Glamazon activation (The Photo booth Guys)

Thanks to Steve Bliesner & Photo Booth Guys Australia  for letting us share this video of their latest activation for Amazon.

Steve writes

Working in harmony to create high end activations that go out for, not $100-200 an hour.. but $1000 – $ 2000 an hour.

I used every trick in the Breeze book to pull this one off.

Breeze for iPad was running a very custom survey to collect data on guests, to determine what Drag Queen they would be and what personalised text they wanted on their GIF and Print. Additionally, guests entered their email address (so they didn’t have to use a sharing station later).

That data was sent via Breeze Hub, to Breeze Kiosk, where a QR code had been generated, and was then scanned in via a barcode reader, by our staff, in to Breeze Webcam.

Webcam had a customised interface that was live streamed to two large screens… (that masked any sensitive information and removed any interface control elements).

With one scan, that QR code kicked off the session, auto chose the chosen Drag Queen, personalised their print and GIF and emailed the image to the guest.

There is only one company that makes software that allows people like you and me to do stuff like this.

Meet Steve at the Breeze stand (#1113) at Photo Booth Expo next week.

Breeze Booth 1.0.8 and 1.0.7 round up

We have released two new Breeze Booth  upgrades in the last few weeks. These upgrades are free to all Breeze Booth for iPad/iPhone users.

  • Breeze Booth 1.0.8 introduces QR codes on prints, and increases the number of menus from 2 to 4.
  • Breeze Booth 1.0.7 improved customization of the Start button.

Why put QR codes on my prints?

QR (Quick Response) codes are a fast and simple way to drive guests to

  • Online gallery/microsites for your event
  • Guests’ own images in your microsite
  • Specific landing page and website
  • Discounts and promotions

QR codes are increasingly popular, as many smart phone cameras include a built in QR code reader. ( There is no need to download a special app, just point the camera at the QR code.)

BTW Our sharing app Breeze Kiosk can also show QR codes on the main display which take guests straight to their images in event microsites.

Menus

Menus are a simple way to offer guests choices  such as virtual props or filter style. Use up to 4 different menus in your ready screens.

Start button customization

Do you want to deploy remote and unattended iPads without fear of clients knowing what software you use?

Breeze Booth features the most powerful and flexible interface designer of any iPad app in the industry. You can already customize  the Breeze Booth start screen and Start button . Breeze Booth 1.0.7 improved customization of the Start button.

The flexibility built in to our interface design is also great for localization and creative interface design.

Breeze Booth 1.0.4 is here

Breeze Booth (iPad + iPhone) 1.0.4 and companion app Event Editor 1.3.1 are released today.

What’s new?

  • MP3 soundtracks for MP4 slideshows and boomerangs
  • Support for multiple props in each image

Vary the props in your GIFs and photos

Use several digital props in one photo or GIF

You can find a tutorial outlining how to add virtual props here, and more details in the online manual.

Display virtual text correctly in both live view and outputs

Photo booth live view is usually mirrored so that guests see themselves as they would in a mirror. This causes problems with text in virtual props because the text is also mirrored. Breeze Booth 1.0.4 solves this problem.
