Spatial capture firm Matterport has forged a new partnership with virtual reality staging provider VRPM.



The firm has created a tool that can place computer-generated furniture into a 3D environment captured from a real space by Matterport’s technology. This allows VRPM to create more economical immersive virtual reality tours without staging real furniture in an empty space.

Empty commercial or residential spaces captured with Matterport technology can be fully staged virtually by VRPM within 96 hours.

Third-party partners like VRPM are now able to use Matterport’s digital twins and spatial data to create new tools for the industry that other Matterport users will be able to access as well.

“VRPM’s service is a great example of how our partners are increasing the value of Matterport digital twins and spatial data,” said Matterport chief executive, RJ Pittman. “Our platform approach helps developers and partners play a key role with Matterport in digitizing the built world.”

VRPM’s founder and director, Mike Merron, said: “We have created a range of highly effective virtual staging tools for residential and commercial properties, drawing on our team’s expertise in augmented reality and 3D.”
