Star’s SK1-21 Kiosk Printer: Improve Your Cinema Experience

Posted November 3, 2017

Besides the movie that you are going to watch, the ticketing system are integral to the cinema experience as well. Kiosks can be used to purchase tickets, retrieve tickets bought online, and to place concession orders. This is especially important for movie goers who arrive with just a few minutes to spare. They can bypass the line to purchase tickets or snacks and still make it in time before the movie starts.

Kiosk Printer

To make sure your cinema kiosk is reaching its full potential by considering these 4 things:
SK1-21_600x377-IMG_9847

1. Your Kiosk should support a thermal printer– A cinema kiosk should support a heavy duty thermal printer with a jam free system to produce tickets in the fastest way. Star’s SK1-21 Kiosk Printer two inch series provides dependable, maintenance- free printers that have a fast print speed of 200mm/ sec with 203 dpi resolution. All SK-21 models will intergrate with many commonly used kiosk solutions. It provides high speed, reliability, and will integrate in your kiosk seamlessly.

2. Barcode Scanner- Movie theaters often offer their own loyalty program to keep the customers returning back.  Your customers love freebies and accruing points towards free movie tickets, so don’t keep them waiting on the full service line to rack up the points.

3. Integrated Speakers- Talk to the customer through the ticket buying process. This is important for those who aren’t familiar with the self-service kiosks check out.

4. Card Payment Acceptance- Not everyone carries cash, so make sure that your kiosk is equipped with a card reader and payment processing platform.

Check out the video below on a successful self service kiosk integration at Nitehawk Cinema.

New Peripheral Support for Star’s mPOP System

Posted June 2, 2017

Star has announced a new series of peripherals for their comprehensive mPOP system. Star’s mPOP now supports an optional scale, 2D barcode scanner, customer display, and external cash drawer. With these added peripherals, retailers and restaurateurs can now transform their mPOP into a complete point of sale hub to accept more versatile transactions in higher volume.

Star has integrated support for three Detecto APS scales. The APS scales supported are offered for varied use cases. The APS10 (max. 15 kg) is ideal for candy shops, delis, frozen yogurt shops, etc., where the APS20 (max. 15 kg) is better for larger items like bags of fruit and vegetables at a farmer’s market or grocery store. The APS12 (max. 160 oz.) is best in similar environments as the APS10, or any other location than prefers to measure in ounces.

Star has integrated a 2D barcode scanner for the mPOP. Now, users have the option of choosing between the Star 1D scanner and the new 2D scanner. The 2D barcode reader will be beneficial to accept coupons in the form of QR code, or access item information. In addition to 2D barcode scanner support, Star has designed a two-line, blue backlit customer display with up to 20 characters per line. With this support, the retailer can not only show the customer their transaction price, but they can also add advertising messages for when the mPOP is not being used.

Lastly, Star added a cash drawer connection port (DK port) to the mPOP to support an extra cash drawer. This is ideal for users who need a point of sale system with a small footprint, but still have a higher cash flow, such as a bar or deli.
