Due to big names like Google & Facebook investing hugely into 360° virtual tour technologies, they are growing fast in popularity. Compared to still photography & video, 360° virtual reality (VR) tours offer your visitor immersive interactivity with freedom to see areas that they want to see to a certain extent and not what the photographer/ videographer chose to show. 360° virtual reality (VR) tours provide a first person point of view of the space, a feeling of almost being there. Small spaces (think phone booths, small toilets) & spaces with very high ceilings (think palaces with ornate ceilings or paintings) can be extremely difficult to photograph as still images but are very good candidates to capture in 360°. It is very important that the walk throughs of the 360° virtual reality (VR) tours do not become a boring and a cumbersome experience. We have years of experience in creating professional bespoke 360° virtual reality (VR) tours for promoting business premises whether they are to go on your website or an app. We can also additionally upload the virtual tour to Google Street View (enhancing your "Google My Business" listing) and you can use panoramas from the virtual tour in your Facebook posts using Facebook360. We employ various shooting techniques including realistic hdr to overcome the dynamic range limitations.
Here are some ways you can use 360° virtual reality (VR) tours:
360° virtual reality (VR) tours require user interaction. Elements like navigation, video introduction, hotspots that open up windows displaying further relevant information using text/ images/ video/ audio etc can be added to create a truly engaging experience for your online visitors.
