Forrester Research reports 55% of global software technology decision makers are already adopting digital twins1. As an industry leader, Matterport saw 52% growth in total subscribers in the second quarter compared to the year ago period, and already serves 23% of the Fortune 1000 with its digital twin platform.
“Today marks a pivotal breakthrough in 3D technology with the introduction of the most powerful products Matterport has ever created,” said RJ Pittman, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Matterport. “Our new Pro3 camera and cloud platform create some of the world’s most accurate, immersive and stunning digital twins.

Matterport for Enterprise
Digital twins empower business leaders to confidently navigate an uncertain economic environment while accelerating the productivity of a mobile and remote-first workforce; 79% of business leaders cite cost savings and 71% point to operational efficiencies as the key drivers of their digital twin investments2. It’s why the new Pro3 camera and cloud platform were built for the demands of enterprises with scalability, reliability and security at the core, making Matterport’s digital twin platform one of the most trusted in the industry.
The new Pro3 camera and cloud platform advancements make it easier than ever for customers to create immersive digital twins. Customers across sectors – factories, retailers, hotels and airlines – report digital twins have reduced project times by 30% and cut travel expenses by up to 50% through greater remote collaboration. One commercial real estate customer reported closing sales up to 85% faster. Hospitality customers find bookings and occupancy rates increase 14% for properties with a digital twin. The benefits aren’t just for large enterprises – real estate agents using digital twins win up to 74% more listings and 71% of residential buyers say they would buy a home sight unseen if it had a 3D digital tour.
The Matterport Digital Twin Platform
Matterport has reimagined the cloud software platform that creates, publishes, and manages digital twins of buildings and spaces of any size or shape, indoors or outdoors. All of these new capabilities integrate seamlessly so customers can securely create immersive environments for their employees, customers and partners to collaborate and explore.
- Maximize productivity from a single digital twin with a new workgroup collaboration framework called Views, to enable groups and large organizations to create separate, permissions-based workflows to manage different tasks with different teams such as: virtual inspections, remote training, space planning, personalized virtual tours, and so much more.

The Matterport Pro3 Camera
The Matterport Pro3 Camera provides the highest accuracy digital twins of indoor and outdoor spaces
The Matterport Pro3 Camera is the most advanced Matterport 3D capture device with a powerful combination of sensors working in harmony to create stunning images, both indoors and outdoors. No other camera combines the incredible power of this device at this price point, making 3D capture more widely accessible.
With a custom 20 megapixel sensor and 12-element lens covering an ultra-wide angle, the Pro3 camera produces accurate, detailed digital twins in brilliant, life-like color. Breakthroughs in the high-precision LiDAR sensor enable the capture of millions of measurements in various conditions, from dim light to direct sunlight, up to a range of 100 meters at less than 20 seconds per sweep.

The Pro3 camera revolutionizes 3D capture, setting new standards for speed, fidelity, versatility and accuracy. Where interactive mesh previously had a 50k polygon limit, it is now unlimited and the mesh for large spaces can easily exceed one million polygons. New digital twins are now streamed on demand as the user moves through a space, available on mobile and web platforms for all users for faster load times, quicker frame rates, and much more detail without compromising performance.
Matterport’s Cortex AI engine is upgraded to capture 5x higher range, enabling customers to transform their interior and exterior spaces, even when encountering difficult foliage, lighting and reflective surfaces. The combined power of the new Matterport Digital Twin platform, Pro3 and upgraded Cortex AI result in some of the most accurate, immersive and stunning digital twins ever created.
“The Pro3 camera reflects years of advanced R&D and listening closely to our customers. The result is a breakthrough in 3D capture technology,” said Lou Marzano, Vice President of R&D and Manufacturing. “The demands of the digital-first industry push our product standards to new levels, making precision, range, and mobility critical to our customers’ success. We put all of this together into a portable device that achieves a new threshold for price-to-performance of commercial LiDAR capture. Some of our largest enterprise customers have already put Pro3 to the test – capturing large outdoor venues from stadiums to campuses with speed and accuracy never before seen. Like the Pro1 and Pro2 that came before it, the Pro3 camera is in a class by itself and I am so proud of the team behind yet another industry first.”
