The result’s a full HD view, with greater than twice the quantity of pixels of a typical 2K show. DJI says that “wearing the DJI Goggles is like looking at a 216″ home cinema screen placed about three meters away.” Specific.
On high of seamless picture transmission, DJI’s OcuSync permits up to two pairs of goggles to be linked to pilots flying a Mavic Pro. The Mavic presents a direct feed at both 720p at 60 fps or shut vary 1080p at 30 fps. Latency is as little as 110ms.
DJI Goggles allow you to do extra
