Redrock Micro’s DigiBoom was announced day one of NAB 2018, winning two awards for its design by the end of the show. We naturally wanted to know more about the device that resulted from Redrock’s technology partnership with Disney research and development, so we spoke with Redrock’s Brian Valente for more on this game changing invention.
Key Product Features Include:
DigiBoom is a new gimbal-stabilized camera rig that merges the best of Steadicam, jib, drone, and handheld with the portability of an ENG camera. DigiBoom powers your cameras to go from ground level to over 8’ and everywhere in between while the integrated gimbal keeps shots smooth and steady (up to 12’ with the optional extension). You can use DigiBoom to create sweeping camera moves or place cameras into unusual point-of-views for maximum visual impact:
Designed for Fast-Moving Productions and Small Crews
DigiBoom doesn’t require additional crew or specialized skills, and can be learned in a few hours of practice. Familiar camera controls and functions are similar to traditional ENG cameras, and gimbal controls are intuitive and responsive. Solo camera operators are more productive and creative, now with options for unique dynamic footage. The highly mobile rig means shots and angles can be easily improvised for fast-moving news or on-the-spot creative choices.
DigiBoom works with Your Current Workflow
DigiBoom easily integrates with existing broadcast workflow, whether plugging in live to the production truck or recording b-roll. All the codecs, resolutions, and connectivity is there so DigiBoom is up and running on day one.
The Redrock Micro DigiBoom is available for pre-order with a $500 deposit, and is projected for a summer 2018 release for under $4,000.
