Areena4D From Veesus
LizQ is the most advanced scene capture solution we offer to document the scene. This camera is a high resolution 360°×360° HDR spherical imaging system that produces 500 megapixel results. Enjoy fast, simple to use, and reliable operation from initial set up of the equipment to the uploading of images; each step is fully automatic.
EASE OF USE AND ZERO SETUP TIME
The iSTAR 360 degree panoramic camera rugged, lightweight and has a small footprint making it easy to transport and deploy. With zero setup time, iSTAR does not require photographic experience to operate. With one-button capture and IP64 rating, it is fast and easy-to-use either indoors or outdoors.
STAR has been designed to provide rapid 360 degree imaging across a variety of applications in industries such as surveying, engineering, law enforcement, public safety, and media.
Typical applications for the iSTAR panoramic camera include 360 degree visual documentation of an environment to give a full immersive view of a scene with all aspects in full context, including linking individual panoramic images together as a ‘virtual tour’ (similar to Google Street View) to enable the viewer to ‘move’ between capture positions. iSTAR’s accurate calibration means that it can also be used in high precision applications such as external HDR (high dynamic range) imaging and colourisation for spherical laser scanning systems like Faro, Leica, Surphaser, Topcon, Trimble, Z&F, etc.
iSTAR images can also be used for photogrammetry applications, both image-to-pointcloud processing (for example, Agisoft PhotoScan) and also point to point measurements.
FAST, ACCURATE AND PRECISE
iSTAR has 4 x pre-calibrated sensors fully synchronised to deliver a highly accurate 50MP spherical image with excellent high dynamic range (HDR). iSTAR is fast at capturing images with typical capture times from around 5 seconds. As many as 50 to 60 panoramas can be captured on one battery charge. This can be increased to over 600 when using the optional external battery allowing you to capture throughout the full day.
Processing and stitching the images is also fast. NCTech’s desktop application Immersive Studio, which is supplied with iSTAR, can batch stitch images in seconds.
iSTAR is designed to be as data neutral as possible with output to connect seamlessly into your work-flow. The deliverables from iSTAR are industry standard compatible and can be used with the majority of existing application software. In addition to using neutral data formats NCTech also offers software development Kits (SDK) for producers of relevant third party software to run some core iSTAR functions run directly within their own software environment, eliminating unnecessary data import/export steps and thereby further increasing user efficiency.

R2S® has revolutionized the way data is recorded and presented and can be used to aid and support all aspects of planning, training and investigation. A high definition 360 degree, fully interactive, virtual walk through of an area.
R2S has revolutionized the way data is recorded and presented and can be used to aid and support all aspects of planning, training and investigation.
- High definition 360 degree images that create a fully interactive, virtual walk through of an area,
- Full measurement capability within spherical images,
- Drag and drop hotspots to embed or link to any relevant information such as videos, audio, 3D models, photographs, documents and URL’s.
The R2S system is technically advanced, but simple to use. The software enables all case-related material to be digitized, interlinked and shared across secure networks to maximize collaboration opportunities. R2S allows the latest evidence related updates to be instantly viewed and authorized by users in any location and also provides users with detailed visual and factual analysis of the area at any time throughout the project. It also delivers a permanent navigable visual record of that location or asset once a project is complete.
R2S scenes are populated with 'hotspot' icons that link directly to related media files. These can include documents, maps, plans, photographs, audio and video files - or any related forensic information relevant to the case.
R2S can be networked securely across an entire organization. The system ensures that any new information added by a user is instantly available to all other users on the secure network or stand alone version, greatly enhancing team collaboration. Select information can be published to an external storage or published PDF for use in briefing, training and presentations. All you need is Windows Media Player.
Arena4D is the name of the core product range from Veesus Ltd., and features client, server and plug-in applications. At the heart of all their applications is their cross platform point cloud rendering engine for viewing and editing large point cloud data sets in a wide range of common formats.
Whether you are a crime scene investigator, accident reconstructionist, engineer, surveyor, site manager or other end user, we have a solution to help you deal with the complexities of point cloud data.
EASE OF USE
Arena4D Data Studio is capable of visualising point clouds, imagery, panoramas, shape files, GPS tracks and much more all in a single contextual view. No need to swap packages to see all your data together. The unique contextual GIS platform allows you to combine multiple different data sets into a complete 3D document that you can share with fellow Arena4D Data Studio users.
Arena4D Data Studio allows you to markup, annotate, measure and even edit your point clouds too. They can then be exported in many common formats.
Also available is a powerful animation module that generates HD quality movies quickly at the touch of a button.
Arena4D Data Studio is the only point cloud editing software package which also incorporates Arithmetica's Pointfuse vecotrization technology and NCTech's Colour Cloud & Measurement modules. Our Rhino plugin also incorporates Pointfuse for rapid vectorization of point cloud data in the CAD environment.
