Commentary and Analysis by

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:

WGAN-TV How and Why to Create ADA Compliant Matterport and Other 3D/360 Virtual Tours
Hi All,✓ What is the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA)?✓ How does the ADA apply to Matterport and other3D/360 Virtual Tours?✓ How do you create ADA compliant Matterport and other 3D/360 Virtual Tours?✓ What should every Matterport Service Provider and other 3D/360 Virtual Tour Service Providers know about ADA?My guest on WGAN-TV Live at 5 (5 pm ET Thursday, 19 March 2020 is Barnes Creative Studios Founder Steve Barnes (@BarnesCreative). Barnes Creative Studios has created an exclusive ADA compliant player to make Matterport and other 3D/360 Virtual Tours - accessible to Americans with disabilities.The WGAN-TV Live at 5 topic is: How and Why to Create ADA Compliant Matterport and Other Virtual ToursIf you have enterprise clients or prospects, it's likely that you will be asked about how to make the Matterport Digital Twins ADA compliant. Over time, it's also likely that other existing or potential clients of your Matterport Tours will ask about ADA compliance.“Under the current law, there is an incentive for plaintiff’s lawyers to file ADA access lawsuits: hotels may be required to pay a disabled person’s attorney fees even if the hotel agrees to correct any problems right away," says FindLaw.Even if you do not have enterprise clients such as a major hotel brand or cruise line brand, this is a "must watch" WGAN-TV Live at 5 show.Here are questions that I anticipate asking Steve:1. What is the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA)?2. How does ADA apply to Matterport 3D Tours?3. What is the Web Content Accessibilities Guidelines (WCAG)?4. How does the Website Content Accessibilities Guidelines apply to Matterport 3D Tours?5. Why should I care about making Matterport 3D Tours ADA compliant? Enterprise clients and prospects?6. Can you speak about this from a disabled person's perspective?7. Can you speak about this from a lawsuit perspective?8. How and why did you decide to build an ADA compliant virtual tour player9. Please demo your ADA compliant, custom-built embedded virtual tour player10. Please demo the Video Guided Tour Button11. Please demo the Audio Description Button (Screen Reader)12. Please demo the Read Transcription Button13. Please demo how to return to the standard virtual tour Button14. What does "level double A" compliant mean? Other levels?15.

Barnes Creative Studios (BCS) has developed a solution to make ADA compliant virtual tours. ADA (The Americans with Disabilities Act) compliance means making your service or product accessible to people with disabilities and it was amended to include websites in 2008. Hotels are increasingly aware that non-compliant websites make them potentially liable for lawsuits and fines, and many have implemented standards to comply.Up until now, there was not a streamlined solution to make virtual tours compliant. BCS has created a solution. Introducing an embedded player which not only provides AA compliant virtual tours, but also can be used for older virtual tours you already have in your catalog. Also, as an added bonus your search engine optimization will be amplified.See a list of past and current lawsuits on the ADA website that includes many hotels and resorts.BCS Has an Exclusive Player that Adheres to Accessibility GuidelinesBCS exclusively provides our custom ADA compliant virtual tours that adhere to the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG). WCAG define how to make web content more accessible to people with disabilities. Accessibility involves a wide range of disabilities, including visual, auditory, physical, speech, cognitive, language, learning and neurological.BCS offers a solution which directly adheres to the “WCAG 2.0 guidelines 1.2 for time-based media: providing alternatives for time-based media”. This includes “audio and/or video combined with interaction”. The accessible alternative version of our ADA compliant virtual tour contains:✓ Alternative Pre-Recorded Video Guided Virtual Tour✓ Transcript✓ Audio Description (Prerecorded)✓ Live CaptionsAll of the above is delivered in a custom-built embedded player that hosts both media items. Firstly, it includes the standard virtual tour and secondly the alternative accessible version that is ADA compliant. For example, below is an ADA compliant virtual tour from the Four Seasons Punta Mita Mexico.
Added SEO value for ADA Compliant Virtual TourAs a result, for having compliant virtual tours on your website your search engine optimization (SEO) value will be supercharged. SEO is successful when you have contextual elements attached to rich media, for instance, like transcripts and detailed descriptions. With our ADA compliant virtual tour the added context from the WCAG 2.0 guidelines makes your content fuel your web page resulting in successful SEO.Barnes Creative Studios looks forward to help your hotel reach compliance with ADA standards. 360 Virtual tours are a unique user driven media and BCS is dedicated to making these experiences available to as many people as possible.Private Message Steve Barnes at @BarnesCreative for more information.Source: Barnes Creative Studios Blog Post

Hear about a Matterport Service Provider alternative to Airbnb, VRBO and other major players
---
 
@ArtisticConcept Writes
So, in my region, one of the biggest segments of the hospitality industry is Cabin Rentals. One of the biggest problems that I encounter when I scan a rental cabin is that despite having an amazing 3D Matterport Tour with social sharing urls and embed codes the property owner is often met with a cold shoulder from their listing site.While some of the key players in the hospitality industry are flirting with the idea of allowing Matterport into their ecosystem, many see how powerful 3D tours are in booking more stays and they are fearful of guests bypassing their system to book directly with the owner or another one of their agents.I’ve heard it said “If you can’t beat ‘em, Join ‘em” well, we’ve been trying to “Join ‘em” too long! I say, “If you can’t join ‘em, beat ‘em!”An idea hatched in my mind after my first cabin scan. The client went from occasionally being booked to being booked solid for three months when they promoted their cabin with our TriReality Matterport Tour solely through Facebook. That got me to thinking. What if there was a site that was known for having 3D Tours of Rental Cabins and people would know that that’s the place you go when you want to see your vacation spot in “Real Life” before you even book it?I’ve just launched my first Kickstarter campaign for 3DCabinTours.com
