In October 2015, Instagram introduced a new app called Boomerang. The app that takes short videos and then plays it backward and forward. This new concept of videos playing forward and backward became an instant hit on social media due to its novelty and the hilarious effects it is able to create. In fact, whenever we attend road shows, product launches, branding campaigns etc, we always see guests taking out their smart phones to shoot Boomerang videos. This demand and great interest in Boomerang videos drove us to develop our own Boomerang Video Booth. It works similar to the Boomerang app. But now, we added a marketing/branding element to it, such that all Boomerang videos recorded via our Boomerang Video booth will be fully custom branded with your event’s branding!
How does our Boomerang Video Booth works?
Position yourself in front of our camera. With our live view monitor in front of you, you can see yourself in real time. Pose and position accordingly. If you wish, grab a friend or two to join you.
When ready, our friendly assistant will activate our Boomerang Video Booth camera, which will capture continuous shots for 3 seconds. Wave, make a silly face or just do any funny actions!
Once done, our software will automatically stitch all these shots up to form a continuous looping (forward and backward) Boomerang video. You can immediately preview the Boomerang video that was being recorded on our monitor. Next, proceed out of our Boomerang Video Booth. Our second assistant will then assist you with regards to emailing the Boomerang video to yourself.

What is the difference between a Boomerang Video Booth and a GIF booth
Our GIF booth photos take 3 to 4 photos separately with an interval in between. Meaning to say, guests will be able to change their poses after each shot has been taken. With these 3 to 4 shots taken, they will then be stitched together by our software to form a GIF. For our Boomerang video booth we take a whole burst of shots (within a 4 seconds duration) with no interval between each shot (just like taking a video). Your guests will not be posing between each shot. Instead, they will just be doing some actions during the 4 seconds duration. Our Boomerang Video Booth software will then do the magic to create a looping (forward and backward) Boomerang video.
Does your Boomerang Video Booth comes with an actual videographer?
No. Our Boomerang Video Booth uses our own custom Boomerang Video Booth software to capture the footages. We’ve created our Boomerang Video Booth software such that your guests can see themselves live in the monitor positioned in front of them. As such, they can pose and position themselves accordingly. We will always have one Boomerang booth assistant present on site to guide your guests accordingly. Once all is good, he/she will start the recording process via activation of our software.
How long will it take before my guests can email the Boomerang video they’ve taken to themselves?
A Boomerang video will be made available for your guests to email it to themselves within 1 minute.
