Filter Digital launches new Matterport 360-degree capabilities

Filter Digital are now providing a Matterport camera system to compliment Hotel Room Chooser capabilities.

2018 saw the launch of a new Filter Digital platform: Hotel Room Chooser. This game-changing customisable online platform ultimately means that hotel guests can choose their own rooms before checking in.

Hotel Room Chooser currently provides guests with a visual choice of location for their room booking, so they can pick the best individual room or environment for their stay and enjoy complete peace of mind. Guests using the service are presented with bespoke interactive floorplans, photography and more so they have everything they need to choose the room they want. The entire experience is also optimised for mobile.

To compliment the offering, Filter Digital have invested in a Matterport camera which can now scan a Hotels in-house capabilities. Matterport is a three-dimensional camera system that can create realistic, fully immersive experiences. We use this tool to capture imagery, collect measurements and process data to create, edit and share a 3D rendering of hotel rooms, event spaces and more.

With the addition of using the Matterport camera system, viewers can now explore available hotel rooms from a variety of viewpoints, learn more about the aspects of the rooms location and get a feel for the space without having to physically travel there.

We are seeing first-hand the benefits this new functionality is bringing to the current Hotel Room Chooser offering. The benefits are clear:

  • Matterport is extremely versatile and therefore allows us to scan virtually any space
  • You can view each hotel room from virtually any angle and get a 360-degree view while exploring from a first-person viewpoint
  • Matterport can create highly realistic virtual environments that make the viewer feel like they’re really in the location
  • The precise camera system also produces spatially accurate schematic floor plans
  • By adopting the Matterport functionality, it also demonstrates that you are a business engaged with the latest industry trends and technologies, keeping ahead of your competitors

Our belief is that with the availability of the Matterport camera system, as part of the enhanced Hotel Room Chooser product, Hotels and Resorts will now be able to showcase future travellers exactly what they have to offer. With the professional images provided by a virtual 360 tour, we are confident that it will increase conversions from interest into final booking sales.
