Is this photo booth software for photo booth companies?2018-12-31T19:10:21+00:00

Yes, PixiCloud was built with photo booth business owners and operators in mind. The inspiration came from operating our own event photo booth rental company.

Our aim is to continue to build the best photo booth software platform that allows for affordable hardware options, supports both device cameras and professional cameras, and has a cloud-based event management system allowing for control of an entire fleet of photo booths.

Why is there a monthly subscription fee?2018-12-31T19:12:56+00:00

The PixiCloud photo booth software has a monthly subscription fee to allow us to continuously develop the software, expand cloud storage, and release new features on a rolling basis without charging additional fees.

PixiCloud allows for email and/or SMS capture for any event. A user can access and export the data captured by their Pixi kiosk through their online portal at portal.pixi.cloud. Pro and Enterprise account levels also have access to use our MailChimp integration.

What are “Overlays”?2019-01-16T16:26:36+00:00

What Android tablets do you recommend for your photo booth app?2018-08-08T16:10:52+00:00

We recommend using the Samsung Galaxy Tab A 10.1″ or the Huawei Mediapad M3 Lite 10. Both of these tablets feature Wi-Fi Direct which is necessary for our Sony camera integration. Any Android tablet with Wi-Fi Direct and Android 7 or newer should work.

However, if you plan to use the tablet internal camera, Wi-Fi Direct is not a necessary feature. We suggest the Huawei Mediapad M3 Lite 10. It features an 8MP front facing camera and can take great photos in sufficiently lit areas.

Will this photo booth software work on my iPad?2018-08-08T16:11:07+00:00

Pixi, our photo booth app is currently only supported on the Android operating system. We do have plans to release a version for IOS in the future so check back.

What cameras are supported by your photo booth software?2018-08-08T16:11:15+00:00

Our photo booth app can use either the internal tablet camera or can wirelessly tether to several Sony cameras.

We currently recommend:

We also support:

  • Sony Alpha a5000 Mirrorless Digital Camera
  • Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX500 Digital Camera
  • Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX80 Digital Camera
  • Sony DSC-QX10 Digital Camera Module for Smartphones

With testing, all Sony cameras supported by the Camera Remote API should be compatible.
