Virtual Tour Group Provides Virtual Tours for Showtime House at Tribeca Summit
Bayside, New York—Showtime Networks, Inc., a CBS company, recently contracted with Virtual Tour Group, Inc. for the production of online virtual tours to showcase Metropolitan Home’s Showtime House at Tribeca Summit, a sprawling 14,000 square feet designer home project featuring interior design interpretations of Showtime Network’s most popular programs.
Maz Hobbi, CEO of Virtual Tour Group, Inc., said the firm produced a total of six virtual tours, covering 8,500 square feet, which featured rooms inspired by Showtime programs including Dexter, The Tudors, Weeds, Californication, Nurse Jackie, and the United States of Tara. “We are quite pleased to have worked with Showtime Networks on such an expansive and celebrated project as the Showtime House,” said Hobbi.
The virtual tours produced by the firm feature moving panoramic images of the individual design spaces devoted to each Showtime program. For web viewers, the tours create a virtual reality that provides more encompassing views of the design spaces than digital images can provide. “Our virtual tours of interior design projects such as the Showtime House are specifically produced to draw the viewer into the space and provide as realistic an experience as possible,” he said. Hobbi added that virtual tours are becoming increasingly popular feature in designer home projects. “We’ve found that many interior designers have begun using virtual tours to showcase their work in much the same way that real estate agencies use virtual tours to market homes,” he said.
Metropolitan Home’s Showtime House is a collaborative effort between Showtime Networks, Inc., and Metropolitan Home magazine, a leading interior design resource. The 2009 project marks the second year of the Showtime House, and features 14,000 square feet of design projects spanning two penthouses and outdoor spaces within the exclusive Tribeca Summit luxury loft condominium community. Public tours are available on weekends until October 18.
