Firmware update - better color capture for your Spaces!

We are excited to announce that our new camera firmware is here! Firmware is low-level software inside the Matterport Pro Camera to manage the hardware components.

In addition to many small improvements, this version specifically includes:

  • Improved color handling, greatly reducing yellow patches
  • Improved performance in LED-heavy conditions, preventing LED banding

The firmware (v1.1.423.14201.xxx) is available now and is a recommended update for everyone. To install on your Pro Camera, please follow these steps:

  1. Download the new firmware
    • Connect your iPad to external WiFi (not the camera WiFi)
    • Open the Capture app and login to your Matterport Cloud account
    • Wait a few minutes (the firmware will download in the background)
  2. Connect to your camera
    • In Settings, choose your Pro Camera in the WiFi network list
    • Reopen the Capture app
  3. Update your firmware
    • Tap Update Now on the dialog box
    • Tap Update Camera on the 2nd dialogue box after the update is finished transferring
    • Tap Done
  4. Reconnect to your camera
    • Wait approximately 5 minutes and look for the orange WiFi button to blink on the back of the camera; this signifies the update is complete
    • Reconnect to your camera in the WiFi Settings menu
