Features of A Virtual Tour
What A Virtual Tour Is?
A spherical photograph that is able to capture a complete scene and gives users the ability to move around virtually. It can be viewed from a internet browser making it easily accessible and the field of view can be manipulated in different ways to help users look around. The 3 ways are:
– Pan: Rotate around in a 360 degree view.
– Tilt: Look up and down, to see the floor beneath you.
– Zoom: Able to look closer at details that you cannot see from a distance.
Main reason for having a virtual tour is to show clients a location at its best without constantly having it setting up.
Where Can Virtual Tours Be Used?
In a variety of locations such as schools to show classroom sizes and facilities. Golf Courses to show club house and the course for people to see the difficulty. Car, Plane and boats interiors to show all the amenities they have inside. Hotels to show room sizes and window views.
Our service is to capture your location in the highest quality to give your clients the best experience. We use modern equipment to capture high resolution and maximum sharpness for highest details for viewing up close. To capture the light variation at a location we use a technique call HDR (High Dynamic Range), this is when multiple photographs are taken at different exposures and converted into one photograph that will show details in shadows and highlights, commonly used to see through windows when normally you would be unable. To finish we use professional retouchers that are able to tidy and clean up your scenes to make them look their best for your clients.
