TECHNOLOGY
Virtual Tours and Panoramic Immersive Imaging can be delivered to end-users in a variety of manners, depending on the final project medium and client objectives. While all the viewer technologies we deploy are highly developed and successful methods, it is important to understand the differences in compatibility and interaction between the different plug-in and code-based solutions.
Flash Plug-in
Our recently developed Flash viewer is a rapid-loading panoramic interface that is effortlessly incorporated into your web or multimedia projects. The free Macromedia Flash browser plug-in is already installed on 95% of personal computers, providing by far the best solution for cross-platform and operating system compatibility. The Flash viewer is currently limited only in that it can't display the extreme poles of the panoramic globe.
Flash
Java
A Java Viewer provides a means of delivering immersive images without the need for end-users to install any browser plug-ins. The Java applet runs in all java-enabled web browsers (Explorer, Navigator, Firefox, etc) across most major operating systems - providing a nearly universal viewing solution with a full 360x360 interactive image.
Java
iPIX Plug-in
Like its Java counter-part, the IPIX viewer is a full 360x360 spherical image allowing the user to see all aspects of the photographed environment. The iPIX viewer boasts image streaming and an extended set of zoom and panning controls, but requires the download of the iPIX browser plug-in.

QuickTime Plug-in
With the corresponding hardware, QuickTime VR can be used to create high quality full screen versions of virtual tours. This requires the visitor to have the latest QuickTime browser plug-in, available free from Apple Computer. The QuickTime viewer is typically unable to show the extreme poles of the panoramic.
