New Measurement Mode further positions Matterport digital twins as the collaboration medium for the built world SUNNYVALE, Calif., Dec. 12, 2019 -- Matterport, the market leader for spatial data capture, today made Measurement Mode available in Showcase, the company's web-based client for exploring its 3D spaces. The new functionality gives users the ability to share measurements taken in a Matterport 3D digital twin with anyone, allowing them to accurately measure rooms, windows, doors, or furniture with a simple click or tap on a PC or mobile device. "Measurement Mode is an important step in our strategy to turn buildings into data and actionable insights," said RJ Pittman, CEO. "This new capability gives customers an invaluable tool for sharing vital information of spaces or objects within a Matterport digital twin. The potential for smarter space planning, utilization, and collaboration for the built world is enormous." Industries spanning real estate; architecture, engineering, and construction (AEC); retail; travel and hospitality; insurance and restoration will benefit from this important new capability. Experience Measurement Mode here. "Measurement Mode is a great example of meaningful innovation within the property insurance ecosystem," said Mark Whatley, Senior Vice President of Claims Operations, CORE Group. "This new capability allows contractors and claims professionals to quickly confirm the accuracy of the associated sketch, subsequently constraining the arguments and reducing cycle times. Matterport's technology continues to function as a credible and consistent dispute prevention tool, providing opportunities for contractors and claims professionals to transcend the traditional pitfalls that contribute to the outsized amounts of administrative waste that are currently bogging down our industry." AEC professionals can share Matterport digital twins with stakeholders so they can review property measurements from anywhere in the world. Or, they could make a bid for a project virtually, and dramatically reduce the number of change orders. "Matterport's Measurement Mode gives our users additional value," said Dan Cardona, Chief Operation Officer, Apex Imaging Systems. "Being able to quickly verify measurements in a digital twin, we increase the accuracy of bids. Plus, we save time and money by eliminating the need to send teams around the country to re-verify measurements." For real estate professionals, the new measurement tool provides another selling point for agents and/or sellers by allowing prospective buyers or tenants to virtually measure if a space can accommodate their furniture, artwork, rugs and other design elements. The company is taking Measurement Mode further in 2020, eliminating the need for customers to take manual measurements in Showcase.

Matterport Releases Pro2 Lite, Its Most Affordable Camera for Capturing Properties in True3D
Immersive 3D Media Technology Company Offers New Lower-Cost 3D Camera, Making 3D Technology More Accessible to Everyone SUNNYVALE, Calif., Feb. 15, 2018 -- Matterport, an immersive 3D media technology company, today announced the Pro2 Lite, its latest and most affordable camera. At $2,495, the Pro2 Lite makes the power of 3D technology more accessible than ever. The Pro2 Lite delivers the same fast and easy-to-use interactive 3D walkthrough experience and high-resolution 2D photography capabilities as the Pro2 model. With its push-button simplicity, the Pro2 Lite requires no training, weighs less than the Pro2, and offers the same high-quality imaging that is synonymous with Matterport. Unlike other companies that claim to provide "3D" tours, but are actually offering 360 panoramas that create a disjointed user experience, Matterport walkthroughs are True3DTM. Matterport's industry-leading technology creates fully immersive 3D experiences, as well as a unique 3D "dollhouse" view, which offers smooth transitions from room to room, conveys an immediate understanding of scale, and illustrates spatial relationships within a property. True3DTM space capture is becoming the baseline for property marketing, communication, collaboration and documentation, in real estate, retail, travel and hospitality, architecture, engineering, construction, and insurance. The Pro2 Lite will help fuel that momentum and will support Matterport's mission to democratize 3D technology by making it more affordable. Customers can now set themselves apart by showing their clients that they invest in the best technology, all at a lower cost to get started. The key differences between the Pro2 Lite and the Pro2 are a shorter battery life and a different pricing structure for creating content. With four hours of battery life, a Pro2 Lite user can scan up to 8,000 square feet of space before charging the battery. The Pro2 Lite is a great option for businesses who are just getting started with Matterport, but still want to offer their clients the best 3D technology available. "Matterport offers the world's most advanced 3D reality capture platform for businesses that want to interact with clients and partners in immersive True3DTM," said Bill Brown, Matterport CEO. "We are excited to now offer a version of the Matterport Pro2 camera at a price point that makes 3D even more accessible. Immersive 3D media is on track to replace 2D photography as the digital medium to communicate about properties, and the Pro2 Lite will help to accelerate that shift." The Pro2 Lite release comes on the heels of Matterport's announcement that the company has enabled publishing of Matterport scans to Google Street View and rolled out significantly faster "capture" capabilities, which allow users to capture immersive 3D experiences as well as 2D photos in less time than it traditionally takes to capture just 2D photos. This dramatically increases the usefulness, as well as the ROI, for customers. The Pro2 Lite will be shipping in March and is available for pre-order here.
