The Catalog World at Your Finger Tips…

July 8th, 2011
In 1897, the Sears Roebuck ran a catalog of over 700 pages that contained virtually every item needed to run a household or a business. Sears Roebuck assured customers in rural areas that catalog shopping was a safe and effective means of receiving all of the products they needed the most without having to travel long distances to the nearest store. Thus, the world of catalog shopping was born. Clothes, tools and household supplies could be delivered to rural areas without the hassle and gave rural dwellers excitement in waiting for their mail.
Today, we have the convenience of shopping at thousands upon thousands of stores – including malls, strip malls, outlets, big box stores, convenience stores and local brick and mortar establishments. Catalog shopping and online shopping provide alternative means to running to the store. These methods of shopping are ideal for those with hectic schedules or the homebound. They also provide individuals access to stores that may not be in their area.
As technology continuously evolves, so does the catalog. The iPad, iPhone and other tablet and smartphone devices have paved the way for a new and improved catalog. Whether you are a small business or large business you can benefit from mobile catalog browsing.
With MediaSpin360, you can showcase your products in a mobile catalog in an entirely knew light. With the popularity of touch-screen devices, your customers can pan, zoom, spin and rotate each and every image in your catalog with the tip of a finger. MediaSpin360 adds realism and interactivity to your catalog. With the use of iPads, iPhones and other products, MediaSpin360 can provide the illusion of holding a product in your hands without ever having to leave your house. Market your products in an entirely new light with mobile catalogs and take your products to an entirely new level with MediaSpin360.

Zoom In, Zoom Out, Move It All Around…360 Style.

August 3rd, 2010
Imagine being able to see every angle of a toy, a piece of jewelry, an electronic device, or even an article of clothing without ever leaving the house. With MediaSpin360, the consume can do just that. There is no need to brush your hair, get all dressed up, or put your car in drive to check out the products that are most in demand by the consumer.
MediaSpin 360 gives the illusion of having the product at hand. Consumers can view every angle and every detail of an item before adding it to their shopping cart. Consumers can get up close and personal with all aspects of a product. They can get a close up of a denim fabric or check out the intricate details of a diamond ring. This provides the consumer with a state of the art shopping experience and more confidence in their purchases. More confidence in purchases mean less returns and more profits in the retailer’s bank. This technology can take even the simplest of consumer products and make them jump off the page.

This technology is easily implemented on to any website and will do wonders for business. In addition to spinning and zooming, you also have the option of creating virtual design centers or product configurators. Choose the color, the style, the fabric, and all the finishing touches. Never again should a consumer second guess a product before purchasing it. After all, white or black, fabric or leather, shiny or dull are all very important decisions. Whether it is a pair of jeans or a diamond ring, no decision with MediaSpin 360 will be a regretted decision.

Think about it this way: When you are buying a packaged product in a store, you cannot even view every angle of it. What you see is what you get in some cases. With MediaSpin 360, consumers can zoom in/out, view products at 360 degrees in 3D and rotate the product to their liking. Consumer goods come to life with 3D, 360 degree images.

The only thing that is missing is the smell and touch aspect. But, you never know this technology may very well come in time. Until then, keep spinning and zooming products with MediaSpin360 into the hands of your consumers.

Hire Professional 3D Product Photography Studio or Buy a 3D Photo Office Machine?

March 6th, 2010
We have been asked this question by one of our clients. Both approaches have their advantages and disadvantages depending on your requirements. One of the most obvious advantages of hiring a 3D photography studio is that it gives you total flexibility of shooting any product that you may have. 3D office machines are limited to shooting only smaller products for both base and top models.
Many online retailers are under the mistaken impression that they can save a lot of money by purchasing the 3D office photo machine and do 3D photography in-house. The price for these so-called office photo copiers can be as much as $17,000 for the higher-end models. After setup and testing, these retailers often end up frustrated, regretting buying the system because it simply does not produce the perfect spin required for quality presentation. In some cases the software is not user friendly. Another difficulty for these online retailers is the difficulty of implementing 360-degree product viewer onto their web site.
At a professional 3D photography studio, you will have a team consisting of an account executive, photographer, creative designers, and web developers. Here at MediaSpin360 we provide top quality professional commercial photography for any type and size of product, from an earring to a motorcycle. We ensure that you have the best 360-degree product photography presentation for your online products. Another big advantage of having a professional studio by your side is that all you have to do is send in your product and in a matter of days you have 360-degree product presentation on your website.
A great online product presentation is the key to retail success. Making the right decision on 3D product photography will save you time and make you money.

How can I showcase my products in 3D?

January 13th, 2010
This is the first question that most of our customers ask when we talk. The answer is simple: “Take photos from every angle!”. With our advanced robotic 360 degrees photographic equipment we can showcase your products in multiple rows and at precise angles.
You might ask, “what is a row?”… A row is simply a full spin-around of your product. If your product has a lot of details then we will recommend 36 shots per row at 10 degrees apart, for a full 360°. The resulting spin will have a very nice and smooth flow from frame to frame. Some customers believe that 12 shots (30 degrees apart) around the product are sufficient. We can accommodate any type of request. We also have the capability to photograph your products at different elevation angles — from head on at 0 degrees all the way to directly overhead at 90 degrees or anywhere in between. Each elevation angle will be complete with a single row of predetermined set of shots.

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.
