Frequently asked questions
How accurate are the measurements in the Virtual 3D Model?
How do I book a VR recce?
Simply email us at email@example.com, contact us via the website or call us on 0203 872 2777 to discuss your requirements today.
Can you recce multiple locations in a single day?
Yes, as long as it's geographically feasible within time constraints. Multiple locations in multiple areas can be captured in a single day.
What locations can you VR recce?
Depending on your requirements, we can VR recce all types of interior and exterior locations, anywhere in the world: so whether it’s a multi level event space in London, car park in Manchester, or conference hall in Malta, we’ve got it covered.
Do you require a location / venue manager or someone from production to be at the location whilst you VR recce?
Whilst we do not require anyone to be present at the location during the VR recce, we will work alongside whomever has been designated as the main contact, be that the location owner, the location/event manager, or H&S supervisor.
How many of your technicians will attend the recce?
A VR Recce is usually undertaken by a single technician depending on the size, scale and time constraints of the job. If more are required we can work with you and discuss this in more detail before we conduct the recce.
Are there any requirements you have of the location owner when you attend the site?
Are there internet requirements for Live 360 Streams?
Yes, we require either on site wifi or a solid and stable 4/5G mobile internet connection that can both deliver a minimum upload speed of between 30MB per second. If these speeds cannot be met we can discuss alternative services, such as 4/8k 360 video capture, 360 photography and 3D modeling.
Can you operate a VR recce outside in bad weather?
As with any video and photography capture we are limited with what we can do in the rain as water droplets on the waterproof housing would affect the image quality. That said, we can work with you and the venue to avoid this situation or in worse case re-schedule a recce if need be.
Are all of your technicians insured?
Yes. All VR recce technicians have insurance. We can provide certification on request.
How long will you spend at the location?
What will I receive from VR recce?
Live 360° Virtual Tours & Virtual 3D Models: We will provide a URL to your Virtual Tour/3D Model so that you can share it with clients, contractors and customers or embed within your own website.
What information will be provided in the VR recce location discovery PDF?
The VR recce location discovery PDF provides you with the following technical information: wifi strength, phone signal strength, venue/location access route, delivery details, on site parking allocation/restrictions and location of the nearest hospitals/train stations.
How long does it take between visiting the location and receiving the 3D Model/Virtual Tour/VR recce location discovery pdf?
Our turnaround time from finishing the recce to sending out the pack is approximately 24-48 hours, as scanning and 360 capture is only the first step before it is processed and ready for distribution.
Can I attach your Video, Photos and 3D model to an event or call sheet?
Yes - we recommend that your chosen VR recce becomes integral to all future production workflows: this allows every single crew member to familiarise themselves with the location, so they can hit the ground running.
