NXT Capture Wins IAAPA's Best New Product Award for Ride Video
ORLANDO, FL November 11, 2019 – NXT Capture, imaging solutions provider for amusement parks and attractions industry, 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 already impressive client and partner roster.
A major growth contributor has been its Facial Recognition technology, which was awarded IAAPA’s prestigious 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. “Our 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 which 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 Brian Ramdat.
