January 16, 2008 Despite the company name, Micro Industries® new release screen is anything but small. The high-definition (1080p) Touch&Go; Messenger 65 is geared for retail customers to create interactive in-store messaging on a super-sized 65” screen.
Adding to its line of 32- and 46-inch computers, Messenger 65 is Micro Industries® biggest, most colorful all-in-one product ever. The system allows large HD marketing direct to customers and is big enough for use in open retail environments such as airport complexes and shopping malls. Powered by an Intel Core 2 Duo processor to deliver high performance and improved power efficiency, it comes equipped with a 1080p, ultra-bright LCD with a viewing angle of 176 degrees, an 160 GB hard drive, DVD/CDRW and Microsoft Windows XP.
An IR touch screen, internal stereo speakers, and video options are also available. A protective glass panel makes the LCD practical and easy to clean.
The computer is retail-ready for interactive consumer applications, digital signage, store maps, advertising, messaging, product information, and demonstrations. Mounting options mean it can be hung from a wall or ceiling, or sat at the counter top as a point of sale display. The 64.6" wide by 37.6" high by 7.4" deep screen weighs 220 pounds and will sell for around USD$14,995.
“The Messenger 65 provides a much-anticipated, large-format, all-in-one computer system to retailers for direct-to-consumer, in-store, interactive marketing applications,” said Michael Curran, Micro Industries’ chief executive officer. “Retailers have been waiting for this high-impact Touch&Go; computer. It’s big enough for use in open retail environments ranging from huge airport complexes to large stores and malls.”
