Shoppers will develop a deeper emotional attachment to products they are able to physically touch. When consumers establish this attachment, they want to keep it in their possession. What this means for e-commerce is that the new technology of 3D product photography allows users to explore the shape and texture of a product and imagine themselves with the product.
There is a difference between 360 degree photography and 3D photography. 360 photography is defined as multiple images strung together to create a singular-axis experience with the product. True interactive 3D product photography is defined as a photorealistic scan of the item, representing the actual shape and texture, and can be interacted with on an infinite number angles and views at high resolution. This is what Prizmiq (previously 3D Product Imaging) can do for your product experience. When items can be full interacted with, spun, zoomed for detail, and “touched,“ it creates a experience similar to physical touch. In addition, consumers that have the opportunity to purchase from two different vendors will almost always choose a site with greater product detail and information about the product.
Although there are some key differences between the various forms of e-commerce rich media experiences, it is safe to say that continuing to enhance the product display experience with emerging technologies will be a benefit to the brand’s bottom line.
