DJI has formally announced some new long awaited products. Specifically the S1000 (octocopter) and a long range HD video downlink. Check it out:
DJI is announcing DJI Lightbridge, 2.4G Full HD Digital Video Downlink. DJI Lightbridge is an all new revolutionary2.4G Full HD digital video downlink. DJI Lightbridge offers extremely powerful equipment packed into a small and light-weight form factor. By offering 1920 x 1080p@30fps video data transmission from up to 1.7km (1.05miles) away, it's the ideal solution for the professional aerial photographer and FPV users. Set yourself free and remove the limits from low definition analog video transmitters.
Cost: $1599 (Taking preorders now. Expected ship date Mar. 1)
2.4G Full HD Digital Video Downlink
-1920x1080@60fps input and 1920x1080@30fps output
Extreme Long Distance Transmission
-Less than100mWground unit transmission in full compliance with CE and FCC certification -5dBi omni-directional antenna offers an enormous distance of up to1.7 km (1.05 miles) -Optional 14dBipatchantenna boosts transmission distance tremendously to 5km (3.1 miles)
Multiple Input And Output Connections
-DJI Zenmuse gimbal input (Digital Video/Power Supply/OSD Data)
-HDMI HD image output
-USB 2.0 image data output for iOS and Android phones and tablet synchronization
Built-in Remote Control Link
-Uplink remote control transmission and downlink video work simultaneously on2.4GHz.
-Remote control data travels to the uplink via the TX-Thru Port at the same time that video is streamed back down all without interference.
-Support for two remote controls: one for flight control (10 Channels) and the other for gimbal control(6 Channels). Control signals are received in the air and then transmitted to the flight controller through D-BUS.
-When used with a non-2.4G radio transmitter, video only transmission operation is supported. The DJI 5.8G radio transmitter is recommended.
Strong Anti-Jamming Technology
-Frequency Hopping Spread Spectrum (FHSS) + Direct Sequence Spread System (DSSS) technology is used for uplink transmission to enhance stability and offer anti-jamming capability.
-MIMO multi-antenna technology and OFDM modulation methods along with advanced algorithms are utilized for downlink transmission to enhance data bandwidth, improving dynamic performance and increasing stability even in harsh environments.
-Channel interference is constantly monitored during downlink transmission with automatic switching between 8 channels for the best possible signal.
-Up to 8 downlinks can be connected for parallel streaming and work independently without interference.
Low Latency Transmission
Maximum latency of up to 80ms
Built-in OSD(On-Screen Display)Function
-No additional equipment required for OSD functions when used with A2/WooKong-M/Naza-M V2 flight controllers. Flight parameters will be displayed onscreen.
-OSD functionality can be turned off via mobile software for HDMI and iOS/Android Output.
Must Work With DJI Multi-Rotor Flight Controllers
-DJI A2, WooKong-M and Naza-M V2 flight controllers -Phantom 2, with DJI 5.8G radio transmitter.
Multi-device Operation Mode, Stable And Reliable
-A single air unit can transmit to multiple ground units sending video to multiple screens. (Only one of the ground units can send a control signal while additional ground units will only be able to receive a video signal)
-Encryption ensures only authorized devices can receive data which can be programmed via mobile device software.
Built-in High Capacity Battery
-Ground unit has a built in high capacity 4000mA battery offering up to 4.5hours of use per charge.
-Rechargeable through the supplied charger or via a3S~6S Li-Po power battery. A full charge takes approximately1.5 hours.
-LED battery level indicator
-Also functions as a USB charger for mobile devices prolonging the life of peripheral equipment.
