Minimum Upload speed required melanietp 9 4 monthsmelanietp (4): Thank you wlee1684. Besides the upload of the scans, is there any other time I would need to rely on decent internet speeds? How about the Realtors? Do they have to download to their computers and then upload into MLS etc (my ignorance is showing). They won't want a painful internet experience. Thanks again!

Updated Pro2 Discount and Trade-In Programs Metroplex360 15 6 monthsAwesome360 (4): Same thing here. I purchased April 28th 2017 and was told no new cameras are in the works! That is pathetic.
Dear Matterport, About your new camera... StevenHattan 16 6 monthstomasdunbar (70): I have my camera 8 months. I love the camera but this latest development is going to hurt. I will not be able to afford the new camera and it is a huge slap in the face. The price is significantly less for someone else to enter my market than what I originally paid and they will now have a better camera than me. Matterport have lost my respect
Is the Pro2 a Competitive Advantage? DanSmigrod 8 7 monthsjustinv (1000): My prices are going to stay the same with my old camera. I hope everyone in my market upgrades and raises their prices. For the most part, Realtors are cheap here and everywhere else.
Matterport Pro2 Early Bird Increased to $500 DanSmigrod 13 7 months3SixtyNow (193): I received an email today about the updated program to "better support our newest customers" but the trade in value for my camera hasn't changed. So, how is that "better support"?

The Matterport 3D Pro2 Camera is a Joy! Metroplex360 23 7 months3dinsights (40): The transfer speed on the Pro2 at 5Ghz is 2 - 3 times faster than the older 2.4ghz wifi protocol. So if the Pro2 is transferring more data its probably not noticeable as its moving from camera to iPad at a much quicker rate.

iPad 9.7 (2017) Vs iPad Pro Vs iPad Air 2 DanSmigrod 8 9 monthsGransky (103): Normally, my day to day iPad is the iPad Air 2. However, due to a broken charging cable, my iPad didn't charge over night so I borrowed my son's iPad Mini 4. Call me crazy, but I felt it processed the scans quicker than my iPad Air 2. Personally, I'm waiting to see the new Pro offerings coming down the pipeline.

Photographer Researching 3D Tour Solutions? DanSmigrod 6 10 monthsblafarm (7): I am admittedly an outsider here and I have not yet even incorporated this product category into my offerings -- so my observations and opinions are nothing more than that of a novice.

Matterport's business plan seems focused on putting as many Matterport cameras, into as many hands as possible (regardless of whose hands they are), so that they can achieve a critical mass of market...

Is InsideMaps too good to be true? MSD 17 11 monthsHelen (637): @Hunter_InsideMaps Hi Hunter thanks for your reply but when it came to pricing I thought I was comparing pennies to pennies and not apples to apples. As I mentioned I do like your system and wish I could offer it as a cost effective solution to Matterport but that is not possible. Lets brake it down by comparing a modest 11 scans per month on an average 3000sqft homes for a year. With features of schematic floor plan and 3D model. My plan is...
#ICNY17 - Matterport Camera - $3,500 DanSmigrod 23 11 months3SixtyNow (193): I think I sent my request to the wrong customer service email. I did get a response and received a credit for $100. I was interested in their customer support more than the money. I was happy with the response time once I emailed the right customer support dept. This has made me a little more confident in their customer support. I keep reading about how long it takes to get a response from them. Maybe they acted quickly because I threatened to...
Refurb / Secondhand Cameras JACKS79 3 11 monthsMetroplex360 (6346): @JACKS79 @LetMe3D While I fully plan on buying a new Matterport Pro camera when it comes out, as inevitably, a new one will arrive, I am very cautious to speculate when one will come out. The current Matterport camera shoots 2K tiles -- much larger than is needed for viewing on mobile. The current Matterport camera, through recent firmware updates has demonstrated that image quality can continue to be improved through software...

New Matterport Camera Coming Soon? DanSmigrod 18 1 yearUserName (583): I was hoping InsideMaps allowed you to use your own capture camera. If they did, I could buy a hover camera and use it to capture 360 views of rooms and upload it all to InsideMaps. But, they say it only works with an iPhone sitting on their special tripod. That doesn't mean we couldn't come up with our own processing service that converted images taken from a floating hover camera into 360 pano tours the same way InsideMaps converts iPhone...
New MP-ad & landing page for Pointcloud mori 15 1 yearAlex_iGuide (247): With more scans you collect more data and, as a minimum, that data will result in a denser point cloud and finer mesh. That will increase computation time and storage requirements, so MP must draw a line somewhere for practical reasons and may limit how dense the point cloud is and how fine the mesh is that they store and make available for download. If you leap-frog along the wall with more scans, the overall room length error will be smaller...

A number of Members have shared with me that they were successful in doing this. In most cases, they asked their Matterport sales rep (whom referred them to Matterport Support). The above is possible because of the Matterport Pro 3D Camera Terms...
Is Matterport contemptuous toward us? hometakes 7 1 yearPedroAvilez (130): I agree with @Metroplex. The usd70 campaign was a rookie mistake but has show how MP deals with MSP's. Probably MP was not expecting such a negative and compreensive reaction by MSP's but I bet this will not change their agenda - just remeber what happened with 3rd party developers and all the changes in the TOS that were done. More, all this have show up how much MP understands Realtors mentality... Let's get back to MP goals and agenda. MP...
Matterport Vs. Google Radie842 2 1 yearjfantin (1147): MP and GSV are two different animals that happen to use similar concepts. In my opinion they complement each other but are not direct competitors because the value proposion is different. Quality is different and the navigation experience is superior with MP. The dollhouse is a killer feature for some customers (although not to everybody). While with Google StreetView you get more exposure because any time a user searchs for a business or a...

Used Matterport 3D Camera for Sale on eBay DanSmigrod 5 2 yearsRenderingSpace (604): Although buying or selling on ebay is easy and provides protection, Ebay takes out a massive 10% charge. That amounts to $300-400. Plus shipping. If anyone is considering buying or selling a camera, find another way if possible. Also, it's important to keep in mind that when you buy a used camera, the warranty doesn't transfer.

Bags & Cases for Matterport Camera Wyzlo 10 2 yearsMaria (106): We use a Nanuk 925 case with shoulder strap for the Matterport and charger. We use a Manfrotto MBAG70N tripod bag for the tripod and door stops and use any case, bag, backpack or just carry the iPad. This allows us to easily fit this in our car and less weight. I don't see a need to have a water tight hard case for the tripod or door stops. I use he iPad for more than just Matterport so I don't keep it in the case, although I probably could...

Short Survey for data gathering Tateo 18 2 yearsfranmts (175): Maybe it's a matter more of technology adoption timing and familiarity. What I mean by that is that any agent knows what to do with good quality photos and videos, 'cause they play nicely on MLS, any portal, people click and it plays. On the other hand we're selling mostly software, which isn't featured yet in Zillow and yet gives brokerages quite a hard time to embed on properties, there's lots of improvement on the back-end yet to be done......

Matterport Hosting should be Bandwidth Based Metroplex360 11 2 yearsJamie (1549): @metroplex360 If you die, that's not a nice thought :) It is a good point however. I'm not sure if matterport has considered this, but for the publicity alone they should take over hosting models that the scanner/us no longer can or want. Seems like a smart thing to do to have a product saturation in the market (to a point)
