THE VIRTUAL REALITY TECH STACK FOR ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT
When you use virtual reality and 360-degree video to introduce prospective investors, residents, and visitors to your community, you're not just taking people on a tour. You're guiding them down their decision-making path. Help people choose you by creating a library of immersive technology assets that make it possible for you to both reach more people and engage with them in a one-to-one setting.
360 Video Production
Give visitors the feeling of being in a place without actually being there with 360° video. When viewers engage with the video through virtual reality goggles, they can look up, down and in a full circle around themselves by turning their head or body.
Combine the power of 360° video with 3D modeling to bring your vision for developing a specific property to life. Models help investors and site selectors envision how a site could be developed or how a community can grow.
Existing Facility Tours
Matterport technology gives you realistic, interactive 3D and VR models of existing facilities that feel as real as being there. Users can walk through an entire facility using their web browser, phone or VR headset. Additional information (text, photos, video or links) can be added to ‘hot spots’ throughout the tour for providing additional information. This is a great solution for existing buildings for sale or lease, incubators and coworking spaces.
Live Virtual Meetings
Meet together with site selectors and decision makers wherever they are in the world in a virtual room. In your meeting you can share 360° video familiarization (FAM) and site tours. VR goggles with 3D audio creates a strong sense presence that makes participants feel like they’re really in the same place together.
How We Work Together
1. Focus on Objectives
Our initial conversations will be about your objectives and we’ll give you specific recommendations for how PlaceVR technology can help you meet your goals.
2. Creative Development
When you’re ready to kick off your project, we’ll introduce you to the PlaceVR team and schedule your first meeting with your content writer. During this phase, we’ll be gathering information for the video narration and deciding which places will be featured in your videos.
3. Video Capture
After you approve the video narration and featured places list, we’ll schedule the video shoot. Our videographer will spend 4-5 consecutive days with you traveling to each place to capture footage. You not only get to create the shooting schedule; you get to come along!
Our production team takes over to put the footage together, combining it with a voice-over, narration and graphics. We’ll make a round of revisions to make sure everything is just right then we’ll get started on your next video.
Your video is ready for the world to see! When loaded on VR goggles and embedded on your website, you’re ready to engage with site selectors, investors, visitors, and community members to gain attention and build excitement for your economic development initiatives.
