SISDigital Introduces New WebVR Content
We’ve been hearing about the VR and WebVR craze for what seems like all of 2016, especially after Facebook’s Oculus VR Conference in October, which hosted the introduction of code name Carmel, Facebook’s WebVR program and plan. In fact, WordPress announced today, they will now support 360° video in VR within the platform! However, for the most part, VR has continued to be thought of as being a thing of the future. A cool way to pass your time away playing around in. Not a profitable move for businesses. Just a wow factor. Until now.
Here at SISDigital, we are excited to announce the release of our newest marketing and advertising WebVR product (with VR capability), SkyNav™. This innovative and immersive experience-based WebVR product is guaranteed to transform marketing for every industry that utilizes a website to assist with their business goals, or any business that wishes to provide visitors with cutting-edge web and Virtual Reality (VR) experiences without the need of a mobile app to do so.
SkyNav™ is a web-based, immersive Virtual Reality (VR) experience that is being hailed as a “next-generation tool” for website development, and a game changer for industries that utilize proximity, location, physical tours, and other visual elements for their current marketing efforts for their product, business, or service. Users can immerse themselves from their desktop computer, mobile device, or tablet. The VR experience can be accessed through most android and iOS mobile devices via the web, and viewed currently on Samsung GearVR, Google Cardboard (or similar), as well as mobile devices and tablets, and numerous VR headsets on the market with no app install needed or necessary. Cool, right? Play around in it here.
CEO Ty Downing explains the idea behind the product. “The idea of SkyNav™ was born from the marriage of the current Web VR craze, the lack of products that assist in promoting location- based communities, products, or services, as well as the industry’s inability to figure out how to make VR profitable for businesses,” Downing explains. “SISDigital has come up with the solution for the major thirst regarding web VR content, and has finally gotten our first working module completed for St. James Plantation, a 6,000-acre golf and marina community, as well as a city. It’s the next best thing to actually driving to St. James and taking the tour of the community yourself, which even then, you’re having to worry about travel there and being on someone else’s time” CEO of SISDigital Ty Downing said. “With SkyNav™, you can fly over the community utilizing 360° sky views, and when you see something that piques your interest, you can dive down for a ground’s-eye virtual tour or click on any of the rich media info beacons that explain more about certain places, then go back and resume your aerial journey,” he says. “At any time you can put on your VR capable devices. Best of all, with SkyNav™, you can explore the community at your own pace and at your own convenience,” Downing said. “SkyNav™ is a game changer for consumers to join the next generation of immersive experience, and we believe it could be a powerful addition to the website experience,” Downing said.
Director of Sales and Business Development Morgan Jones explains additional benefits of the product: “What makes SkyNav™ so appealing across so many different industries is the ability it has to compliment other marketing efforts to achieve goals- we foresee the product being able to help conversions on many different levels- be that KPIs for digital and traditional advertising and marketing, generating hot leads, or generating actual sales. There is so much room for customization,” Jones gushes. “We’re beyond excited to keep pushing boundaries with the product. We’ve gotten a ton of interest from real estate companies, towns, communities, educational facilities, sports facilities, and more…and we’re excited to announce we are in the negotiating phase for the creation of a SkyNav™ tour for an NBA franchise team and the surrounding area! The tour is expected to roll out in 2017.” Another incredible benefit? “That SkyNav™ was born and created locally, right here in ILM. This is a Silicon Valley level product that is being delivered to the nation from Wilmington, NC. That in itself is rewarding- talk about local pride!” SISDigital encourages businesses interested in the product to contact Jones directly, as they are still being extremely selective with who they bring on for clients in the early roll out stages of SkyNav™.
