Digital Photo Kiosks are primarily self-servicekiosks designed with a premium on ease-of-use.The kiosk manufacturers are constantly upgradingthe system side with better components andtechnology. This progress includes enabling highspeed USB digital media readers and better UI experience. Vendors like SCM also ensure that thelatest media formats and specifications arecomplied with in these readers.In the last couple of years, with increased usage of digital photo kiosks, the focus in the industry has shifted to serviceability. Customers have beenimplementing different methods to prevent longdown time of the kiosk. While high traffic areasimplement multiple kiosks, this is not always aneffective solution due to space and costconstraints. Modular digital media readers enableservicing of components without any actualdowntime. The defective media slots can be hotswapped with spare functional ones by the storemanager itself. Lesser downtime means continuedrevenue.The focus is equally divided between what ishappening within the kiosk to what is happening infront of it. – specifically, the increasing capacity of camera cards.
To quote a kiosk maker – “the new media today have more capacity than the hard disks in our kiosks!”
