Create Virtual Exhibition/Museum/Venue Tours

Engage online Audiences and maximize marketing budgets with 360° interactive 3D tours! 

The arts are one of many sectors that has embraced digital technology during the coronavirus pandemic, using it to help satisfy our desire for real life activities. But many organizations lack the funds, capability, and equipment to be able to properly bring their programming online and engage a virtual audience. As an answer to this, we have invested in the equipment and software to provide members with the opportunity to create 360° 3D virtual tours at a minimal cost. With easy to follow guides and interactive tagging features, the virtual tours are key to accessibility, audience development and archiving, and are great for grant reporting and annual reports. Many studies throughout the past year have indicated that virtual tours are proven to increase engagement and drive online sales/donations. 

These 3D scans enable visitors to navigate exhibitions as if they were there in person, delivering far more than can be achieved through static viewing rooms and web pages. The software allows for dynamic tagging, which means that not only can you have a caption for each piece on display, but you can embed videos and urls to each tag to play artist videos, show related works, include links to your ecommerce site, whatever! Limited only by your imagination and what you can create using videos, graphics, and text, these tags can lend a whole new dimension to your exhibition or venue that you wouldn’t be able to accomplish in person.


Here's an example of a tour we created for Patchogue Arts Council to support their exhibition ILLUMINATED: A Lens On Gender | Photographic Installations by Lex Barberio. 

This show is the perfect example to how this feature can enhance an exhibition. Each photograph is accompanied by a short film. With the guide's tagging features, PAC was able to include these supplemental videos right beneath each work, as well as other images, and artwork information. They have also included links for pricing inquiries.
