VIRTUAL PHOTO BOOTH
Covid19 has changed the landscape of the event industry. With people getting more cautious about hygiene and social distancing, events now are all either going online or going hybrid (a mix of online event elements with offline event elements). Taking into account this trend, we have come up with our very own Virtual Photo Booth. As the name suggest, this service is essentially just like a photo booth service. Just that now, instead of us going to each of your guest’s home and set up a photo booth, our photo booth is now in the hands of your guests! All your guests have to do, is to visit the URL to your event’s Virtual Photo Booth using their smartphones. Then, they can enjoy the whole photo booth experience at the comfort of their home!
In additional to the usual photo capturing capability, our Virtual Photo Booth also comes with other exciting features as well. It allows your guests to capture GIF and Boomerang videos, and even decorate and enhance the captured shots using filters and digital stickers. If you are looking to further impress your guests, you can even consider adding our virtual background removal feature. This feature can automatically remove (up to almost 100% accuracy) the background of your guests and replace it with a chosen digital background without the need of an actual green screen!
We’ve built our Virtual Photo Booth with the interest of event organisers and hosts in mind. As such, it has good ability to brand, customise and white label accordingly. Check out more details below now!
Below shows an info board we did for a NDP 2020 event. As a host/organiser for your event, you can have such info board printed out and placed on site (for an offline event) or sent out as a digital mailer (for an online event). We will provide you with the QR code.

This will not be an issue as Safari is by default the web browser on iOS. For Android users, they need to visit our URL using Google Chrome.

Certainly! To provide the most value to our guests, we will always enable all 3 experiences by default. However, if you wish to disable any of these experiences, just let our team know accordingly and we will prepare it for you.
How can I add more customised overlay designs?
Our default package already includes a few customised overlay designs for each of the experience (see table above on Package). If you wish to add more customised overlay design for any of the experience, you can consider topping up an Add On (see table above on Add Ons).

Will the URL for the Virtual Photo Booth for my event ever expire?
