KT Group Launches new portal

KT Group launches to showcase its new i5 tablet kiosk stand

Hong Kong – KT Group has launched its first in a series of new planned web portals catering to specific market niches. Launched on 12th April, showcases the i5, another sleek and elegantly engineered Kiosk, from KT to house a wide range of Tablet PCs including the new iPad and Galaxy.

KT Group Ltd is a Hong Kong based Kiosk manufacturing company with a pedigree dating back to 2005 that focuses on the design and manufacture of Self Service Kiosks and Digital Signage Terminals. The company’s in-depth tier one knowledge of Kiosks has resulted in KT having achieved hundreds of installs all across the globe with Kiosks being shipped from its central locations both in Asia and Southern Europe.

Speaking at the launching ceremony of its new portal Mr. Kenneth Larsen, Managing Director and owner of KT Group Ltd, explained that “Our philosophy of fulfilling customer needs led to the design and development of the i5 Kiosk enclosure to support demands for a quality manufactured Kiosk at affordable prices and unique to the KT brand of products which are known for their uniquely sleek and functional design.”

The i5 Kiosk enclosure will support the growing interest in Tablet PCs being used to provide interactive solutions. The i5 combines strength of the barebone steel frame with a high polished design effect using an acrylic panel to complement the frame. The acrylic panel which is easily customized for customers allows for Corporate Branding or Advertising message that can easily be changed for the next campaign or event. The i5 can also be easily branded using graphic wraps for each new occasion.

Speaking via a video link from the factory in Asia, Mr. Steven Cui, Chief Engineer explains, “The pièce de résistance is our patent pending bezel frame. The frame has been designed to ensure that it not only provides a chic yet sturdy frame around the monitor but also hides the home button on the iPad and ensures that users are not able to access the power cable, shut the system down or insert 3rd party media sticks into the USB sockets. The web camera is still visible for use, if required, and the whole bezel frame is synergized into a complete unit which on one side is securely locked with a cylindrical locking metal plate.”

“The i5 design is unique to any other model currently available on the market offered by our competitors. The design isn’t just another metal box. The i5 is designed to have flair, character, flexibility and security”, explains Mr. Kenneth Larsen answering a question on competition and similar products in the market.
