Ambrella assists weight reduction in mining drones

first_imgAmbarella is as semiconductor and image processing company and develops low-power high-definition video products. Ambarella made waves at the 2017 Consumer Electronics Show when it announced the H22 chip for cameras in drones.It films 4K HD video that comes equipped with electronic image stabilization, cutting out the need for the gimbals that are often found on drones. Gimbals allow cameras to pivot without causing the camera to shake, but they are heavy, which means shorter flight times.But Ambarella’s H22 chip could take drone use to the next level by eliminating unnecessary weight. The exciting thing about what Ambarella is offering is that most drone manufacturers are still using gimbals, which means the market for Ambarella is massive.Meanwhile, Ambarella also unveiled its H3 chip earlier this year, which is used in 8K Ultra HD video for higher-end drones, according to MarketWatch. 8K offers 16 times the resolution of HD. Ambarella is the market leader for the cameras used in commercial drone technology, giving it huge upside potential as the mining industry continuously shifts in that direction.last_img
