Matterport CLIENT asking about 4K3677

What would you say to a Matterport client asking to shoot in 4K?

Matterport shoots 6 2k tiles per tour for a combined 12k. In theory your client may see 4k when viewing a tour full screen.

Showcase has support for 4k tiles... And I think 8k tiles were added recently. I regularly check tours posted on to see if these tilesets are ever in use and if I can confirm the use of a newer model prototype. I will post of I ever do.

What would be nice is if matterport would add a quality toggle on tours similar to YouTube. Even though it does a nice job detecting the appropriate resolution, clients like yours would likely perceive added value in the platform by seeing this.

They are most likely mixing up matterport with a video. I get that all the time. Just need to educate thsm

I can show you the rig that I have organized for a client to shoot motion 4k, a few other options out there. Seems like one solution has emerged for matterport - but these are other one of my favorites is dark corner rig using A7 sony camera's.

So I've thought about this.

4K = 4,000 x 2,000 in a 2:1 ratio -- or 3840 × 2160 in a 16:9 ratio.

It is, as @Jamie pointed out, a term that is related to VIDEO, not to photography. Most photography exceeds these dimensions.

Matterport tours are displayed with 3 different sets of tiles depending on the device you are viewing on and your Internet speed -- just like how YouTube videos are available at different quality levels.

On a fast connection with a large screen, Matterport will serve you 2K tiles -- which means that the entire tour will be 6,000 x 3,000.

The maximum you could ever imagine viewing at once with a ridiculous fov would be 180 degrees -- which would mean the maximum that could be viewed would be a 3,000 x 1,500 image.

I'm not sure what the maximum FOV is off the top of my head, but I'm going to take back what I said earlier.

In no stretch of the imagination is Matterport 4K -- yet.

Thank you all for time and thought given to my posted question..but ultimately I think Jamie nailed it with the confusion of photography and putting my teacher cap on!..
