Stereoscopic Imaging System


Matrix Wand

The Matrix Wand uses a camera in each end to provide three-dimensional measurements that can be used to save time and prevent unnecessary work during collision repair.

The measurements can be archived and retrieved for later use and Matrix is working to build a national database containing measurements for every make and model of car.
