MSI-ECS To Distribute DJI Drones And Cameras In The Philippines

MSI-ECS, a leading IT equipment distributor in the Philippines, has partnered with DJI, one of the world’s  leading civilian drones and aerial imaging technology, to become an Authorized Distributor 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.

The Mavic Pro is small, foldable and compact drone. 

“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.”

MSI-ECS has carefully carved its reputation as one of the country’s leading providers of innovative IT solutions. As the interest around drones and handheld products continue to grow, DJI’s extensive range of aerial platforms and imaging solutions will help MSI-ECS reach new customer and fuel the rapid growth of company’s business. The additional retail touch points will also serve as a platform for people to discover and experience the technology first hand, whether they are a professional interested in the latest aerial imaging equipment or someone looking for their first drone.

The new Phantom 4 advanced has a 1-inch, 20- megapixel sensor, mechanical shutter and some features from Phantom 4 including Draw, ActiveTrack, TapFly, Gesture, Tripod and the FlightAutonomy system.

“MSI-ECS’s has a track record of working with some of the biggest global technology brands, extensive experience in IT channel distribution and a comprehensive network of retail partners. This partnership will enable us to bring our best-in-class aerial platforms and imaging solutions across the Philippines so that more people can learn about the technology and better understand what it can do for them. Whether it’s for recreational purposes or using it as a tool to make their workflow more efficient, our goal is to help creators realize their creative visions and expand the use of this amazing technology across different industries,” said Kevin On, DJI’s Director of Communication.

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.
