Accessed through FARO’s advanced workflows, Hybrid Reality Capture is the newest scan mode for Focus Premium Laser Scanner users. It combines the accuracy of a static 3D laser scanner with the speed of a panoramic camera. The unique combination of fast scans with colorized 360° images enables users to complete up to two weeks of on-site work in one week. Improving scanning speed by 100% means customers can complete projects faster without increasing costs.

“Hybrid Reality Capture is a best-of-both-worlds innovation that will improve on-site productivity and deliver state-of-the-art colorized visual clarity at a highly affordable price,” said FARO President and CEO Michael Burger. “Industries that have made tradeoffs between capturing 3D data accurately or quickly have been waiting for this hybrid solution and we are excited to bring it to our markets.”

Flash Technology will enable more frequent, faster data capture, requiring only 30 seconds per scan. Thanks to proprietary smart upscaling algorithms, the output includes all collected points, with images that look crisper than the same resolution scans with traditional methods. It will be available as an add-on subscription in the Stream mobile app.
