    Max uses state of art professional equipment including wide angle full frame lenses to make the rooms feel as large as they really are, lighting, tripods, precise 360 panorama measuring and mapping equipment. When standard lenses are used, spaces appear smaller and images are not optimized.

  7. What is so special about virtual tours you make

    Max doesn't use outdated JavaScript technology or other special browser plugins visitors would have to download and install in order to view virtual tours. Flash format is the most favorable because 97% of computers worldwide have Flash installed. But that's not enough - Apple devices like iPhones and iPads do not support Flash. Max utilized HTML5 fallback mechanism to have your tour working flawlessly on any modern device.

    Next step is stitching photographs into one 360 sphere panoramic image. There is a good number of software applications on the market for stitching, but just a fraction of them really work as advertised. This task can also become pretty complicated without precise measuring, overlapping and nodal consistency. The most difficult cases are ceilings, sky, walls and floors with repeating pattern.
