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.

How can I showcase my products in 3D?

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.

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.
