VIRTUTOUR's virtual tours offer a way of showing a full and complete representation of an environment in order that the viewer is able to see a complete 360 image. The viewer can take control of the image and control it with their computer. The virtual tours can be either full 360 images or partial 360s where only a smaller portion of the image is able to be viewed. The advantages of the latter is it allows the company to only present to the viewer the part of the environment it wants the viewer to see.

VIRTUTOUR's virtual tours are created by using a system composed of a hi-end digital capture system and involves shooting a sequence of photos until all the scene has been captured. The amount of pictures taken depends on the focal length of the lens and the camera lens. After the photos have been taken a process known as stitching is then applied where the images are put together by specialist programs that identify similar areas in the photos and then lines then up accordingly.The final stage is to output the resulting images to either print or the internet where your customers are able to view and interact with them.

Uses of VIRTUTOUR's virtual tours include both commercial and non commercial projects. All of the following can benefit in some way from a virtual tour of their premises:Hotels, wedding venues, conference venues, bars & restaurants, health clubs, leisure clubs, car interiors, clubs, showrooms, shops

Using the very latest in digital imaging techniques VIRTUTOUR produce stunning panoramic photography that will captures your hotel's rooms and facilities conveying to your potential customers the magnificence of your rooms and facilities.

Panoramic Photography was the original term used for capturing images with elongated fields of view. It is also sometimes known as wide format photography. Usually an image with a field of view similar to the human eye may be termed panoramic. This generally means the image is at least twice as wide as it is high. The resulting images take the form of a wide strip. Depending on how the image has been captured some panoramic images have aspect ratios between 4:1 and 10:1 covering fields of view of up to 360 degrees

Panoramic photography really came into its own when flexible film was invented in 1888 at which point lots of different kinds of cameras were introduced. In modern times though the term panoramic photography also refers to the Advanced Photo System (APS) cameras which use the word "panoramic" to define any print format with a wide aspect ratio and not just photos that have a large field of view. In fact, a typical APS camera in its panoramic mode, where its zoom lens is at its shortest focal length of around 24 mm, has a field of view of only 65 which many photographers would only classify as wide angle, not panoramic

Ultimately though panoramic photography and virtual tours have now come to be seen as the same process and the different terms are often interchanged though generally speaking Virtual Tours are referred to as being on the world wide web where people can virtually move from one location to the next by clicking on hotspots in the image, whilst panoramic photography is generally used for print.

360 Photography is similar to 360 Virtual Tours though it can be either a printed image or an online virtual tour. 360 photography also implies that the whole of the vertical field of view is captured and not just the horizontal field of view.

Capturing this can be problematic for a number of reasons. Firstly the camera and lens have to be of a specific type such that data at the top of the image is captured. Certain combinations of lenses and cameras will provide this functionality though one has to be careful in choosing the correct equipment. Secondly stitching a full 360 image can also be problematic as making points of the image align can be difficult unless the camera lens and panoramic head are aligned correctly during shooting the images.

Thirdly it is not usually possible to capture the image at the bottom point as the tripod will obscure the detail. One technique used to solve this problem is to use an image like a logo which can also help to reinforce a company's brand. A full 360 image also has a larger file size which will slow down loading speeds on the internet.

VIRTUTOUR has developed a special system using many of the principles above that provides out of this world 360 photography primarily to luxury hotels and venues. The system also monitors customer activity and collects feedback thus providing a means for the hotel to measure its return on investment.
