MSI-ECS has partnered with DJI to become an authorized distributor of their civilian drones and aerial imaging technology in the Philippines.

MSI-ECS will carry an array of DJI products, including the smallest, most compact, foldable drone, the Mavic Pro, the iconic Phantom drone series, the ready to fly professional platform for filmmakers the Inspire 2, as well as handheld gimbals from the Osmo series. DJI products will be on shelves in more than 50 retail outlets in the consumer electronics, photography, hobbyist and lifestyle channels across the Philippines.

“As digital lifestyle continues to evolve, MSI-ECS is committed to being at the forefront of the world’s latest and most innovative products, solutions, and services, which will allow us to better serve the changing needs of the market,” said Jimmy Go, President and CEO, MSI-ECS Phils. Inc. “In a recent industry report released by Gartner, production of drones for personal and commercial use is growing rapidly, with global market revenue expected to reach more than $6 billion in 2017 and grow to more than $11.2 billion by 2020. Up to three million drones will be produced in 2017, 39% more than in 2016.”

“In the Philippines, the interest and usage of civilian drones have also grown dramatically and we are confident that its use for commercial purposes will also gain momentum. The addition of drones to our impressive portfolio will not only boost our offerings but also enable us to anticipate market changes, especially as technological advances continue to blur the lines between personal and commercial applications,” he added.

Just last week, DJI added a new addition to the Phantom family, which is now available for pre-orders in the Philippines. The Phantom 4 Advanced offers creators an affordable way to capture amazing aerial imagery with a more powerful camera. The new model improves on the original Phantom 4, giving photographers a 1-inch, 20-megapixel sensor and a mechanical shutter. It is also equipped with many of the intelligent features offered on the Phantom 4 Pro, including Draw, ActiveTrack, TapFly, Gesture, Tripod and the FlightAutonomy system.
