Leica Geosystems partners with DotProduct LLC, SpheronVR AG to deliver new solutions, enhance productivity, quality

12 April 2016

Leica Cyclone, the market’s leading multi-sensor point cloud software, can now combine with DotProduct’s handheld 3D scanner and SpheronVR’s imaging solution to deliver superior end-to-end and integrated workflows.


“Our pursuit to enhance customer experience will see us continue to improve integration points and expand our solution portfolio to deliver efficiency and quality where it matters,” said Faheem Khan, vice-president, business development for Leica Geosystems High-Definition Surveying.


Augmented workflow
Using DotProducts’ handheld scanner, professionals can augment their 3D views of the world and capture/integrate hard-to-reach or obstructed objects with ease. Be it standalone or as an augmenting, infill 3D data source, professionals can use Cyclone’s suite of tools for analysis and deliverable creation, enhancing productivity with minimum field setups and reduced overall project costs.  
“We’re thrilled that Cyclone can now support DotProduct’s highly compressed data format. This opens up new vistas for the smart combination of handheld and terrestrial laser scanning workflows,” said Tom Greaves, chief marketing officer, DotProduct LLC.

Enhanced quality
SpheronVR’s sophisticated imaging technology delivers a new, high-quality option for colourised point clouds with any Leica Geosystems P-Series ScanStation. With the SpheronLite camera combined with the ScanStation, point clouds can be colourised with the most realistic HDR imagery for easier data interpretation in Cyclone and CloudWorx software, resulting in more vivid TruView web deliverables. Cyclone point cloud software now supports the SpheronLite panoramic images and automatically matches them to the ScanStation point clouds for faster and more colour-accurate deliverables.


“Users can expect best-in-class quality, geometric accuracy, and lighting analysis to deliver results that are unmatched in the industry,” said Gerhard Bonnet, CEO, SpheronVR AG.


See the new partnership in action at SPAR 3D Expo and Conference 11-14 April in Houston, Texas, USA. The Leica Geosystems Booth 603 will have hands-on demonstrations of the new technology for visitors to experience.
