Whitech Picks Up Konica Minolta Customer Support

Since Konica Minolta’s announcement late last year that the company was getting out of the photo space, dealers have been worrying where they’d be able to turn for service and support. Owners of Konica Minolta’s Photo Link kiosks will be able to count on Whitech USA for service and support as of May 1.

According to Whitech USA’s president, Korosh Delnawaz, his company was the hardware and software producer for the Konica Minolta–branded Photo Link kiosks. “We are well-equipped to handle all technical support… as well as provide future upgrades,” says Delnawaz. For more information, check out the website at www.whitechusa.com.

Can Your Kiosk muvee?
mu•vee, n. (pronounced “mew-vee”):

A slick video production created in seconds using intelligent, automatic editing technology.

Want to offer your customers the ability to create an exciting video or “muvee” from their digital images (still and/or video) using the digital print kiosks you already have installed? You can with the muveeKiosk plug-in. The muveeKiosk plug-in does all the editing work, completely synced to the music’s beat. And your customers can choose from over 150 unique themes that are currently available. According to muvee’s founder and chief opportunities officer, Terence Swee, “Kiosks are great for printing a handful of your best images, but a muveeKiosk gives users a more meaningful way of enjoying all of their pictures—even the ones they don’t print—as well as any video clips they might have.” The Instant Personal Video pioneer, muvee already bundles its software with a myriad of products, including digital cameras and cameraphones. Kiosk makers can also license the muveeKiosk software development kit (SDK). Whitech Software Solutions has already jumped on the muvee bandwagon. The company has licensed the muveeKiosk SKD, with plans to integrate the service into its kiosks this summer. Check out the website at www.muvee.com or email kiosk@muvee.com for more details and information.
