Transcript (Video above)

- [Instructor] The Matterport platform is currently supported by four camera classes, the Matterport Pro2, Leica BLK360, 360 Cameras, and most recently the iPhone and iPad.

The Matterport Pro2 Camera is a True 3D camera and the gold standard for 3D capture.

It's perfect from simple residential to large and complex commercial spaces. No camera captures as much detail with the speed of the Pro2 while delivering exceptional dimensional accuracy and stunning image quality.

The Leica BLK360 is also a True 3D camera and designed for professionals in architecture, engineering, and related industries where dimensional accuracy is critical. The BLK360 has the highest measurement accuracy.

But despite its unrivaled measurement accuracy, the 360 panos produced will not have the clarity and color quality of the Pro2.

The 360 Camera class is perfect for capturing smaller spaces such as rooms and apartments where the highest measurement accuracy is not required since these are not True 3D cameras. Because these cameras capture the entire 360 sphere in a single shot, they are, however, the fastest camera class.

The iPhone and iPad are great for quick and easy scans of smaller spaces as those devices are always with you. However, just like the 360 Cameras, iOS devices are not True 3D.

We recommend using your iOS device to easily scan a space and share it with your family, friends, and colleagues. To learn more about Matterport supported devices visit
