Virtual 360 Camera Interactive Tour at Esplanade Park, Singapore

Mezmedia recently completed a minor prototype project with a local tour agency. This Esplanade Park Virtual Tour was one of the early demos we created to showcase the capabilities of our team.

Our camera team operated a 360-degree camera which took high-resolution still images of the location which was then edited for colour grading, corporate branding and subsequently digitally stitched together to form a panorama of the Esplanade Park.

The virtual tour is fully cross-platform, mobile and desktop friendly. Our software team worked with an open-source Javascript engine to create the interactive points within the virtual tour scene. Each touch point will open a small window or tool-tip that gives the audience more information, such as the historical significance or the origins behind the monuments.

To add more interactive depth to the virtual tour, our team could add digital content such videos, audio tracks and also translate the virtual tours to any desired language.

Apart from viewing it on the browser, this virtual tour can be experienced on a VR headset, bringing a whole new level of immersion. Virtual Reality headsets like the Oculus Rift, the Oculus Quest or Google Cardboard can be used to experience the virtual tour without ever leaving the comfort of home.
