360 Vision Ltd. (www.360vision.co.uk), a leading virtual tour developer, announced today it will offer free help and advice to anyone using iPIX virtual tour software, whether developers or end-users.

Paul Baderman, Marketing Director at 360 Vision Ltd. said: “The bankruptcy of iPIX Inc. has caused some uncertainty and concern amongst iPIX end users and developers alike. I should stress that thanks to our in-house expertise and multi-platform approach, we have already ensured that all our existing customers have virtual tours that are fully future-proofed and will in no way be affected by the situation at iPIX Inc.

We would now like to offer free help and advice to anyone out there who has concerns about what to do with their own virtual tours. In most cases no additional photography will be needed since existing iPIX images can be converted and future-proofed to ensure the continued functioning of the virtual tours.”

There are, however, a large number of websites out there that rely on the no longer available iPIX plug-in and, for these websites, many end users are faced with non-working virtual tours. There are also many developers and larger end-users who develop in-house who are stuck with iPIX images they cannot process. We would now like to offer free help and advice to anyone out there in these positions or who just have concerns about what to do with their own virtual tours and unprocessed images. In most cases no additional photography will be needed since existing iPIX images can be converted and future-proofed to ensure the continued functioning of the virtual tours.”

At this stage, iPIX customers wanting to make use of 360 Vision’s free advice should email their Support department on ipixhelp@360vision.co.uk. A technical advisor will then respond within 5 working days. Demand is expected to be high, so please do be patient.

Paul Baderman adds: “The demand for online virtual tours continues to grow exponentially and by offering this free support service we hope to help maintain the positive image of virtual tours as the truly stunning visual content solution that they are.”
