Your visitors access your Web site with various level of equipment. The speed of the Internet connection for instance is an important element to take into account when offering virtual reality applications such as 360º panoramics.
High resolution versus download time
High resolution provides excellent reproduction quality; the downside is that highly defined pictures mean heavy files and thus increased download times. An alternative is to offer to your visitors the choice between two versions of the 360º panoramic:
(1) a default version in low-resolution (download time around 30 seconds with a 56k modem) and
(2) a high-resolution version in order to offer higher reproduction quality to visitors who benefit from fast connections.
Browser version and Java applet
The browser version should not be too old so that it can handle Java applets (Internet Explorer and Netscape Navigator version 4 and further). Though only a small minority of Web surfers are equipped with older versions, we recommend to test the browser version of your site's visitors in order to eventually invite them to download a more recent version.
