It was last fall, when Apollo’s UK sister company, Display Technology Ltd., was displaying the VideoPoster at the Kiosk London 2011 Expo show that the parking meter supplier realized they had found the display solution they’d been seeking.
For use in the parking meters, Apollo’s VideoPoster was configured for a 10.1″ widescreen panel and a trigger playlist via a PIR (passive infrared sensor) motion sensor was added. Utilizing Apollo’s 10.1” projected capacitive touch sensor High Bright display (with an impressive 1000 nit luminescence perfect for use in bright sun); the screen shows 3rd party advertising. When a customer gets close to the meter, then PIR triggers an instructional playlist that displays parking rates. The meter was successfully launched in Amsterdam last month.
Several features of Apollo’s VideoPoster make it perfect for applications like parking meters. Constructed of high grade industrial components with no moving parts, the VideoPoster ensures long-term durability and reliability. It can also operate in portrait (vertical) or landscape (horizontal)
