Selling : Events Photography Sales PC (P.O.A)
I have for sale 1 high specification events photography PC.
This PC was custom built as a high spec sales station for use in the events photography industry, It features 1 PC base unit with up to 8 independent workstations and was built in summer 2012 for high volume outdoor events (although can be partially set up for smaller events).
The system runs Photoparata viewing software allowing customers to browse and purchase photos on a website style interface. It is easy to use with each customer workstation comprising of a flat-screen monitor and mouse only. Sales are then administered from the sales station allowing printing of custom numbered invoices with thumbnail preview.
This system uses a software solution to allow 1 PC to run 8 independent workstations. This has several benefits as follows:
Minimal power consumption, we ran the entire system from a 1000kVA generator ( less than 3 amps total load) and 1300va UPS.
Compact size, we carried the entire setup including gazebo, furniture, generator, printers and consumables, camping equipment and 2 people in 1 estate car.
Minimal set-up time, only monitor and mouse for each sales station and no complex networking / multiple PC's.
Reliable set-up, no networks to fault find.
All customer workstations can be controlled from the sales stations mouse and keyboard.
Built for use in a 10' (3m) gazebo.
The PC base unit has 4 dual output graphics cards, high speed solid state hard-drive, high spec AMD quad core processor, dual DVD burners and built in flash card reader. Software includes Windows 7, Photoparata and Photoshop elements. This is a windows based system, not Linux like many of the alternatives and subsequently has greater software compatibility and recognized user friendly interfaces.
I am sure you will appreciate this is a unique system built to specification when we initially specified the system a national PC chain said it could not be done, we took specialist advice to build this. It is up for sale as I have decided not to pursue this career path following a disagreement with my former business partner. The system has only been used for about 8 events and has proved very popular and highly successful allowing us to generate revenues in excess of £500 on site per day plus follow-up web sales.
The sale will include the following items:
PC base unit,
UPS (for short power interruptions / protection),
All necessary cabling,
Keyboards and Mice,
Furniture for setup (if required or will be disposed of).
Given the nature of this item it is P.O.A, please contact me to talk through more details / specifics of the item. I would encourage viewing as it really does need to be seen although I will require some notice to arrange a suitable space.
