4-in-1 card reader, 1.3 mega-pixel camera with built-in mic) utilize coating material, which is free from harmful substances and packaging material, which is 80 percent recyclable.
“It takes a lot to make a great, electronic Bingo product, including great software, great sales, installation and support, and finally great hardware,” said Dan Free, CTO/Vice President of Electronics for Video King.
“This latest, all-in-one PC form factor is perfect for use as a PowerTouch player terminal.
It offers the right combination of ease of use, speed, power, durability, availability, and price to be a real winner for both Video King and our customers,” he said.
The all-in-one option is just another example of how Video King strives to bring its customers the technological best.
“The adoption of touch-screen products by the consumer market has now made units like this one, readily available from high volume manufacturers, whereas only a few years ago, the choices of a one- piece PC, with or without a touch screen, was very limited and considered somewhat of a specialty PC purchase,” Free said.
Ed Dwornicki, Sales Manager for Video King, readily agreed.
“Not only are these PCs visually appealing, with an amazingly crisp 18.5-inch, wide-screen LCD, which tilts for viewer comfort, but a virtual space-saver.
“Its slim-line, all-in-one design negates the need for our customers to purchase specialized tables to house a separate CPU, since it’s self-contained,” he said.
As with previous units, the new PCs will fully integrate with Video King’s PowerPlay™ Bingo consoles (a Bingo blower with the multimedia features of a theater entertainment system), the Lil’ Champ™ and SuperChamp™ handsets and the Champion II™ and TAB-e,™ our latest gaming tablets, to create the ultimate gaming experience.
Video King’s new, eco-friendly, PowerTouch player terminals incorporate all the computer's functions into an elegant casing.
What’s more, the processor has full operating capabilities, yielding outstanding product performance.
