FAQ

What is a virtual tour?

A virtual tour is a simulation of a real (or fictitious) location. Basically, it is a composition of static photographs that cover the entire surrounding space, that is 360 x 180 degrees. While watching a virtual tour, users can easily change the direction of view in the same way as if they stood looking around in a given position. A virtual tour can contain multimedia elements such as video, sounds, pictures, etc., which intensify the users’ experience and feeling that they actually find themselves in a given place.

Are there additional costs?

There are no additional costs, apart from if there is a need to travel over 50km.

I see the term “HDR” mentioned repeatedly when you describe the quality of your photos. What is this?

HDR refers to “High Dynamic Range.” We utilise a photographic process whereby we combine multiple exposures (bracketing) of the image and then digitally stitch the images together to provide a final photo or 360° panorama that more accurately reflects the amazing tonal and color range of the human eye.
This means that if there’s a view to see out a window… we can show it. This also ensures that, for example, the light fixtures in a room are not “blown out” of view.
