DJI is so famous that people assume it must be DJI when someone mentions professional drone systems. They are the leading innovators in the world of civilian drones and creative camera technologies. Just recently, they announced their latest innovation: the O3 Air Unit.
The O3 Air Unit comprises a compact FPV camera, and you also get a transmission module system. Both of these devices combine to deliver excellent performance for users and enable them to reach and explore greater heights.
The camera comes with a new 1/1.7-inch sensor. So it can record 4K/60fps video. Furthermore, the camera sensor’s field of view(FOV) is super wide at 155°. Then the air unit can also deliver a 1080p/100fps live feed for a maximum 10KM range, and the latency is just around 30ms, which is super low in the grand scheme of things. So for all the professionals who want the ultimate high-performance FPV experience, this is the one you should keep your eyes on.
High-Quality Video Transmission with Low Latency
Transmission is the core of any FPV system, and the new O3 Air Unit features DJI’s premier O3+ system. So that means you get 2T2R omnidirectional antennas in the unit. These antennas can deliver a stream of 1080p/100fps. The range of transmission is around 10KMs, which is pretty sweet. It can do all of it with a low latency of around 30ms.
Users can get professional grade H.265 Video Transmission with a max bitrate of 50 Mbps. The transmission mechanism is perfectly optimized to save power and choose the best frequency in crowded environments.
Superior Image Quality
Image quality is another pretty important thing for any FPV experience, and this new O3 Air Unit from DJI features a new 1/1.7-inch sensor. It is a powerful sensor and can shoot 4K@60fps, which is quite incredible. Then the flight experience is further enhanced by the super wide FOV of the camera, as it can shoot 155°.
You can shoot the videos in D-Cinelike color mode. This allows for better color grading and editing in the production after you shoot the video. To support shooting in all lighting conditions, DJI has made the camera compatible with the DJI Avata ND filter.
Great Customization Options and Compatibility
When it comes to FPV, every user has their own preferences, and DJI made sure that the O3 Air Unit can support them all. There is a Canvas mode that allows on-screen display customization. Then the air unit is compatible with many control devices, including DJI Goggles 2, DJI FPV Goggles V2, and DJI FPV Remote Controller 2. So users can fly the unit at their convenience.
Use it With DJI Goggles 2
At the time of launch, the DJI Googles were available with the DJI Avata Pro-View Combo, but now users can buy them as a unit. These goggles are also compatible with the new O3 Air Unit, and users can take advantage of the 1080p HD Micro-OLED display of the goggles to experience an HD FPV broadcast.
Other Key Features of O3 Air Unit
