"My clinic conducted a test of Medit's i500 intraoral scanner today where we scanned a Medit employee. It showed quite a good performance for its first trial. The way scanned images are put together was similar to 3Shape TRIOS but the handling felt more like CEREC Omnicam.

The scan depth was 14mm and the scan tip had to be close enough to the teeth. It stitches the images of a relatively small area and the size of a captured image is very similar to that of Omnicam.

During the scan, the program didn't stop. It was impressive to maintain the same performance even when the number of scan images reached 1,000 up to 2,000.

You can use the scanner with a dedicated program Medit Link that is fully linked to exocad, and send scan files to your colleagues in-house or to associated labs. At this point, you can use a Medit Link cloud server, so scan files can be sent anywhere on the Internet as Medit Link uses the Amazon Server.

When a lab receives files through Medit Link and opens them in exocad, the order information is automatically sent to exocad. So I think it will be a very good solution for clinics who have an in-house lab.

One should be careful not to make any conclusions just yet, but the tentative price and its future potential are likely to bring about a very good response in the market.

The official version is set to be released in May, pending further upgrades, so if you’re interested in this product, I guess it is worth waiting one more month."

It would be a slow death . That took forever.

Amazon server? not sure about that. It did a nice job on gold but not a game changer.
Not sure if the IO scanner will be a game changer, I guess time will tell but the Amazon servers are nice...I believe they have the best up time in the world. Then again, that might go down too...Trump has honed-in on them.

If the price point is low then it will appeal to the in house drs.
Invisalign still controls the aligner market with the Itero which is why you see many Trios b&ws for sale 2 17-18K.
It would have to come in around 10-15 k for most cheapos to take notice I would think.

Maybe I'll get one.:D

I'd like to see how the tips are constructed as well.
That's the one issue I have with Trios is the mylar(?) mirror which can water stain in the autoclave.
A removable/replaceable glass mirror would be better imo.

This one looks very similar to the Trios 3,hard to tell from the video.

I still think there is a better design waiting out there. I'd like to see a bendable wand that could be adjusted to the individual patient.
The tongue can make scanning difficult at times.

I can't spill the beans yet, but the preliminary info I have indicates the price will be very attractive...
