1. THE BEGINNING

This innovation initially came to life when…

The Original Retro was conceived as the latest in our range of Photo Booths in order to provide a faster, lighter and more portable option that well design and incredibly attractive. The innovation allows photographers and event rental companies to run Photo Booths as an additional service and drastically reduce their overhead costs. The exterior is uniquely designed, highly customisable with interchangeable colour shells and brandable surfaces. High camera equipment and studio lighting allows amazing quality images and a memorable experience for users.

2. WHAT & HOW

The purpose of this innovation is to…

reduce the overhead costs with a stylish product
It does this by…

A clever use of space, very light weight materials, a very small package when transporting (it can go on an airplane), as well as a highly customisable exterior with retro design appeal.

3. PURPOSE & BENEFITS

This innovation improves on what came before because…

Most products on the market are heavy and are hard for a single person to operate and require expensive transport means such as vans and trailers. The Retro will fit into a small hatchback.

Reduced setup and operation time, reduce transport costs and the ability to appeal to a wider range of customers with a brandable, customisable and proffessional exterior. End users enjoy a unique experience and incredibly high quality image quality.
