In addition to the variety of interesting photo products, visitors also have the opportunity to get to know Picanova’s own 3D scanning technology. This attraction is unique at photokina: Visitors can receive a three-dimensional full body scan in just 4 seconds. This 3D scan is then built into a digital model that visitors can view as a 3D avatar on their mobile phone. This model can also be ordered directly as an original miniature figure, which is manufactured using state-of-the-art 3D printing.
Picanova also cooperates with well-known companies in the context of the trade fair. In Hall 5.2 at booth F-010 / G-011, RedBull and Huawei have teamed up to build a halfpipe where professional skaters will present their skills and can be photographed by the visitors. A 12×5 m by Picanova printed wallpaper hangs above the halfpipe. For Huawei’s premium brand, Honor, 18 images were printed on 80x60cm forex, which had been taken with Honor mobile phones. With those collaborations Picanova once again demonstrates that it can offers much more than just photo products for end consumers.
