To help financial institutions provide the fast, reliable and secure experience that consumers are demanding at the self-service channel, Diebold, Incorporated (NYSE: DBD) has added high-performance cash-dispensing and full-function models to its latest self-service platform.

These self-service terminals feature a new, industry-leading intelligent cash dispensing module that offers 50 percent higher cassette note capacity to drive operational efficiencies, a modern interface that enhances privacy and accessibility, and state-of-the-art security features that protect consumers and financial institutions against fraud.

Over the past year, Diebold has unveiled three new lines of ATMs—standard market, extended branch and now, the high-performance line. Designed to meet specific market and branch needs, the standard line is ideal for high-growth areas with mass-market applications, while the extended branch line offers rich transaction sets and advanced functionalities that frees tellers to focus on relationship building and cross-selling opportunities with consumers. The new self-service platform, paired with Diebold’s industry-leading services and software, provide a complete end-to-end solution for financial institutions.

The new high-performance units offer a highly personalized self-service experience and are ideal for high-traffic, high-volume environments and address a number of key business objectives, including:

• Optimize Consumer Experiences: The new units feature ActivView™, a secondary 7-inch touch screen display that promotes enhanced privacy by transferring personal information from the primary display to the lower secondary display. This prohibits an onlooker’s visibility to important consumer information and also promotes Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) compliance. In addition, ActivMedia™, a single slot, mixed media deposit acceptor, makes deposits fast, and simple for consumers. A new all-in-one PC, processor and display, ActivCore™, combines a high-performance processor with a larger 19-inch touchscreen display to enable faster transaction times, increased availability and greater ease-of-use for consumers.

• Drive Efficiencies: Diebold’s high-performance terminals feature a new advanced cash dispensing platform, ActivCash™, which reduces downtime and the frequency of cash replenishments. ActivCash averages 50 percent greater cassette note capacity when compared to competitor ATMs—while offering improved security, reliability and serviceability. Diebold’s ActivPower™ smart power management system is designed for industry-leading efficiency and can reduce idle power consumption to less than 100 watts - up to 40 percent less than similar competitive terminals. Servicing and maintenance tasks are also simplified by ActivPower’s individual module power control and battery backup system.

• Enhance Security: Industry-leading physical and logical security features help minimize fraud losses and protect consumer data. The new high performance line includes security technology such as ActivGuard™ intelligent alarm system for enhanced monitoring, protection from logical attacks through trusted computing architecture, and the ability to control third party access to the system through authorized service. In addition, ActivEdge™, the industry's first anti-skimming card reader that prevents all known forms of skimming, is available as an option.

“We are encouraged by financial institutions' interest in the high-performance capabilities added to our latest self-service family,” said Frank A. Natoli, Jr., Diebold executive vice president, self-service technology. “Paired with our recently acquired Phoenix software capabilities and best-in-class services, the newest additions to our self-service family provide an end-to-end solution to address the needs and aspirations of our customers and their consumers.”
