Unlike a regular photograph, a 360° image shows an entire room or environment. Once you have the smartphone app connected to the RICOH THETA camera, you can shoot and preview a spherical image. See a sample tour.
With the analytics dashboard, you can easily see how many visitors you’re getting and where they’re coming from.
RICOH Tours is currently available in United States. For non-U.S. customers and partners, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
RICOH Tours is an integrated, seamless product. Our camera, mobile app and website are all made by us and work together. There’s also no processing delays, which lets you complete the virtual tour creation process in as fast as 15 minutes.
We also don’t compromise on the quality of your images or limit the number of tours you can create. For a monthly or annual subscription, you can store and share unlimited full resolution virtual tours on our secure cloud.
You’ll need a subscription to RICOH Tours and a RICOH THETA 360° camera.
We also provide and recommend you use a monopod. That way you can setup the camera and step into another room, take out your phone, and snap picture using the RICOH Tours app. If you were to simply hold up the camera, you would appear in the picture.
No. RICOH THETA spherical images are created using two ultra wide-angle lenses at the front and rear of the camera. These capture a complete 360° image with just one click. So capturing an entire room takes seconds, and you can create a complete house tour of most properties in under an hour.
For creating tours, we currently have apps for iOS and Android devices. Tours can also be viewed from any computer using current browsers. Any changes you make to your tour in the app are synced and visible online automatically.
Once all your 360° images are taken, RICOH Tours syncs your images online and makes the complete tour viewable on a unique web page. Real estate agents can post a link with the virtual tour to their listings, or anywhere potential customers traffic, such as Facebook.
