The new RealTour Fusion system just got some major system updates over the holiday weekend. First of all we’re very excited to announce that we’ve increased the resolution on the images in the system considerably without sacrificing load time. In fact, using a new compression method, we’ve been able to keep the still images the same size (kb) if not smaller than the images we were previously serving up that we’re smaller in pixel size.
This update will apply to any NEW virtual tours that are created using the RTV Fusion virtual tour software and users will notice the increase in image quality when comparing the sharpness of images in a previously created virtual tour. This update will be most noticeable when viewing a virtual tour in HD Full Screen mode. While we won’t be making any edits to previously created virtual tours, any user that would like to take advantage of this update are encouraged to re-upload the still images of any previously created Fusion tour to take advantage of the higher resolution.
For those of you that are blazing your own trail and have your favorite settings for stills and panoramas we’ve created our new MySize feature. Before you publish your images to the Fusion servers simply check on the MySize button and the Fusion system will not attempt to optimize or resize your images in any way. We have given you FULL CONTROL of your image resolution and compression.
For those of you that are familiar with resizing images and applying compression please feel free to try out this new feature and send in examples of your productions to RTV for showing on the Home Page of our website. For those of you that are new to this we encourage you to come to our MySize show or watch it online at www.rockpointemarketing.com.
Uploading images that are too large in KB size will result in your productions opening much slower than desired and in turn your customers not being happy with you. There’s a fine balance between an amazing looking presentation and the time one will wait. We believe very strongly that Fusion is the world’s finest and most elegant looking virtual tour platform. If you allow RTV to manage your compression and image size we’re certain that your customers will say the same. Use our new MySize feature only if you’re 100% certain that you’re capable of balancing image size and compression with load times.
Keep your eyes out for more updates coming real soon from RTV!
