What’s new in Kiosk 2.0?
We have added a bunch of great new features in the latest release of Kiosk. Guests can collect and share several images using the new clipboard. You are loving Touch free operation in DSLR Remote Pro and Booth (iPad + iPhone), so we have added touch free sharing to Kiosk.
There’s more – Kiosk 2.0 introduces a QR code based filter you can use so guests see only their own images.
Kiosk 2.0 also adds a new startup screen displayed while Kiosk loads the first images, an improved algorithm for caching thumbnails, support for Gmail’s new authentication requirements, and a few fixes.
Select and share several images
Guests can select several photos, GIFs or videos and share them in a single email with the new Kiosk clipboard
You can choose the look and position of the clipboard, and set a limit to the number of images guests can share.
Scan to share
When you run a contactless booth with Breeze DSLR Remote Pro or Breeze Booth (iPad + iPhone), guests can use Kiosk to share photos, GIFs and videos by scanning the QR code used to control the photo booth.
Guests can also scan to share all the clipboard images in a single email:
Guests see just their own images
At large events and those where GDPR or privacy is a concern, guests scan their unique QR code and display just their own images at the kiosk. Learn more about automatic image filtering.
Note: When filtering images include email address* or another unique identifer in both QR code and DSLR Remote Pro or Booth (iPad + iPhone) image filenames.
New startup screen
startup.jpg is a new screen displayed while images are being loaded into Kiosk each time it starts.
Usually only the operator sees this screen. To replace it with your own version add a jpg called startup.jpg to the Kiosk screen images folder. Like other screens startup.jpg should be the same size in pixels as the screen on the device.
Google changed the requirements for authenticating Gmail emails this year.
To send Gmail emails from a PC running Kiosk you will need to ‘authenticate’ ie approve third party applications which send emails from their gmail accounts. Go to the Kiosk 2.0 Email Server Settings screen and enter gmail in the Host field. You can find step by step instructions for DSLR Remote Pro here. Authentication for Kiosk works in the same way.
Try Kiosk 2.0 for yourself
Breeze Kiosk 2.0 is a free upgrade for all registered users who purchased Kiosk after 5th June 2019. Customers with older licenses need to buy an upgrade license to use this release.
