PRESS RELEASE: PicsWare Provides Picture Taking, Tagging and Searching for Freedom Alliance Golf Classic
PicsWare helps sponsor the Freedom Alliance Golf Classic, a fundraiser supporting the troops and families of the military, by providing picture taking, tagging, searching and downloading through on-site touch screen kiosks.
PRLog (Press Release) – Aug 06, 2010 – York, PA August 6, 2010 – PicsWare provided its portable photo tagging solution that sends pictures to download-on-demand touch screen kiosks for the 2010 Freedom Alliance Golf Classic at Yankee Trace Golf Club in Miamisburg, Ohio on July 30th and 31st. The event helps build awareness for America’s honored heroes, as well as offering many resources for families of troops.
PicsWare, a Gold Sponsor of the event, supplied its turnkey photo management application, kiosk hardware and staffing in order to capture every moment. At the start of the event, PicsWare printed badges for the players. These badges were used to tag and identify pictures taken of the players during the event. Pictures were taken throughout the day, from the volunteer set-up, bag drops, registration, team photos, insitu player shots and amazing tee box, fairway and green moments.
A professional DSLR camera with eye-fi card, a mobile handheld device with bar code scanner running PicsWare mobile, a server running PicsWare server and a 32” Touch screen running PicsWare kiosk were integrated together to make the solution possible. Every player was provided a preprint badge with name and 2D barcode at registration. The PicsWare staff scanned the bar code anywhere on the course, taking as many pictures as the moment presented, and tagging these photos with that player or team’s unique information. At the end of the day, the players were able to walk up to a touch screen with thousands of photos from the day’s event displayed, scan their badge and every photo taken and tagged of that individual player would appear.
“It was an incredible way to separate our tournament from other charitable tournaments and provide our players, sponsors and volunteers a fun and exciting way to see the photos from the event. Frankly, we did not know this technology existed or would we have attempted anything like this without the strong support of OneSource and PicsWare,” said Al Scott, the Freedom Alliance Charity Golf Tournament founder.
“PicsWare is still a fairly new application in the market and the Freedom Alliance Golf Classic was a wonderful opportunity for us to accomplish many great things. We were able give something back to families of our brave soldiers, provide a wonderful, fun, unique photo management service for a great organization and finally, build some market awareness for PicsWare,” stated Edward Crowley, Co-Founder of PicsWare
PicsWare, a joint venture between OneSource Interactive and ADSI, enables professional photographers to tag photos by scanning or swiping ID cards or RFID bands on a handheld computer and transfers the data to a self-service kiosk where customers can quickly locate, view and download pictures. PicsWare simplifies this process, improving the customer experience, increasing revenue opportunities, and making events more environmentally friendly.
