The previous part of our mini-series discussed 360° product spins that came back to life, much like zombies do. Let’s discuss the differences between the technologies on a serious note. You’ll soon understand why anybody in their right mind should choose 3D scanning for selling products in the 21st century.
Did you look carefully? You probably noticed a few differences. Most of them are discussed in the table below. Some of them are not easily noticeable and the 360° providers want them to be hidden from you. At least until they start sending invoices…
|Category||360° spins||3D scanning|
|Technology born in||~ 2000||~ 2017|
|Resolution||~ 24 MPx||> 100 MPx|
|Size of a single scan||300 - 500 MB||10 - 15 MB|
|Viewing angles||Limited, pre-defined||Infinite # of angles|
|Mobile usage||Limited, high compression||Unlimited, full quality|
|Zoom+spin combo||Not available||Available|
|Price per scan storage||usually 1500 EUR / mth||usually 0 EUR / mth|
|Scan & processing||Manual||Automated|
|Product sales growth||5 - 10 %||30 - 50 %|
Looking at the table above, it’s clear that there’s only a single reason for choosing 360°: Price per scan, starting around 50 EUR. However, according to our calculations, the product sales growth related to 3D is quite significant and justifies the use of a better technology: 3D scanning.
If you choose 3D scanning, you are not obliged to pay maintenance fees and cloud storage fees. On the contrary, these are often made mandatory by 360° providers.
In case of your interested in 3D, please don’t hesitate to contact us anytime. We’ll be glad to discuss all the options available to you. And will be happy to hear you’re not one of the tech dinosaurs still using 360s.
