ORLANDO, FL – November 16, 2010 – Fantasy Entertainment (www.fantasyent.com) today announced the launch of “BlabaEVENT”, a software option for its growing line of event rental photo booths. This announcement takes place at the annual “International Association of Amusement Parks & Attractions” (IAAPA) Conference and Tradeshow in Orlando, FL, where Fantasy Entertainment is exhibiting in booths # 319 and 420.
“Since the launch of our BlabaBooth product at IAAPA in 2009, we’ve seen how customers of our coin-operated booths appreciate the many benefits they receive as we extend their photo booth experience to the web,” says Casey Cammann, Fantasy Entertainment’s Vice President of Business Development. “With the launch of BlabaEVENT, we’ve built upon this success by merging complimentary video and photo technologies into a turnkey rental service offering that adds significant value for our customers – as well as their clientele and guests.”
About the BlabaEVENT Experience
With each BlabaEVENT session, guests have the option to commemorate the occasion by recording a personal video message for the benefit of the guest of honor or hosts. Next, guests choose their desired photo effect and favorite graphics to enhance their printed photos. Captured video is played-back to entertain while photos are printing, and all video and photo content is saved for exporting. Each photo strip includes a unique code that provides the owner with direct access to their own content, as well as that generated by other event attendees. All content can be automatically uploaded in real-time via cellular air card (requires cellular plan, sold separately) or after the event through a direct Cat-5 network connection.
After every event, the experience is relived as content is viewed and shared via the web in secure, brandable albums that operators configure through an intuitive interface. If needed, photo content can be pre-screened and approved prior to publishing. Event attendees navigate to published albums via their code, or from a link on the operator’s website. Attendees can add their own text comments to albums, and seamless integration with the most popular social networking sites (such as Facebook, Twitter, etc.), and content sharing sites (YouTube, Flickr, etc.) and instant messaging (AIM, MSN, Yahoo, etc.) makes it easy to share memorable content with friends and family everywhere.
Benefits to the Operator
BlabaEVENT provides a comprehensive, integrated system that allows operators to offer a full-featured, premium service with unique, differentiating features. Much of album configuration can be automated so that operator involvement is minimal. In addition, operators benefit from increased website traffic as clients and guests access their content, and from additional exposure generated through the viral nature of the video and photo content.
