360 Product views’s allow users to examine an object by rotating and tilting the object to provide a full 360° view. They provide users the opportunity to learn more about an object using vr photography– the shape, the material and the size. Adobe flash based object vr’s are created by viewing a series of images one after another generating an artificial 3-D view. These are perfect for learning more about the object from a marketing, informational, training, or educational perspective. They come in multiple setups, below are three examples. click here for a matrix view of offerings by class and type.(single row, multi row)
Large or small you should not have any limits on what you want photographed. Photospherix has been leading the industry in large object photography. With our equipment in our studio, we are able to shoot products as small as two inch by two inch to as large as 16 foot by 16 foot. The only limit to our 360-degree view of products is your imagination. Follow this link for more examples of what Photospherix calls over-size. That would be objects larger than six ft in any direction and over 600 lbs. PhotoSpherix also offers output of your 360’s in flash based and html5 based viewers.

Hotspots and Product call-outs
Sometimes it is not enough to just have great photographs of your products, even 360’s don’t show the extra details that you need to help explain your product, or how your product works. Hotspots are a perfect way to help educate you consumer on the in’s and out’s of your product. With clickable areas on your product photograph, the viewer can get that little bit of extra information.
Call-outs are the nugget of information that a hotspot showcases. This can be an additional image, a page of content or even an additional animation. A great example of a call-out is a 360 view of a automobile, with a hotspot on the window and then you jump in the car and view the inside.
STILL PRODUCT PHOTOGRAPHY
PhotoSpherix has been photographing products for manufacturers and retailers for almost as long as we have been shooting 360 views. The two processes go hand in hand. In fact most of our customers even use their 360′s for their still photograph. But is all you are looking for is a few great views of your product, contact us and we will help you through the process.
On Location Photography
Sometimes it is better to bring us to you, then bring your products to our studios. We have traveedl all over the world photographing products for customers. Sometimes it is even easier to contract our photographers out with day rate pricing. Our equipment can come to you, it is always an option
We have been photographing locations in the mid-west with Panoramic imaging. This is a great medium for locations, but not so good for products. That being said, one of our photographers loves to create 360 panoramic imaging of locations, and he is always ready for a new challenge.
Time-Lapse photography is the combination of all of the above offerings. This can be anything from a product animation, to a view at a construction site where the photograph sequence is created over months. It doesn’t matter if the project is simple or complex, the photographers at PhotoSpherix can help you visualize your next project.
