Built on the Windows 10 IoT Enterprise operating system, the KMC-W features an interactive 24″ display and expanded software compatibility for the food and beverage, retail and travel sectors.

Samsung Electronics has announced the global launch of a Windows version of the Samsung Kiosk.

Previewed at ISE 2023, The KMC-W features an interactive 24″ display that brings expanded software compatibility to advanced self-service display technology for the food and beverage, retail, travel and healthcare industries.

Built on the Windows 10 IoT Enterprise operating system (OS), the KMC-W is powered by the 11th Gen Intel Core Processor. The kiosks are fully compatible with major ordering, point-of-sale, and property management system software.

The display comes equipped with a range of CPU options – including a choice of Intel Celeron 6305E, Core i3 or Core i5 processors – as well as fast 8GB DRAM memory and a 256GB SSD for greater storage capacity.

Offering more interfaces for third-party peripherals, the KMC-W's integration capabilities enable it to meet the needs of businesses ranging from hotels and airports to convenience stores, restaurants and pharmacies. The kiosks can be customised for use as ID/passport scanners, payment terminals and vending machines.

The KMC-W's flexible installation options enable it to be affixed to a countertop, wall mount or a stand. Touchscreen sanitation is provided by the shatterproof film and antimicrobial coating that Samsung applies to its kiosk displays.

Among the companies which are already operating Samsung Kiosks on Windows OS are fast-food chain KFC, which has installed the technology at 63 locations across the Philippines, and French homewares company LAPEYRE, which has kiosks throughout its 126 stores.

Hoon Chung, executive vice-president of Samsung's visual display business, said: "The retail landscape is changing, based on consumer behaviours and rising demand for contactless and non-cash payment methods.

"As this trend accelerates – not just in retail but also in the food and beverage, healthcare, travel and other sectors – the Samsung Kiosk is the future-ready solution industries need to respond to global demand."

Analisa Roberts, general manager of global device partners at Microsoft, said: "The new KMC-W leverages the 11th Gen Intel Core Processor Enterprise Edition and the powerful Windows 10 IoT Enterprise OS to expand customer choices. With 8GB of DRAM and a 256GB SSD, it provides ultra-fast processing and ample storage space to meet evolving industry demands."
