As you have all guesses by now the new iris360Pro via the OneStopVR will offer a ranges of application extras first. First and foremost the ability to backup and restore any model, which is something any camera should have offered from the get go. OneStopVR will also offer the user that ability to ajust the image quality of each pano that includes blurring. You’ll also be able to add tags or hot spots to any pano which can include, links, audio, video as well as other requirements as needed. White label will be standard so you can label you models with your or your customers branding.

These are just a few of the features which OneStopVR will offer. Release dates on both camera are still being determine.

I am not an expert on 360 but any that I have come across online havent even come close to Materport when it comes to transition between scans, you either move to fast or too slow or end up in another room.

What are your thoughts on whether the iris360 can do regarding this.

Will it be better than matterport is the question I suppose

I agree with 3Dshowcaseuk, if it doesn't have the Travolta Dance moves like Matterport, then it doesn't matter how many features it has, Cool is just..... Well, Cool i guess. And someones either got panache and style or they dont. Matterport has that, no doubt

Here are the details on both cameras

iris360Pro https://www.nctechimaging.com/iris360-pro/

LASiris VR https://www.nctechimaging.com/lasiris/

There's still not firm dates for the release of either camera at this point.

NCTech will be show casing the cameras in several cities once they are released.

I love the demo site, but I've got to say - it has a single sensor on each side (compared to Matterport shooting with 15 at once in a single direction). I hope they are as good as they look, but looking at the camera, I can't imagine how it will compete with 1/15th of the "eyes" Matterport is using. Who knows....sometimes tech borders on magic! If it works, I'll be the first in line to buy it!

Perhaps this is what one of my clients was referring to. I haven't seen the links yet but will definitely check them out.

Ok...I checked it out. I'm stupid. I don't understand all the techy stuff. The price is astronomical. What will Realtors pay for this, what will need to charged to make it make sense?

I'd need to see a side by side comparison vs Matterport.

Looks intriguing!

One thing though... Despite the mention of 90 MP and 120 MP HDR resolution, the demos they have on the webpage don't look to be high quality photo imagery but rather look more like Matterport's 3D mesh (albeit much better quality). I wonder if there's a better picture quality that it also offers?

I love the fact that everyone can moan about matterport forever but as soon as it comes under even the smallest of threats us MSP's stand up to defend it!

@GarySnyder So they haven't actually released their VR tour template yet then? It looks very interesting.....

@Gary thanks a lot
I hope they will deliver a product same level as MP. Maybe not better quality but at least we can have those optionals that our clients requires and we can't give (and would help us get more business!)..if yes, there will be a major getaway from MP.

@hometakes that is correct they're working on it as we speak and I can't give you a firm date when it will be ready but when it is there will be a full demo of the app along with a few live presentations in the States.

Thanks @andreabortolot I'll keep everyone here informed as things develop as it will definitely be worth the wait.

You're not stupid. The product page says a lot and doesn't actually show the results.

Hi all, we were not going to make any announcements regardsing the cameras till Apr at the earlest but due to the fact we were one of the main partners discussed at Google Cloud Next 2017 with our launch of ColorCloud the issue came up at the event what cameras were going to use the new ColorCloud application and we were forced to disclose our two new cameras. That is why the pages are still light on information.

We will be expanding information on both cameras as well as showing demos of the quality of the camera soon. We'll also be doing some roadshows across the States to include Atlanta for hands on demos of the camera and our OneStopVR app. If you want to stay up to date on all developments you can register your interest on the NCTech website. I hope this answer you current questions regarding these exciting new cameras as well as our OneStopVR app which will bring major improvements to the VT & VR marketplace. Just stay tuned as 2017 will be one hell of a ride with NCTech.

@garysnyder Do you think that when this product is released that it will be a way better experience than Matterport?

@Metroplex360

RE: What demos?

Imeant toward the bottom of the page (https://www.nctechimaging.com/lasiris/)where it has the animation with the title: "Automatically create VR Tours" as well as the one below where it reads "CloudColor® Processing Built in".

@GarySnyder I was not aware of the fact that you worked for NC Tech Imaging. I know you as the creative force behind MP2VR. I feel like we might need a proper introduction here on the forums

@Metroplex I work as a Marketing and Business Development Consultant for them and have had an association with them for some time now as their new products were being developed. We all agreed that we would not say anything about these developments till they were ready for sale but due to the fact that NCTech are a major partner with Google and one of the main headliners of the Google Cloud 2017 event last week with our announcement of our new ColorCloud app in San Francisco, Google kind of forced our hand in exposing the cameras and OneStopVR early. I'll be updating the forum as we get closer to delivering these exciting new products to the creative community

It's not really a 'new player' though is it? NCTech have been around for ages and as others have pointed out, the iris360 pro is just an upgraded version of the camera they've had on the market for 4+ years. We tested the iris and concluded whilst it's good, the delivery of the pictures and ease of use was so far behind any other cameras that they badly needed to upgrade, which they seem to have done.

As for the other piece of kit, looks great, really good tech but $13000? Sure this will keep out of the hands of 'everyman' but it will then mean the cost of your tours will be double what an MSP will charge. And what is it that's stopping 3d virtual tours becoming ubiquitous? the cost. It's nothing to do with the visibility of the MP logo or the ability for people to back up models, it comes down to money.

We're not wedded to any tech and will happily take on any competitor provided it's as good a delivery as MP, and by that I mean, it works on multiple systems, it looks slick and is affordable.

Dollars and cents....dollars and cents. Supply and demand.

Thirteen THOUSAND dollars!?! THIRTEEN THOUSAND DOLLARS!!

Metroplex and I can dis/agree whether I'm 'smart' or not but this 'new' system needs to be:

- TWICE AS *VISUALLY* APPEALING VS MP
- FOUR TIMES FASTER THAN MP
- FOUR TIMES CHEAPER THAN MP ON THE BACK END
- UNLIMITED UPGRADES FOR LIFE (SOFT/HARDWARE)
- ABILITY TO OFFER AUXILIARY SERVICES (EX. FLOOR PLAN CREATION)
- COMPATIBLE WITH ALL PLATFORMS FOR DISTRIBUTION (zillow, trulia, realtor.com, etc)

Right now, today, I see absolutely NO VIABLE business plan what would support the investment regarding the real estate industry.

Thirteen THOUSAND Dollars!!??

My other concern is the QUALITY of the end product. I take pictures for client and let's say the quality, for explanation purposes is a 10. When my clients upload their pictures into their local MLS, the picture quality is completely downgraded...a five at best. They are then distributed to the auxiliary third party sites.

It's a shame that Realtors spend money on 'great' pictures only to have them look horrible for the pubic to see.

I still have an open mind but I will say that I don't give a S!@#%^ about all the 'tech' stuff. Instead...

Is the end product better and is there a market for it at the price that will need to be charged?
