Sprint, MediaTile Sign Agreement to Power HumanKiosk Solution

Sprint, a leader in wireless communication, recently announced in a press release that HumanKiosk Solution from MediaTile, a recognized leader in 3G and 4G cloud-based digital signage solutions, is powered by the company’s MediaCast Video Presence system, that accesses Sprint's speedy 4G high-bandwidth network.

HumanKiosk Solution has made it easy for marketers to humanize their brand interaction, improve the customer experience, and deliver their messages, through its capabilities of interactive digital signage with on-demand, virtual experts and face-to-face interaction.

Also, it allows users to access scheduled and dynamically generated media, and provides interactive touch-based digital promotions through MediaCast Video Presence. With Sprint 4G network, HumanKiosk is easy to install, and can easily support secure, high-definition, two-way video conversations using just a single power source.

“The HumanKiosk, combined with America's Favorite 4G Network, takes interactive digital signage and kiosks to a whole new dimension,” said Kevin Kunkel, regional vice president for Sprint Business, in a statement. “MediaTile solutions, combined with our technology leadership and open systems, enable businesses to take innovative, anytime service to customers via personal two-way interaction. The possibilities are virtually endless when it comes to enhancing customer service with this type of technology.”

“With the integrated support for the Sprint 4G network in the HumanKiosk Solution, we are able to significantly eliminate the on-site networking costs and complexities associated with traditional telepresence systems and digital signage,” said Simon Wilson, CEO, The MediaTile Company. “Using Sprint 4G, we are able to get the same level of performance as three T1 lines without the need for on-site IT -- we simply grab bandwidth from the air.”

“MediaTile's HumanKiosk Solution is an amazing example of how companies are leveraging the Sprint 4G network to deliver innovative solutions that solve today's business problems with new levels of efficiency and unbeatable economics,” said Wayne Ward, vice president of Sprint's Emerging Solution Group. “By leveraging Sprint 4G services with HumanKiosk, businesses can deliver instant personal service and support, to far more locations, without the costs and complexities associated with on-site staffing or fixed site telepresence.”
