Matterport Virtual Tours

A Matterport camera

UK based Matterport photography

Soon we’ll be ready to offer virtual tours with the Matterport virtual tour system.

Matterport tours show off your properties in the best possible light. They’re so realistic they’re almost as good as being there.

This page shows a few examples that you can try out to see how the service works.

How the Matterport camera works

This system combines three normal cameras and three depth-sensing cameras. The device projects and detects a pattern of infrared light and uses it to compute a 3D point cloud. This 3D geometry is then combined with the visible light photography to make a ‘digital twin’ of the space, a 3D model that the user can move around in as they go from one 360° photosphere to another.

The 3D transitions between photospheres and the interactive ‘dollhouse view’ gives users a clear understanding of the relationship between rooms.

Sell or rent more effectively

As well as virtual tours being really helpful to potential buyers or renters, the more information they have upfront the fewer unqualified leads you’ll get.

Measure online

The Matterport camera understands 3D space and creates a ‘digital twin’ of the real property. You can take measurements with 99% accuracy and even download a 3D model of the space.

An intuitive 3D bird’s eye view of the property that helps buyers quickly get a sense of how the spaces fit together.

After shooting a virtual tour for you we can extract standalone high-quality HDR wide-angle photos from it. This means you can get your property photography done at the same time as your virtual tour.

Although you can request stills after shooting, if you’d like to include wide-angle stills please let us know before we visit the property as this will allow us to shoot at an ideal height for stills.
