GoPro has been named a CES® 2019 Innovation Awards Honoree for its HERO7 Black camera.
The annual CES program celebrates outstanding design, with an independent panel of judges evaluating new products on their consumer appeal, functionality, engineering and how well the products compare with the competition. HERO7 Black was chosen as a standout in the digital imaging category.
Launched in September, HERO7 Black debuted with a suite of new features that caught the attention of the CES 2019 Innovation Award judges, including HyperSmooth – gimbal-like stabilization built right into the camera that makes shaky video a thing of the past. YouTube reviewers, top tech media outlets and consumers alike are experiencing the mind-blowing impact of the best in-camera video stabilization in the industry and capturing content that looks impossibly smooth upon playback.
The gadget has also introduced TimeWarp, a radical new form of video which transforms longer experiences into short, flowing clips that are easy to watch and fun to share. It is also is the first from the company’s portfolio to be able to live stream, enabling users to automatically share in real time to Facebook, Twitch, YouTube, Vimeo and other platforms internationally.
Additional new features like SuperPhoto and dramatically improved audio were also factors in the camera’s win, while its core DNA of waterproof and rugged design, voice control, intuitive touch screen and seamless transfer of content to your mobile device made HERO7 Black a standout in the category.
