"3D to Mixed Reality For Architects & Property"

The digital age is pushing business to be more innovative and agile if they wish to stay ahead of the game and meet customer expectations. The information consumers of the 21st century generate an expectation for increased visualization within content. Seeing is believing. And the real estate sector is no different, although has been slow to adopt ICT enabled change. The quality of photographs has improved, better floorplans, greater use of video and voice-overs, all have provided for a richer user experience, although not changed the basic content ‘package’.

The next generation of technologies will exploit VR – virtual reality -  increased visualization with AR – augmented reality - 306˙ photography, and first-person walk-throughs, delivered on multiply platforms in a variety of formats.

For Snaploader the 3D model becomes the alchemist’s stone – where by the 3D model can be purposed and re-purposed to address all forms of media delivery – from print to all forms of digital delivery, allow the user to select the most appropriate format of delivery.  A 3D model can be seen on a smart phone to gigantic wall panels and in VR and AR platforms.
