Roundshot Metric 

Create 180x360° HDR spherical panoramic images for use in forensic applications

The Roundshot Metric is a fully automated 180x360º panorama system

An ideal tool to document an accident, crime scene, or any other location quickly and reliably through a completely automated process.


Just press the start button and in less than 5 minutes you have a stitched, complete and finished high resolution 180x360 degree, 194 million pixel HDR sphere. 

Sharp, clear, rich HDR spheres at outstanding speed

  • Fully automatic image capture and HDR panorama rendering

  • Professional DSLR camera calibrated with VR Drive for perfect alignment and precision

  • High resolution 32-bit HDR output file in under 5 minutes!

  • High resolution HDR spherical output for forensic applications, virtual tours, or computer generated imaging (CGI)

  • Highly productive, fully automated system without any need for post-production.

  • Wireless Remote Control -  The VR Drive transmits its screen content to any mobile device or computer equipped with Wi-Fi. This is ideal to control VR Drive remotely, can also be used to create new programs or to edit the settings of a program.

  • Compact, lightweight, reliable and affordable!


Out of the case, on the tripod, go! The VR holder has been conceived specifically for one camera. Centering the camera and nodal point adjustments are history.

Full frame DSLR camera with wide-angle lens allowing rich detail

The Roundshot Metric uses a Nikon D750 – a full-frame DSLR camera equipped with a 20mm lens. This 24 megapixel camera provides high sensitivity and best image quality even under difficult lighting conditions.

Fully automated image capture

Select the program (with or without HDR) and press start. Leave the rest to the machine. The Roundshot Metric programs can be customized and are locked to ensure that operating the device is easy and completely worry-free.

Built to last

True to its reputation, the Roundshot Metric is built with finest materials – made in Switzerland. All parts are machined from aluminum and withstand tough climatic challenges.

Compact + lightweight with many hours of battery life

The Roundshot Metric is built for those 3D professionals who are constantly on the move. With its limited weight and compact dimensions it fits into a small case (41 x 33 x 23 cm / 16 x 13 x 9 inches) and can be taken virtually anywhere. The camera and Metric batteries are connected to each other, enabling enhanced battery life and simple charging.

With its wireless remote control the Roundshot device transmits its screen content to any mobile device or computer equipped with wifi. This is ideal to control program sequences remotely, but can also be used to create new programs or to edit the settings of a program.

On a smart phone, a tablet, on a laptop or even on a large computer screen: controlling the Roundshot device via wifi is a very practical feature. Especially when having the Roundshot Metric installed on top of a mast or some other inaccessible location, the wifi remote control allows projects which would otherwise not be possible.

Assign a fixed IP to the Roundshot Metric and the connecting device and connect to the wireless router which is built into the hardware. Alternatively, it is also possible to use an ethernet cable to create the access between Roundshot Metric and computer device.

one device - countless applications! Discover the various Roundshot Metric applications from spherical photography to forensics!

Documenting a crime scene in high resolution has never been easier! The VR Drive Metric solution allows a complete documentation in 180x360º imagery. Thanks to system calibration the resulting spheres are a very accurate representation of the real scene.



Creating hundreds of spherical VR panoramas in a short time?  Results are repeatable and dependable. The VR Drive Metric provides the productivity so that the VR photographer can work with - and not against - sharp deadlines.



The VR Drive Metric is the first VR robot providing a 194 million pixel HDR sphere. Depending on the light situation and target dynamic range, bracketing 3 or 5 images can be selected. The VR Drive Metric automatically measures the light and shifts the exposures accordingly. Due to their high resolution, the 32-bit HDR files provide rich data expanding the limits for CGI professionals.


The Roundshot Metric workflow: 360° spheres in no time!

Built for ultimate speed and precision, the Roundshot Metric device captures a scene through high resolution spherical panoramas. These spheres are stitched in PTGUI or AutoPano Giga stitching software. 

Roundshot Metric

This panorama device equipped with a professional Nikon D750 camera and 20mm lens creates 15 images distributed in a sphere. It operates fully automatically and reliably.

Processing times

Image capture outdoors (daylight):

  • normal mode (30 images): 70 seconds

  • HDR mode (for example 3x10 images): 2 minutes

Image stitching software

These 15 images (or multiples of 15 for HDR) are then processed in PTGUI or AutoPano Giga to create 180x360° spherical images with a resolution of 231 million pixels (10,752 x 21,504).

Processing times in PTGUI

  • normal mode: 3 minutes

  • 32-bit HDR panorama (bracketing of 3 images): 4 - 5 minutes

Spherical Viewing

Create high resolution spheres in no time using PTGUI or AutoPano Giga stitching software. 


Roundshot designed the Metric software to allow maximum simplicity.

Roundshot Metric capture software is designed for simplicity:

  • simplified user interface with program selection and start/stop/pause/resume button

  • possibility to add many customized, password-protected programs (enabling various bracketing options or exposure variation strategies)

  • fully automated exposure control through Metric device with external light meter


Controlling the Roundshot Metric is very simple through its ergonomic touch screen or with remote control - with a smart phone or computer device connected via wifi.
