Windows 10 Creator’s Update 1803

The newest Windows 10 Creator’s Update 1803 is currently causing issues with if you use dslrBooth software with two monitors. Windows will open the main window on one monitor and the settings/template editor/green screen settings on another monitor.

If you use multiple monitors, please do not update to Windows 10 Creator’s Update 1803 as of yet. We are working on a workaround to this Windows bug as well as waiting on Windows’ additional updates that are likely to address this.

GDPR and Our Apps

General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), comes into effect in the EU on May 25. This new legislation is all about giving you greater security, transparency, and control of your personal data online—a principle we are fully on board with.

The upcoming changes only impact those in the European Union, but we believe data security is important everywhere. In support of the new regulation, we have updated our Privacy Policy to address the new legislation.

Additionally, we’ve made the following changes to assist our European customers (also available to all other customers) to comply with GDPR standards:

  • Effective today, all our sites and services are only accessible over HTTPS to ensure that any information you transmit to and from our services or while on our website is encrypted and secure.
  • You can now download an entire album as well as reports of sharing activity from fotoShare Cloud (right to access). To enable download of an entire album, login to fotoshare Cloud, then go to Event > Settings > Enable Download Album. Album must be public. You’ll see a download icon on the album’s public page. Download album is disabled for private albums.
  • You can delete an entire album and all its shares from fotoShare Cloud (aka your right to be forgotten). Event > Select All > Trash Can. For shares: Event > Shares > Delete All.
  • For every new product and enhancement, we’re proactively applying the Privacy by Design principles.
  • We’re applying GDPR standards to all data not just EU personal data. That way, you will be well positioned with data protection regulatory frameworks around the world.

Depending on the specifics of your business, there are various other GDPR obligations that may apply. The above information is dslrBooth’s interpretation of GDPR and its requirements as of the date of publication.  Please note that not all interpretations or requirements of the GDPR are well-settled and its application is fact and context specific.  This information should not be relied upon as legal advice or to determine how GDPR applies to your business or organization. We encourage you to seek guidance of a qualified professional with regard to how the GDPR applies specifically to your business or organization and how to ensure compliance. This information is provided “as-is” and may be updated or changed without notice.

Other Newly Added Features to fotoShare Cloud

  • In addition to automatic uploads from photo booth apps, upload other images to your event albums such as original or custom edited photos. (Available for Plus and Business plans)
  • Exporting shares no longer requires the use of Flash.

Customer Showcase: dslrBooth powers video booth for Star Wars Unicef Event

2Social Exposure located in Melbourne, Australia recently used the dslrBooth software for a video booth at a charity event for Unicef and Star Wars.

At the Powerhouse Museum in Sydney, Australia, Star Wars Ultimate Fan Weekend brought in 22,000 Star War fans. Social Exposure challenged the guests to record a video doing their best Chewbacca Roar. Each public post, like or share on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter tagged with the hashtag #RoarForChange, raised a $1 donation towards Unicef. The campaign reached its ultimate goal of one million dollars in just over 24 hours! 

Social Exposure used an open booth set up equipped with a Surface Pro tablet and Canon T5i along with external microphone and LED panel. Using the Virtual Attendant in dslrBooth, Social Exposure added real Chewbacca sounds to entertain the attending guests.
