The NCTECH LASiris VR is a 3D reality capture camera that combines vivid 120-megapixel HDR imagery with a 100-meter-range LiDAR scanner, blending 360 imaging with colorized point cloud output for 3D visualization.

LASiris VR is useful in applications already using terrestrial laser scanning technology, such as surveying, engineering and construction. It is also intended for those looking for simple and economical access to reality capture, particularly those involving virtual reality, augmented reality and mixed reality.

Easily controlled via an app from any smartphone or tablet, LASiris VR is suitable for:

  • Facilities management, where asset owners, facilities and project managers can easily collect their own realistic, as-built visualizations of a site.
  • Stockpile measurement, where its simple operation means in-house staff can capture their own point cloud and calculate volume.
  • Security, policing and public safety, where timely data collection of a scene can be highly beneficial for crime and accident scene documentation and fire or disaster documentation.

In support of its new VR cameras, NCTech is also launching a new cloud-based platform for backing-up, processing, and sharing VR harnesses the processing power of Google Compute Engine’s infrastructure capabilities, combined with Intel’s advanced hardware. Using, point cloud data and images uploaded to the cloud are automatically mapped precisely to the depth data, delivering automatically colorized point clouds.
