Taro's camera stabilizer uses infrared for better tracking
If you want to capture any kind of sports on camera, it's incredibly valuable to have a camera stabilizer that can track the subject's movements for you. That's why many sports videographers have sung the praises of the DJI Osmo gimbal stabilizer, which can do just that -- you tap the person in a companion app, and the Osmo will follow the subject around for you. Except, it doesn't work all of the time. If the person moves too fast or if there's an obstruction, the Osmo will often just lose track. The Taro, however, aims to solve that with a series of new stabilizers that combines both infrared technology and artificial intelligence.

Taro Launches World's Most Advanced AI Camera Stabilizer and Tracking Device
LAS VEGAS, Jan. 8, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Taro, the manufacturer of hands-free tracking stabilizers for smartphones and DSLR cameras that combines infrared technology and Artificial Intelligence (AI) to follow moving targets, today launched three revolutionary products at CES 2018. The Taro T1 for smartphones, the Taro TX for DSLRs and the Taro M1 infrared tracking module, all of which are now available for pre-order pricing at nearly half the price of competing systems. To view the demo models, visit Taro in the Sands Expo Level 1, Hall G, Eureka Park at booth #52473.
The secret to Taro's tracking lies in the combination of a flickering sequential infrared tag and tracking module that contains an infrared camera, which works in tandem to rapidly identify which part of the frame is integral to a dynamic action sequence.
The Taro T1 is a DSLR and phone stabilizer thats powered by AI
When you think of smartphone stabilizers, your mind most likely jumps to DJI’s Osmo or a Steadicam-like device, but there is a new entry at the 2018 CES. Taro a company who has previously made stabilizers has the new T1. Which is a stabilizer for DSLR’s and smartphones alike that is power by Artificial Intelligence or AI, along with some infrared technology on board.
What makes the Taro T1 unique would be the stabilizer itself and the optional infrared tracking module. As it uses a sequential infrared tag and an infrared camera that tracks the environment or movements and then adjusts accordingly. The Taro can follow objects at up to 50 miles per hour, which is pretty impressive for a product like this and allows it to be used in a plethora of scenarios. And artificial intelligence is working behind the scenes to identify movement and then to adjust the shot.

essentially designed a robot that operates your camera just like a real cameraman could,” said Taro founder, Hao Qian. Qian says the secret to Taro’s tracking lies in the combination of a flickering sequential infrared tag and tracking
module that contains an infrared camera, which work in tandem to rapidly identify which part of the frame is integral to a dynamic action sequence.
stabilizer means you don't have to bug your friends to take videos of you anymore
"Sport mode" is a camera feature that's been around forever, but it still seems like companies can't get the hang of tracking that doesn't involve an obnoxious amount of blurriness. Though we could all ride Segways to film fast-moving objects, shouldn't
there be a more efficient way to capture movement? Enter Taro: a camera stabilizer and auto-tracker that wants to act as your own personal cameraman. SEE ALSO: This DSLR camera has 'food mode' and it's $300 off at Target today Recently
launched on Kickstarter, Taro brings a whole new meaning to "sport mode." Now you can capture or film yourself playing sports, dancing, skateboarding, etc. — anything you've always wanted to film but could never quite figure out how.
Just stand in front of Taro for a second and the tracking module (composed of an infrared camera) and a flickering sequential infrared tag will pick up your body's movements and make sure you're always in frame.

Taro TX Is A Handheld Gimbal With Auto-Tracking Powers
There’s no shortage of handheld gimbals in the market for both smartphone cameras and dedicated shooters alike. All of them can help you get stabilized footage, no matter how much you move during shoots. The Taro TX, however, will do more than that, as
it integrates auto-tracking technology that allows the gimbal to move the camera autonomously in order to keep a subject in frame. That’s right, this camera will follow a subject on its own, removing the need to manually move the gimbal
to properly track a shot. Not only does it save you from extra work while carrying the camera, it also means you can leave the whole thing on a tripod, sit back, and still get a properly-framed action shot. Heck, you can even have
it track you if that’s what the scene requires.
TARO AUTO TRACKER AND STABILIZER USES AI, INFRARED TECHNOLOGY
Taro, a new auto subject tracker and stabilizer, employs infrared technology to help your camera keep tracking subjects when they disappear from view. Designed for use with smartphones or traditional interchangeable lens cameras, Taro works by connecting
your camera to the device and selecting your subject. Taro then uses an AI-based infrared tracking algorithm that performs 30 calculations per second, making it possible to track objects moving as fast as 50 miles per hour, its developers
claim. For comparison, a typical smartphone can perform a maximum of two calculations per second.
比普通三脚架更稳，比普通自拍杆更智能。 大家都知道，拍摄运动人像是个技术活儿，因为这类照片实在太容易糊了。每次当你对好焦，满心欢喜地跟别人说“开始”，接着用手按下快门键的时候，然后就发现照片中的人虚虚晃晃，模糊不清。 但拍摄时如果有相机稳定器的话，照片就会清晰很多。不过普通的相机伴侣也存在一个问题，它很容易跟丢正在移动的对象。尤其是当我们穿过某个拐角或者从阴影处出来之后，之前还锁定在自己身上的镜头突然就不跟着人动了，这样的话就无法保证我们一直在镜头内。
Taro uses infrared technology and AI for improved subject tracking
Conventional tracking systems tend to struggle when the tracked subject briefly exits the frame or disappears behind another object. The new Taro auto-tracker and stabilizer tackles this problem with infrared technology. Users connect their smartphones,
DSLR cameras or existing Bluetooth stabilizers to Taro and select the target they want to track. Taro will then follow the target using an AI-based infrared tracking algorithm that performs 30 calculations per second. According to
the Taro team, this allows for tracking of objects that are moving as fast as 50 MPH.
Taro VR relaunched as Taro AI auto-tracking gimbal for smartphones and cameras
Taro AI is a new gimbal that can automatically track subjects using infrared signals. A few months ago, I talked about TaroVR, a mysterious product for capturing spherical 360 photos. They had approached me about their prototype product. At that time,
the concept was to create a smartphone gimbal that could automatically rotate the phone to take detailed fully spherical 360 photos. It looked promising, but I couldn’t tell you about it except to ask you guys to watch for it. Well,
Taro is now here but the concept has completely changed. Taro VR is now Taro AI, a line of gimbals for smartphones, action cameras, and DSLRs that uses infrared to track subjects automatically. Here is the new concept...

Taro Your Robot Cameraman
There is no getting away from images and video these days, but perfection is something that takes time and care. The trouble is in a busy world getting a retake just because you were too slow or out of focus is not normally an option, unless you get yourself
some help. With camera equipment being a bit pricey, there are few options available. But before you give up, check out the Taro! This is something that is well worth a look as it combines infrared technology with AI to produce a robotic
cameraman. Auto-tracking is super-useful when filming outdoor sports like skateboarding, parkour, skiing, basketball, or tennis. However, tracking a fast-moving target against a dynamically-shifting background makes it practically
impossible for tracking technologies to work properly. Until now, that is. Taro is proud to introduce a breakthrough product that automatically rotates and tracks your target, making it possible to free up your hands and put yourself
squarely in the frame to accurately capture all the action – effortlessly!
