Multiresolution – the Essential Feature for High Quality Virtual Tours


Multiresolution is the key to creating high quality virtual tours. By using multiresolution, you can ensure that your tour looks great on any device, from a large desktop monitor to a small mobile phone screen. In this blog post, we will discuss what multiresolution is and how to use it to create stunning virtual tours.

What is Multiresolution?

The term “multiresolution” refers to the fact that the viewer will load the panorama one section at a time. This allows us to use extremely huge panoramas with lots of zoom without having to wait for them to download.

This is done by creating multiple versions of each panorama, with each version having a different resolution. When you view the image, the device will select the version that is best suited for the size of the screen you are viewing it on. This ensures that the image or video looks great no matter what device you are using.

Imagine you want to import a panorama with a resolution of 40000×20000 pixels. The benefit of this sort of panorama is that your viewers will be able to zoom in far and view incredible detail. However, such a panorama would need several gigabytes and may be too big for an average computer to manage.

The solution is to divide the panorama into small portions, with only those that are being requested loading (so, for example, as your audience zooms in). The resolution of your panorama will also be limited to the most necessary for the current zoom level. This saves a lot of memory since it doesn’t load data unnecessarily large (which may not even be required) at once.

Benefit of Multiresolution to Virtual Tour?

Now that you know the importance of multiresolution, you may be wondering why it is the only choice for your panorama masterpiece. Let’s take a look at some of the reasons why multiresolution is essential for creating high quality virtual tours:

  1. Multiresolution is the only way to view high resolution panoramas on any device. Whether you are using a desktop computer, laptop, tablet, or phone, multiresolution will ensure that your panorama looks great.
  2. Multiresolution makes images load quickly and efficiently. By dividing the panorama into small sections, only those that are being requested will load. This saves time and memory, making for a faster and smoother viewing experience.
  3. Multiresolution saves memory by loading only the necessary data. With such a large panorama, it would be impractical to load the entire image at once. By using multiresolution, we can limit the amount of data that is loaded to only what is needed.
  4. Multiresolution provides an optimal viewing experience for your audience. No matter what device they are using, multiresolution will ensure that they have the best possible viewing experience.
  5. Multiresolution provides an even better viewing experience for your audience by ensuring that all devices are displaying the image in its best possible resolution. This makes for a smooth and seamless tour experience for all viewers.
