To fully experience the Virtual Tours, you will need to download the iPIX Plug-In only one time (See Connection for details) The Plug-In enables you to view Full Screen Images, Self Guided Tours, Links to other tours within images, and even listen to audio, if applicable.  If you choose not to download the Plug-In, you can view the basic tour by selecting the Java Tour.

iPIX Full 360 Virtual Tours give viewers the power to step inside the picture, looking up, down, and all around...from floor to ceiling, earth to sky, in any direction. Viewers can completely immerse themselves in the particular environment.

Do I need a particular version of a Web browser to view virtual tours?
Although we recommend that you use the latest versions of Web browsers available, our range of virtual tours will display universally on all Internet browsers, including WebTV, and hand-held devices running Windows CE.

Do you recommend any Web browsers or operating systems for PC users viewing virtual tours?
For the best results, we recommend you upgrade your browser to at least Internet Explorer 4.01, Netscape 4.05 (or more recent versions) on Windows 95, 98, or NT. These provide the best support for the Java programming language used for our tours with full features. If your browser cannot view the full-featured tour, the basic version of the same tour will be served to your browser.

Do you recommend any Web browsers or operating systems for Mac viewing virtual tours?

For the best results, we recommend you upgrade your browser to at least Microsoft Internet Explorer 4.5 on MAC OS 8.5. This provides the best support for the Java programming language used for our tours with full features. If your browser cannot view the full-featured tour, the basic version of the same tour will be served to your browser.

Why do I see a virtual tour as a series of still frame images?
Still frames are one version of our panoramic tours. iPIX offers two types of Panoramic Virtual Tours on the Internet. The iPIX Full-featured Panoramic Virtual Tour utilizes the power of Java-enabled Web browsers to allow for smooth, automatic left and right panning of an image as well as a zoom feature. The iPIX Basic Virtual Tour displays the same content and image quality as the full-featured version, but displays the images as a series of still-frame images that the user navigates with a series of mouse clicks. The most common reason why users cannot see our full-featured virtual tours is because their Web browser is not Java-enabled. If you do not have a Java-enabled browser, you will see our basic virtual tour, which is designed to display a virtual tour as a series of still frame images.  

I use AOL to access your Web site and I'm having problems viewing virtual tours. Can you help me?
There are two primary versions of AOL, the 16-bit version which was used primarily by computers running Windows 3.X, and the 32-bit version which runs on Windows 95, 98 and NT. AOL 32-bit version users will be able to see our full-featured virtual tour, while AOL 16-bit users will be able to see our basic virtual tour. If you wish to upgrade to the 32-bit version of AOL, type in the AOL keyword "Upgrade" from within AOL.
