3. identify the stakeholders
4. identify the use cases for the Matterport 3D Tour and MatterPak during the customer journey
5. discuss challenges, opportunities and additional gear needed for Matterport Service Providers

84% of photographers that have a Matterport camera upload to Google Street View.

---

Hi All,

"We found, in a survey that we ran in 2018, that 84% of photographers that have a Matterport camera upload to Google Street View. We also found in that survey that 71% of photographers that use the Google Street View function with Matterport have found it the fastest way to upload to Google Street View," said UK-based Matterport VP James Morris-Manuel at the 2019 Google Street View Summit in an interview with WGAN-TV.

If you are not using Matterport to publish to Google Street View, why not?

Transcript of WGAN-TV Interview (Above)

Hi, I'm James Morris-Manuel, I'm the VP for Europe, Middle East, and Africa for Matterport and we're at the 2019 Google Street View Summit here in London. It's been a very exciting two days. We've been talking about lots of different contents and how things can be uploaded and provided to Google Street View.

Just to talk you through where Matterport's at, this is our workhorse camera, this is the Pro2 Camera that Matterport has designed and invented. We have changed the way our business ingests content in the last couple of quarters so essentially we now can accept content from the Ricoh Theta V and the Ricoh Theta Z1 as well as the Insta360 One X.

You can capture content with these devices, upload it to the Matterport platform. Our AI then makes that become 3D so you get the full Matterport 3D experience that you're used to with the Pro2 camera. From there, you can then upload to Google Street View.

We found, in a survey that we ran in 2018, that 84% of photographers that have a Matterport camera upload to Google Street View. We also found in that survey that 71% of photographers that use the Google Street View function with Matterport have found it the fastest way to upload to Google Street View.

It's been very useful for travel and hospitality especially, where clients have captured the lobby and then uploaded the lobby of a hotel to Google Street View. Also, with leisure and some of commercial real estate as well. Thank you very much.

Hi All,

"Matterport is the industry leader for residential real estate and a very big percentage of our business is in that market," said UK-based Matterport Vice President James Morris-Manuel at the 2019 Google Street View Summit in a WGAN-TV interview.

"... we're also moving into travel and hospitalityarchitecture, engineering, constructioninsurance, and a number of other verticals because the application of Matterport is so broad, essentially any physical assets can be copied and we can make a digital twin and that can be represented online."

Transcript of WGAN-TV Interview (Above)

Hi, I'm James Morris-Manuel.

I'm the VP for Europe, Middle East, and Africa for Matterport. And just wanted to talk a little bit about some of the things that we're focusing on in EMEA at the moment.

So few different core focuses. Obviously, one is geographic expansion. At the moment we sell into four core territories.

The first is the United Kingdom and English-speaking Europe, so some of Northern Europe. The second is France and the French-speaking Western Europe. The third is the DAC territory, so Germany, Austria, Switzerland and some of Eastern Europe, and the last is a Southern Europe, so Spain, Italy, Portugal, are the four core markets that we sell into.

So that's the geographic expansion that we're looking at.

And then the other piece is the segment development or the new verticals that we're going into.

So as everybody knows, Matterport is the industry leader for residential real estate and a very big percentage of our business is in that market.

But we're also moving into travel and hospitality, architecture, engineering, construction, insurance, and a number of other verticals because the application of Matterport is so broad, essentially any physical assets can be copied and we can make a digital twin and that can be represented online.

Thank you very much.

Scanning a multi-million dollar, ocean-front home in real-time: Video 1 of 4

---

Hi All,

St. Simons Island, GA-based Matterport Service Harlan Hambright scanned a multi-million dollar, ocean-front, 5-bedroom, two-story, beautifully decorated home on Sea Island, GA yesterday (Wednesday, 28 August 2019).

During this nearly three hour Matterport scan, I interviewed Harlan about what he was doing (and I added my own color commentary too).

These 4 sequential videos were shot in real-time.

You scan see Harlan's Matterport 3D tour here: WGANexample.com

While our intended audience are newbie Matterport Matterporter that have done zero to five Matterport scans, its likely that even seasoned Matterport Pros - like you - would find these videos helpful regarding techniques, gear, best practices from a Matterport Service Provider that has scanned 850 locations since he bought his Matterport Pro 3D Camera in August 2015.

What did you learn by watching Harlan scan this home?

Best,

Dan

P.S. These videos will be publicly viewable until 30 September 2019 in the WGAN Forum. The videos will then be viewable exclusively in the WGAN-TV Training U (in Matterport). (50+ Hours of Matterport training, including scanning, Matterport Workshop 3.0, Matterport Capture App (and much more) to help you succeed faster.
