High Dynamic Range
High Dynamic Range photography (HDR) is a set of methods used to allow a greater dynamic range between the lightest and darkest areas of an image than current standard photographic methods. HDR images can represent more accurately the range of intensity levels found in real scenes, from direct sunlight to faint starlight, and is often captured by way of a plurality of differently exposed pictures of the same subject matter.
In short, Non-HDR cameras take pictures at one exposure level with a limited contrast range. This results in the loss of detail in bright or dark areas of a picture, depending on whether the camera had a low or high exposure setting. HDR compensates for this loss of detail by taking multiple pictures at different exposure levels and intelligently stitching them together to produce a picture that is representative in both dark and bright areas.
A computer generated 360 panoramic image that is created by stitching together a certain number of photographs. It creates a feeling that a person is actually standing in one location and can view everything around them.
A HDR Immersive tour allows visitors to get the feeling that they are actually standing at your place of business looking around. For realtors it cuts down meeting time, because potential home buyers, get a much better idea of what the property and rooms look like.
Turn-around time is typically a week or less depending on the amount of panoramic 360 images that we have put together.
