Matterport Introduces Pro2 Camera for All of Your Marketing Needs

Matterport, the leading immersive media technology company, changed the way people sell and buy houses. In 2014, they released their original Matterport Pro 3D Camera that showed the entire world that there is a better way to show the real estate properties. Unlike still photos and videos, their immersive 3D tours were innovative, trendy, and more efficient.

The camera was a huge success, but the company kept improving their software and hardware - in May 2017, Matterport introduced their Pro2 Camera, 134-megapixel all-in-one camera for real estate photographers. In addition to making their cutting-edge 3D tours even better, Matterport introduced new features as well that include high-resolution 2D images and 3D and Virtual Reality walkthroughs, 360 images, and better online zoom capability.

Another cool feature is a GPS chip that makes it easier for frequent users to match shoots to properties. Not long ago, Matterport also announced that they partner with Google to enable 360-degree 3D viewing directly from within Street View so that this feature can be the first step toward their ambitious goal.

The Enhanced Functionality of The Pro2 3D Camera:

Matterport was one of the first companies to offer a unique camera and proprietary software to create Virtual Reality walkthroughs, immersive 3D tours, and 360-degree tours. Since 2011, the Matterport software platform has only gotten better, as CoreVR, Multimedia Mattertag™ Posts, and 360° Views were introduced. While their software was updated regularly, the hardware remained the same.

The original Pro 3D Camera introduced the stunning 3D experience and was used worldwide, but it lacked a few essential features, such as high-resolution still photography.

For many clients, enhanced stills are still the most important part of a marketing package, with 3D growing in popularity. Sometimes, customers who are on a budget choose to spend their money on enhanced stills to avoid the added expense of 3D tours. With Pro2, you don’t have to choose anymore.

The latest hardware improvement to the Matterport media system offers the whole package, both interior, and exterior, for less. Thanks to the new camera, your client will get both, avoid the print/digital dilemma, and save money at the same time. Each of the Pro2’s three sensors has been updated, so the new camera can now capture stills at a 4k image resolution.

Along with a stunning 3D tour, your clients will receive high-quality 2D stills they can use in the listing or on their website. It’s a winning situation for everyone that allows real estate agents and home owners to focus on all aspects of a real estate listing at once.

The Pro2 Camera is an innovative device. Its main goal was to improve the overall quality of 2D still imagery for customers who are still using print mediums in addition to the 3D tours.

8710 Photography, a professional real estate photography company in Minneapolis, was one of the first to test the new equipment and offer their clients captivating 3D, VR, quality 2D floor plans, high-resolution print-ready photography, and all other features that the new camera has to offer.
