Official Video>2017 Street View Summit Recap DanSmigrod 5 1 monthDanSmigrod (12076): @Metroplex360 I did 360º video interviews with the Insta360 Air attached to my Samsung Galaxy S6. This version of the camera is not Google Street View Ready (at the very least, because it is 3K). I do not know if a firmware can make it 4K). Instal360 announced that their cameras will all be Google Street View Ready. I do not know if this requires a hardware change. While I could have uploaded the 360º videos to YouTube directly from the...
Museum Tours Spencerlasky 10 3 daysSpencerlasky (61): Yes well I guess I'd personally sell the Matterport solution and down play the advantages to seaming into google street view - which I believe, if I had the option of going from a google street view into a museum or doll house so I can understand the space I'd take doll house any day.
Matterport Gallery anyone? realtymedia 8 3 daysCliftonrowe (1): Hi Jason, here is one we did in France. https://my.matterport.com/show/?m=vMShKqStStB You may wish to get into a local Nandos and do 2 scans as a demo to the manager but then use if for your pitch with your client. Hope it helps. Kind Regards Manny
GSV Moderating Platforms Richierichks 7 18 daysRichierichks (280): @Metroplex360 I was playing with Go Thru last night and it is really easy to use! I think that will be my go to for GSV for sure. @TrustedPhotoDC I have been messing with that for a while now and I really like the custom features that it offers. Definitely a must have! It seems to me that any of the custom features will not transfer over to the GSV platform. It appears that Google won't allow anything but a standard navigation only...
Where Are You Publish to Street View? LeventeSolczi 6 25 daysMetroplex360 (5686): "Currently we are examining instances where MP Spaces have scans at multiple heights..." There's a little meta tag that you add to the pano called 'altitude'. Matterport already stores this data for each pano - as well as already organizes into levels (floors). This could be added in a day, then tested and ready within a week. Easily. https://developers.google.com/streetview/publish/reference/rest/v1/photo#Pose "our...

Matterport to Google Street View: Sept 2017? DanSmigrod 5 26 daysMetroplex360 (5686): I wanted to add to my list of what Matterport needs to do to make their editor with one more thing -- Their system needs to allow people to turn on/off connections to optimize the tour. They've already done something similar in Workshop with the VR Mode -- it's not really a big deal.

Matterport & Google Trusted Photographer Pro VTLV 8 2 monthsRichierichks (280): @Metroplex360 What Social Media platform has those requirements? I only know Facebook's which are- What's the largest 360 photo I can upload? The largest full 360 photo you should upload is 6000 x 3000 pixels (18 megapixels). You can upload larger photos, but there are diminishing returns past that size, and you will probably not see an appreciable difference in output.

How to Charge for MP to Google Street View DanSmigrod 5 3 monthsPHILG (76): I believe in SAS. Spent my entire career in software. That is how software companies made their money. I'm talking enterprise software, not off the shelf single user or small # of users. I'd close a deal, asp $250k, then we'd charge 15% foe maintenance and service. Although that model still exists in large corporate sales, the mainstream is going to a pure subscription - monthly or annual payment. Much like Matterport, adobe, dollar shave club,...
Matterport: Please do not screw this up ... DanSmigrod 10 3 monthsjustinv (922): @Metroplex360 In a perfect world, it would not be anywhere but next best thing would be while tour is loading and then it is gone.

Video: iris360 Pro at Street View Summit DanSmigrod 2 3 monthsMetroplex360 (5686): This looks like a great camera for Street View. A few questions - #1) Who needs 90MP? #2) The 3D seems ridiculously basic - objects are flattened against walls and floors, etc. Seems to basically extrude images into room shapes. http://forum.we-get-around.com/cached/3bbd7534eafe8e111eaaf7c37cba2803.jpg Thoughts?

Video: NCTech Announces iSTAR Pulsar 4K/360º DanSmigrod 4 3 monthsDanSmigrod (12076): @ReTech I recall that Neil said 3Q17. Given that the Google Street View API is still in Beta - and not likely to be out of Beta until September 2017 (IMHO), it's likely that all Cameras that are dependent on the Google API will not be released until September 2017, at the earliest. @Metroplex360 No demo during the presentation. I do not recall if NCTech was showing content created with the iSTAR Pulsar in their exhibit floor space. Dan

Matterport to Google Street View: How Much? DanSmigrod 10 4 monthsMetroplex360 (5686): This is such a beautiful tour and I want viewers of this post to know that this tour was shot before Matterport increased the tile size from the Pro Camera to 2 Megapixel -- and before the November firmware that improved image and color quality tremendously.

Matterport to Google Street View>4K Quality? DanSmigrod 4 4 monthsMetroplex360 (5686): Matterport's 2K tiles are capable of generating a 8192x4096 panosphere. The actual DPI represented in the data might not align 1:1 -- but the quality since November's firmware upgrade is fully sufficient. I just re-read my comments that Dan posted. I think it would be awesome if Matterport did indeed release a new camera to the public on January 2018 like I said a long time ago. Then I would be like Dan "Nostradamus" Smigrod who...

Matterport Google Street View Announcement? DanSmigrod 5 5 monthsRichierichks (280): I think he is new, but the bottom line is he misunderstood my question.

Matterport versus Google View Senojev 5 6 monthsMetroplex360 (5686): @fragache Businesses like Street View Business View (aka 'See Inside Tours') because their Google local listing will display with a 'See Inside' icon that launches a virtual tour directly from Google. Offering an enhanced tour via Matterport or iGuide with the added value of a Street View tour is an EXCELLENT way to get businesses to adopt these technologies. Unfortunately, yes, the Matterport Terms of Service states that extraction of the...

Why Google Will Acquire Matterport DanSmigrod 22 9 monthsmori (334): Currently the dollhouse view and mapped 3D data from Matterport is a nice gimmick, but not essential for business solutions. You could create a similar quality just out of high resolution camera pictures without the need of capturing 3d data. Also with depth data and pictures taken with a TANGO device. Besides the key target audience of Google are huge large scale places with "shopping opportunities" like airports, train...
Inputting a tour into Google street view Dolloff 4 1 yearWashingtonState360 (37): By the way, to become a GTP (Google Trusted Photographer), doing standard "photo-spheres", you'll need to attend a training and sign an agreement, which binds you NOT to do those at, i.e. museums and some other locations (which is why I didn't become one yet). Yes. They have a special group doing those. Maybe eventually using a Matterport process would void that portion of the terms, but in the interim, traditional pano-spheres are...
