Self-service information terminals “KIOSK” enable us to access necessary information and use various services. We see them recently here and there in commercial facilities like convenience stores and department stores, in medical care facilities or in facilities for travel. Although, recently in Japan, streets are filled with so many KIOSK terminals that it makes us to call Japan “KIOSK paradise”, it got first introduced to Japan in 1984 to the system called “CAPTAIN” providing information of characters and screens by using analogue telephone lines by Nippon Telegraph and Telephone Public Corporation (current : NTT (Nippon Telegraph and Telephone Corporation) ). This system was installed mainly in local governments and public facilities and was used for providing information about living and for train seats reservation, etc. After that, KIOSK terminals were installed for revisiting reception systems in hospitals or airport facilities as well as got used in distribution industry and now they are widely spread. Up to now, we have supplied lots of our products to these KIOSK terminal vendors.

New services with KIOSKs like introduction of electronic money will appear in the future. We will continue to provide our products with improving functionality, operability, environmental-tolerance and endurance to the system vendors in order to meet all customers’ needs.
