Pix 4D is expanding their enterprise toolset beyond their mapping roots – although the Pix4DMapper platform continues to evolve and improve, staying out ahead of the curve in accuracy and processing time. Now, the company announces the addition of a totally new generation of tools to the Pix4D suite: Pix4Dsurvey, Pix4Dmatic, Pix4Dinspect, and Pix4Dscan. See the video below for a teaser – and then read on for the details on how Pix4D is creating maximum value for enterprise drone teams.
The following is a Pix4D press release.
Lausanne, Switzerland, March 31st, 2020
Photogrammetry leader Pix4D is announcing today the commercial release of next-generation software addressing the modern-day professional challenges. Developed in close collaboration with customers and partners, Pix4Dsurvey, Pix4Dmatic, Pix4Dinspect, and Pix4Dscan will contribute to revolutionizing the way professional customers operate and deliver their services.
Digital photogrammetry is an essential part of every modern surveyor’s toolkit and has contributed to launching hundreds of new drone mapping businesses around the world. Pix4Dsurvey and Pix4Dmatic represent the next step in photogrammetry, addressing major challenges in the geospatial industry.
Pix4Dsurvey is bridging the gap between digital photogrammetry and CAD by transforming point data into CAD-ready formats. It allows the vectorization of any element, thanks to the rayCloud environment. Dramatically reducing overall surveying time, and expanding possibilities for surveying and mapping professionals, Pix4Dsurvey is now available for trial and purchase.
Pix4Dmatic, a new photogrammetry software product, will enable accurate drone mapping on a new scale. Built for the latest generation of drones, it is optimized for processing thousands of images while maintaining survey-grade accuracy, halving the time taken to deliver your large project from images to point cloud. Pix4Dmatic beta program is now open for applications.
In addition, Pix4Dmapper version 4.5, a new update of the leading desktop photogrammetry software, is now available for download. With speed-up in the image calibration and point cloud generation by an average of 20% in both steps, it now enables users to process projects faster than ever.
Manual inspection of industrial assets and infrastructure is time-consuming, expensive and at times dangerous. Current technology has reduced the danger but the process remains long and costly. Pix4Dscan and Pix4Dinspect will change that.
Pix4Dscan is a drone flight app designed to deal with complex structures. Pix4Dinspect cloud-based software is an analytics platform able to manage and inspect digital assets modelled with Pix4D’s best-in-market photogrammetry. Together they deliver an end-to-end solution for industrial inspections and asset management.
