Urbanimmersive Launches a Blog Platform Specifically Designed for its Immersive Technology

MONTRÉAL, QUÉBEC--(Marketwired - Jan. 15, 2015) - Urbanimmersive Technologies Inc. (the "Company" or "Urbanimmersive") (TSX VENTURE:UI) is pleased to announce today the launch of a new real estate blog platform specifically designed for its immersive technology. The new blog platform allows real estate portal managers to integrate a turnkey blog solution on their sites. The Company's blog platform differs from other platforms in that all images inserted into articles describing the properties for sale are immersive. This allows readers, at any time, to enter a picture and see the visual content of the property from all angles.

"The demand for blog content is a strong trend on the web. The real estate market is no exception. A blog attracts new visitors and keeps them longer on the site. Coupled with the benefits of immersive views, our new blog platform is a significant differentiator and its web performance indicators to date are superior to the industry standard. "says Ghislain Lemire, Chief Executive Officer of the Company

In addition, Urbanimmersive's 3D emulation technology has just what it takes to be used in a blog context. The high quality images used in immersive tours and the fact that there is no download time to execute the immersive views are very important criteria for web page performance on computers, tablets and smartphones .

Stemming from the efforts of the Company to develop a platform to monetize the traffic of visitors using the immersive content, the new blog will be offered as a turnkey solution to real estate portals on a revenue sharing model generated from ads inserted in articles on their portals. The Company also uses its immersive blog platform on its french website www.urbanimmersive.com as a technology showcase and to monetize the Company's visitor traffic. The english version of urbanimmersive blog will be available soon.

« The immersive blog brings a whole new dynamic to our business model. We not only aim to sell more immersive tours to our customers, we're now looking to create a 'marketing buzz' on our immersive content to maximize the number of readers. The more an article is read, the more advertising revenues are being generated. » added Ghislain Lemire, CEO Urbanimmersive
