What is a 360VR image?
Our 360VR images are full 360 degree spherical panoramic pictures used in building
“VR-style” virtual tours. You can interactively “step inside and look around” real
places such as a travel destination, a conference or business facility, a concert hall
or movie set, a museum or campus, inside a vehicle or an open exterior space.
A general term we use to describe 360° panoramic images that are
created to be interactively viewed. Using different types of viewers,
(Java, and QuickTime) they all work to deliver an undistorted rectilinear image
in a viewing window.
High Definition VR
Higher resolution panoramic images with optimized file sizes of 800k or larger. This
allows greater degree of zooming for inspection of scene detail and for full screen
VR comes from the phrase “Virtual Reality”. 360VR images are viewed electronically
with computers and will give the visitor a greater sense of being virtually there,
conveying much far information about an environment and its relationships with its contents.
• Spherical VR and Cubic VR images captures the full spherical environment: 360 degrees
horizontally and 180 degrees vertically, (some of the marketing literature will say
360° x 360°). This is our state of the art, preferred media type.
• Cylindrical VR is a vertically limited view Panoramic VR image. It does not see
fully above and below. The vertical field of view (vfov) is typically 120 degrees or
less. This is suitable for scenes such as landscapes where the sky and ground may not be
For web sites, we generally optimize the VR file sizes to 200-300kb for broadband
