Visuals are essential to any listing.

Today, there are more photography options than ever to fully capture the quality, comprehensive view that streamlines this search process for both real estate professional and client alike. There’s still photography, 360, 3D and that’s just to name a few. As a result, it raises the question; what’s the difference between them all?

Companies like Ricoh Imaging and Matterport are at the forefront of real estate innovation in photography. This discussion will be led by their very own, Rebecca Norton (National Account Manager, Ricoh) and Gregory Youngblood (Sr. Director Product Marketing, Matterport), to answer not only that question of what’s the difference between all the image technologies but also how each is best implemented.
