What if you could take a three dimensional pic from your smartphone? Or shoot a 360° video with a few friends? Or maybe scan an object using your tablet and send it to a 3D printer? This future is coming and it’s brought to you by Mantis Vision. Our revolutionary technology puts powerful 3D scanners on mobile devices as well as handheld scanners. Are you ready to augment your reality?


Combining strengths of structured light with cutting edge algorithms

Proprietary coded structured-light technology, enable highest level of details and proven top performance. Combined with cutting edge 3D content creation software, we enable user content creation and instant Virtual and Augmented Reality experience. Mantis Vision’s technology is robust, scalable and with a minimal ~4mm thickness, making it the smart choice for any form factor, including; mobile, smart connected devices, multi-camera volumetric solutions and professional hand-held scanners.

Mantis Vision software optimizes the core sensing technology, by offering a full 3D processing pipeline (utilizing professional 3D scanner technology).. Our solution addresses depth sensing and processing needs such as auto calibration, high-quality registration, segmentation, VR/MR shading, and even data compression and streaming. The result- any user can capture a static or dynamic object, person or scene of choice, in different ambient light conditions and instantly edit, share and stream the real volumetric content to any 2D/3D/MR/VR platform.


Mantis Vision’ proprietary coded pattern, yields at least 4 times more critical features density, relative to competitors’, resulting in high resolution of 120K points when using 1M sensor, or 40K points when using a VGA Sensor.


Triangulation is the process of determining the location of a point by measuring angle to it from known points at either end of a fixed baseline, rather than measuring distances to the point directly.


Active triangulation means that instead of using two cameras and the light on the scenery, we use active infrared source to illuminate the scenery and only single camera to create the real-time depth mapping. 


Structured light is used to create a single projected pattern. Since the pattern is being projected and captured by the camera at high framerate we can create 3D movies (4D). 

The point can then be fixed as the third point of a triangle with one known side and two known angles.

One camera replaced with active source (infrared strobe light)

Mantis-vision pattern utilizes a unique code (Patented-US8208719) allows a smaller footprint to uniquely identify many more points than in standard methods (i.e.: any desired point-resolution could be provided by using a more robust coded-pattern due to a “smaller footprint”)

This unique technology provide a higher resolution & accuracy for lower MOS (minimal object size)

Echo Software

Mantis Vision Advanced Echo™ software package is a collection of scan and editing tools for 3D models. 3D decoding and registration is performed online, using a patented algorithm, to guarantee accurate scan results in 3D point-cloud format. The editing tools allow post-scan actions like: noise removal, editing, registration corrections, meshing, file format conversion and export.

Various Applications for 3D Scanning Technologies

Technical room scanning

Rapid and accurate 3D capture in complex spaces

F6 SMART’s wide field of view coupled with a long working distance makes it an ideal solution for scanning complex areas and technical rooms, such as electric sub-stations, pipe rooms and industrial rooms. In a matter of minutes, the F6 SMART delivers the high levels of scanning accuracy required to build a complete 3D model to scale, providing engineers with a reliable basis for internal measurements, verification of configurations and location of equipment. As a handheld scanner, the F6 SMART can access hard-to-reach areas and complete a high-quality scan in minutes.
