Carlab, experts of the automotive imagery
« In just a few years, Carlab has became a major actor in the automotive digital photography. With its photo studios for cars, the company equips the automotive sector professionals with top-notch tools.
Indeed, Carlab has quickly became the sector leader in Europe. Several years of research and development helped to create an innovative photo studio, without any turntable, producing 12 photos of a vehicle combined in a 360° view. The absence of any motorised turntable makes the studio structure easier to install, cheaper and requiring less maintenance.
The studio’s price includes its shipping, its installation, its setting-up and a user training session. In this sector, Carlab is also the less expensive on the market. […] »

« the largest reconditioning centre for second-hand vehicles ».
In early August, near Poitiers, the Emil Frey group has opened its CRVO, a reconditioning centre for second-hand vehicles, on more than 7 000 dedicated m2. The centre is equipped with CARLAB photo studios, a powerful equipment, perfectly suited to the group’s needs for rapidity, quality and efficiency.
« Today, online sales are developing and we must go out of the usual paradigm. We are standardising quality and transparency with this centre: the more beautiful is the exposure, the more we have chances to sell quickly and at the right price. »
« Two 360 degrees photo studios are installed at the back of the centre, permanently handled by two photographers. It is the last step of the reconditioning process before returning the vehicle to the dealership. »

« Original: the Photomaton™ of the car
Just browse ads on Leboncoin to understand the phenomenon: some photos are real sales-grabbers! Hence the interest in the first « photo booth » for cars! Named the Carlab concept, this is a photo studio designed to highlight each vehicle: uniform light diffused from a stretched canvas ceiling, turntable to shoot the car from all angles, including the interior…
The result is very clean! For the time reserved for pros, Photomaton will open next month to individuals at Auto Clean in Compiegne (60) and Corbi in Montendre (17). »

« Increasingly photogenic second-hand cars »
« For a long time, the repackaging of VOs has been based on two major issues, time and volume, in order to optimise costs and satisfy the customer. Now, it is advisable to improve both the speed and the quality. The quality of the preparation, but also shots, to enhance the attractiveness of vehicles among the myriad of ads online. It is no longer a question of offering ten or twenty interior and exterior illustrations, as suggested by the classifieds sites and the consultants, but rather to stand out from current practices on the Web by opting for a more modern approach. (…)
For the company Carlab, which offers industrial photo labs for logisticians, repackaging specialists and distribution groups, the interest goes beyond France, since it develops projects with Belgian, Spanish, German and English groups. « The strength of a photo booth is that it provides a totally sanitised and standardised environment around the vehicle, » claims the company.
