A few weeks ago we announced our plans to make our full v2 line of 360 Plug-n-Play™ 360 video rigs compatible with the new GoPro™ Hero5 Black camera. This week, we are excited to introduce the 360RIZE Upgrade Program which will allow both existing users and future customers to upgrade their 360RIZE rigs to support the GoPro™ Hero5 Black cameras.
Any customer who purchases a qualifying 360 Plug-n-Play™ holder between now and January 2, 2017 will receive a free upgrade kit for GoPro™ Hero5 Black compatibility. Currently available for pre-order on shop.360rize.com, this promotion offers v2 users up to $360 in savings on adding Hero5 Black compatibility. This will allow your 360 rig to support the Hero3, Hero4 and Hero5 cameras. Any order placed for the following 360RIZE products qualifies for a free upgrade kit (minus the cost of shipping and handling). Upgrade kits will begin to ship January, 2017.
All orders placed from now until December 1st will ship with a coupon code which users can redeem at a later date on the shop.360rize.com web store to receive their free upgrade kit (minus shipping and handling). See below for a list of upgrade kit sales prices and savings:

Upgrade kits will include a number of hinged camera holder assemblies that corresponds to the specific rig (ex. Pro6 Upgrade Kits will ship with 6 camera holder assemblies). The kits will also include all necessary hardware and tools for upgrading each customer’s particular rig.
The Adaptability of 360 Plug-n-Play™
Thanks to our 360 Plug-n-Play™ line’s modular design, we were able to create an upgrade path for existing users as well as new solutions utilizing these new cameras.
In April at the 2016 NAB Show, we introduced the world’s first modular 360 Plug-n-Play™ rigs designed to house multiple GoPro™ cameras in a spherical orientation. Designed with anodized aluminum cores and durable interchangeable injected molded polymer camera holding mechanisms, the design was intended to allow users to alternate between different cameras and configurations with the same center or base.
“Our goal with creating the modular design was to keep our product line adaptable in this quickly evolving market,” said Michael Kintner, 360RIZE CEO and founder, in regard to the product announcement. “With camera technology advancing so rapidly, we want content creators to be able to keep their rigs up to date and to be able to create multiple configurations without having to start from scratch every year.”
The 360RIZE product line of v2 360 Plug-n-Play™ Holders now offers support for the new GoPro™ Hero5 Black, Hero4, Hero3, and Hero3+ cameras.
