How 360 degrees product photography can boost sales?

December 28th, 2009
Success in Internet business relies on effective presentation. A static image is not enough anymore. Virtual, photo-realistic and interactive 3D are the new way of product presentation. The customer needs to have a realistic and detailed image of the product from every angle. The experience should be similar to holding the product in hand – it can be viewed from all sides and zoomed to any detail. Any retailer that beats her competitors to the punch converting the online store to this new technology will have a huge competitive advantage:
  • Most memorable and visually attractive on-line shopping experience
  • The information value of the 3D image is substantially higher than flat photography
  • Stronger sales arguments make the customer’s decision easier
  • The browser controls are simple and intuitive
  • Nearly universal compatibility with all browsers and operating systems

To bring this new technology to you we utilize custom-made robotic equipment in our photo studios, enabling automated capture of sequences of images for 3D presentation. Custom hardware and software automates the process and enables us to offer our services at reasonable prices.
To be able to offer this new and exciting way of imaging products, we have developed advanced technologies for storing and presenting images. The basic idea is central storage of images in high resolution combined with a lightweight client that presents and allows manipulation of these images in the web browser. The client is based on The Macromedia Flash™ plug-in which is compatible with more than 97% of all web browsers. That means virtually every online customer can take full advantage of this new technology.


What is 360° Spin Photography?

December 28th, 2009
Hello and welcome to my blog! My name is Jessica and it’s my job here at MediaSpin360 to make sure our customers are happy with the work we do for them. With this blog I hope to help you understand what it is that MediaSpin360 does and how it can help your business. We are all about 360-degree commercial photography. While other photo studios take your real world 3D products and squish them into a flat 2D image, we preserve every contour and every detail of your product in true 3D. Still not sure? Here’s a rundown of the most frequently asked questions…
What type of products can you photograph?
If you sell it, we photograph it! From toasters to motorcycles, we can produce full 360 degree rotations for pretty much anything, up to 900lbs. This means we are there for you for fashion products, household items, toys, electronics, tools, small appliances, you get the idea…
Is it more expensive if I only have a few products?
Not at all. We will be happy to help you if you only have one product. No job is too big or too small.
Do you only animate rotations?
We can animate lots of different movements as long as the product starts and finishes in the same position. For example, if your product has a special hinge we can show it opening and closing rather than spinning. Another technique we use within our animations is movement to show product detail such as having a model opening a jacket to show the inside pocket. Our creative staff will work with you to come up with the best animation sequence to showcase your product.
How much does it cost?
Our prices are very competitive with traditional flat photography. Our rates start at $88 which includes technical support for web site implementation and hosting of your dynamic 360 degree photos.
Can you change the background to a different color instead of white?
Yes. Our creative team will be happy to make changes to the background. Please be sure to mention this requirement before the photoshoot.
Can you travel to the customer location?
It depends on the quantity of products, customer location and the time needed to complete the job. Please contact us so we can figure out the best way to accommodate your needs.
Are the products you handle covered by insurance?
We treat your products as our own and take good care of them while they are in our possession. Our building is fully secured and armed with the alarm. However, we do not provide any insurance coverage for your products so we recommend that you contact your business insurance provider to ensure that your products are covered while not on your premises.
