Radiant Systems says it has found a way for cinema operators to provide automated ticketing to patrons before they enter the theatre lobby.

The Radiant Outdoor Ticketing Kiosk is an environmentally hardened, wireless self-service kiosk based on Intel processors. It enables ticketing anywhere, from the gathering area outside the lobby to mall entrances or sidewalks leading from the parking lot.

Radiant says it developed the latest addition to its family of self-service kiosk solutions in response to cinema operators’ desire to drive revenue opportunities and improve guest service by eliminating frustrating lines.

“The Outdoor Ticketing Kiosk takes self-service benefits of speed and convenience to the next level,” said Chris Lybeer, president of the Radiant Entertainment Division. “It enables operators to place kiosks where they reach more patrons and add the most value. In initial pilots, patrons are using the outdoor kiosks extensively. Specifically, outdoor kiosks are increasing the overall kiosk usage at the theatre, and patrons are using the outdoor version at a rate twice that of kiosks in the lobby.”
