TECHNOLOGY: Allows viewers to form a complete picture.

A LONDON-BASED start-up has announced a partnership with CBRE, one of the world’s largest property services companies, which will see 360-degree digital tours of UK offices made available to interested viewers. 

Virtual Walkthrough will bring the pioneering technology, already used for some luxury homes, to the office market in a further omen of the advent of virtual reality in the property market. 

CBRE has tripled its technology spending in recent years in expectation of a huge digital ripple spreading through the industry, with knock-on effects for viewings and valuations. 

The technology integrates 360-degree photography in ultra HD resolution.  Captured by specialist camera equipment, Virtual Walkthrough allows the user to view a complete true-to-life™ tour of the property.

Airbrushing technology such as Photoshop is not allowed to hide flaws, although some wealthy owners are able to use it for security reasons to conceal high-value artefacts.
