Tethering Input Options for Kodak Picture Kiosks
Tethering devices to the Kodak Picture Kiosk is becoming the new favorite way for Consumers to print from their smart phone.
Improved Kodak Picture Kiosk workflows in software version KPK+ v5.1 provides helpful hints and automatic detection to make it easier for Consumers to connect and print.
Reasons for Consumers beginning to use tethers over loading special applications vary and include:
Tethering options are available from a wide range of providers. However not all tethers provide the ability to transfer images.Through extensive work with different cable products Kodak Alaris has verified some options.
Kodak Alaris currently recommends the following tethers/cables:
StilGut Magic Trio Lightning - 3 in 1 cable requires 1 USB port for connection of the 3 most common connections for smart devices
Hama Cables are individual cables each requiring a separate USB port for connection. Each of the 3 most common connections for smart devices are sold separately.
Note that Hama nor StilGut have any connection or agreement with Kodak Alaris. Recommendations are based on lab results of success only. Cables other than StilGut and Hama may also work with the Kodak Picture Kiosk but should be tested first in store for functionality.
Hama cables (left) require three separate USB cables and connections to the KPK.
The StilGut cable (right) is a three headed cable with one connection required for KPK.
Installation recommendations are for the USB connector end to be inserted in the back of the KPK with the cable(s) brought to the front of the kiosk so that the smart phone connectors are presented to the Consumer. Securing the tether cable(s) involves utilizing wire tie(s) and securing the tether cable(s) to the video cable or nearest available permanent device cable located in the back of the KPK.
For added security it is recommended that the cable(s) be routed to the front under the kiosk but it is the Retailers’ option to place the cable to best suit their Consumers’ experience.
