The Evolution of Our Mobile Cyber Scanning Rigs
”In 2007, my team and I envisioned 3D scanning not merely as another tool in a broader toolchain but as an avenue to produce unique content in its own right. Our aim was to capture moments in an instance in their entirety, akin to a photograph, but enriched with full 3D geometry. To actualise this vision, we pioneered some of the first commercially available photogrammetry camera array systems, harnessing the power of standard DSLR cameras in an array. Since no ready-made solutions existed at the time, we had to innovate at every step. From calibration techniques and specialised photogrammetry software, to data management processes and novel post processing workflows, we had to craft bespoke solutions at every juncture. While the industry has evolved significantly, the foundational principles and processes we established remain intact. At Visualskies, innovation is ceaseless. Our existing equipment ranks among the world's best, and our forthcoming innovations promise to redefine cyber rigs for years to come.Callum ReidMD Europe
