Virtual Tours: Exploring without taking a single step

Sometimes photographs and videos just won't cut it when you need to really need to experience and explore the subject matter. 360° and 3D technology have opened up a new realm of video production and viewing. You can immerse yourself in any place in the world without taking a single step.

360° Virtual Tours

A Virtual Tour is a collection of 360° panoramic photographs, linked to each other though clickable objects or areas, to provide the viewer with an immersive experience of the environment of these photographs. What sets Virtual Tours apart from 360° Video is their non-linear movement - meaning there is no forward motion of the video forcing the viewer along. A Virtual Tour provides an immersive space where the viewer can stay and explore an environment at their leisure.

Another feature of Virtual Tours is the use of hotspots (or clickable areas) on an individual photograph that can link various spaces within the tour. Hotspots can also link to additional comments or information about a certain object or area within a specific photograph, like a video about an artwork on the wall, for example.

To create ambience in a photograph, audio or videos can be added. Perhaps to create a moving, life-like fireplace; or using audio to mimic the background sounds of a certain setting, such as those associated with a shopping mall or a beach.

Virtual Tours offer the viewer absolute control of their viewpoint. They use less bandwidth than 360° Video and can connect hundreds of photographs, making them an extremely versatile platform.

3D Virtual Tours

3D Virtual Tours are just like 360° Virtual Tours, with the exception that the environment is digitally rendered. They are a more flexible option than 360° Virtual Tours, which only present what already exists in the space.

Virtual Tours work well for:

  • Retail Space
  • House Sales or Rentals
  • Tourism (Popular Attractions)
  • Hospitality (Hotels or Restaurants)
  • Facilities or Factories
  • Education or Induction
