Another Happy Camper at RTV

Dear RTV,

I just joined up with the RTV virtual tour software family and I’m very impressed with the whole origination and all the wonderful things it has to offer. As a matter of fact I’m quite happy I have an organization that I’m accepted and comfortable with. Photography is my passion, Ive been in the tire business (Pirelli) for longer than I can remember and to be quite honest, “I’m TIRED of being TIRED” so to speak!

Anyway, I’m now unemployed and doing what I like more than tires and that’s Photography. So, I’ve invested in the world’s best virtual tour software system and I’m going for my Real Estate license all at the same time!

I’ve been attending some of the RTV webinars at and have just started testing my new spherical set-up photographing my own home in Argyle Texas, you may have guessed by my writing,  I’m not from Texas but from BOSTON ….. Wicked great town and of course, Wicked great teams SOX, Brewins, Pats & Celtics.

By the way, I love what you’ve done to present your VAST knowledge for us NEWBY’s.  I’m watching your 2012 webinar on spherical photography and stitching in PTGui. I’ve got the regular 360 cylindrical panoramas down and will now master the spherical panoramas.

I shoot with Canon 1ds Mark III and 5d Mark II and for this 360 virtual cylindrical photography I’m using using 14mm f2.8 canon lens. I have calculated both my cameras for the parallax alignment and am ready to roll. Thanks again RTV!

Traverse City, The Home of RTV

As most of you know, RTV virtual tour company is located in the wonderful area of Traverse City, Michigan, but what exactly is so great about our hometown? This blog post shares the fun facts and details about our amazing area and why we chose to grow our virtual tour software company here.

With a population of over 143,000, Traverse City definitely is definitely a great source for entertainment, socializing, and quality living. It is actually the largest city in the 21 county Northern Michigan region! Known as the Cherry Capital, Traverse City is the largest producer of tart cherries in all of the United States. Since 1926, the city has hosted an annual week-long event called the “National Cherry Festival”, where cherry lovers and families gather for great events and fun. Each year this huge event attracts approximately 500,000 visitors from all over the country! The Traverse City area also produces quality grapes and is one of the largest centers of wine production in the Midwest.

Traverse City isn’t just a place where our virtual tour business is located, but it is also the 2nd most desired small town travel destination in the United States. Talk about being awesome! U.S News even listed our hometown in the Top 10 Best Places To Retire…Shhhhh. Just imagine kicking back, having your favorite drink, and relaxing on the beaches of Lake Michigan!

RTV’s new office location is located on the Boardman River, which actually has some of the oldest history in the Grand Traverse Bay area. In 1847 Captain Boardman of Naperville, Illinois, purchased the land at the mouth of the river and built a sawmill business that helped improve the community and attracted new visitors.

Traverse City features some of the most beautiful bodies of water and is a great place for photography and creating amazing virtual tours. Surrounded by Grand Traverse Bay, Lake Michigan, and divided by Old Mission Peninsula, the scenery here is a must see for both tourists and full time residents.

The history and scenery are not the only great things about Traverse City. Entertainment is also another important focus within the city. The central business district is located downtown and includes a large variety of shopping and restaurant options. The Grand Traverse Mall features a great chain of stores and a food court. Sports are popular within the city and Traverse City is home of the Beach Bums, which is a professional minor league baseball team. The Detroit Red Wings’ training camp and annual tournaments are hosted locally. Some of the other great entertainment venues include the Traverse City Film Festival at the State Theater (founded by Michael Moore), City Opera House,and the  Dennos Museum Center.

Traverse City is RTV’s home and we are so happy to be a part of this great community. If you have never taken a vacation here, we hope that this post will make you want to stop by and enjoy a great time!

Thanks Goodness for RTV!

Dear RTV,

I was getting ready to do a fairly big job for my first real estate virtual tour sale. This broker had ten homes at one location and called me in to do my virtual tour sales pitch. I went in with confidence thinking that this would be a very easy sell with the new Fusion virtual tour software product we provide.

Soon into the meeting I sat down with the guy.  I was nervous a bit being that this was my first sales presentation. I told him that he was going to like what he was about to see.  At that point I brought up a demo of my 360 Interactive Virtual Tours. He began to watch and things were silent for a moment or two. The virtual tour presentation did not even play half-way through when he said, “you can turn it off”.  Oh oh!! Did I do something wrong I thought.  Suddenly to my relief and excitement a twinkle began in his eyes and a smile started to form on his face and he said, “I want it!”

What an easy sell. Boy, I sure made the right choice in joining the RTV family! Thanks for such an amazing virtual tour production and line of amazing property marketing tools to use. He will be using QR codes as well as YouTube to start.  I’m sure that I will go back later with more!

I love having something so powerful to offer to businesses and realtors! I can offer it at such a reasonable cost compared to print media advertising! Thanks again for RTV and all the great people that come along with it!!!!

Don’t Miss Our Show Tonight!

Make sure you don’t miss our webinar tonight at 7:00 PM Eastern.  Join Ben Knorr for the IMAGE 46 – Quiet On The Set!

When was the last time you watched a silent movie? I
dare say for most of you it has been a long time, if ever. Sound plays a
very important role in the video for your virtual tours. It helps to tell the story and bring the video to life.

Imagine watching a movie with a massive explosion tearing apart
buildings and throwing cars and debris thousands of feet in every
direction… completely silent. Picture watching Niagara Falls and its six
plus million cubic feet of water falling every minute without hearing
the thunderous rumble created by this massive amount of water beating
against the river below. Both of these video clips would be very
ineffective without the good use of audio.We’re seeing more and more of
you make great use of the full motion video capabilities that we’ve
built into Fusion so it’s only natural that we have a show on improving
upon the audio quality too!

Audio can range from ambient sounds to spoken words. In every case good
quality audio makes the difference between video clips that exist and
video clips that captivate. In this webinar we are going to discuss how
to capture good quality audio.  These basics can then be easily applied
to your video clips as well as your Audio Pal and Voice Overs too!

There are many different audio solutions available to you. Tonight we are going
to discuss the different recording options and their proper application
depending on what you are trying to record.

Join me, Ben Knorr, as we walk through the world of sound and how to
capture great audio for virtual tours.
