Hi All,

Matterport: Virtual Physical Store Integration

Hello Dan,

...

One big potential client that is in retail business asked me some questions about the future of Matterport and I wanted to share these with you.

Here are the questions:

1. What is our position in Matterport to Google Street View publishing? Can we expect it to start this summer?
2. Is it possible to create new revenue/promotion models by using Matterport's SDK platform? Are there any examples of Virtual Physical Store integration, E-commerce etc.?

I appreciate if you can share your knowledge and foresight to help me reply.
Thank you in advance.

Regards,

[redacted]

Great questions, I would love more details about the relationship between the published GSV space and the Matterport Showcase. (Will there be a way to jump between the two? Etc.)

First, about the original question, while Matterport announced, Video Interview) that Matterport to Street View Publishing arrives "Summer 2017" ... I could imagine that it will be September 2017 before it is public. Here's why:

Matterport to Google Street View: Sept 2017?

I encourage you (all) to manage your client expectations (since Matterport has previously made product announcements and significantly missed their promise dates.

Matterport's APIs/SDKs are not public yet. I could imagine that they will be made public at the same time that Matterport to Google Street View publishing goes public.

About Virtual / Physical Stores, I have seen at least one grocery store chain that is moving forward full throttle with adding rich-media MediaTags to Matterport Spaces. Imagine adding buy links.

@ArtisticConcepts While you can jump to Google Street View from a Matterport Space using a MatterTag link, Google Street View does not support annotation. The closes you could come is adding a logo/website patch in the bottom (nadir) of the Google Street View tour (assuming that Matterport enables this. For more on this feature, please see the We Get Around Network Forum discussion:

Matterport: Please do not screw this up ...

Best,

Dan

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.
