At the Qualcomm 4G/5G Summit, Qualcomm Technologies, Inc., a subsidiary of Qualcomm Incorporated (NASDAQ: QCOM), today announced that two cameras in GoPro’s just-released HERO7 lineup use Qualcomm Technologies’ solutions. The GoPro HERO7 Silver and HERO7 White use the Qualcomm® Vision Intelligence 200 and Vision Intelligence 100 Platforms, respectively. Both platforms are based on the Qualcomm® APQ8053 system-on-chip (SoC), which features a heterogeneous compute architecture designed to deliver high compute capability and outstanding power efficiency. The SoC also features integrated location and connectivity which allows for seamless sharing of content wirelessly.
Engineers from Qualcomm Technologies and GoPro worked extensively optimizing the use of the Qualcomm Vision Intelligence Platform to meet the demanding performance GoPro users expect from their devices. What results is stabilized 4K30 video, 10MP wide dynamic range photos, 14-language Voice Control, portrait orientation capture, 2x slo-mo video, and automatic photo and video transfer to the GoPro App for fast and easy sharing – all with GoPro’s signature rugged and waterproof design.
