If you are a Matterport Pro 3D Camera Photographer, you are in the right place – at the right time – with the right solution. That's because as exciting as Matterport 3D Showcase is (and it is very exciting), Matterport VR Showcase is crazy-exciting.
Like most Matterport Pros, we scan a house today and deliver our real estate agent clients our WalkAround™ 3D Tours – powered by Matterport – within 24 hours. Coming soon, we will likely be able to deliver Matterport Virtual Reality (VR) content fast too.
Virtual Reality explodes – in a good way – beginning this Winter – as a result of initiates by VR headset Goliaths Facebook (Oculus), Samsung, Google, Sony and HTC. Companies in many verticals – not just residential and commercial real estate – will be seeking easy, fast and affordable Matterport VR content creation solution service providers.
If you haven't already placed an order for a Matterport VR Showcase Beta to get your feet wet, now's the time. From the three VR Showcase betas that we have received from Matterport, we've have learned more each time. For example, the importance of scanning with the VR walking experience and quality of the mesh in mind; and preparing a version of the model specifically for VR (which scans to deactivate in 3D Workshop).
Plus, we've leaned about what Matterport related VR gear and accessories to buy and use: especially critical at the Beta testing phase to buy exactly the right make/model/carrier smartphone and the headset that pairs with that smartphone.
So, when Matterport offers an easy, fast and affordable commercial VR solution, we're excited and ready to offer this powerful solution to our clients. We are already meeting with our existing (and potential) real estate, hotel and television clients to demo VR and discuss how they can leverage it. And, we are participating in conferences and events to demo-demo-demo. And, also added an additional business development executive and Matterport Pro 3D Camera Photographer in our Atlanta office handle additional business.
