Virtual Tour Interfaces

When we refer to virtual tours, we are talking about the individual 360 tours. For some clients, these individual virtual tours are all they need, perhaps because they only want to commission one virtual tour, or sometimes because they wish to just have text links to the virtual tours. However, for an increasing number of companies looking to commission virtual tours, an interactive interface adds value to the 360 virtual tours, providing their viewers with a positive and engaging brand experience.

Marketing Your Hotel Online

When potential customers hit your hotel’s website – what persuades them to book with you? Is it your brand, your star rating, cheaper room rates, better rooms? According to a study, 69% of people who book hotels online rated visuals as highly important in their selection of a hotel – coming above other criteria such as star ratings, hotel brands, loyalty programmes and even customer reviews.

Virtual Tours and the Disability Discrimination Act

There are almost 10 million disabled people in Britain, and legislation in the form of the Disability Discrimination Act (DDA) aims to ensure that all disabled people are given a fair deal in everyday life. Much of the Disability Discrimination Act focuses on the duties of service providers (shops, museums, galleries, libraries, archives and so forth) to disabled users of their services. This is particularly relevant for museums and galleries, who must “make reasonable adjustments and provide auxiliary aids and services to make services more accessible” and comply with the law. However, a reasonable alternative is permissible in many instances where direct access isn’t possible, and a virtual tour is an excellent way of fulfilling this brief, giving users an alternative way of finding and manipulating information.

W3C Web Accessibility

You have invested in the creation of a fantastic website, and are considering adding virtual tours to create exciting content for your users. However, a large percentage of users could be cut off from the experiences you have worked to achieve. People with disabilities such as dyslexia or impaired vision, learning disabilities or even a broken arm may have difficulty using the internet and reaching the content on websites. Technologies are able to assist those with disabilities in delivering internet content, but if your website is incompatible with these technologies, then they simply won’t see it. There is also a legal implication – 2 companies have already been sued for discrimination due to the lack of accessibility on their websites. Both companies settled out of court.

Understanding and Commissioning a Virtual Tour – a Beginner’s Guide

What is a virtual tour? A virtual tour is a complete 360-degree view of a space. The user can feel as if they’re standing within a space, and then can control their movement within the area. They can look up above them, at the floor below them, and all around. Users are also able to zoom in and out, giving them the ability to focus in on areas of interest. Each virtual tour is usually made up from a number of photographs which are ‘stitched’ together… Click the link to read the beginner’s guide to virtual tours.
