Syrp App Latest update


Building a whole new App from scratch with a bigger system in mind was no small task but our talented team has put in a huge amount of work over the last few years to completely re-imagine how a motion control system should work.

We will be periodically updating this article with the progress of the app so bookmark this page! Always make sure that the firmware is updated and you have the latest version of our app. These are our most recent updates:

SYRP GENIE 2 APP

The current Syrp Genie App will remain on the App Store for the time being but eventually, this app will become redundant and be removed. All of the features that were previously included in the old app have now been merged into the Syrp Genie 2 App including Panorama, Time-lapse, Turntable and Video modes.  Along with these features keyframing for time-lapse and video and multi-row panorama are included.

COMPATIBILITY

We have worked hard to make our new app backwards compatible with previously released products as much as we possibly could but due to hardware constraints, there are ultimately some limitations.

The goal for Syrp Genie II App is to ensure that all the key functionalities are as reliable as possible before we roll out any advanced new features. Some of the features we expect to release relatively quickly, as we have completed a significant amount of work already, others might take a bit longer.

Thanks to everyone for being so patient while we worked through the development of our new system! We appreciate how frustrating it can be to wait for a new product especially with film projects passing you by but with a new system in place we're confident the wait will be worth it.
