WGAN-TV eXp Realty Chief Product and CTO Scott Petronis on Matterport versus GeoCV and how smartphones will help make Virtual Tours ubiquitous

Hi All,

At an Inman Connect NY 2019 (ICNY19) Round-table discussion, eXp Realty Chief Product & CTO Scott Petronis talks about:

✓ GeoCV and integrating a fly-over
✓ Matterport versus GeoCV (lawsuit)
✓ Advocating for DIY by agents using GeoCV and other smartphone based virtual tour creation services
✓ Competition for solutions forces everyone to be better
✓ How smartphones will help make Virtual Tours ubiquitous

Note: Scott starts out talking about GeoCV.

What are your thoughts about this discussion?

Like I've said before, as it becomes easier and easier for agents to do it themselves, and it's "good enough" why will they need MSPs or anyone else to create their marketing materials.

I'm hopeful, but I still am having a hard time trying to see the advantages to those of us that are trying to make a living creating 3D virtual tours. Anyone want to buy my VCR?

@rzphotoman is it Beta or VHS😁😁😁😁

I still think up scale agents that sell premium properties will, but I hate to agree I think agents that have everyday medium priced homes in thier area will turn to the ThetaV and do it themselves.

I'll go one further,why have Estate agents in the everyday medium market? In the near future smart phone technology will enable the seller to photo stitch, upload, order & distribute their own content. Companies like Matterport, GeoCv & Ricoh to name a few will have an even wider consumer market to target & fight over. Matterport are scared of the on coming competition, that's why they're offering the insta/Ricoh package, therefore killing off MSPs, their future camera distribution sales,loyal customers. After the gunfight who's walking out of the swinging dooors? Matterport Geocv? Or will Apple,Samsung or Google walk all over them...
