Consider Contactless Photo Booths For Your Next Event
With the changes in the world, and concerns over social distancing, COVID-19, and sanitization, there is a growing demand for contactless photo booth rentals as events start back up.
Traditionally, guests would need to press a button or tap the touch screen monitor on the photobooth to start taking the picture.
Well thanks to the ingenuity of photo booth software companies, you can now activate a photo booth without having to touch it.
You can take your picture, GIF, or video, and still share it via email or text.
Why Go Contactless For Your Photo Booth?
How do you run a contactless photo booth?
Running a touch-free or contactless photo booth experience is easy and straightforward.
You need to have some form of way to initiate the photo session, and most implementations use the camera and a QR code.
Your guests can scan a QR code or visit a special website on their own phone, and then enter their information, which produces a unique QR code for the guest.
Then the guest holds their phone up to the photo booth camera, which reads the QR code and starts the session.
Once the pictures are taken, they are sent automatically to the guest using the information they provided.
The requirements to run a touch-free photo booth experience are easy to achieve.
If you already have a photo booth, with DSLR camera, tablet computer, shell, then you’re almost ready.
The key is to have the right photo booth software with the abilities to run contactless and touch-free.
