DJI at CES 2017

DJI, the world leader in unmanned aerial technology, has introduced two new Osmo product extensions, a new aerial mapping app and a limited edition Phantom 4 drone at CES Unveiled in Las Vegas. The company also showcased two variations of its CrystalSky prototype, an ultra-bright monitor developed specifically for outdoor aerial imaging operators, along with its latest aerial platforms including the Phantom 4 Pro, Inspire 2 and Mavic Pro.


According to a press release, the DJI Osmo Mobile turns a smartphone into a smart motion camera, giving creators the tool to effortlessly create cinematic videos. The new DJI Osmo Mobile Silver was created with lifestyle in mind and shares the same high-quality built and ergonomic design found in the rest of the DJI Osmo family. Using the DJI GO app, users can track their subject automatically, create motion timelapses, dramatic long exposures, 9-shot panoramas, and livestream their story to social media.

Further enhancements have been added to the DJI Osmo Mobile Silver to make every moment you shoot look smooth, professional and ready to share. A new Beautify mode uses automatic identification and intelligent processing technologies inside the DJI GO app, allowing users to do minor touch ups and give their videos that perfect, professional sheen. The DJI Osmo Mobile Silver will also work with FiLMiC Pro, a professional filmmaking mobile app that gives creators more flexibility and creative freedom with their handheld device.

With the goal to make products scalable and to provide a way for existing DJI Osmo customers to capture cinematic videos with their smartphones, the DJI Zenmuse M1 gimbal will be made available as an add-on accessory. Similar to the DJI Zenmuse X5 and X5R gimbals, the Zenmuse M1 allows owners of the original Osmo stabilizer to mount a smartphone and take full advantage of their existing DJI Osmo handle.

Energy efficiency and high-capacity batteries give the DJI Osmo Mobile Silver a maximum run time of 4.5 hours. The DJI Osmo Mobile Silver is compatible with a range of smartphones, from 2.3 inches to 3.3 inches (58.6 mm - 84.8 mm) in width. The price of the DJI Osmo Mobile Silver is £319/339 EUR and the DJI Zenmuse M1 gimbal is £179/189 EUR (without the Osmo handle). Both products will start shipping in the second half of January.

JI Ground Station Pro (or GS Pro) is an iPad app designed for professional operators to plan and control autonomous flights for DJI aircraft. Through the app’s concise, easy to use interface, complex flight missions can be planned with just a few taps. DJI GS Pro was designed to improve workflow and dramatically increase efficiency in a wide range of industries, especially those in aerial mapping, architecture, precision agriculture and electrical inspections.

The 3D Map Area function allows the aircraft to generate efficient flight paths after the operator has set their required flight zone and camera parameters. The aircraft will then follow this route throughout its mission. The image data captured during these flights can be input into 3D reconstruction software to generate 3D maps, while the mission itself can be saved for re-use.

The Tap and Go Waypoint feature allows for up to 99 waypoints per mission and each waypoint can have up to 15 consecutive actions, including aircraft rotation, gimbal pitch, start/stop recording, photo capture, and hover. A Virtual Fence increases safety and ease of use by locking the aircraft’s height and speed within a designated area. As the aircraft approaches the virtual fence, it will brake and hover to ensure it stays within the flight area.

Compatible with most DJI aerial platforms and Zenmuse cameras, the DJI GS Pro will serve as a powerful and convenient tool for many industries and give critical missions added accuracy and reliability. The DJI GS Pro iPad app is free and available for download at the App Store.
