LAKE MARY, Fla., Nov. 11, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --FARO Technologies, Inc.
(NASDAQ: FARO), the world's most trusted source for 3D measurement, imaging
and realization technology, has released its most advanced scan processing
software solution, SCENE 5.2.

In SCENE 5.2, 3D visualizations are rendered in even greater detail with the
new Super Sampling function. Apart from better sharpness, the software also
improves 3D views by reducing color differences due to inhomogeneous light
conditions at different scanning positions. The Color Balancing tool
seamlessly smoothens the transition between individual scans with overlapping
areas.

Additionally, the SCENE 5.2 is equipped to process data more efficiently than
ever before. The new software comes with a homogenization tool that eliminates
coordinate points with a distance of less than 1.5 mm from each other. This
smart function reduces the volume of data by an average of 20%, with no
noticeable compromise to the visualization. Users can enjoy considerably
faster exports of scan data from 3D view, and imports into third party
software.

Other new functions exclusive to the SCENE 5.2 include Multi Clipping Boxes
and Multi Orthophoto, which provide users with more options to manipulate scan
data. The software's ability to recognize natural registration marks and to
perform fine registration has both been optimized to boost performance in this
new version.

Furthermore, with the new WebShare service from FARO, users can save 3D
documentation data in the cloud and share scanned projects with project
partners around the world, without having to worry about a dedicated server,
limited data storage, or number of authorized users. Besides the highest
security, SCENE WebShare Cloud also offers an interface optimized for mobile
devices.

Mr. Oliver Burkler, Senior Product Manager expressed, "The FARO SCENE 5.2 is a
powerful software that will give users the perfect scanner results. Its new
features will definitely enhance the productivity and scan quality of
individuals that require 3D documentation in their work, whether in land
survey, heritage preservation, creation of virtual reality, or others."

SCENE 5.2 fully complements the FARO® Laser Scanner Focus3D X 330, and the
software's new features capitalizes on the device's extended range of
measurement.
