Tether Tools just announced the introduction of the Vu Booth – a simple, portable and affordable photo booth solution for weddings and events. Designed with photographer ease in mind, the Vu Booth serves many photo display needs, travels easy and affords the photographer various options for set up.
By providing a modular booth setup that leverages Tether Tools’ Vu Monitor Mounts, the Vu Booth helps photographers offer a photo booth option to their clients without having to invest in a major casing/housing. The Vu Booth system includes a choice of one of the Vu mounts – Studio Vu, Local Vu or Go Vu Mount – and includes a Camera Platform, Articulating Arm and Rock Solid ProClamp. The system is designed to utilize a monitor, DSLR and studio stand of choice.
The Tether Tools Vu Booth sets up in minutes. Easily connect any VESA compliant monitor to the Vu Monitor mount of choice. Once mounted, the monitor can easily rotate from landscape to portrait position. Then connect the Pro Clamp and Articulating Arm to a tripod leg or studio stand column. The camera platform mounts any camera, which can be positioned on top, below or to the side of the monitor. When not being used as a photo booth the same equipment can be dismantled and utilized in a number of other capacities and situations in the photography and video workflow.
Choosing the right Vu Mount
The Vu Booth offers 3 different mount options – Studio Vu, Local Vu or Go Vu – to connect the monitor, depending on size/weight, to the stand of choice. The Studio Vu mounts easily to a studio stand’s standard 5/8” (16mm) baby stud and has a maximum weight capacity of 80 lbs. (36.5kg)*. The Local Vu mounting options include 1/4”-20 thread to position on a tripod’s ballhead or panhandle, 3/8” tripod mount, 5/8” (16mm) baby stud as well as a built-in Arca-style compatibility. The Go Vu offers a 1/4”-20 thread or a tripod’s ballhead or panhandle as well as built-in Arca-style compatibility. The maximum weight capacity of both the Local Vu and Go Vu is 35 lbs (15.88kg).
“Photo Booths can be large, cumbersome and expensive. Tether Tools VU Booth introduces a solution that allows photographers to integrate gear they already have on hand to create a portable and streamlined photo booth for their clients. With the Vu Booth, photographers can select photo booth software of choice and users can see their images immediately, generating instant gratification and encouraging more event attendees to participate.” said Josh Simons, President of Tether Tools.
