OpenSpace, a global leader in reality capture and AI powered analytics, has recently announced platform support for the Insta360 Sphere, an easy-to-install, dual 360° camera that can be mounted to DJI Mavic Air 2 and Air 2S drones. When combined with OpenSpace's technology, drone capture with Sphere is simple and scalable, making 360° capture accessible to a broader corporate audience.
Sphere joins an increasing list of capture technologies supported by OpenSpace's platform, such as 360° cameras, mobile cameras, drone cameras, and LiDAR scanners, empowering users to capture in a manner of their choice.
The Insta360 Sphere integration produces a 360° view using two cameras, one upward facing and one downward facing, where the camera is rendered invisible in the capture, allowing drone pilots of varying levels of experience to capture all aspects of a job site without the need for additional flights. In addition, Sphere simplifies installation and flight with an easy locking mechanism and FlowState stabilization to ensure smooth filming.
OpenSpace is currently beta testing captures with the Insta360 Sphere in order to optimize calibrations, capture processing, image quality, battery life, ease of installation, elevated captures, and angle selection. Customers will be able to get Sphere support later this quarter.
OpenSpace Capture allows users to attach cameras to their hard hats, drones, robot, or other apparatus and walk around the site as they usually would. Once the video is sent to the cloud, OpenSpace's computer vision technology stitches images together and pins them to the floor plan regardless of where the camera is mounted, thus establishing a reliable visual record of the site state. Powered by the company's Vision Engine, the site image map is ready to view about 15 minutes after it has been uploaded.
OpenSpace, founded in 2017, is an AI technology firm on a mission to bring new levels of transparency and efficiency to the construction and real estate industries. It uses cutting-edge technology to empower teams to capture, evaluate, and complete their job efficiently. OpenSpace integrates common off-the-shelf 360° cameras, computer vision, and artificial intelligence, thereby making it simple to capture a complete visual record of a project site, share it over the cloud, and track progress remotely. The platform serves as a single source of information, increasing coordination, driving accountability, and simplifying conflict resolution.
