Virtual Reality FAQ

 

What exactly is Virtual Reality?

Virtual reality or near reality generally refers to a certain kind of a reality emulation. Everything that is perceived by our senses forms a part of our reality. When you give your sense organs some made up or false information, the same is carried to your brain and you automatically react to the same. Virtual reality is a three- dimensional or 3D environment that is generated by a computer and, is explored by a person. The person starts feeling like a part of this environment. People can experience virtual reality with the help of specialised electronic equipment like HTC Vive and Ocuclus Rift.

What all should I provide for initiating the VR project?

Access to the structure of a 3D model or a floorplan is needed to successfully create a VR project. Some more information is also required like the exact headset that you would prefer, the exact level of precision that you would like and other related information.

How much does it cost to create a VR project?

It is difficult to assess the total amount of money that is required to make a VR project as there are a lot of varying factors that contribute to the final cost. To give an estimate of virtual reality price, all the details and the 3D model of the structure needs to be known.

What is the duration needed to complete a VR project?

The total time taken to complete a VR project depends on many aspects like the size of structure and the intricacy that each level demands. No exact time can be quoted as each VR project undertaken is different from the others. However, for a project that is similar to a certain project that we have done before, a very rough estimate can be provided. But, for this, additional information is required as well about which you will be intimated upon contact.

In case you already have renders, can those be used to create VR?

Even though such renders can’t be used exactly as they are, certain aspects of them can be incorporated like the 3D models, textures and materials used. This also helps us in understanding your preferences and might even be able to save us some time as we would have an idea about what you like and dislike.

Do you provide VR headsets?

Yes, we can. We can either lend the headsets to you or they can easily be incorporated in your project, as per the project scope.

Would you be able to provide me with computers and any other equipment I need?

Yes. We can give you the computers and all other equipment that you might need either on a loan or it can be included in your project. It depends on how you would like to receive the equipment.

What exactly takes place after the end of the project? Is any support offered by Map Systems?

Being one of the most customer-focused virtual reality companies, our aim is to deliver your project in a personal capacity and ensure that the project has been setup properly. We also explain the way your VR project would exactly function. Our support team is always available at your disposal, even after the end of your project and we do continue to help you.


What are the accepted file formats?

We are able to work with various kinds of 2D and 3D formats, which include Revit, 3DS Max, CAD and more. You are free to contact us if you’d like to know in detail about all the kinds of file formats that we can work with.

Can you provide visualisations of both interiors and exteriors?

As a part of our virtual reality services, we do provide visualisations of both interiors and exteriors. We have two options to tackle this situation. Either the exterior as provided in a 2D or 3D file can be used or, in case if you do not possess one, our team can create one, according to the information furnished by you.


Which VR headsets do you support?

Our team works with HTC Vive, Samsung Gear VR and Google Cardboard. In case your preference is something else, you can surely get in touch with us and we can discuss the various possibilities.

What are the minimum specifications for running VR?

The specifications depend on the device that is being used for the VR project. In case of Oculus Rift, A Windows 8 system is needed, along with 960 Nvidia Graphics card, 8GB RAM and HDMI 1.3 Port. In case of HTC Vive, a Windows 7 also works, with 4GB RAM, HDMI 1.4 Port and Nvidia GeForce GTX 970 or AMD Radeon R9 290. If there is any confusion whether your hardware would be compatible or not, please contact our team and we will revert back to you as soon as possible.

Are there any sample projects that I can try?

Our demos are available right now. We can give demos in person, in case you are interested in working with us.
For any further clarifications, feel free to contact us anytime. We would be glad to be of any assistance for you.
