Embed virtual ad spaces inside walkthrough3934

Amaury private msg quote post Address this user
I know this may sound like a crazy idea, but how about the ability to embed a virtual signage display stand inside tours, this will work for instance inside a shopping mall or inside a Wendy's restaurant, imagine you look up at the menu screens and they have animated HTML5 banners that shows the actual menu/offers.

Option #2
You are navigating inside a shopping mall and as you pass by these Digital Signage Kiosks you are able to see the advertising animations moving.

This will for sure give me the ability to sell ad spaces within a virtual tour.


What do you think? @Metroplex360, @DanSmigrod, @Matterport?

I don't see how you can add this to a 3D tour...?

Hi Douglas, I know it sounds a bit crazy but maybe it sparks some creative thinking out the and caught @Metroplex360's and or Matterport attention

This is more inclined to sell ad spaces to brands inside a shopping mall VR Walk-through, I'm sure fashion and luxury brands will love the opportunity to show off.

@Amaury I like the idea.

Even if it wasn't advertising, ANY animated movement inside would add to the tour. Imagine a fireplace with a roaring fire, or a tv screen that loops a .gif image of a tv show.

Would really make the spaces that much more immersive.

I totally Agree with you @Queen_City_3D! That moving fireplace with a crackling background sound that goes up as you get closer to it would have me sitting there in the middle of the tour.

I started embedding ads for my services in local businesses that I have scanned.

clickable text

The idea is a potential seller will contact me and I will refer them to one of my partner real estate agents. They use me for the photography and virtual tour if they get the listing. Once I get my license I will charge a referral fee. Who knows?...it might work!

Hello Amaury,

The ad-box in your picture look like a web page.
I think one auto-refresh tag with iframe(show ad-web-page) can get this effect.
It is do possible but not in Matterport showcase now.
We can provide some DEMO if you like please send email to us
jumpiit3d@gmail.com

Thank you.

Hi @JuMP, I would love to see a demo of that feature, I believe it's something that can enhance tours and make them lot more immersive than now.

@JonJ I just saw your Ad inside the tour, for some reason it was not loading back at home. Cool that they actually let you set it up!, I guess you can trade those spaces in for rebate or free tours.

@JonJ - curious what Hosting options do you offer? This is always a tricky thing - Hosting fees.

@PHILG,
For hosting options, I include 6 months of hosting with the initial scan. After that, the client can choose from 3 options, depending on their needs.

month-to-month: $15
6 months: $60
Annually: $100

Incidentally, I offer free hosting for commercial properties that allow me to embed my ad.

@Amaury @Queen_City_3D!

Just can confirm that animation even on parts e.g. the ocean waves outside on a window view will add a lot more experience to the scene.

Guess for this you need a good API & SDK to add features like this with Unity to a MP scene. Maybe also the latest WebVR standard will work?

Hope for this as a future feature. In general more interaction in a Matterport space, especially for VR is very needed for future competitions.

The other way round would also be very interesting. Allow a visitor to explore the space and maybe even buy even if it´s closed.

A great showcase for that is the adidas window shopping-project: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MYBURgFgP7w
