US: Leica Geosystems has been honored with a CES 2017 Innovation Awards for the Leica BLK360 Imaging Laser Scanner in the Digital Imaging category. Products entered in were judged by a preeminent panel of independent industrial designers, independent engineers and members of the trade media.
The Leica BLK360 is the world’s smallest imaging laser scanner. It shoots 360-degree high dynamic range (HDR) spherical imagery and combines it with a millimeter accuracy 3D laser point-cloud. Designed to simplify the reality capture process, the BLK360 has only one button and produces full digital reality data in under three minutes.
BLK360 was created in tandem with a new version of the Autodesk ReCap 360 software that runs on the Apple iPad Pro, allowing users to easily create, share and manipulate accurate 3-D models of real world conditions. A reservation promo for the Leica BLK360 is available now. The hardware will ship in March 2017.
“We’re honored that the Consumer Technology Association (CTA)TM recognizes our commitment to engineering and design of the BLK360,” said Burkhard Boeckem, CTO, Leica Geosystems. “Our intent was to fill a significant gap in the industry with a lightweight and compact imaging laser scanner. We feel that the response from the scanning community and this honorable mention are indicators that we have achieved our goal. We look forward to showing the BLK360 at CES 2017.”
Leica Geosystems’ BLK360 will be displayed at CES 2017 at the Pepcom event being held on January 4 from 7-10:30 p.m., as well as during the show in the Leica CES exhibit at Westgate Suite #305.
