Which 3D or 360º Tour Platform is right for you? Kevin helps you decide.

---

 

Hi All,

Imagine shooting the same multi-million mansion with:

✓ Matterport 3D Tour
✓ GeoCV 3D Tour (including 3D aerial)
✓ Nodalview (360º Tour)
✓ Zillow 3D Home (360º Tour)
✓ Cupix 3D Tour

Greater Los Angeles Matterport Service Provider Home3D.us (@Home3DKevin Dole imagined that. And, except for substituting one house for one of the shoots, that's exactly what Kevin Dole is in the midst of completing.

Kevin will be my guest on WGAN-TV Live at 5 (5 pm ET | GMT -4) on Thursday, 21 March 2019 to talk about his experience with five platforms.

Among the questions I will ask Kevin ...

1. What was the learning curve for shooting?
2. What was the learning curve for post production?
3. What was the shooting experience like with each platform?
4. What was the post production experience like with each platform?
5. Show us each tour that you shot. Which do you like best and why?
6. What did you like/dislike about shooting each platform?
7. What did you like/dislike about post production for reach platform?
8. Can you tell us about the GeoCV aerial 3D shooting and post production experience?
9. What else would you like to share about your experience shooting/publishing with five platforms?

Kevin will be starting new topics in the WGAN Forum around many of these questions. I could imagine that each topic will be a single subject such as:

1. each camera/platform
2. comparing learning curve
3. comparing shooting experience
4. comparing post production experience
5. comparing 3D/360º Tours
6. overall conclusions and recommendations

This is an amazing labor of love for Kevin to shoot and publish with five different platforms. And, I am SO thankful that Kevin is sharing this amazing experience with the WGAN Forum Community.

This WGAN-TV show will likely be tremendously helpful if you are thinking about:

✓ which camera/platform to get
✓ adding a camera/platform
✓ switching a camera/platform
✓ what this other platforms are like

What questions would you like to ask? Please join us on the show and ask your questions live.

By the way, this project was made possible (in part) by the WGAN 360º Camera Loaner Program.

You can borrow a camera - free* - if you are a WGAN Basic, Standard or Premium Member.

If you look at a GeoCV created 3D Tour, on first glance, you might think it is Matterport. It's a David versus Golith Story.

--

 

Hi All,

If you look at a GeoCV created 3D Tour, on first glance, you might be thinking that you are looking at a Matterport Spaces 3D Tour:

✓ Dollhouse View
✓ Floor Plan View (with measurements)
✓ Walk Around View
✓ Photos
✓ Floor Plans

And, this tour was shot using an (extra smart) 3D-enabled smartphone.

On WGAN-TV Live at 5 (5 pm EST GMT -5) on Wednesday, 17 January 2018, CEO and Co-Founder @AntonYakubenko, PhD will demo and discuss GeoCV; including Matterport Versus GeoCV.

You can Join the Virtual Studio Audience to ask Anton questions directly.

Anton is one of the speakers at Inman Connect NYC 2018 (22-26 January 2018). He is on a panel: Visual Revolution: Breakthroughs in Virtual Reality 3D and Video. [Matterport CEO Bill Brown is on the same panel.)

I could imagine that Anton might give us a sneak peak of what he will announce at Inman Connect. 

So, why have you not heard about GeoCV? They have been focused on New York City while they have been refining their technology, value-proposition and marketing strategy. I could imagine that Inman Connect, Anton will announce that GeoCV is now available across the United States (and potentially, around the globe).

Here are We Get Around Network Forum discussions tagged: GeoCV

Some additional backstory from Anton's LinkedIn Profile:

"GeoCV is a venture capital backed 3D capturing VR / AR company. Our vision is to enable everyone to capture the world in 3D with a phone and share it in virtual and augmented reality. We're currently using 3D camera-enabled Google Tango phones.

3D virtual tours for real estate is our beachhead market. We allow agents and brokerages differentiate themselves to win more listings and get more referrals, attract more qualified leads to their listings to sell faster spending less time on unpromising in-person showings. We've developed an advanced automated technology for providing unique 3D virtual tours, photography and floor plans at the highest quality and at an affordable price."
