We’re not the only ones raving about the Scan2K, Geoweek News shares: 

Each of these scanning modes offers a different associated scan rate: a short-range mode (up to 250m) with 500 KHz points per second; a medium-range mode (up to 750m) with 200 KHz points per second; and a long-range mode (up to 2000m) with 50 KHz points per second. In addition to the variable range modes, the Scan2K also records four returns per pulse, which enables conducting “bare earth” filtering to help remove vegetation from scans among other things, such as dust penetration and such. 
Another unique aspect of Scan2K is the ability to have a variable vertical field of view. The scanner’s maximum vertical field of view is 120° and the system will pulse at the range mode selected over that vertical field of view. When the Vertical Field of View is narrowed, the scanner will in turn pulse over that narrowed vertical field of view and thus collect more data in that smaller area. It is not masked like in other scanners that don’t have this capability.” - Eric van Rees from Geo Week News
