How to Watch 360 Degree Video on your Computer

We all know when you watch 360 Video content on your phone that you can easily move the phone around and see all around. You can also use your finger and easily swipe left to right and really navigate to whatever place easily.

What about when you are in youtube on your computer? I have seen loads of people trying to grab at the video with their mouse and moving it around and that does not seem to work very well.

What you need to be doing in Youtube is clicking with your mouse onto the 360 navigation circle on the top left of the 360 degree video.

Of course it is much better to watch immersive video in a VR Headset but that is not always practical.

Once you have clicked on that you can use your keyboard arrows to then look left or right or up and down. This creates a more enjoyable and seamless experience for watching 360 content on your computer.

Give it a go on the Clash of Clans 360 video on youtube now!

Vimeo is much the same but a lot easier. You see with Youtube, you must click on that circle navigation area before using your keyboard arrows.

With Vimeo, just start playing the 360 video and you can begin spinning around with your keyboard arrows without clicking. Although if somehow you cannot spin around with the keyboard arrows you still have the circle navigation area to click on and activate on the right hand side of the video. Test it out on the video below!

3D Virtual Tours

3D Virtual Tours

Imagine your Real Estate listings, restaurant, store or Space being visited by people from all over the world in an amazing 3D 4K photo-realistic Virtual model.

Imagine someone walking around your shop, seeing a product inside this Virtual model and then clicking on it so that they can buy it from your online store.

Imagine a buyer for a wonderful Real Estate listing that lives interstate conducting their own Open House from their living room 5,000 Km away and knowing that this is the property for them.

Now, this is all possible with Matterport 3D Virtual Tour technology and AustechVR can make it happen. And people can do this from any device such as a Mobile Phone, Tablet or Computer. They can even view your space through Virtual Reality Headsets in full VR mode!

Try it below!

Matterport is changing many industries with it’s 3D Virtual Tour Technology, particularly in the world of Real Estate. It enables people to walk through the 3D model Virtually either via Virtual Reality Headsets or even on their Mobile Phones.

There is a lot of enthusiasm building with this technology, it allows people to travel from one state or city to another virtually, enabling them to actually experience the space as it is.

The key point here is you see the space just as it is!

Quite often you will find that Photography can be shot with wide lenses which make the room, house or space look much bigger than it actually is. This can lead to disappointment from potential buyers or customers as they feel let down when faced with the space in real life.

The Matterport 3D 360 Scan builds an accurately scaled 3D map with very high photographs layered over the top of the 3D map to show the property or space exactly as it is.

3D Virtual Tours engage people

Choose your own adventure, you can really choose where you turn, where you look and where you linger. This is one of the advantages over a traditional video which certainly still has a place, with a video you are taken where the camera is pointed. 3D Virtual Tours are designed so you can travel anywhere in the property at your leisure.

Let us touch on Retail and 3D Virtual Tours! Imagine a physical retail store that sells bikes, they have a website also! Well, we can scan that shop then clickable tags to the bikes that would then take you to their online store.

This allows you to actually walk around a retail store then click on the bike that they like the look of and investigate further and potentially buy. This is staggering technology when we can actually shop like this from the comfort of your couch.

With the Matterport Pro2, you are able to create the 3D Virtual Tours but there is more. We can also create very accurate Floor Plans, Highlight Reel in Video, prepare the space for Virtual Reality usage within a VR Headset. The big kicker is the High-Resolution Images that the Pro2 produces, these can be used for brochures, Web Listings or any other marketing requirement.

The High-Resolution photos can be up to a staggering 8092 x 4552 pixels (36 MP), that is very impressive.

You may have noticed I have mentioned tags, to be more accurate Matterport Tags. These enable the Matterport technician to tag features of your space or property.

This can be information on an amazing feature within the home, the menu of a restaurant we are scanning or the link to a product from a retail store to that sites eCommerce shop.

Another amazing feature that you are able to utilise in the tags is the ability to add video, so when someone clicks on the tag you can have a product video, informational video or even a short youtube clip of the fireplace in full flight!

The possibilities and the wow factor that these features bring are amazing, this tech really does put you in the best place to push your property or business.

Imagine the possibilities of the value of tags in places such as Museums, Libraries, and exhibitions!

Another brilliant way of using the Matterport 3D scanner is to monitor and report on Construction Projects. You can scan at different intervals of the construction process so that all major stakeholders are completely aware of what is happening.

After that you have information moving forward on the skeletons of the project which allows you to see what is behind the walls in years to come. How close is this to Time Travel?
