The Gimble – the first product from the third generation of ACR gimbals, ready for working with light cameras. You can choose for yourself: you take the equipment or you can pass it to a film school of your choice
A wide range of accessories allows for versatile use of stabilizer – both while mounted to a car, under a drone, as well as while using a standard handheld.
Gimbal is a popular expression for an electronic camera stabilizer.
From the technical side, it is a device that controls the operations of three electrical engines that rotate a construction to a desired position, based on data provided by a set of sensors, such as gyroscopes, accelerometers, encoders, and GPS.
In practice, gimbal allows for maintaining a perfect horizon, remote control, and an array of other, creative possibilities enclosed within a compact form of a modern equipment.
Due to its small dimensions and possibilities, the device allows creative filmmakers to build shots from perspectives never seen before. The easiness in passing the gimbal from hands to hands, as well as in demounting the device from special systems such as Black Arm or Russian Arm, allows for totally new capabilities in building shots.
Gimbals and gimbal movement control systems are successfully used by „ground” operators as well as drone operators.
We possess enormous knowledge and experience within image stabilizing technology. We understand that each gimbal user looks for a device that will primarily be technologically advanced. Intuitive handling, durability, and attractive appearance, distinctive in comparison to other products, are also an advantage. Our plans, regarding technologies and new products, are set for three following years. It is possible thanks to enormous experience and knowledge acquired throughout the course of your previous activities.

Advanced Cinema Robotic Systems Spółka Akcyjna has all that is needed to meet the statutory purpose. Trade marks, mechanics designs, the license to develop and use of the software are owned by Spółka Akcyjna.
Our project developed within three entities:
British Limited company (the equivalent of Sp. o.o.) created for the purpose of the crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter, not continuing operating activities
Polish limited liability company which took over the entire project (IP, trademarks, designs, know-how, technology etc.) and continued the project after BeSteady
Polish joint stock company with transferred complete rights to trademarks, mechanics designs with a license for development and use of software, continuing present operations of limited liability company
One of our founders was taking shoots from the air while using unmanned flying vehicles, today commonly referred to as drones. The first prototypes were created in response to a question: how can we acquire stable footage?
The ideal was transformed into its physical form thanks to a crowdfunding campaign at Kickstarter (2013). The PLN 1 000 000 acquired this way allowed for manufacturing the first 100 gimbals, and it strengthened our conviction that we are on the right track.
The Investor joined us in early 2015. The goal was simple – creating a business model, finishing the technology, and preparing for changing the processes from workshop conditions to professional production. The amount of PLN 1 500 000 was invested into company’s development. This allowed us to achieve the envisaged goal.
Our devices are successfully used in various, different film locations, mostly in Germany, France, Great Britain, and in the USA. Many productions that we had the pleasure to see in cinemas have been created with our gimbals.
Thanks to the effort of the whole team and an extraordinary help from user communities, the third generation of gimbals has been optimized in regard to limiting production time and costs, easiness of operations, and maintenance.
Strong team of professionals that combine experience and knowledge in designing, programming, prototyping, production, advertising, and post-sale services is a guarantee of our success.
Another step is utilizing our established position, new technology, and experiences. Thanks to you, we will achieve greater operational readiness and we will be prepared for intensive expansion to foreign markets: USA, India, Europe, Australia. Join us!
Our clients can be characterized based on 3 main criteria. Based on a possessed camera (weight), realization type (air shots, car-to-car, ground operator, etc.), and the team (focus puller, remote director’s, remote control) the selection of a proper devices from our offer is of key importance. Thanks to its variety and the offer being systematically adjusted, we are able to meet the individual needs of our clients.
Operators with a very high income (working mostly in Hollywood and other recognized cinematographic towns, trends creators);
Operators with high income (production of advertising materials, music videos, short and longer documentaries);

Our products are thoroughly controlled before shipping to our clients. We apply strict quality standards and care for positive experiences of our clients, from the very first contact with a gimbal. We guarantee highest quality RMA service, the longest warranty period (2 years) on the market, and post-warranty repairs during the whole product exploitation period.
It is a first step towards acquiring money necessary for increasing the scale of an enterprise, and to launch a wide-scale marketing campaign. We have a creative, experienced, and innovative team of people, and proper technology. Currently, we want to focus on building global brand awareness and proper manufacturing infrastructure.

We will be able to optimize costs of acquired components, while at the same time scaling the production, in order to acquire highest profitability. We want products from the third generation to be manufactured in a most cost-effective way, without sacrificing the quality.
Due to an increase in scale, and for the purpose of speeding up the production, we wish to move to another premise. This will allow our team to have an on-location division of electronic engineers and programmers, which will substantively increase the effectiveness of our work.
The third generation of technology is modular and fast-adapting. Enormous experience gathered throughout previous years and the support of testers, clients, and distributors allowed us to prepare product portfolio, while considering the necessity of withdrawing some of the products, and introducing their successors for the following years.
Throughout last several years we have been building an advanced technology, while improving the business model. During this period, we have been testing client’s reaction towards innovation.
We are currently in a process of extending our offer, as well as increasing its availability on the market. For this purpose, we are strengthening the position of our company, we are tightening the cooperation with our subcontractors, and we are changing our production location.
In 2017 we will be developing our presence in the USA and Western Europe, strengthening our position in Poland, and we will be introducing our products in India. Additionally, in the following years we plan to take care of our clients from other countries of North America, South America, Australia, and Africa.
After three years, we plan to go public on Warsaw Stock Exchange. Alternatively, we will be considering an option of industry exit.
