About MATTERPORT

MATTERPORT is comprised of some of the finest product and engineering talent in the global technology industry. The company is located in San Francisco and Mountain View, CA and is focused on revolutionizing how we experience our world. MATTERPORT make possible totally realistic 3D experiences at a price that anybody can afford.

The MATTERPORT 3D System uses a patented camera, controlled through the user’s Apple iPad, to capture 3D and 2D images of an interior space. The camera rotates on a tripod that the user places around a room to capture every aspect of the space. MATTERPORT's proprietary technology then stitches together the data to create one complete 3D mesh with images overlaid onto all surfaces.  These models are then ready for users to walk through the interior, view as a doll-house, or see a floorplan through MATTERPORT's immersive online interface. The models also include complete linear and area measurement data. The resulting model can be viewed, modified, annotated, and shared using any computer or the Apple iPad.

MATTERPORT enables anyone to digitally reconstruct real-world spaces for use in VR, AR, web, and mobile applications, offering an unprecedented level of immersion and the most realistic sense of actually being there. Our MATTERPORT Spaces can be explored through our browser-based app, called 3D Showcase, as well as on highly immersive VR platforms, like Samsung Gear VR.

MATTERPORT's unique ecosystem gives people the freedom to experience any place, at any time. Our end-to-end immersive media platform is a quick, easy and affordable way to capture and explore real world spaces in immersive and photo-realistic 3D and VR. MATTERPORT Spaces have tremendous applications in many industries, including real estate, hospitality, travel, event planning, media and entertainment, architecture, construction, retail and many more.

MATTERPORT spans across a multitude of vibrant and diverse industries, including Real Estate, Home improvement, Furnishings & Decor, Property Insurance, Real Estate Management, Construction Management, Hotels & Vacation Rentals, Retail Space Planning, Forensics, Animation, Public & Private Security and many others.
