The 14-month-old startup bags the “Special Recognition Award”
The 10th edition of the Visual 1st Conference, for the first time in 3 years, brought together Photo & Video businesses at the Golden Gate Club, San Francisco on the 4th & 5th of October 2022. Visual 1st is the premier global conference that promotes innovation and partnerships in the photo and video ecosystem.
“Zingcam brings an element of wonder, whimsy, and delight to how consumers can enjoy viewing their visual memories as photo prints as well as fun videos,” said Anna Dickson, Visual Lead, Google Image Search at Google.
Zingcam, a product of Flamingos Technologies Inc, is a 14-month-old startup that won the “Special Recognition” award for their product that enables ‘video prints’. Zingcam’s product offers a natural upgrade for all photo printing companies around the world as they incorporate Photo, Video & AR into physical prints. Their tech allows users to upload a photo and a video, with the option of choosing from a multitude of 3D assets to embellish their video. Once that is done, the user can get the photo printed that, when scanned plays the video in an AR experience where memories last a lifetime.
The evolution of content consumption and how Short Form Video was taking attention away from Photo apps was a hot topic at the 2022 conference. This discussion played to the strengths of Zingcam as their product was the perfect blend between Photo, Video and AR and the growth of the industry is such that with the technology available now, it is as good a time as ever for video customisation on physical printed products. Zingcam’s best-in-class AR engine brings life-like experiences alive for its users and they have already crossed a landmark number of over 1 Million creations with their audiences in the United States and India.
“With the world moving towards video-first content engagement, providing a video personalisation layer on print products was a necessity. That’s exactly what our product solves,” said Malhar Patil, Co-Founder of Flamingos Technologies. As per the latest reports from the company, Zingcam is now fully operational in the United States and is available for collaboration with Photo Printing Companies. They have already partnered with customer favourites likePrintique and Furrlio (Etsy Store) who’ve had customers that raved about their experiences with their newly acquired AR-infused prints.
The 2022 Visual 1st Conference laid and strengthened the foundation for what’s to come in the photo and video ecosystem and for Zingcam, it’s been a great start that only looks even more promising in the road ahead.
