NXT Capture, an imaging solutions provider for amusement parks and attractions, has announced that it has set a record pace of new customer acquisitions as it closes out 2019.
Along with a 100% client renewal rate, the company adds notable customers like Kennywood, Jenkinson’s Boardwalk, Living Shores, Pacific Park, Holiday World and KidZania among others to its client and partner roster.
A major growth contributor has been its Facial Recognition technology, which was awarded an IAAPA Brass Ring award in 2018. This unique feature is integrated across NXT Capture’s entire product line and complements the existing array of image association methods, such as barcode, RFID, and mobile SMS, all of which allow guests to collect and view all their photos seamlessly across an attraction.
“We are proud of the work our technology team has done to push the boundaries of what’s achievable within the image capture space,” said Brian Ramdat, President of NXT Capture.
Ramdat teases that their “latest capture product, which will be announced at IAAPA Expo later this month will wow our guests and create a sense of magical wonder, blurring the lines of reality and fantasy. We can’t wait to unveil it to the world.”
In July, the company also debuted the first-ever on-board ride video capture solution for a spinning coaster, Tidal Wave at Jenkinson’s Boardwalk. The system employs ten cameras mounted onto each car that records guests’ experience as they ride. Afterwards, the video is automatically uploaded and combined with a creative storyboard that guests can view, purchase, download, and share.
“Spinning coasters are fun for all ages; however, due to the spinning nature of each car, it’s been impossible to capture photos of guests using traditional image capture solutions. Our ride video platform solves this by capturing video and allowing guests to select a frame from any part of the video to be printed as a traditional still photo, as well as a unique video souvenir product. It truly is the best of both worlds,” said Ramdat.
NXT Capture are specialists in photo and video capture. The company provides creative design, retail support, technical support, and staffing services to theme parks, aquariums, and museums around the world. The focus is on capturing special moments for guests, whilst helping attractions access data in real-time, with custom-designed reports and monitoring, to help increase guest spending.
NXT Capture can be found at booth #3311 at the IAAPA Expo 2019 to showcase their latest technology.
