Matterport Unveils New Cloud Platform, Unlocking Ubiquitous Access to 3D Technology
Company’s AI-powered image-processing software creates dynamic 3D experiences from third-party 360-degree cameras
SUNNYVALE, Calif. and NEW YORK – Jan. 28, 2019 – Matterport, the world leader in 3D capture technology and data, today unveiled Matterport Cloud 3.0, a subscription-based platform that puts 3D capture in the hands of businesses and individuals worldwide. The company’s new cloud software platform enhances the power of Matterport’s flagship Pro2 camera, and enables new users to transform panoramic and 360-degree imagery from spherical lens cameras into Matterport 3D – fully immersive 3D models.
A breakthrough in its category, these new capabilities in 3D capture are made possible by the advancements in Matterport’s AI-powered image-processing technology, known as Cortex. Cortex is trained on Matterport’s world-leading dataset comprising billions of 3D data points, and can construct stunning 3D models from two-dimensional images captured with spherical lens cameras, including Ricoh Theta V and Insta360™ ONE X.
This new class of cameras, which start at under $400, provides a low-cost, entry-level solution for the capture, creation and publishing of 3D experiences. Matterport Cloud 3.0 expands Matterport’s ecosystem of professional 3D capture – adding to Matterport’s Pro2 camera line and the Leica Geosystems BLK360 laser scanner – making its revolutionary 3D experiences accessible to a significantly wider market. The new offering is for customers who don’t require the accuracy, performance and image quality of Matterport’s professional products.
