A virtual tour is a simulation of an existing location, usually composed of a sequence of videos or still images. It may also use other multimedia elements such as sound effects, music, narration, and text.
Per 3DVista – Immersion is the perception of being physically present in a non-physical world. The immersive format displays your panorama as a spherical image that appears to surround the user. By converting your panorama into an immersive virtual tour you allow your users to navigate freely within the panorama (look left, right, up down, move from one panorama to the next one as if you would move from one room to the other, or open other media and info boxes integrated into the panorama). Immersiveness lets your users virtually step into the scenery and navigate their way through your tour.
Virtual reality can be used for almost anything. Whether you are selling your home or yacht, showcasing your restaurant or bed and breakfast, virtual reality can give customers a sense of the space from anywhere. If you have some thoughts or ideas on what you would like to do, but not sure if they are possible, call us, we would be happy to collaborate with you. Having an attractive or welcoming space will certainly persuade customers to visit in person.
It varies, depending on the number of rooms and size of space, but generally a 2,000sq ft home might take approximately 1 hour to capture images.
Depends. There is no typical cost however, the minimum cost would be approximately $79.00 (customer provided 360° images) with the average being $200.00 which includes 1 virtual tour (15 360° images taken by us).
You own all rights to the images. The images will be published on 360etours.com and our YouTube channel. You may elect to opt-out if you wish.
No, you can either provide your 360° images to us or we can take them for you. You decide, pricing varies depending on which option you choose.
We pride ourselves on providing tours of the highest quality, so we use equipment to reflect this. There are some 360° photographers that will use what are called “One-Shot” cameras, which are a quick and easy solution, but provide less resolution. This makes images look blurry and grainy on larger screens.
We use a full frame Nikon D800e camera with a 10.5mm fisheye lens connected to a professional 360° tripod head. 9 photos per angle (with 6 angles) to create an HDR image, which is then edited, stitched together and finally imported into the 360° software to complete the tour.
High-Dynamic-Range imaging (HDR) is a high dynamic range (HDR) technique used in imaging and photography to reproduce a greater dynamic range of luminosity than what is possible with standard digital imaging or photographic techniques.
The Nikon D800e captures images at 36.3 Megapixel per image.
