LAKE MARY, Fla., April 26, 2016 — Faro Technologies Inc. has released the Focus3D X 130/330 HDR model 3D laser scanners for scenes with large brightness contrast differences, as well as Version 6.0 of its SCENE point-cloud software, providing instant rendering of scan data and simplified workflows. While typical digital images cover a contrast range of 255:1, these laser scanners capture brightness ranges of up to 4 billion:1. With its extended color resolution of up to 170 MP/scan, the scanners capture small details with clarity. SCENE Version 6.0 includes solid-surface rendering technology that eliminates the need for further data processing in visualization applications. In addition, BIM-CIM customers using laser scanners for as-built documentation and Public Safety customers in crash, crime and fire investigations will benefit from a simplified interface that uses workflow-driven tools.
