Top of the line doesn't come easy
It is our negligence not to upload a video for our top of the line DS3 professional 3-axis digital gimbal stabilizer.
Features of DS3
- Gimbal system is made of aerial grade #7075 Aluminum Alloy.
- Handle frame is made of top grade carbon fiber.
- Built-in 7 inch HD monitor stream live video image from camera.
- Follow-me function with continuous all axis stabilization.
- Come with 2.4g wireless transmission remote control, up to 1km line of sight range coverage. Built-in 7 inch HD monitor for live streaming video image from gimbal.
- Tested with 120km/h wind resistance.
- Same core awarding winning technology.
- Automatic calibration, no tedious software input is request, and maximizing unit up time.
Why we come to Kickstarter?
Our unique collections of digital gimbal stabilizer open a brand new niche market in Consumer Electronics. We need your acknowledgment, affirmation and recognition in order to move ahead.
Core technologies that make us stand out from the crowd
We made our own patent pending proprietary artificial intelligence software. Frankly speaking, everybody else is buying a licensed software from Russian, Alexmos. Our software predict the body movement using various parameters, and proactively corrects it IN ADVANCE up to 20,000 times per second. Alexmos's software is basically a PID system, in which the sensors have to detect the imbalance first, then send the signal to MCU, which drives the motors to different directions to counteract the movement. There is always a lag, and it is definitely not smooth enough. In addition, our software is encrypted in a chipset, and no computer calibration is needed.
We have introduced our product lines in the following roadshow events :_
- IFA Berlin 2013,
- CEATEC Japan 2013,
- Photoplus New York 2013,
- InterBEE Japan 2013,
- CES International Las Vegas 2014, &
- the NAB Show 2014 Las Vegas.
Throughout the roadshow, the response to our products has been outstanding including an innovation award from CEATEC and excellent reviews from Ubergizmo, Techpodcasts and German media TV news channel N24.
With the high publicity in the Kickstarter platform, we can effectively take pre-orders as well as creating greater product visibility.
A little background on GAZER ...
GAZER (now trademarked in the US, EU, China and Hong Kong) was previously marketed under the brand MASTOR by Mastor Technology Ltd.
In mid 2013 a new company, Mastor Technology Development Co., Ltd (whose principal officers are listed below) was created to re-brand, market and develop the GAZER product range for commercial purposes.
In early 2013, Jian Feng, a National Geographic photographer of some renown and inventor of the MASTOR brand pursued a new opportunity to mass produce his range of stable platform gimbal systems.
He met with Stephen Tsang and together they formed Mastor Technology Development Co., Ltd.
With Stephen's business expertise and Jian's knowledge of robotic engineering, they have created simple devices that empower ordinary people to produce extraordinary videography.
Development of our products ...
Development started in early 2013 on a variety of handheld gimbal systems and aerial drones. Jian's vision and our newly formed companies expertise quickly produced 7 Gazer prototypes.
By August 2013 Jian's conceptual sketches became technical drawings which then made their way to the toolmakers bench where moldings of our products were created.
Charger Standard for SP1/GP1/MD1 (Options, FREEBIE for ALL Backers)
- as a desktop charger for spare battery.
- can be installed at the bottom of SP1 / GP1 / MD1 handle, acting as a free-standing base, which allow the mentioned device to stand freely on a flat surface.
- as a connecting device for tripod stand.
Our SP1 prototype being used at the the races.
The rest of our Product Range is illustrated below. 2013 to 2014 has seen quite a transition from our original prototypes to our completed production models.
Integrating our propriety electro mechanical & electronic components as well as our propriety software completed the process. In the space of 7 short months Mastor Technology Development Co., Ltd. created 7 unique products that are ready to go into production.
So what's in it for you?
Throughout 2013 we worked hard building our prototypes, creating exposure and lining up future distributors. We know that our patent pending technologies define a new era in gimbal history, however, we have one last financial hurdle to cross before we can realize this.This is where you come in as backers!
We hope to go into production March 2014 and start shipping our products to a network of worldwide distributors by June 2014.
Early Backers/Supporters will have the opportunity to get our products before they hit the world's retail shelves at a price lower than our final recommended retail price.
What sets us apart from the rest ...
Our company has developed Core Technologies of which patents are pending. These technologies include:
Proprietary AC Brushless Motors with Sensors: Aerospace technology is applied in our patent pending AC brushless motor design. Our motor is capable of counteracting your movement 20,000 times per second. All in all, our motor is silent, smooth, fast and with high torque.
Adjustable Motor Torque Control for adapting various Camera Types and Weights: GazerTM is the first to introduce this niche technology in a brushless motor. Not only the speed of motor is variable, but the torque as well.
Proprietary FUZZY AI Algorithm: Our close to perfect artificial intelligent algorithm uses a set of parameters to predict your movement at the very beginning & proactively counteract your movement to maintain utmost stability for your camera.
Proprietary IMU: In order to achieve 20,000 times per second in brushless motor speed, a tailor-made 32 bit IMU is used.
Comparatively speaking, GAZER is far ahead of the competition. We just need to get onto the playing field in order to be in the game. With your support, you'll be the first to obtain and use our ground breaking technology.

Risks and challenges
There are basically no real risks to completing our project apart from assembly line issues.
Our gimbal system technologies have their patents pending and our limited quantity prototypes have been produced. The quality control process that our products go through is thorough and we expect a minimal fail rate in production.
If we reach our funding goals, we'll start manufacturing in March 2014 and shipping of our products to a growing list of worldwide distributors by June 2014.
These businesses have seen and experienced the quality of our brand at various roadshow events across the world and have signed contracts with us to become exclusive distributors in their locations when our production runs are complete.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
