Say Hello to Media Gallery & More Virtual Tour Software Updates!

virtual tour galleryIt’s a square; it’s four squares! It’s RTV’s new media gallery!  Let’s dive right in here and let you take it for a test drive! Check it out – http://fusion.realtourvision.com/tour.php?tourid=327951&html5=1#tourgallery  Here’s a short video that talks about our new Media Gallery as well as a few other important virtual tour software updates from Real Tour Vision – https://youtu.be/vmkje-gRSYY 
What makes the Media Gallery so unique is that we give it to you in your Deliverables section as its own delivery link.  If you have a customer that would prefer this style of a virtual tour over the others you can deliver it as a stand-alone product!

The Media Gallery has been fully integrated into our HTML 5 virtual tour player and shows up to the right of the player controls and is shaped like a Square made up of four square boxes. Just like a gallery!  You’ll notice the responsive nature of the Media Gallery right away and it performs exceptionally well on phones, devices, iPads and even looks great on a desktop computer.   We’ve taken the liberty here to add “View in Tour” links to the Media Gallery so users can be looking at a thumbnail of a panorama and instantly ‘JUMP’ into the interactive virtual tour by clicking the “View in Tour” button.   

The Media Gallery displays all forms of virtual tour media and even plays back third party embedded media such as Vimeo, YouTube, or Matterport productions.  It’s pretty slick! 

By default, we have turned your media gallery ON for all of your virtual tours and you can find the controls for this in the “Buttons” sections of your virtual tour manager.   If for some reason you would like it turned off you can do this by editing your buttons.  Enjoy the new technology and stay tuned for the launch of our new HTML 5 Fusion Experience player.  It’s almost done!!!

Sincerely,

Team RTV

The Value of a Pre-shoot Checklist

Hello RTV virtual tour providers! A Pre-shoot checklist holds immense value for the virtual tour photographer. It’s always a great feeling to walk onto a location for a real estate photography shoot and see that every detail your Pre-shoot Checklist has been covered.  It makes the whole process go much smoother and leaves the brain free for creative thinking, and to pay attention to the technical details of the photo shoot.

For any given image, the photographer has a myriad of tasks and details to be concerned with. Camera angle, diverging lines, composition, white balance, shutter speed, ISO, aperture, lighting, and the list goes on.  With so many critical details to attend, it is easy to miss little things, like a wrinkle on a bed spread, the distracting floral arrangement that obscures a key element, or a bulb out in a hallway.

A well laid out Pre-shoot Checklist is valuable because it will work to cure many of the repeat issues we see when shooting a property. I like to follow through with my agent to ensure that the home owner has in fact received a copy of the checklist.  I encourage my agents to hold off on the shoot until all items on the list can be completed.  The most frustrating thing for me for real estate photography, is showing up and neither the agent or home owner has ensured all bulbs are working prior to shoot time.  

Another value of the Pre-shoot Checklist is marketing.  Make your checklist attractive and include your branding.  An attractive and informative checklist will be retained by agents. Brand your checklist with web and phone numbers. Include a call to action.  Keep your name in front of the customer.  On my website, www.360-Media.us, I provide all visitors a free download of our checklist. The customer is required to enter their email prior to download.  We use the emails in further marketing for our Tyler, Texas Virtual Tour Company

Final thought on the value of a Pre-shoot Checklist.  A good checklist, is another way to serve the client.  It’s the first step in making sure the final product meets the expectations they have of you.  The checklist is also another key part of relationship building with your client.  So, in closing, I encourage my fellow RTV virtual tour software customers to dust off your checklist and see how you can use it to better serve your client and smooth out your shoots at the same time.
