PMA 2018 Report
The PhotoBookPro photo album creation system, introduced last fall at the photokina trade show in Cologne, Germany, makes its U.S. debut at the Photo Marketing Association trade show here, where it is the centerpiece of the KIS Photo-Me Group exhibit booth. An open-architecture production system that works very well with the company’s “Generation 2 & 3” DKS minilabs and is powered by a variant of its My Creativ’ Album software, PhotoBookPro automatically scores, joins, folds and binds picture pages into quality photo books up to 12x8 inches in size. Our new PhotoBookPro simplifies and accelerates the on-site production of picture books, calendars, greeting cards and other photo-based keepsakes.
KIS Photo-Me Group introduced the Swifti - a versatile new “plug-n-play” micro-kiosk that lets consumers turn image files from digital cameras, cell phones, CDs/DVDs and 28 different types of media cards immediately, on-site into customized, high-margin photo keepsakes that translate into new revenues and a quick return-on-investment for the retailer. The Swifti is on display at the Photo Marketing Association trade show, March 8-11 at the Las Vegas Convention Center, in the KIS Photo-Me Group Booth, C232. It’s an excellent product for non-photo businesses - such as vacation hotels, college bookstores, amusement parks, campgrounds, nightclubs, shopping malls and conventions centers.
