Is Matterport Officially saying it's winter? VTLV 2 4 daysMetroplex360 (6346): @VLTV - It's very safe to assume that Matterport to Street View is not vaporware. If you hit "view source" on my.matterport.com you'll see a different story if you dig enough.
Google Street View - Loaner Camera erikolsonmba 5 6 dayserikolsonmba (25): It took about 4 months to hear back so be ready to wait.

And yes, the tour that you reference WAS done with a Matterport Camera prior to Matterport asking me to stop offering my 'MP2SV - Matterport to Street View' service as it was a Terms of Service violation. 360 Snapshots CAN be used with GSV although the resolution is below the ideal size that Google recommends.

Ricoh Theta V: First GSV Mobile Ready Camera DanSmigrod 5 3 monthsMetroplex360 (6346): I am curious to know if this camera has a better depth of field than its predecessor. I also predict that this will be a perfect device for third party experiments with ARKit. It's that fuzzy feeling depth of field that killed my interest in the Theta S. I ordered it, used it twice and it's been sitting in the bag.

Where Are You Publish to Street View? LeventeSolczi 6 5 monthsMetroplex360 (6346): "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 Google Street View Beta Program DanSmigrod 13 5 monthsAlex_iGuide (247): If you ever find a ball head drifting under weight even when locked well, check that the ball did not get grease on it from inside the head. You can clean it using rubbing alcohol - wet a tissue, slide into the opening in the head where you see the ball, rotate the ball around, then let it dry. It is important to buy a ball head rated for the weight of the equipment plus some safety margin. That means having a larger ball diameter.

Why GPS on the Matterport Pro2 3D Camera? leonvanzweel 10 6 monthsMetroplex360 (6346): @Property3DNZ - Nothing has changed. GPS is not being used for automatic location information -yet-. @leonvanzweel - Nothing has changed. GPS is not being used for 360 Views yet. One thing that GPS can do is establish true north, and I would guess this is going to be used for GSV for aligning the tour with the map.

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
Matterport Pro2 GPS: Why this Matters DanSmigrod 3 7 monthsDanSmigrod (13075): Hi All, Imagine that you shoot Matterport: scans indoors and 360º photo spheres outdoors. Today, it is ckludgy to "walk" indoors/outdoors as easily as you do "walking" within scans only. While the 360º photos are discoverable in highlights reel, it's awkward. Now image that since GPS enables Matterport to know exactly where the 360ºs are located, I imagine that in a TBD back-end release, Matterport will enable us to...

Matterport: Virtual Store Integration DanSmigrod 4 7 monthsViewing (580): I've investigated at length about ecom integration. It's the original reason I bought a camera, thinking to a time when mattertags are more dynamic and, as we can all see, it's getting there. If you could add one or multiple XML feeds to a tag we're off and running. This is well within the capabilities of the wizards at Matterport.
How to Charge for MP to Google Street View DanSmigrod 5 7 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,...
How Matterport Should Charge for Street View DanSmigrod 4 7 monthsViewing (580): We'll have to wait and see what the nominal fee is. I just can't get my thinking away from the fact that we would be paying Matterport to publish their own 3D tour to Google. Bill Google if they're going to bill anyone. Don't bill us or the client by default as it's neither ours nor the client's 3D tour to publish to Google Street View. The greatest respect as always and I do appreciate the staff commitment to making GSV happen. We shouldn't be...

DanSmigrod 10 7 monthsjustinv (1000): @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: Google Street View Auto Ready Cameras DanSmigrod 4 7 monthsjfantin (1147): Dan Did they say anything about how or when we will be able to upload new Street Views? Up until today we know that we can create virtual tours of different business but we never were able to upload "streets". As I previously said, this is really huge because the target market grows exponentially. I already have a camera that is compatible with this Auto Ready standard, so in theory could start selling this new service tomorrow...

Granted that any tech is outdated from the minute you purchase it, it's a matter of making the most out of it as soon as possible. Thanks for the reports!
Video: NCTech Announces iSTAR Pulsar 4K/360º DanSmigrod 4 7 monthsDanSmigrod (13075): @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

4 Reasons Buying a Matterport Camera Rocks DanSmigrod 3 7 monthsDanSmigrod (13075): @Metroplex360 Matterport APIs/SDKs are way overdue.

DanSmigrod 10 7 monthsMetroplex360 (6346): 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.

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...

Why Google Will Acquire Matterport DanSmigrod 22 1 yearmori (478): Currently the dollhouse view and mapped 3D data from Matterport is a nice gimmick, but not essential for business solutions.

Besides the key target audience of Google are huge large scale places with "shopping opportunities" like airports, train...
