Digital answers to your virtual questions

What is VRdeck.co?

We make interactive virtual reality easy and affordable for your business.

Experiencing VR can be expensive and cumbersome

  • Expensive gear or special hardware can be required
  • VR gear can be difficult to set up
  • On mobile phones often apps have to be downloaded

It’s a hassle to get your VR to the public

  • It’s complex and costly to add interactivity.
  • To publish content, an app is needed for every platform and VR device, so scalability is low.
  • It’s difficult to get real time analytics.

Interactive-virtual-reality-is-a-hassle

VRmaster provides the number one B2B web service to publish VR content and to distribute interactive VR tours,

so visitors can explore any place or situation in VR. VR tours can be easily created and published to any VR device, smartphone, tablet, desktop or website instantly. In-VR analytics make it possible to analyze behaviour, track reach and interaction, and follow your ROI.

What are VR environments, VR tours and VR bubbles?

What's a VR tour?

interactive VR tours (1)

 

 

A structure that is fundamental to experiences on VRapp.co are VR tours. A VR tour makes it possible to navigate in-VR through a collection of VR photos, videos or other VR media, representing different places or situations in the tour. Using Points Of Interest (POIs) a user can take different routes through the VR tour, allowing the user to experience different story lines. Examples are exploring different rooms in a house or exploring different situations in a training course.

The advantage of VR tours is that they provide a powerful means of storytelling in a simple way, making the production of VR experiences easy and fast. We will add only those features that provide the highest added value to VR tour design and experience. Example of such features are our VR-menu, interactivity using POIs and displaying dynamic data, such as product pricing, in VR.

How do I edit the VR tour credentials?

What's a VR bubble? aka Sphere, 360° or Panoramic photo or video
A bubble is a 360° content item that can be a photo, video, rendering or animation. Multiple bubbles can present points of view in a VR tour.
What are Points Of Interests (POIs aka Hotspots)?

It’s possible to freely navigate to VR Bubbles whitin a VR Tour. When creating a VR Tour, Points of Interest (POIs) can be added wherever you like inside a VR Bubble. A Point of Interest can contains extra information, a picture and a button to go to another VR bubble. Points of Interest are recognized by a small circle. When aimed at it, more information about the concering Point of Interest appears. The viewer then can decide whether to travel to that next VR Bubble or not.

 

 

How to use it?

Step 1:
Go to https://vrapp.co/welcome/vr-video-tour

Step 2:
Tap/click ‘Enter VR Tour’ or choose a specific VR Bubble from the VR Tour from the location you would like to start.

What is the maximum resolution of a VR photo bubble on VRapp?
You can upload a 360° photo with a minimal of 2560 x 1280 px. If possible upload an image with a resolution of 3840 x 1920 px.
At this moment VRapp.co will show images on a resolution of 2560 x 1280 px. In the future, with higher bandwith and better smartphones, we could upscale our platform to 3840 x 1920 px.
What is the maximum resolution of a VR video bubble on VRapp?
We prefer you send us a 360° video in 4K. We will downscale the video to full HD. We have developed a scheme to optimize the VR experience.
We can tweak the frame rate to optimize the experience as this can vary as of the amount of movement in the video. The LA Times racing video needs a much higher frame rate than a VR tour like from Spie.
VRapp.co works in Web-view and VR-view.

VRapp.co can be viewed as a normal (mobile) website we call Web-view. In Web-view mode you can easily get an overview of the tours and VR bubbles in a tour. You can share a link bij clicking on the link-icon in the right corner.
