Cutting-edge virtual reality technology has been used to illustrate a set of new high-spec apartments in Hull’s Old Town.
VR Media uses a special 4K camera to take a full scan mapping of each room, giving immersive tours for a better sense of the space.
As a new company, VR Media was set up this year by Dave Ricks, who recently sold his leather manufacturing company, Gostelows in Hull, and Rich Purdy, who was an employee at the business.
Together as directors of VR Media, they engage with businesses wanting to adopt video tours across a variety or industries.
The business recently worked with Liberty House in Liberty Lane, a property brought forward by Iguana Developments.
Mr Ricks said: “The team at Iguana Developments is refurbishing properties to a very high standard in the Old Town of Hull.
“Anyone wanting to view the properties can inspect them online before arranging to view in person.
“We believe this increases the number of enquiries as they have a better understanding of what it looks like.”
Charles Weeks, sales and marketing manager at Iguana Developments, said: “We believe Iguana Developments offers something new to the property market in Hull city centre and were very impressed with the videos produced by VR Media to showcase what we do.
“This is a very cost effective way for us to market properties and we will certainly use it for all future developments.”
