Helping Capital Pride Go Virtual

When Ottawa’s Capital Pride’s Director Osmel Maynes reached out looking for a safe solution to what is normally an in-person event, we immediately stepped up to support Ottawa’s 2SLGBT+ Community with a random scan of kindness

Osmel and the Capital Pride team organize a variety of fun, cause-driven programming for Pride week every year in Ottawa. This year presented the massive challenge of digitizing the program to make it more accessible while adhering to the covid event guidelines of the time.


Two events that normally attract hundreds of visitors were the Youth Art Showcase and Community Market. We determined that our 3D Virtual Tours could serve as an immersive alternative and with help the Ottawa Art Gallery as a venue, we setup the art and wares of the community’s makers.

Take a look below at the 3D Virtual Tours we captured for Capital Pride 2020.


Showing the beautiful arts of 20+ 2SLGBT+ artists, this 3D Virtual Tour hosted more than 1000 visitors over Capital Pride week. All artists as are credited through the use of multimedia labels.


Ottawa’s 2SLGBT+ community is host to many creative and entrepreneurial makers who appreciated having an outlet to show their works online. The community market also had us support other sponsor partners by digitizing their information booths with links to learn more.


Broken down by the numbers, digital visits to Capital Pride’s website was up nearly 100% this year. While most years their Art Showcase and Community Market would entertain hundreds of visitors, this year more than a thousand were welcomed to the online versions of the events.

we know that a ‘Digital Twin’ will never live up to the real thing but considering of your space is one thing, how you use and share it is another. Many of our customers have been very sucessful showing their listing and property portfolios both passively and directly online with our 3D virtual tours.

Including The 3D Tour in your MLS
Our virtual tours are 100% compatible with Ottawa’s real estate MLS system. A simple URL parameter ‘&mls=1’ removes all multimedia labels and information from the Matterport 3D Tour, allowing it to be shown in the ‘Media’ tab of an MLS listing.

Show On Your Website
The best way to showcase your Ottawa real estate portfolio is directly on your website. With every 3D virtual tour, we provide an iframe code that is directly embeddable into any webpage you control. The platform is intuitive, sharp and loads quickly for any device.

Give A Personalized Virtual Tour
Another option some Ottawa real estate agents are offering is combining the 3D Virtual Tour with a phone call, effectively creating an individualized home showing. In a phone call appointment with a prospective buyer, both parties can traverse the 3D virtual tour online to discuss areas of focus without ever stepping into the home itself.


Every year we support Not For Profit organizations through our Random Scans Of Kindness initiative.
