“I was able to test out the bots today and I’m ecstatic about how well it performs and how simple it is to use!!! I’m gonna put it to action right away this weekend! I demo-ed it for fun on social media and shared it with my friends and everyone was dying to know, haha.”
—Isaac K. Lee, Watermark OC Church
“Our Lead Pastor loves to walk around a lot on stage, so after choosing the Jigabot EX Kit 1 and giving it a try, we could not believe how much easier it made our live stream. No longer did we have to constantly change shots to keep him in frame. With the help of the Jigabot team we had all the support we needed to make our installation and setup quick and simple.”
—Chris Jenkins, Encounter Church Amarillo
“We certainly appreciate your help in getting us up and running with the Jigabot… Just to give you some perspective, our Sound Booth is about 65-70 feet away from our stage. Now, our Pastor can use the entire stage without having to worry about running out of frame! Please feel free to forward our contact info to anyone who might be interested in researching your product, and we’ll gladly respond with positive feedback! “
—Tony Creson, Somerset Baptism Church

How does it work?
Ex Bot follows tiny DOTs attached to a pastor or performer. DOTs can be placed on clothing, or worn on a neck lanyard (shown here). They are powered for up to 9 hours with a battery pack worn in a pocket, or on a belt or lanyard.
Why DOT Tracking? It is simply the most dependable tracking technology at any price. Wherever you turn, your EX Bot will never lose you! This tracking technology far more reliable than face-tracking AI, or radio RTLS.
