GSS – Cinema Pro Gyro Stabilized Platform

System Features

GSS Systems are the smallest and lightest system in the world to integrate all of the most popular Digital cinema and Broadcast cameras. Cameras and lenses can be swapped out in less than 30 minutes, quicker than any other gyro-stabilized system on the market. GSS systems do not have ITAR restrictions, and Vector Steering allows for look-down capability with no gimbal lock. No auxiliary junction unit is required and with in-flight calibration, GSS systems have an unbeatable horizon reference.

Perfect for use in almost any scenario, the Cinema Pro (formerly the C516) is the best stabilized platform option to integrate the most popular payloads. With six-axis of movement in a mid-sized platform, this gimbal can easily handle medium-sized cinema cameras with impressive lenses! As with all GSS gimbals, the Cinema Pro is well-suited for a variety of applications including aerial, ground vehicle, marine mounted and more.
