Being able to enter – virtually – a building from 2000 years ago: Virtours adds real value to my work as an archaeologist and a researcher, making it immediately available and useful to everyone.Prof. Jacopo Bonetto - Università di Padova
VR has opened up new avenues for the promotion of the Best Western hotel group and for a proper demonstration of each of its hotel's unique atmospheres: being able to assist and guide visor wearers via tablet is indicative of an order of magnitude increase in the device's potential and its transformation into a truly effective interactive business tool. For this reason we have chosen Virtours.Best Western Italia

Virtours Explorer allows for immersive viewing of content present on the platform (360° photo and video viewing – monoscopic and stereoscopic– and 3D rendering), allows for interaction with different types of hotspot for navigation through the various available scenes and for the activation of specific informative multimedia (texts, audio, photos, video). A system of intelligent caching scans at startup for new content in the cloud, then downloads and saves it locally on the device.
Virtours Controller, thanks to the pairing function between visor and tablet, allows an operator to reproduce in real time on the tablet the viewing experience of the VR visor user and to guide him or her during the immersive experience on how to get the most from specific elements of content. Thanks to this function, groups of users wearing a visor can also be guided by an operator using a single tablet.
Virtours Creator is the app dedicated to the autonomous creation of content by an operator using a tablet and 360 photocamera. The thus-created virtual tours can be augmented by the addition of navigation hotspots, information, photographic details, etc. At the end of the creation process, the application automatically transfers the content to the cloud server.
Virtours Cloud - Server & Cms
The Virtours cloud environment allows for the uploading and swift distribution of virtual tours within the network of devices registered on the platform. Thanks to the integrated Content Management System (CMS), it is also possible to upload content (360° photos and videos, both monoscopic and stereoscopic, text hotspots, audio, video, images, etc.) directly from a web interface and to manage/modify all of the tours generated by Virtours Creator.
Exploitation of web content
Virtours Web allows for viewing of the virtual tours via normal web browser in interactive panoramic mode. Scenes can be explored using the mouse by way of drag/rotate, zoom and click at the hotspots. The Virtours Web form can be easily integrated into the pre-existing website.
The Virtours platform integrates a user registration and profilation form that allows for the collection of client data and for the tracking of the entire immersive experience, collecting precious information regarding the locations visited and among these the most visited. By way of a special dashboard, operators can view the collected statistical data, grouping them according to various criteria.
Virtours follow Up
During the immersive navigation, users can mark with a “like” their favourite content: thanks to the integrated social sharing form, such content can then be shared through the main social networks, allowing it to spread and perhaps go viral on the net. Specific marketing automation functions allow for the automatic sending of follow-up mail at the end of the virtual visit which reminds users of their preferred content and offers them the possibility to view it on the web in interactive panoramic mode.
