One of the outstanding features of the AJAX-ZOOM Player is the 360° rotary view. Each control element (there are plenty of them) can be switched off, expanded and adapted. Also the behavior and feel of the player can be adjusted to the most refined detail.
Above is an example of the standalone 360° product viewer with 36 images. The native resolution of each image is 7216 x 5412px. These are about 39 Megapixels! The images of the bike were shoot with "Hasselblad" but nowadays there are several affordable DSLR from "Canon" or "Nikon", which can achieve this resolution range.
Despite the high resolution, the 360° product view is loaded very quickly. This is due to the multiscale resolution technology where only parts of the image are loaded, which are needed for the zoom level and viewport.
However, you do not necessarily need to use ultra-high resolution to take advantage of multi-resolution technology in general. Even with 8, 10 or 20 megapixel images, the difference quickly becomes clear.
To tell the AJAX-ZOOM 360 Viewer what images it has to load for a 360 view, you just need to pass the path to the folder where your 360 degree images are located. The software does everything else instantly. Also the multi-scaling process is initiated on-the-fly, when image tiles are not available yet.
There are several methods to integrate the AJAX-ZOOM 360 Viewer into existing application. You can embed the 360 player directly into a responsive container or initiate it in a modal box from a link. It is also possible to start the player in full screen mode or full browser window. With responsive embedding, the player instantly adapts to the size of the outer HTML element, so you do not have to take care about this.
Possible UI controls are zoom slider, spin slider and the image map, which appears in the corner when the view is zoomed in. These elements are all optional. In addition, there are various buttons, for example buttons to toggle between rotating and panning modes, to change into full-screen view, to zoom-in and out, toggle play / pause (rotation) or toggle hotspots visibility. All the UI controls and buttons are skinnable and there are several predefined skins already included.
The settings of the 360 behavior, such as direction of rotation or sensitivity, can be conveniently set via options located in the configuration file. Alternatively you can adjust them in the AJAX ZOOM onLoad callback by setting or changing jQuery.axZm ['name_of_option'] object property.
