Commonly consumers expect some kind of value exchange for their data. One way to provide that is through a branded media capture experience. Here consumers enter information and in exchange receive a photo, video, animated .gif or other media.
The Media Capture Module is a series of 5 workflow steps that can be added to any workflow. Using the iPad or iPhone's front or rear camera it captures pictures, videos or other media based on workflow buttons.
A Media Capture Module will not work without both a Media Page and either a Media Email or Media SMS experience. The media page will host the image while the media email/SMS sent to the consumer contains a link to the media page.
This module is added by pressing the "Add New Step" button at the left of the step ribbon along the top of the editor.
The five workflow steps of the module are tied together and cannot be reordered. Any cosmetic changes made in Page Settings will be applied to all pages of the module. In addition to the cosmetic page settings, there are several other unique options to customize the module.
In Input/Output Settings you can choose if the media will be captured with the front or rear camera. Front refers to the on the screen side; rear refers to the back of the device, opposite to the screen. Keep in mind that rear camera works well if there will be a dedicated staff taking photos of participants, while the front camera works better if participants will be taking the photos themselves.
Capture type indicates if you are taking a single photo or a series of photos which will be strung together as an animated .gif.
Under Media Sharing you can choose the method of delivery for the photo. By default Email & SMS option is used and consumers can choose which one they want.
Lastly under Photo Overlay you can upload a partially transparent image that will be put on top of a consumer's photo. This overlay commonly has some sort of branding and generally only takes up the edges or bottom of the images, else it will cover up the participant's photo!
