What exactly is a 4pi "interactive, high-resolution, fully spherical experience"? What practical use does it have for my business?
Let’s start with spherical. 4pi spins capture the entire environment -- every direction at once. Our viewers let you look in every direction and navigate the image as if you were there.
4pi images are very high resolution (up to billions of pixels). This makes the experience realistic, puts the environment in the best possible light, and lets you zoom in to see the fine details.
4pi spins are inherently interactive. The experience of looking around in an image is a natural, intuitive way to experience an environment. When we add layers of location-based information through hotspots and link in multimedia it gets even better. We put the user in complete control to explore however they like and at their own pace. Video and photographs are powerful, but the experience is passive. 4pi spins are active and engaging.
In practical terms, 4pi spins give you:
The internet presents us all with information overload. A 4pi spin will grab your audience’s attention, keep it, and make them want to see more. If a picture is worth a thousand words...
4pi spins don’t hide anything.
If your customer is making a major purchase on-line (for example, booking a vacation package) it is a struggle to convince them with text, photos, and video alone. A 4pi experience will give them an unparalleled sense of what they are purchasing, allow them to explore, get informed, and get excited.
Just like being there.
A 4pi spin puts a huge amount of information into context. The best part is that context is the place, itself. Moving through the space puts the information exactly where it belongs. Your audience can look at items, learn about them, and make purchases inside the virtual tour. How cool is that?!
