The Firebird Enterprise Kiosk is an all-in-one Android computer with integrated barcode scanning. Firebird’s compact design is ideal for situations where a small footprint is desired. The smaller build of this kiosk gives users the flexibility to set up the kiosk in multiple locations throughout the facility such as poles, walls, counters or endcaps. The Firebird self-service kiosk features a multi-touch capacitive touchscreen that allows for on-screen gesturing users are accustomed to in their personal devices.
The kiosk also features an RGB LED light bar for device and scan status visual feedback. Firebird is powered by Android 8.1 running on an ARM octa-core processor at 1.8 GHz. Firebird’s powerful architecture is equipped to handle even the most demanding applications. Using consumer-grade devices becomes a financial headache for businesses in the long run as the cost to repair or replace parts isn’t cost-effective. Firebird was built with commercial-grade components made to withstand long-term continuous usage. At its core, the main functionality of Firebird is to act as a standalone stationary computer equipped with a 2D omnidirectional scan engine. This stationary kiosk is useful in many scenarios including scanning badges, gift cards, products, raw materials, and even tools used in the workplace. The optional camera also gives employees to interact with a camera for video or photographing purposes.
AML’s StoreScan price verification software is designed specifically for Firebird self-service kiosk and greatly simplifies the deployment of a retail price checking solution. StoreScan uses a web API interface for its real-time price lookup. This interface is configurable and, in many cases, may be able to work with existing retailer web services with no software development required.
Power-over-Ethernet is a standard feature on all AML kiosks. No need to locate the device near an AC wall outlet as long as an Ethernet connection to a PoE-equipped network is available. A unique feature of the Firebird is its ability to be configured in either a landscape or portrait mode. All I/O Ports are located on the back of the unit as a security measure.
