OneShot360(TM) Provides 360-degree Images with Industry's Only Single

Shot Digital Photography System

RemoteReality Corporation, the leader in fast, easy-to-use, single shot, 360-degree digital imaging, today announced the availability of its next generation OneShot360(TM) Immersive Picture System that offers a faster, simpler and more cost effective alternative for enhancing Web content with 360-degree digital imagery. The OneShot360 enables businesses that rely heavily on visual images such as real estate, sports and travel and tourism, to enhance those images with the most technologically advanced system for capturing 360-degree views, enabling viewers to then create custom perspectives.

RemoteReality's OneShot360 is the easiest and fastest way to capture and publish 360-degree immersive pictures for the Internet. The OneShot360 requires only a single click of the camera to capture an entire 360-degree space, as compared to older technologies that require stitching multiple shots and the correction of the resulting seams. RemoteReality's patented technology captures a scene in a manner that is similar to the human eye. As a result, viewers can experience the scene as if they were actually there, using their mouse to move around within the scene, panning up, down, left and right, as well as zooming in and out to view an endless variety of image perspectives.

"The Internet provides a powerful viewing medium for the marketing and promotion of real estate, especially with the availability of virtual tours," said Richard Huff, CEO of Access Technology Services and ImageMaker360. "Our decision to work with RemoteReality's OneShot360 was primarily driven by customer demand for both high quality images and excellent services. By combining RemoteReality's high-quality virtual tour technology with ImageMaker360's customer-centric service model, we can offer a solution that goes beyond what was available in the market until now - a simple, low- cost and fast alternative for immersive images."

New Physical and Software Upgrades Add Greater Flexibility

Improvements to the OneShot360 include a full range of feature-rich functions and information on how to best capture space and enhance immersive images with HotSpots and Internet links, making users more productive in less time. In addition to an improved design that is more durable and ergonomic, new software enhancements have been added. As a result, Web designers have a more sophisticated, cost effective and simple to use method for creating Web content that captivates site visitors and produces a commerce-friendly experience. Major software enhancements include:

-- Email Capabilities Create Simple Method for Image Distribution

The OneShot360 now offers the ability to email immersive images. Customers, friends, family and colleagues can view the 360-degree immersive images without any plug-ins.

-- Additional Viewer Support

The addition of IBM HotMedia and Apple QuickTime image viewers give customers additional options for viewing immersive imagery.

-- Interactive Effects Offer Greater Rich-Media Experiences

Through a partnership with IBM's HotMedia Group, RemoteReality content can be enhanced with the addition of hot spots, offering Web designers an end-to-end solution for adding images and links to other Web sites and e-stores, enabling site visitors to conduct all transactions from one Web site.

-- Image Enhancements and Improved Flexibility Raise the Bar on Image Standards

The new OneShot360 provides users the ability to adjust contrast and light within images to improve the quality of digital immersive pictures. Additionally, users have the ability to adjust both the quality and resolution of images, providing flexibility for advanced users to optimize settings for quality and file size.

"Today's Web is populated with visual content that was not designed to take advantage of what the Internet has to offer. RemoteReality enables businesses to develop visual content more suited to the interactive character of the Web, and the OneShot360 is a critical part of this plan," said Jeb Hurley, president and CEO of RemoteReality. "The latest version of the OneShot360 is proof of our commitment to offering customers and partners simple and easy-to-use technologies that can quickly create immersive content that will enhance the value of their visual information and differentiate their site and their offerings."

Pricing and Availability

The next generation OneShot360 is available now from RemoteReality and its reseller partners. The retail price of the OneShot360 is $798.
