前易趣网产品总监RJ Pittman在3D捕捉公司MattPrt上掌舵-王其杉博客|程序员|科技新闻
MattPalt是3D图像捕捉技术的提供者,他任命前易趣网首席产品官RJ Pittman为新的首席执行官。
皮特曼将接管前首席执行官比尔·布朗的缰绳,他将继续向Matterport提供建议,因为该公司希望利用其三维扫描库。
The company currently has a library of 1.4 million three-dimensional models that have been viewed at least 600 million times since the company launched.
据《硅谷商业日报》报道,该公司从出售相机设备和软件服务到企业的收入为3300万美元的2017。
该公司成立时,创始人Matt Bell和David Gausebeck意识到商业潜力的运动捕捉和传感器技术,微软已经推出了Kinect相机在2010回到。
当时,该公司几千美元的硬件是捕捉图像的最前沿——现在它可以用软件和手机摄像头来完成。The march of technology has put Matterport in a somewhat precarious position, but the company continues to lock in deals with companies like Donan, an investigation service for insurers and others that look at fire damage.
The company has inked deals with a number of different enterprise customers — and even brought on State Auto Labs as a strategic investor earlier this year.
“Matterport has the opportunity to revolutionize how property risks are underwritten and claims are handled in the insurance industry,” Kim Garland, senior vice president, Commercial Lines and managing director of State Auto Labs said in a statement at the time.
In all, Matterport has raised around $77 million from investors, including State Auto Labs, Lux Capital, DCM Ventures, Qualcomm Ventures, Ericsson Ventures, AMD Ventures, AME Cloud Ventures, CBRE, Felicis Ventures, GIC, Crate & Barrel founder Gordon Segal, iGlobe Partners, Navitas Ventures, NEWS公司和稳健的合资企业。
Matterport’s hardware can digitally capture, document, visualize and collaborate around properties in 3D on web, mobile and in VR. And its hosted Matterport Cloud service automates the creation of state-of-the-art 3D models, high-quality 4K 2D photography, floor plans and other assets and stores them in easily accessible formats.
There’s still a lot of contested space in the collection and capture of the real world for use in augmented and virtual reality and the addition of Pittman should help Matterport as it looks at a much more crowded competitive landscape.
“RJ’s operating experience at scale, paired with his entrepreneurial DNA and deep product vision will be instrumental to unlocking the full potential of our breakthrough technology and unparalleled 3D media and data,” said company co-founder and chief technology officer David Gausebeck, in a 语句。
Indeed, Pittman discussed the importance of Matterport’s library when he spoke of the opportunity he saw for the company. “Matterport Cloud is an unrivaled dataset of precision 3D environments that represents an enormous opportunity to scale the company’s data services business exponentially. This will open up new strategic partnerships and investments as we realize the full value of this data,” Pittman said in a statement.
As an entrepreneur, product developer and real estate investor, Pittman is uniquely qualified to take charge at Matterport.
He previously worked on product, design, engineering and mobile payments at eBay and held roles at Apple and Google. In addition, he also co-founded and served as the chief executive for the search engine that created the industry’s first graphical information interface, Groxis.
Finally, Pittman worked on a number of real estate projects in the U.S. and UK, giving him insight on the role that technology can play in the new architectural landscape.
