Choosing a new camera can be daunting as there are hundreds of models to choose from and thousands of features,  most of which you may know nothing about. When choosing a camera you need to have a good idea of what you want your camera to do, and the features you want, this will help guide your decision.

At Scan-FX we produce 3D scans of a space, to do this we use a Matterport camera. A Matterport is a three-dimensional camera system that creates realistic, fully-immersive virtual experiences. Viewers can explore the location from a variety of viewpoints and get a feel for the space without having to travel. 

Using Matterport to create 3D renderings of spaces can benefit a wide range of industries. A Matterport is used for a large variety of purposes, some of these include real estate, constructions & restoration, travel & hospitality, facilities management and architectural design. 

You simply scan each room or outdoor space using the Matterport capture app, or a compatible smartphone, then upload the data to their online platform and allow their Cortex AI to do the rest for you.

The matterport camera can scan any space from a room in a home to an entire office building. Matterport’s Cortex AI will do the rest of the work, this turns your scan into an interactive 3D model. This camera can identify objects in rooms and stitch all of your scans together to reconstruct your space into an immersive virtual tour. There is an additional feature which automatically blurs our people’s faces and focuses on the most appealing aspect of the photo. It converts 360 panoramic images into 3D spaces and is capable of extremely accurate measurements of walls, doorways and other elements of the property so you can get a realistic sense of the dimensions of the space.
