Touch free booth control
Offer your clients totally hands free operation and a better guest experience with contactless data collection, touchless start, and fast hygenic sharing.
Fast touch free emails and texts
Guests type their email address or cell phone number once into their smart phone, generating a unique QR code they use to power the booth and send emails and texts. Fast, simple, hygenic. Genuine contactless booth operation.
Touch free links to your online gallery
Turning the QR code concept on it’s head, you can also display a QR code on your sharing screen for guests to scan with their smart phone. Use this to direct guests to your online gallery for immediate social sharing.
What is Gmail Authentication and how can it affect me?
Google changed the requirements for authenticating Gmail emails in 2020. Gmail users now need to ‘authenticate’ ie approve third party applications which send emails from their gmail accounts.
Adding support for Gmail Authentication to Webcam Photobooth means you can use Gmail to share photos from the booth. More
What is Transport Layer Security and how might it affect me?
You may be familiar with Gmail authentication, but it’s quite likely you never heard of Transport Layer Security (TLS) before.
Transport Layer Security (TLS) is a protocol used to send communications securely over computer networks. Many ISPs send emails using simple mail transfer protocol (SMTP), and SMTP emails use transport layer security (TLS).
A growing number of ISPs require TLS version 1.2, so we have added support for this to Webcam 2.6
By adding support for TLS 1.2 to Webcam 2.6, emails from the booth still work as and when your ISP decides it’s a requirement.
Note TLS 1.2 is also supported in DSLR Remote Pro, Kiosk and Hub. More
