Applications: Web, Multimedia, Video and Print

360° interactive images are most commonly seen on websites. However, they can also be inserted into on-screen sales presentations (PowerPoint®), downloadable PDF documents, or multimedia productions (delivered on CD/DVD). They can also be converted into classic timeline-based video (without interactivity). Interactive 360° images are created from extremely high resolution panoramic images (up to 73 megapixels or more). These images can be repurposed for print media, such as brochures and wall-sized prints or banners.

Flash Technology: Best For 360° Images on Computers

A number of formats are available for 360° interactive images, but none are as powerful and easy to implement than Flash technology. The free Adobe Flash Player software is currently the most widely distributed multimedia platform on the Internet. It allows offers great visual quality, fluid interaction, domain protection, as well as embedded ambient sounds, voice narration, and custom graphics.

HTML5 Technology: For 360° Images on Mobile Devices

To maximize effectiveness on both computers and mobile devices, the device can be detected and the appropriate format (Flash or HTML5) downloaded to the viewer. The advent of mobile devices with Internet access provides the opportunity to extend 360° image to small screens. Although, the immersive effect is somewhat diminished on a small screen, a new option is available: gyro control. The view is controlled by physically moving the device instead of using a mouse or the touch screen.

Immerse the Viewer a Your Virtual Showroom

The purpose of this technology is to immerse the visitor in a scene... while sitting in front of a computer monitor or a big TV screen. This is a great way to get a prospective client to experience products or services that include, are used or are performed in a particular environment. These include a hotel room, a museum exhibit, a retail showroom or display area, a vehicle's interior, a dentist's chair, an amusement park, a tourist attraction, a commercial or residential property, etc. Other applications can include employee training and product operation simulation for your clients.

The Whole Scene, in ONE Image | Multiple Scenes in One Window

A single photograph provides one angle or perspective of a scene. Multiple photographs can provide multiple points of view. However, if you want to provide an immersive experience (a feeling of being in the scene), a 360° interactive image is the answer. Better yet, a series of linked 360° images (also called a true "virtual tour") can really give the impression of being physically in a particular location. Adding ambient sounds or stereo-like sounds can add even more realism and help visitors appreciate the environment.

Not Video, But Better in Many Ways

An interactive 360° image is not a video. It is interactive, it runs forward/backwards/up/down, it allows visitors tozoom-in and out, it give the visitor viewing options, it pauses and then restarts automatically, it is easily customizable, it can be resized without recreating the file, it does not require a crew of people and weeks to produce, it does not require huge bandwidth, it downloads quickly... it is everything a video is not.

Real Images - Not Computer-Generated

360° VR images are faster and less costly to produce than synthetic images generated entirely in 3D software. The images are real because they are created from actual pictures of the location, they are not gimmicky or surreal. 3D images may require specialized plug-ins in order to be viewable.
