About Matterport

Matterport is often perceived as a camera manufacturer, but it is primarily a software company with a focus on Computer Vision, Artificial Intelligence (AI), and Cloud processing of spaces or objects within the built environment. The cameras sold by the company were driven by the need to create a capture device capable of delivering the data quality and quantity required to produce the sophisticated walkthrough experiences you see on the website at https://matterport.com/gallery/ at a price point suitable for the market audience.

From the Author

“From my days at Loughborough University studying Design and Technology to my work as a media producer for Airbus and Toyota Motor Manufacturing, the exploration of 3D photography, 360-degree technology, immersive experiences and photography is a significant part of my professional and personal life.  Matterport technology focuses on all of these in a single platform and therefore it was an exciting and, in many ways, obvious step for me to study Matterport in my next book.”– Peter Simcoe, Author of Matterport Handbook
