Scales to Any Size Event or Studio

Basic Event Setup: Capture your photo from the tethered camera and then auto print it at the size you choose. You also have the ability to add a border or background to a greenscreen image and then select a pre-determined package to send to the printer. Images are uploadable to online ordering sites like Photoreflect.com
Advanced Event Setup: Adds a wireless router and wireless transmitter to the basic setup. Gives you the freedom to roam about the event and have more than one camera sending images to Darkroom. If you like, you can expand this setup to handle larger volume via the addition of extra printers
Large Event Setup: Using Darkroom Pro as a server, scale up to very large events and enable customers to browse images at Presentation stations running Darkroom Core. You can add from 1 to an unlimited number of presentation stations, depending upon your OS. Add 2 or more capture stations and tether multiple cameras. You'll need a network switch to link all of the computers
Small Studio Setup: Using Darkroom Pro as a server also gives you the ability to efficiently manage a small portrait studio. By setting up a capture station in the camera room and a sales station in a presentation room, you can continue shooting while another employee is showing and selling. Using onsite printers, you can deliver portraits in just minutes, or utilize Photoreflect for online ordering and a Labtricity lab to order prints and specialty items. Darkroom will also track sales and orders. You can expand this setup with additional capture stations and sales stations, in order to increase capacity as required. Requires network switch to link all of the computers
Large Studio Setup: By adding extra capture and sales stations, Darkroom can grow with your studio and increase capacity to keep up with demand. Increase the volume and speed of onsite printing with the addition of a minilab system managed by Darkroom, while ordering specialty items from a Labtricity lab. Requires a network switch to link all of the computers
Large Chain Studio Setup: Via duplication of the small studio setup, Darkroom is capable of linking with a private Labtricity server and any number of mini labs--creating a nationwide chain of studios with your own high-volume photo lab. Requires multiple small studio setups
