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?

Join now and watch your business grow," says Andrew. "Our entire platform was designed with real estate photographers in mind.""I went from shooting no videos to shooting 5 a day in less than a year (and now have three full-time photographers," says Andrew. "I added over $10,000 extra revenue every month by adding real estate videos to my services and I had no knowledge at all on how to shoot the videos or how to edit them.""I will show you how to shoot real estate video just like myself and my photographers do, and give you access to the exact same platform and editing service I use, and you too can add between $5,000 and $10,000 extra profit or more every month," says Andrew.About Andrew Lampman-- I've owned a Real Estate Photography business for over 12 years.A few years back, when HDR photo and Cinematic Video Walk-throughs became popular with Realtors, I began to lose clients to local photographers because they were able to offer better services to my clients. I didn't have the skills to compete, nor the desire to shoot all day and edit photos and videos all night.Around this time, Greg, the owner of MyVisualListings contacted me. He informed me that they would be launching an in-house video and photo editing service. I knew that I needed to add quality real estate videos to our services, in order to be a front-runner in the industry. I began looking into updating my skills so that I could train my photographers to go out and shoot professional videos that would sell.1. I now offer the Highest Quality Photography in my area.2. All of my Media is presented on a beautiful Single Property Website.3. Our Real Estate videos have taken our area by storm.4, We have gained back our clientele and in addition, I get 10+ calls from new Realtors every month.5. The Custom Agent Outros MVL offers have given my clients the edge they need to stand out in a crowded market.6. I was able to add even more services to my portfolio because of MVL Media.7. I've also gained back valuable time with my family and increased my profits.8. We Now Shoot 2-5 Videos A Day & Earn Over $10,000 Extra Profit Every Month!

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:
