On WGAN-TV Live at 5 (5 pm ET) on Tuesday, 28 February 2023:WGAN-TV: Tom Sparks (Sparks Media Group): "I Paid $299 for a Matterport Digital Pro Package for a Real Estate Listing: What Every Matterport Service Provider Should Know"To help you decide if Matterport Digital Pro is a threat to Matterport Service Providers (or an opportunity or no impact at all), I reached out to Scan Your Space (a Division of Sparks Media Group) Founder and CEO Tom Sparks offering for We Get Around Network to pay a Matterport Digital Pro package ($299) in exchange for Tom documenting the experience for the WGAN Forum community (and publishing the digital assets in the WGAN Forum).I could imagine understanding the Matterport Digital Pro experience -- from an actual shoot -- would provide insight regarding if Matterport Digital Pro services powered by VHT Studios (a division of Matterport) is a threat or opportunity.BackstoryEight months after Matterport announced it acquired VHT Studios (7 July 2022), Matterport launched its Matterport Digital Pro "all-in-one" solution for real estate agents powered by VHT Studios.Matterport Digital Pro offers the following package for $299 (with optional add ons):1. Matterport Tour2. 25+ Photos3. Schematic Floor Plan (B&W)4. Teaser VideoI could imagine that $299 is less than what the majority of Matterport Service Providers charge for (what might sound like) a similar package.When Matterport made this announcement on Wednesday, 15 February 2023, two different WGAN Forum discussions were started about, is Matterport Digital Pro a competitor to Matterport Service Providers? Specifically:1. Matterport Digital Pro - your direct competition2. Video: Matterport launches all in one solution, should you be worried?Tom is uniquely qualified since he has documented shooting the same house with five Matterport capture solutions:1. Matterport Pro3 Camera2. Matterport Pro2 Camera3. Matterport AXIS Kit [Motorized Mount (smartphone rotator)]4. Ricoh THETA Z15. Insta360 One RS 1"How about the same house done with Matterport Digital Pro Package to be able to compare apples-to-apples, I asked Tom.Among the questions that I will ask Tom on WGAN-TV Live at 5 are:1. What was the Matterport Digital Pro ordering experience like?2. How long from ordering until the photographer showed up and how long to deliver the assets?3. What was the Matterport Digital Pro scanning experience like (including which camera)?4. What's the deliverable process like?5. Your thoughts about how Matterport Digital Pro compares with a MSP (like you) shooting with a Pro2 or Pro3?6. How does the job delivered by Matterport Digital Pro Package compare to your services?7. Will you outsource large Matterport scans to Matterport Digital Pro since they say same price regardless of SQFT?7. Other thoughts?

WGAN-TV Live at 5
WGAN-TV Training U (in Matterport)
Matterport hit a grand slam home run with the design, build, distribution and pricing of the Matterport Pro3 Camera for Matterporters around the globe.
The Matterport Pro3 Camera solves 10 problems and enables at least five new use cases for Matterport Service Providers (MSPs). 
While the Leica BLK360 image laser scanner paired with the Matterport Capture app solves most of the following challenges with its LiDAR scanning tech for capturing spatial data (versus the Matterport Pro2 3D Camera’s structured light tech), the BLK360 $20,400 starting price – versus the Pro3 $5,995 starting price – is simply too high (and capturing spatial data too slow) to scale a global network of Matterporters with the necessary image laser scanner required for scanning much of the built world. 
Until the Pro3 announcement on August 30, 2022, that was a big-big-big problem for Matterport.
Given Matterport’s ambitious plans for its Matterport Capture Services On-Demand program - now in 150 plus cities among seven countries – and the challenges of the Pro2 and BLK360, my only surprise about the Pro3 is that it took Matterport so long to introduce it. For more on this topic, please see my post in the We Get Around Network Forum in January 2022: Why Matterport will Build and Sell a Leica BLK360 Clone for Less Than $7,500.
Unlike Leica that likely needs to make a profit on each BLK360 LiDAR scanner sold, I could imagine that Matterport is uniquely positioned with the Pro3 to sell at or near cost because Matterport has additional fly-wheel revenue stream opportunities from scanning spaces, including:

RICOH THETA unveils new 360-degree camera model: THETA XHitting the market in March 2022, the advanced model features many firsts for the brand including a large touch screen display for enhanced usabilityTOKYO, Monday, Jan. 24, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Ricoh Company, Ltd. (President and CEO: Yoshinori Yamashita) today announced the launch of the RICOH THETA X. Designed in pursuit of enhanced usability and outstanding quality, this advanced model joins RICOH THETA's series of 360-degree cameras that shoot immersive still images and videos in a single shot and is equipped with many firsts for the brand: a large touch screen, interchangeable battery, and external memory card.Experience the interactive Multichannel News Release here.The RICOH THETA X's most innovative feature is the 2.25-inch full-color touch screen display, making standalone camera use much easier by reducing the need to connect to a remote control or smartphone app. Other first-time function additions include an interchangeable battery and an external memory card for more efficient and reliable shooting. Smartphone connectivity has also been improved, as the RICOH THETA X no longer requires the need to enter an SSID when establishing a Bluetooth connection. RICOH THETA X also boasts real-time stitching capabilities with stabilization, removing the need to stitch videos – this improves the processing time of 360-degree videos on computers drastically."Since RICOH THETA released the world's-first 360-degree camera in 2013, it has been utilized in a wide range of fields to expand the possibilities of photographic and video expression. The pandemic caused an even greater need for immersive imagery and virtual tours to boost business efficiency, especially in the real estate, construction, design, and automotive industries—and we only expect that to expand into additional industries," said Shinobu Fujiki, General Manager of RICOH Company's THETA Business division. "As we strive to meet the needs of our customers through the innovation of our digital devices and services, this camera is designed to help streamline workflows and deliver high-quality imagery for business users and consumers alike."
