Ambarella Inc. (AMBA – Snapshot Report), a leading developer of chips for the high-definition capture market, reported is Q2 fiscal 2016 earnings after the bell Tuesday. Last quarter, the supplier for GoPro (GPRO) beat the Zacks Consensus Estimate by 24.44%.

AMBA’s technology is used in GoPro’s first person point-of-view cameras, allowing users to take personal action and sports-related videos. GoPro has since partnered with Google (GOOGL) for its “Helpouts” services, which provide users a help in completing tasking like playing the piano via a camera.
