Jigabot® today announced that its AIMe® robotic camera auto-framing
system won Videomaker's "Most Innovative Product Award" and was named to
the leading video production publication's Best of CES 2014 list.
AIMe was recognized
by Videomaker for its versatility and engineering excellence. In
addition to the Videomaker award, AIMe was named one
of the top five robots announced before CES by Fast Company, capping
a highly successful first-time appearance for Jigabot at the
"After eighteen months of working tirelessly to develop AIMe, it is very
rewarding and validating to be recognized by one of the most respected
publications in the video industry," said Donna Root, co-founder and
chief strategy offier of Jigabot. "That AIMe was able to stand out from
the thousands of products on display at CES illustrates that we have
built a truly innovative product. We were humbled by the overwhelming
response to AIMe at CES, and it is evident that it solves a real pain
point for families and extreme sport enthusiasts."
Compatible with many smartphones and cameras, the AIMe mount and
tracking system provides a hands-free way to keep a subject perfectly
framed while shooting video during recreation, extreme sports and
home-life activities. In addition, AIMe is suitable for a variety of
educational and medical applications, from recording lectures to filming
surgeries in operating rooms.
Jigabot's patent-pending AIMe technology features a robotic device that
syncs with a sensor called EmIT®. Users simply attach EmIT to any
subject (e.g., a skateboarder, snowboarder, a child playing sports or
performing at a recital) and mount AIMe with their smartphone or camera
(e.g., iPhones, GoPros, digital cameras under 12 ounces) to
automatically track the moving subject. Capable of tracking a subject
360 degrees horizontally and 240 degrees vertically, AIMe simultaneously
pans and tilts the camera in real time in response to the subject's
