DJI Launches Sub-Pixel Stabilization For GoPro

The Zenmuse HERO is the world's first integrated gyro-stabilized gimbal for GoPro

Austin, TX April 08, 2013

DJI, one of the world's leading developers and manufacturers in UAV systems, today launched the revolutionary Zenmuse HERO, a gyro-stabilized gimbal built specifically for the GoPro HERO3. Optimized for installation on the popular PHANTOM consumer quadcopter, the Zenmuse HERO combines the versatility of the award wining GoPro with industry leading stability for truly cinematic aerials not previously possible within a consumer package.

The Zenmuse HERO was designed for consumers seeking a cost-effective means of producing high quality aerial cinematography, without the issues plaguing consumer systems. With the Zenmuse HERO's advanced algorithms and instant-response direct drive motors the GoPro remains perfectly level and steady during nearly all flight conditions. This combination allows consumers to produce high quality HD video that rivals productions from systems costing nearly ten times more.

Features of Zenmuse HERO

*First fully integrated gimbal for GoPro

*Built in GoPro control module for power, video output and start/stop capability

*Independent IMU for professional level stability during flight

*Accurate to +/- 0.08 degrees

*2 axis (pitch and roll)

*Integrated iOS app for camera control

Features of DJI iOS App

*Low latency video monitoring (downlink)

*Full remote camera control

*Wireless synchronization

*Social Media sharing

*First person viewing (FPV) functionality

"When the Zenmuse HERO is combined with DJI's PHANTOM quadcopter, anyone can create cinematic aerial content at a fraction of the cost of existing systems," stated Colin Guinn, CEO of DJI North America.

The Zenmuse HERO will be available for purchase at the end of Q2 2013 - incredibly compelling pricing to be released soon.
