The next sample utilizes a commercial licensed premium application that requires a separate nominal hosting fee between $35- $50 per month, but has the ability to combine multiple panoramic images or “tours” into a central window with a high end marketing interface. The combined tour can include panoramic images, single images, maps, music and professional voice overs. The cost of creating the tours is not included in the hosting fee but the bandwidth of the viewed tours is, which makes this option extremely attractive to Real Estate Clients, Builders and Apartment complexes.
The tour can be launched with a thumbnail into a new browser window or tab as shown in this example or embedded in a page or post. This gives the client the ability to use this application in any existing web site or email marketing program:
