While this is interesting sit andlook at.. it lacks the functional interaction by the visitor.
These are 360 panoramas recorded in high definition 720p video and were uploaded to test the quality, they aren't intended as a direct marketing tool on their own but a test of process and concept.
Virtual tours do not necessarily need any user interaction to be effective, especially when used on HD televisions in places such as show rooms.
To record such a thing to be played using a DVD or Blueray disc, captured using video equipment at a similar quality level would cost thousands.
