GoPro has finally announced its new product lineup including the  flagship, HERO7 BLACK, which sets a new bar for video stabilization with its standout feature, HyperSmooth. “HERO7 BLACK is the GoPro we’ve all been waiting for,” said GoPro founder, Nick Woodman. We at Video & Audio Center, Authorized GoPro Dealer since the very beginning, couldn’t agree more—and our prices on the new GoPro HERO7 Series, and all GoPro models and accessories, are lower than Amazon or Best Buy, see store for details!

Nick was right on the money; HyperSmooth is the best in-camera video stabilization ever featured in a camera. It makes it easy to capture professional-looking, gimbal-like stabilized video without the expense or hassle of a motorized gimbal. And HyperSmooth works underwater and in high-shock and wind situations where gimbals fail. HERO7 BLACK with HyperSmooth video stabilization – you've got to see it to believe it!

With HERO7 BLACK, GoPro is also introducing a radical new form of video called TimeWarp. TimeWarp Video applies a high-speed, ‘magic-carpet-ride’ effect to your videos. Imagine a scenic drive, ocean dive or walk through the city compressed into a super-stabilized, sped-up version of itself, with the entire experience playing out in seconds. TimeWarp Video transforms longer experiences into short, flowing videos that are compelling to watch and easy to share.
And when it comes to sharing, there’s no faster way to do it than live. HERO7 BLACK is the first GoPro to live stream, enabling users to automatically share in real time to Facebook, Twitch, YouTube, Vimeo and other platforms internationally. The result is an exciting and convenient way to share life’s more interesting, on-the-go moments. “With HyperSmooth video stabilization, HERO7 BLACK is a camera anyone can use to capture amazingly smooth, professional looking shots of their favorite activities. And they can do it live.”

Video & Audio Center aren’t the only ones who think this new version of the revolutionary action camera is a winner; at the recent Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) International Conference on Image Processing (ICIP) Visual Innovation Awards GoPro was honored with a 2018 IEEE ICIP Visual Innovation Award for its achievement in producing products with lasting impacts on the visual image processing space. From the first GoPro film camera in 2004, to the introduction of HD in 2009 and game-changing HyperSmooth in 2018, we are proud to see the evolution of GoPro, and those folks behind the technological advancements, being recognized.
