Preschool Marketing Dept. Concerns 3SixtyNow 3 1 monthOpenHouseOptics (34): Statistics show that people go where they are familiar - if anything, them seeing it online will encourage a site visit AND increase enrollment because parents feel like they KNOW the environment. It's based on the same psychology we use when teaching fire safety or mass panic situations, look for the exits that are OPPOSITE of where you came in because people will go the way they are most familiar.
LIDAR Scanning with Drones DougTse 2 2 monthsfrstbubble (271): Depending on the desired output requested you shouldn't need LIDAR pictures should be good enough. If you are looking for wire connection issues then infrared would be best.

RV Dealership ArtisticConcepts 9 3 monthsMetroplex360 (4999): Wow, I was proposing much less to RV Dealerships as my pricepoint on smaller tours is $0.20/sqft. Smaller RVs would clock in at 100SQFT, and $20 didn't make sense, so I established a flat rate lowest pricepoint. The example by @ArtisticConcepts is VERY nice. The RVs I shot were VERY small and Matterport struggled to shine in the small spaces. I felt that using a Ricoh Theta S and building a custom tour would be better for that client. With...
Video Day in the life of a scanner 1 min. GeorgeK 8 3 monthsDouglasMeyers (172): Nice video, I just have one question. Why is you camera so high up on the tripod ? I notice when the camera gets so high when you pull photos from the tour they seem to be looking down at a room not eye level. I use mine at about 5'5" and my photos look stright on not like a person looking down at a room. Maybe it's just me.
Matterport launch Rich Media Mattertag Posts nat_vanveen 11 3 monthsPanoraman (7): Hi @Metroplex360, we are following these new features closely. I hope this will be integrated soon in MP, also allow us to add HTML code in iframe so we can integrate more than video and text. I have a client that even wants to hide a wheel of fortune in the space to play out tickets and goodies. I saw a lot of interesting whish lists on the forum, these are my favorite and personal 3D showcase requests: -custom branding for...
InsideMaps vs Matterport Mario 20 3 monthsDanSmigrod (10966): @dorlando My impression is that all Spaces, including homes, can now be published to Google Street View. That's why I imagine that Matterport will enable easy, fast and ($$$) to publish to Google Map. And, that we will see Google acquire Matterport. 😎 The first, big step forward will be Matterport making their API public. Dan

You can read about the application I mentioned earlier over here. It will. That's the only reason I invested in the Matterport camera. They told me the that while in beta, the service will be free.

Inman report on Realtor.com 3D integration EricThomas 1 8 monthsEricThomas (112): Posted today [Thursday, 10 November 2016] in the daily Inman report: Realtor.com’s 3-D integration Realtor.com, on the other hand, is reportedly gearing up to integrate 3-D tours into its site. It currently only lets agents add links to 3-D tours on listings. But Matterport, a leading 3-D provider, is working with realtor.com’s product team on how to increase their accessibility, Matterport CEO Bill Brown said. Agents say 3-D tours...

Pro Tip: How To Find Plagiarism RenderingSpace 5 8 monthsVRealExperience (115): Nice job rendering. I must admit, when I first started and tried getting the word out, I almost did this. Then I thought, and decided against using the old "How would I feel". I settled that if I ever wanted to I will seek permission, as that's what I would want". It was this very experience, that made me rethink my whole strategy. I decided to go big or go home, and now am hiring a professional web developer/hoster, and...
Matterport is the Gold Standard davidpylyp 3 8 monthsVRealExperience (115): I agree with the product and solution, but their support is lackluster. This is not a personal shot at the people they have in support, but more the way their support is structured and operationalized Forget 24x7 which I think should be a given for them - but how they offer support in general. It's really only email and in some cases 4 days go by. Does anyone know a single real estate agent who is also patient? Most "Sales"...
I see a link for Real Vision (Toursler)? MadHusband 13 8 monthsExpertise (103): The new gen real.vision looks pretty good to me. I already have Canon DSLRs, just need a fisheye lens and a few accessories. I could then shoot a house in 1 swoop, and generate a 3D tour, floorplan and pretty high quality stills from that 1 shoot. So... my math tells me that instead of spending maybe 60 minutes shooting an average house and 90 minutes "Matterporting" it I could just do BOTH in 60 minutes. That's worth something....
MP Facebook AD 4 Display App and a Video GeorgeK 3 9 monthsGeorgeK (553): I looked for the advertisement again but it has dropped off my Facebook page, it was a sponsored "feed' and those fall off. If I see it again I will post it. It was most likely directed or to Realtors so I bet I see it again. The person has to write to them to get the app.
Hurricane Season is Here! JonJ 2 9 monthsChemistrydoc (190): Jon, This is a great idea. My recent background is in the construction area, specifically hurricane shutters, wind abatement and other similar. Your best bet would be to contact insurance providers who regularly deal with higher $ homes - Lloyds of London, AIG Preferred Clients Group and similar. I don't think they would mandate the use of Matterport, but they could certainly recommend it. Keith

The guy living across the street from me has 135 Remax agents. Why would I try to sell him a camera when I could do the work for him? If I had only found out what he did a year earlier...

Single page listing htimsabbub23 5 1 yearJonJ (874): I provide them to my clients and they are included with the virtual tour. They don't cost me anything since I am now using the WP3D plugin. If they want a custom url (.info), I do charge a small fee ($10). It is a great way to drive additional traffic to your website instead of to Matterports. They usually have a sign rider that they put in the front yard to get attention to the neighbors and anyone driving by looking at houses in the...

Matterport Enters Australian Market Mikesobay 5 1 yearShane (91): Agree also with Marcel. Vendor pays. Agents like the idea of the Matterport Scan but don't see it as their cost nor understand how it sets them apart from others. I worry about my investment as the Scanning is the only service I offer. No use getting into photography as the market is already covered. It will only be a short time that the large photographic companies buy into the Matterport scanning and offer as another of their packaged...

Matterport Hosting should be Bandwidth Based Metroplex360 11 2 yearsJamie (1525): @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)

I met with one of the countries largest real estate brokers here and they were trying to work out how much it cost for them to back out of a deal they signed with a 360 photo company because they liked the Matterport captures so much better. 360 photos have terrible problems with fish-eye; the photo is projected on to a 3D sphere and...
