Energize your location shots, breaking news, and sports footage

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. Use DigiBoom to add eye-popping shots and premium feel to your live and pre-recorded news, events, and sports. Push your content above the competition.

Get the Shots and Unique Camera Angles That Make Your Footage Stand Out

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). Use DigiBoom to create sweeping camera moves or place cameras into unusual point-of-views for maximum visual impact:

Get impossible shots– DigiBoom reaches any target, moves quickly, and gets angles and were previously unimaginable
Elevate your game - Extend the pole up to 8 feet to get shots of the tallest on the court, a crowded field and even places where tripods or handheld aren’t practical. Use the optional 3 foot extension accessory for even higher and truly epic views
Operate above the crowd – Get in front of, above, below, or around any obstacles with total control of camera angle and position
Perfect new moves – Create dynamic and premium cinema-style shots with smooth gimbal stabilization that will have people saying “How did they do that?“

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.
