What is a Hotspot in a Virtual Tour Video?

Virtual tours have become increasingly popular in recent years, providing users with an immersive and interactive way to explore various locations or products.

However, simply providing a static video of a location or product can be limiting in terms of user engagement and information delivery.

This is where hotspots come in - an interactive element that can be added to a virtual tour video to provide additional information or allow users to navigate to different areas of the video.

In this blog post, we will explore what hotspots are and how they can enhance the user experience in virtual tour videos.

A hotspot in a virtual tour video refers to an interactive element that allows viewers to click on specific areas within the video to access additional information or move to different parts of the tour. It is a trackable content that is embedded directly into a Virtual Tour video.

Hotspots can take various forms, such as text, images, or buttons, and are typically placed in areas of the video that are relevant to the information being displayed.

By using hotspots, virtual tour videos can provide a more engaging and informative experience for viewers, allowing them to explore and learn about different aspects of a location or product in a more interactive and intuitive way.

Incorporating hotspots into virtual tour videos can also help to improve the overall user experience and increase engagement metrics, which can in turn boost search rankings and drive more traffic to a website.

Use hotspots to share links, images, audio, and videos

We currently provide the Propviz services in major Australian cities and throughout New South Wales. Our focus is to create the best experience for property visualization.

As well as providing 3D scan and drone imagery PROPVIZ can further enhance the end results with the addition of clickable hotspots to provide your users with further enriched information around various points of interest in or around your property be a pro the second you start using it.

This is an example of the immersive service that PROPVIZ has provided the client.

Peanut Butter Jelly is the place where street art meets street food. This restaurant brought together well known and sought after artists from around the world. There are 5 zones inside this venue; each zona comes with an individual theme.

Our project was to provide a 3D room scan of every corner, to showcase the world-class art and the ambiance. Therefore, visitors can feel the unique dining experiences this restaurant has to offer, before they are actually there, helping insight and booking decisions.
