Switchable Privacy for ATM and POS
Today it is more and more vital for payment devices such as ATM machines, payment terminals and cash registers to have a higher level of privacy to prevent new skimming techniques.
At the same time the display should not be darkened by any privacy filter to allow advertising to be shown on the screen
siOPTICA sioSHIELD provides all LCD based ATMs and other Payment terminals with a high level of security. In privacy mode shoulder surfing becomes impossible and skimming cameras are blocked. In public mode the display is not darkened and shows full resolution and colour.
Apart from this sioSHIELD allows direct and secure pin-entry on the touch display. In some cases, the mechanical pin pad no longer may be needed.
Verification by Brightsight lab concluded that a display with siOPTICA switchable privacy technology being in shielding (privacy) mode showed compliance with the shielding angle requirements of DTR A8 of the PCI PTS POI security requirements, version 4.1.b.
