ems march 18 3L&M SURVEY INVESTS £1.2M IN SPHERON-VR SCENECAM ‘NIGHT TO DAY’ CAMERAS

L&M Survey Services has announced a £1.2m investment in 22 SceneCam Cameras and SceneCenter 2.0 content management software.

The investment in SceneCam spherical HDR (High Dynamic Range) imagery will provide L&M Survey’s clients with game changing ‘night to day’ Visual Mapping services. (Read More)
 
SceneCam will be used for a wide variety of roles including dilapidation and inspection services, VR content capturing, 3D from photogrammetry, site familiarisation and documentation.
 
The technology will also transform health and safety on site by enabling L&M Survey, its clients’ personnel and their partners to familiarise themselves with the site access points and track conditions from the safety of their desks, before they try to find, park and access in the middle of the night.
 
L&M Survey Services Ltd is a leading UK professional surveying business offering services for consulting engineers, rail, government agencies & utility companies.
 
The 22 SceneCam Cameras were acquired from L&M Survey’s new partner Spheron-VR AG, known globally as pioneers in High Dynamic Range (HDR) camera technology and experts in visual content management software.

L&M Survey Services Commercial Director Alasdair Kirkwood said: “Our initial decision to invest in SpheronVR technology came largely from the benefits we immediately saw in reducing risk for our own staff on site. We today view this technology, particularly in our primary area of expertise, rail surveying, as the biggest single contribution to rail staff safety since the invention of Hi-Vis: it allows our survey teams, our clients and their partners to visit the sites, familiarise themselves with the site access points and track conditions from their desks, before they try to find, park and access in the middle of the night.”
 
Alasdair added: “Our clients are constantly asking for more site information as this just saves time and money at every stage of the project. We now add the spherical HDR imagery to the normal topographic survey deliverables, 2D, 3D drawings and Revit Models, adding complete site full colour 360 tour with the ability to take dimensions from anyone’s desktop.
 
Any documentation can be attached to the spherical images, from survey data and drawings, as-built information, reports, safety notes or handover documentation. All in a simple to use interface that anyone can use without having a cad licence or specialist software from wherever they sit.”
 
The technology offers the capability of virtual onsite scene documentation. SceneWorks have tailored solutions for areas such as Rail, Nuclear, Oil and Gas, Utilities, Construction. BIM, and other Visual Asset Mapping applications.
