Insta360 today announced the integration of its Insta360 ONE R camera with Matterport, the leading virtual tour platform for the real estate industry. With the Matterport Capture beta release, Insta360 ONE R users can now create Matterport virtual tours.
“Insta360 ONE R is great for shooting Matterport virtual tours because of its speed, which sets it apart from other virtual tour camera options. It has the ability to capture a scan position in 3 seconds, enabling users to capture 1,000 square feet in just a few minutes,” said Indy Sen, Vice President of Product Marketing at Matterport.
According to Insta 360, the integration makes virtual tour production easier at a time when virtual tours are in higher demand than ever. Matterport has seen more than a 100 percent increase in 3D models created on their platform since March, due to COVID-19 travel restrictions and social distancing guidelines. “We’re looking forward to helping real estate professionals overcome challenges and realize new opportunities to use property technology to support their clients,” said Sen.
The integration is now in beta through Matterport’s public Test Flight beta program, with the full integration available in October on iOS. To celebrate the integration, Insta360 and Matterport have also partnered together to offer 10 percent off the Insta360 ONE R Virtual Tour Kit and a free 2-month trial of Matterport from now until September 17.
