Matterport Expands 3D Reality Capture Platform in Greater China

Immersive media technology company Matterport, which is known for its professional-grade 360-degree cameras, has announced a new partnership today with Centaline Data Technology Limited and Centaline Property Agency Limited, a real estate agency based in China.

The partnership will provide the agency with Matterport’s interactive 3D reality capture and application platform, enabling its 60,000 professionals across 2,000 offices to capture immersive data for use in the Chinese market.

The partnership is another milestone in Matterport’s continued global expansion and initiative to further localize its product suite for key international markets, having earlier this year launched its official China content distribution network in partnership with ChinaNetCenter, allowing for quicker rendering times for Chinese consumers.

“As Matterport continues its rapid growth and international expansion, China is one of the next critical markets for us. We are extremely pleased to have found a strategic partner in Centaline Property Agency Limited that is similarly committed to our aim of transforming how people interact with and experience real-world spaces,” stated Bill Brown, Matterport CEO in a statement. “Our platform makes it fast and easy to create and share immersive 3D models of properties on the web, mobile and VR. We look forward to helping Centaline and its agents realize the full potential of how our technology can improve their business with all of their property listings.”

“The Centaline Property Agency is committed to making the home buying process as open, simple yet thorough as possible. Centaline Web now features the largest number property listings that include a VR experience,” said Mr. Wong Wai-hung, Chairman and CEO of Centaline. “Partnering with Matterport was an obvious step toward further securing our leadership in the marketplace and increasing the number of listings that feature VR.”

Matterport doesn’t just deal with real estate, its system has been used in travel and hospitality; architecture, engineering and construction (AEC); business listings; insurance; and facilities management, among others. The company’s network of 2,700+ service partners across 80 countries has helped capture over 700,000 spaces.

Earlier this year, Matterport announced a partnership with Google to enable the publication of immersive Matterport content to Google Street View, as well as an investment from Ericsson and updating it camera.
