I will Dennis, will take a few snaps and see what the fuss is about ;)

I thought they were going to do a slam device but as they built a new scanner you surely see TLS isn't dead by any means.

Additional information from Riegl News

My understanding is that the 6Kgm weight includes the dual batteries.

We need to check out the internal cameras, integrated GNSS and mobile mapping applications. Can we use an internal SIM card for RTK?

Lovely looking piece of kit, it will be interesting to see the data and a bit more detail about what they mean when they say 'ready for mobile mapping applications'. If it had a vehicle mounting option similar to the Beemobile / Faro combination it would be very interesting indeed. That aside, it looks like a strong competitor to the RTC360.

With only a quick look, it looks like a nice scanner, but certainly not revolutionary, or "way out in front of it's competitors". The only thing I see that is an improvement over competitors is capturing photography and scan concurrently, cutting capture time down from 1'22" on an RTC360 to 30" at the same resolution and image capture. Yes, it's more than twice as fast, but for someone who started scanning doing 1.5 hour long scans, we're really slicing the pie thin here, where the reduction in scan time is at the point of diminishing returns.

A big issue for me is that it still has Riegl's limited 105° vertical field of view, that does not capture features directly above the scanner and leaves a huge hole beneath. For use in the building market where you are often working in tight, confined areas, this is a huge limitation in my mind. I'm sure there are technical design issues at work here, but it seems to me like Riegl started down this road a long time ago and has stubbornly decided that it's not an issue.
Jason Larson, PLS
