Matterport Releases Pro2 Lite, Its Most Affordable Camera for Capturing Properties in True3D
Immersive 3D Media Technology Company Offers New Lower-Cost 3D Camera, Making 3D Technology More Accessible to Everyone SUNNYVALE, Calif., Feb. 15, 2018 -- Matterport, an immersive 3D media technology company, today announced the Pro2 Lite, its latest and most affordable camera. At $2,495, the Pro2 Lite makes the power of 3D technology more accessible than ever. The Pro2 Lite delivers the same fast and easy-to-use interactive 3D walkthrough experience and high-resolution 2D photography capabilities as the Pro2 model. With its push-button simplicity, the Pro2 Lite requires no training, weighs less than the Pro2, and offers the same high-quality imaging that is synonymous with Matterport. Unlike other companies that claim to provide "3D" tours, but are actually offering 360 panoramas that create a disjointed user experience, Matterport walkthroughs are True3DTM. Matterport's industry-leading technology creates fully immersive 3D experiences, as well as a unique 3D "dollhouse" view, which offers smooth transitions from room to room, conveys an immediate understanding of scale, and illustrates spatial relationships within a property. True3DTM space capture is becoming the baseline for property marketing, communication, collaboration and documentation, in real estate, retail, travel and hospitality, architecture, engineering, construction, and insurance. The Pro2 Lite will help fuel that momentum and will support Matterport's mission to democratize 3D technology by making it more affordable. Customers can now set themselves apart by showing their clients that they invest in the best technology, all at a lower cost to get started. The key differences between the Pro2 Lite and the Pro2 are a shorter battery life and a different pricing structure for creating content. With four hours of battery life, a Pro2 Lite user can scan up to 8,000 square feet of space before charging the battery. The Pro2 Lite is a great option for businesses who are just getting started with Matterport, but still want to offer their clients the best 3D technology available. "Matterport offers the world's most advanced 3D reality capture platform for businesses that want to interact with clients and partners in immersive True3DTM," said Bill Brown, Matterport CEO. "We are excited to now offer a version of the Matterport Pro2 camera at a price point that makes 3D even more accessible. Immersive 3D media is on track to replace 2D photography as the digital medium to communicate about properties, and the Pro2 Lite will help to accelerate that shift." The Pro2 Lite release comes on the heels of Matterport's announcement that the company has enabled publishing of Matterport scans to Google Street View and rolled out significantly faster "capture" capabilities, which allow users to capture immersive 3D experiences as well as 2D photos in less time than it traditionally takes to capture just 2D photos. This dramatically increases the usefulness, as well as the ROI, for customers. The Pro2 Lite will be shipping in March and is available for pre-order here.

The new Pro2 camera generates high quality 4K 2D photography, in addition to state-of-the-art 3D and VR walkthroughs and floorplans -- all from one device.

The all-in-one camera, together with the Matterport Cloud, offers customers an end-to-end solution for capturing, distributing, and visualizing properties, in 2D, 3D, and VR. The 134 megapixel camera now also features built-in GPS technology, which enables automatic tagging of scan locations. "The Pro2 is a breakthrough solution for anyone who needs to convey what it's like to be in a space using multiple online and offline channels," said Bill Brown, CEO of Matterport. "Never before has there been an all-in-one camera that generates print-quality photography, high-quality digital images, a full-color 3D interactive floor plan, an immersive 3D/VR experience, and more, from one device and one visit to the property. And best of all, it's incredibly easy to use." Introduced in 2014, Matterport's unique 3D media solution revolutionized the way businesses in various markets, including real estate, travel and hospitality, architecture, engineering and construction, media and entertainment, and other sectors, share the details of their properties. To date, over 500,000 properties have been captured, generating more than 170 million views across 80 countries. With the Matterport Pro2, customers can create high resolution print images and digital 3D experiences with the same push button simplicity. The Matterport Pro2 enables camera operators to expand into new verticals and additional segments of the market, and more efficiently deliver services to their clients. Until now, people marketing a space had to budget for 2D photography and a 3D Space separately. With the Matterport Pro2, they can get both 2D photography and a 3D Space for one low cost. Key features of the Matterport Pro2 3D Camera include: 4K resolution capture for printing, as well as digital photos and spherical images Generates 360 views and spherical images for easy space communication Automated generation of color 2D and 3D interactive floor plans Optional 2D schematic floor plan creation Built-in GPS for automatic tagging of scan locations Access to storytelling features including rich media tagging in 3D Distribution features including syndication and social sharing Core elements of the Matterport solution: Automated end-to-end processing meaning it's push button simple for the user Simple iPad Capture app makes operation quick and easy for anyone Little to no training required to operate The same high-quality 3D sensing capability as the original Matterport Pro camera Convenient and portable "As real estate professionals, we must embrace technology to stay competitive. By providing both traditional and innovative visual assets from one device, Matterport helps to bridge the gap and be a one stop shop," said John De Souza, President at Cressy & Everett Real Estate. "Matterport has helped my team win listings and reach more buyers, and is a must-have for anyone in the real estate industry." Another benefit of the Pro2 Camera is that it captures an entire property in a 3D model that can be revisited online at any time, allowing users to generate additional photos without having to reshoot the space. Research by Matterport found that two-thirds of photographers using traditional 2D cameras often wish they had captured something additional after the photo shoot. Businesses using Matterport will benefit from the recent partnership with Google Street View. Starting this summer, Matterport scans can easily be published to Google Street View with the click of a button.
