[prMac.com] Sunnyvale, California - The Perch Security Stand has recently been announced as the newest product from IPEVO, a maker and designer of technology products for education and business. Touted as a "complete interactive kiosk solution," the Perch Security Stand offers a lockable mount for the iPad 3 and iPad 2 that prevents the tablet from being removed. Three different sizes of the Perch Security Stand are now available at the IPEVO Online Store.
The Perch Security Stand comes in S-Type, intended for desktops and tabletops, M-Type for seated users, and the longest L-Type for standing users. All three feature a sleek forged aluminum leg and heavy-gauge steel feet. The thick plastic holder accommodates the third generation of Apple's iPad (i.e. iPad 3) as well as the iPad 2. The holder can mount the device in either landscape or portrait orientation, and the viewing angle can be customized with a gentle tug thanks to the holder's dual-axis hinge.
The security holder also features two locks - one on the neck which prevents the holder from being removed from the stand, and a second lock which prevents the iPad from being removed from the holder. Thus, the iPad is protected from theft and from accidental damage due to dropping or similar. This is ideal for businesses (like restaurants, salons, boutique shops, art galleries and more) as well as educational institutions which can benefit from the public display of an interactive multimedia kiosk.
There are two other elements which contribute to IPEVO's complete interactive kiosk solution. The first is a home button lock which comes with the stand. This lock can be optionally installed to prevent the user from hitting the home button and thus exiting the current app, video, etc. The second element is the IPEVO Showcase app, which is now available at no cost through the Apple App Store. Showcase features customizable options which limit and control the user's experience. Showcase can prevent the user from operating the iPad's touchscreen, and Showcase can return the browser to the home page after each user is done browsing, for two examples.
"With Perch Security Stand and its companion Showcase app, we've created a versatile 'set it and forget it' type of interactive kiosk for iPad," said Royce Hong, CEO and big head of design of IPEVO. "Educators and businesspeople are discovering the advantages of a kiosk-style presentation to show off their products, deliver information, or entertain, but they don't want to have to babysit the device. Perch Security Stand offers three sizes of mounts for all user scenarios, and it also offers peace of mind with two locks which prevent device removal."
All three sizes of the Perch Security Stand are now available at the IPEVO Online Store. The IPEVO Showcase app is available at no charge through the Apple App Store.
