The ground-breaking photo mosaic station with the fastest return on investment in the event rentals industry.
Creates jaw-dropping digital & physical mosaics from live event photos in real-time. Produces top quality masterpieces using an exclusive, state-of-the-art algorithm.
The Photo Mosaic Wall creates digital & physical mosaics from live event photos in real-time. The photos are automatically fetched from Instagram, Twitter, on-site photo booths, an on-site photographer’s camera, and more.
The photo mosaic wall makes everyone at the event feel like once you look at the big picture, we’re all in it together. From up-close, you see individual photos – further back, the mosaic is revealed.
In a ‘physical setup’: The Photo Mosaic Wall automatically prints photos as stickers. Guests can engage in the interactive experience by placing their photo stickers on the mosaic board.
In a ‘digital setup’: The mosaic generation process is either projected (using a projector) or displayed on a large-screen TV. The photos transition into their place on the mosaic in real-time with a 3D effect.
The end result: A beautiful mosaic of photos from the event.
The algorithm behind the Photo Mosaic Wall is a global breakthrough with exclusively developed image analysis functions. The advanced technology allows you to produce true mosaic masterpieces in real-time without abuse of destructive techniques like opacity reduction, colorization and photo repetition.
Analysis of each new photo is comprehensive and instant. In just a hundredth of a second, it applies in-depth facial recognition, color profiling, smart cropping, time-related calculations, and custom user preferences to determine the ideal location of the photo on the mosaic with minimum or no destructive manipulations.
Three different working modes are supported by the algorithm: FIFO (First photo IN > First photo OUT), a mode that focuses on participant interaction, lets participants stick their photos right after they’re fetched. MAX MATCH, a mode that focuses on the ultimate quality of the final mosaic, can momentarily hold photos to allow for better matches. GREEN SCREEN, a mode that expects green screen photos and replaces the green background with the final photo’s pixels – leaving the subject un-manipulated!
The Photo Mosaic Wall is capable of fetching live event photos from a variety of sources that can be used simultaneously.
Pick a fun hashtag for the event and advertise it around the venue. Guests can then take a selfie, tag it, ‘tweet’ it and have it automatically fetched by the Photo Mosaic Wall.
You can use your company’s Instagram account to take photos of the activity, tag these photos with a unique hashtag and have them fetched automatically by the Photo Mosaic Wall.
The ‘PC-Agent’ is a separate, versatile software that wirelessly connects between on-site photo sources and the Photo Mosaic Wall – fetching and forwarding freshly-taken photos from on-site hashtag printers, photo booths, photographer’s cameras, cloud storage services and more.
A fun fact about the PC-Agent is that it doesn’t require an internet connection or cables to connect between devices. All it needs is a local wireless connection or a hotspot connection to be shared between all of the devices.
Each PC-Agent also keeps track of fetched files from each individual device and sends only the latest photos to the Photo Mosaic Wall.
Get those professionally taken photos automatically sent from the photographer’s camera directly to the Photo Mosaic Booth. All you need is the photographer to take photos with a wireless SD card connected to the local wireless network or hotspot and you’ve got yourself professional grade photos synced with the mosaic activation in real-time.
Have any photo booths at the event? These photos can be a wonderful addition to the mosaic activation. Simply install a PC-Agent on the computer running the photo booth software, select the photos folder and it will take care of the sync automatically.
If you already own and use a hashtag printer service, the Photo Mosaic Wall can fetch and use these photos for the mosaic activation as well. Simply install a PC-Agent on the computer connected to the printer, select a folder to sync and the agent will take care of the rest.
You can have the computer sync photos from any other service that you’d like (e.g. synced folders of Google Drive/Dropbox ) and the PC-Agent will automatically send them to the Photo Mosaic Wall as they come.
A digital setup of the Photo Mosaic Wall can serve as a practically effortless, yet still amazing event attraction. Simply hook up a computer with Foto Master’s Photo Mosaic Wall software to a large screen TV or projector. Setup your fetching sources (social-media and PC-Agents) and you’re done! Enjoy the show.
If you already own a photo booth you can easily up-sale it with a digital Photo Mosaic Wall setup and almost no further efforts on your side. This holds true as well if you’re a professional photographer. Actually, it’s true even if you’re not in the event rentals business yet. It’s such a powerful and easy option.
The Photo Mosaic Wall software will automatically transition new event photos onto their ideal location with a 2D or a 3D animation of your choice. In time periods where there are no new photos to fetch, the digital mosaic will keep displaying animations of random photos “peeling off” and then reappearing in their place. We call this the ‘Mosaic Slideshow’ mode.
It’s the absolute ultimate keepsake for event hosts and creates a meaningful experience like no other for event guests. The physical setup of the Photo Mosaic Wall allows you to create stunning mosaics on physical boards ranging from small to gigantic.
Event guests can take part in the creation process, place their photos on the mosaic wall and see them become a part of the whole. The final mosaic board can be framed and kept by the event’s hosts as a souvenir that doubles as a work of art.
The basic physical mosaic setup consists of a board with a numbered grid, a single printer, printing consumables, and of course, a laptop with the Photo Mosaic Wall software installed and configured for the event. Foto Master offers direct supply of all of the hardware including additional items: A designated, modular LEGO wall. A selection of frames in different sizes. Four different sizes of numbered grid boards.
The Photo Mosaic Wall software also includes an ‘Event Simulator’ that helps you choose the optimal grid size, the amount of consumables you will need and their cost based on the event’s length and other factors. Read more about the ‘Event Simulator’ in the next section.
We love giving our customers lots of power & control so they can stretch the limits and do amazing things with our products. The Photo Mosaic Wall software lets you control pretty much anything (if you’d like to). Here are some of the included options: Set any final image, algorithm mode (FIFO/Max Match/Green Screen), folder monitoring rate, printing settings, mosaic aspect ratio, amount of tiles, tile size, tile opacity threshold, photo sources settings and more.
The software also includes an event simulator. This section is designed to make your preparations for an event a fun & easy experience. The simulator will automatically calculate expected expenses for printing consumables, provide best practices regarding selection of grid size, tiles sizes and amounts according to the specific event’s specification.
Once the activation is over the software will automatically generate a digital file of the final mosaic image in a resolution of up to 27K.
