Illinois Virtual Tours

Illinois Virtual Tours provides high quality panoramic tours for use in various sales, marketing and retail applications. Our Virtual Tours are by far the most interactive available on the web today. With custom directional HotSpots, the end user actually feels where they are moving within the tour. Our tours can be seen by anyone with an Internet connection. Adding the unique Tour-To-Go Option allows the tour to be viewed without active connection to the Internet.

An Illinois Virtual Tour  spin can be a unique location, area, panorama, or a room within a tour. Virtual tours are priced by the spin and a minimum number of spins per tour is required. A real estate tour, for example requires a minimum of four spins.

How This Technology Works

A very small java applet is downloaded to your computer. It allows you to smoothly scroll through panoramas in every direction of view. When a virtual tour is viewed from a website it allows the visitor to view the tour in a pop-up without ever leaving the page or site.

A typical Real Estate Virtual Tour costs around $100.00.

Since every tour is different the cost will vary depending on the amount of work to be completed.

If you would like a better idea of what a tour would cost, please call or email us for an estimate.

Download Times For Our Virtual Tours

ILVT virtual tours are designed to load quickly, but several factors can contribute to wait times. The download speed is dependant on the user's Internet connection speed, the faster the connection, the faster the download. The amount of reliable RAM makes a difference when viewing the tour after download. Most users can expect to see the opening image within 10-20 seconds from the time they click on the virtual tour icon.

"Download Tours"

The Download Tour option allows you to download an executable file that will run the virtual tour. This executable file can be saved to a floppy dick or CD-ROM. It can be run without an Internet connection or a web browser. The Download Tour Option is especially useful for showing the downloaded virtual tour to clients in the field without Internet connection! Imagine the possibilities...you could run the downloaded tour for one customer even as you serve another!

Posting Virtual Tours To Web Sites

Most websites require user authentication to log in and make changes. This makes it impossible for Illinois Virtual Tours to become every agent's webmaster. ILVT will provide you with a piece of HTML code unique to your virtual tour. Your virtual tour builder will email you this HTML code along with specific linking instructions. You will forward this code to your webmaster or site developer for posting to your website.
