Technical Overview

Here’s slightly more in-depth background information on Arena’s 360 capture and tour production service.

1 Assessment

Spaces are assessed for tour production, very often using one or more 360 photos taken for reference.

Practicalities are then discussed with clients prior to any shoot.

2 Photo spheres are shot.

This is very often arranged for single sessions per space, it renders the environment more controllable for the finished result and less prone to continuity errors e.g. one window showing bright sunshine outside, another an overcast day.

3 Photos are processed and colour adjusted, as shown in the example.


4 The photo spheres are processed to populate a floorplan (as shown), based on the unique co-ordinates sampled by each.


5 The mesh and raw photos are adjusted and elements are rendered into the tour as required.
