PRODUCT: Programmable Buttons
MANUFACTURER: Coin Mechanisms, Gamesman Ltd.
Coin Mechanisms, and its partner, Gamesman Ltd., will debut their advanced Programmable Player Interface at G2E 2007. The PPI is a programmable slot machine button deck ideal for server-based slots and interactive fixed-odds betting terminals. The PPI can be configured as required by the manufacturer and the application. Traditional fixed-legend buttons can be combined with programmable buttons to meet the needs of any application and any budget.
Programmable buttons feature high-resolution, wide-viewing-angle OLED displays. Two sizes are available, 1.1-inch (96 x 64) and 1.6-inch (128 x 65), both in yellow monochrome. New in 2007 is a programmable feature button with a full-color 2.7-inch (320 x 240) LCD display.
Programmable buttons support animations at a rate of 12 frames per second. The LCD button can support full motion video. All programmable buttons offer the option of programmable LED lighting effects in the button bezel, either RGB (red/green/blue) or single-color. Each button is a stand-alone smart button that utilizes a USB connection to a USB hub in the host machine. This allows for easy scalability and maximum design flexibility. A more custom option is to use a master bus backplane communicating with the host machine by a choice of USB, RS232, or other serial protocol as may be specified. All programmable buttons can receive real-time downloads to active displays or periodic downloads to on-board memory.
Programmable buttons are available from Coin Mechanisms in North America and Gamesman Ltd in Europe and
