Spheron-VR partners with Leica Geosystems to offer 3D / HDR-colour point cloud


Germany: High Dynamic Range (HDR) camera technology provider, Spheron-VR AG has formed a partnership with Leica Geosystems on Wednesday. The partnership is formed to deliver a joint solution to generate the ultimate 3D / HDR-colourised point cloud.

Leica Geosystems is trusted by professionals worldwide to help them capture, analyse and present spatial information. SpheronVR is using this partnership to offer SpheronLite solution, which is the highest quality colourised point clouds that are now possible with any of the Leica Geosystems P-Series ScanStations.

With the new SpheronLite camera combined with the Leica ScanStations, point clouds are realistically colourised for easier data interpretation in Cyclone and Cloudworx software and more vivid TruView depictions.

“Leica is delighted to offer its HDS customers the best-in-class HDR imaging technology to deliver results that are unmatched in the industry” said Jürgen Mayer, Business Director HDS, Leica Geosystems AG .

Cyclone now automatically imports the SpheronLite full dome panoramic images and automatically matches them to the point clouds created by the ScanStation for faster and more accurate deliverables.

The SpheronLite solution is a unique camera device designed from the ground up for taking outstanding, full-spherical 360° x 180° High- Dynamic Range images automatically. The system captures incident real-world HDR over the full dome in a single pass and creates a unique single image data file.

“Users can expect highest quality, geometrical accuracy and lighting analysis to deliver exceptional results” said Gerhard Bonnet, CEO, SpheronVR AG.
