For the past 10 years, leading studio photography has been created with photo editing software Capture One. With world-class tethering, state-of-the-art photo editing tools and the highest quality RAW processing, it’s been a staple in any photography studio.
Now, Capture One has introduced an “Enterprise” version which is specifically built for business and aligned to the way a photography studio works.
Learn how Enterprise Studios can actually create new value for studio photography with Capture One Enterprise.
Capture One Enterprise offers the same standard features as Capture One’s flagship product Capture One 20 – tailored to the needs of studio photography.
Built for business
Photographers are key to the success of any photography studio.
But what if the photography studio involves several photographers, studio managers, retouchers, quality assurance managers, project leaders, etc who need to collaborate, standardize and carry out the same workflows over and over again? What if those workflows also need to be integrated to other systems, eg. barcode scanners, PIM systems, digital asset management systems, ecommerce platforms etc?
Capture One Enterprise has been developed to address the challenges faced by studio photography and help any enterprise or e-commerce photography studio optimize their image production process and boost results across relevant KPI’s.
Value creation with Capture One Enterprise
Studio photography has huge value creation potential with Capture One Enterprise. By incorporating its enterprise-specific features into the workflow, it can improve KPI’s such as:
- “Time to Market” – optimizing the hours your photography studio spends on the image production process, from planning your image, to shoots, to publishing the final photo on your ecommerce platform.
- “Cost per image” – Optimizing each step in your studio photography process can dramatically increase your efficiency and reduce your costs
- “Reduce Risk” – Secure your studio photography and image production to reduce errors and costs, thanks to enterprise exclusive features such as Image back-Up, License Management, MDM support etc.
This is achieved via enterprise features such as the Barcode scanner tool, Advanced Guides, Next Capture Backup, Next Capture Keywords, Next Capture Metadata, Tool Locks, Capture Pilot with Enterprise enhancements and Dedicated Studio workspaces.
To learn more about how Capture One Enterprise creates value for a large photography studio, download our case study from Boozt, a leading Scandinavian online retailer – which cut its photo production time by 50 percent after implementing Capture One Enterprise.
Once your studio has implemented Capture One Enterprise and begun implementing its standard features in your workflows, there are further opportunities to intensify value creation by automating workflows and integrating Capture One Enterprise into your IT infrastructure. You can do this by implementing:
- Workflow enhancement (an automation feature within Capture One)
- Integrations (extension or automation interfacing with another app)
Customized solutions can maximize value, too
Your photography studio might also have very specialized needs – here, customized solutions can generate value for your studio photography. For example, ultra-accurate color profiling can assist in achieving one critical KPI in particular:
“Reduce product returns” – Color profiling optimization on true color reproduction can reduce the rate of goods returned due to discrepancies in color between the actual product and the image.
Capture One offers individual color profiles for businesses, so you can reduce editing time and save on retoucher costs with fine-tuned color profiling for the most popular e-commerce cameras used by photography studios. Minimize color discrepancies and meet the demands of specialist product and studio photography with more accurate colors out-of-the-box.
These are just some of the exclusive features designed for studio photography – get in touch with the Enterprise team to learn more and discover where Capture One Enterprise can specifically meet the demands of your business.
