With the information readily available to your team, they will be equipped to make decisions more intelligently and quickly, staying ahead of any issues.

The Speed-Accuracy Trade-off has been resolved

Those in the precision measurement industry have long faced the challenge of balancing speed and accuracy. Faster scans often meant sacrificing point cloud accuracy. Slowing down for accuracy resulted in lost time and potential business. However, with Hybrid Reality Capture, Powered by Flash Technology, this trade-off has been addressed. Users can now enjoy up to 50% savings in scan times and reduced per-project costs.

Faster Scan Technolgy for Large Volume Projects

Thanks to the improved scanning speed enabled by Flash Technology, large-volume projects for Architecture, Engineering, and Construction and public safety on-scene applications have become a breeze, with scans completed in under 30 seconds. Additionally, our proprietary smart upscaling algorithms enhance the clarity of full-colour scans compared to traditional methods.

Do more in Less Time!

With Flash, users can save up to 2.5 days of scanning for projects that require five scanning days. This saved time enables users to consider taking additional scans they may not have taken with slower scanning systems. This ensures improved on-site productivity, even more predictable accuracy, all achieved with state-of-the-art colorized visual clarity at an affordable price.

Focus Premium and Core Features

70-350m Scan Range

Up to 350m scanning range, resulting in superior area coverage for each scan position.

Fast, Stable, Connectivity

Smartphone-enabled remote control capabilities are only restricted by the range of a Wi-Fi network. Improved wireless workflow includes a more stable and faster Wi-Fi operation. Scanner control can be performed on either the app or the actual Focus device.

On-site Registration

On-site registration, which involves combining multiple scans with common overlap, leads to quicker project completion and real-time identification of scan errors or missing data.

Convenient Data Management

Users have convenient access to project creation, scanner setting adjustments, image resolution management, colour or black and white scan options, scan grouping via clustering, and the ability to add annotations.

Rugged Construction

Rugged construction and housing can endure the demanding day-to-day work. Integrated high-speed SSD data storage ensures maximum scan capacity and lightning-fast scan processing.

Flash Technology

Flash Technology is enabled (for Focus Premium) for lightning-fast scans with unparalleled accuracy, showcasing vivid clarity, all at a budget-friendly price.

Hybrid Reality Capture

Hybrid Reality Capture scan mode is available as a subscription option through the FARO Stream App. It can be accessed seamlessly via Sphere, providing convenient connectivity with Stream and Sphere.

Fast Large-volume scanning
