Hotels Partner with Austin Based, Virtual Tour App (VTA) to Produce Virtual Hotel Tours That Take Guest Beyond Google Business Photos
Austin, TX, December 24, 2013 --(PR.com
)-- Austin Texas based Virtual Tour App (VTA) is competing with tech giant Google Inc with virtual tours that take users beyond Google Street View and Google Business Photos. Several Texas landmark hotels already have advanced HD/HDR 360x360 interactive virtual tours integrated into their websites. High end corporate hotels and boutique hotels have both decided to go with Virtual Tour App rather than Google Business Photos.
The key advantages Virtual Tour App offers that Google Business Photos does not are:
1) HD/HDR 360X360 degree view with multiple navigation options
2) VTA tours are dynamic cloud hosted tours that can be updated and edited over time. Google Business Photo tours are static and can not be updated by the client.
3) Virtual Tour App features embedded multimedia such as videos, photos, pop up info, reservations, e-commerce, music, etc.
These enhancements create hotel virtual tours that are more interactive and informative than Google Business Photos or Google Street View.
