MELBOURNE, AUSTRALIA – DECEMBER 19TH, 2017 -- This week, C.R Kennedy, Australia’s largest survey and construction technology supplier and Matterport, the leader in 3D immersive media technology, announced a distribution agreement to offer Matterport’s 3D reality capture for the Australian architecture, engineering and construction (AEC) industries.
The Matterport 3D reality capture camera and interactive hosting solution will be of immediate benefit to clients in the building and construction industries that need to capture projects both during construction and as part of an as-built handover. The Matterport Pro2 3D Camera captures 2D photography and 3D data from job sites, and automatically stitches them into a complete, immersive 3D model of a real-world job site that you can share, annotate, and export to a variety of products such as Autodesk ReCap® or Revit®.
“Matterport is excited to have C.R Kennedy be our lead strategic partner in Australia for our AEC customers. Their stellar reputation and long history of providing solutions for the AEC industry in the region makes them a valuable partner for bringing Matterport's game-changing 3D scanning, reality capture and construction documentation experience to our customers,” said John Chwalibog, Director of AEC at Matterport.
C.R Kennedy supports the recent partnership between Leica Geosystems and Matterport, which will allow users of the Leica BLK360 to combine data with Matterport’s Pro2 3D camera using the Matterport Capture app. This will deliver a fast, simple solution for creating, modifying, distributing, and navigating immersive 3D and digital images for the AEC industries.
With nearly 750,000 models created across 80 countries, Matterport’s unique solution has revolutionized the way businesses across industries convey information about their spaces.
Matterport is an immersive media technology company that delivers an end-to-end system for creating, modifying, distributing, and navigating immersive 3D and virtual reality (VR) versions of real-world spaces on the Web, mobile devices, and VR headsets. The Matterport Pro2 Camera and Cloud Services make it quick and easy to turn real-world places into immersive virtual experiences.
