WLAN Foto Access Point

The WLAN Foto Access Point was developed specifically for the photo stores and transfers photos that are stored on phones and tablets within seconds.

Due to the constantly falling market share of compact cameras and the increasing importance of mobile phones and tablets as a substitute for cameras, a simple and efficient solution for the transfer of photos in the photo stores today is of the utmost importance.

Functional description:

A Wireless Access Point from the manufacturer "TP-LINK" is equipped with a 3GB USB stick which is programmed with the software. This unit has been turned into a system to re-serve as a photo-receiving device for mobile phones and tablets. The WLAN Foto Access Point creates in the photo store a local Wi-Fi. This WLAN can only be used to send customers photos. Access to the Internet and the internal network is not possible. The customer connects their phone / tablet with the WLAN Foto access point and opens the Internet browser where the application opens on the display. The application then allows the customer to select the photos on their mobile phone / tablet and to send them. The transmission of a picture is done in seconds.
For every phone / tablet a separate folder on the USB stick is created where the transferred picture(s) will be stored. The WLAN Foto Access Point is connected via a network cable to the router / switch via the network of the photo store. From all computers / photo lab which are connected to the internal company network can now get access to the sent images to allow the operator to print the images or carry out other services requested by their customer.

- Massive time savings for staff, since no support required if all the downloaded photos must be searched / selected on a photo kiosk / computer with the customer
 
- Ensures high discretion, as the staff only see the pictures the customer sends
 
- No investment in photo kiosk stations for data acquisition of images from Mobile Phones / Tablets required
 
- Faster data transfer than Bluetooth
 
- Faster data transmission than sending photos by e-mail (limiting the amount of data e-mail)

- Existing photo kiosk stations can be used more efficiently and are less time taken up whilst customers selecting their images.
 
- Images may be processed more cost-effectively on your own equipment than using eg devices from third-party solutions with expensive consumables
