Live Drone for Broadcast TV Transmission
LIVE BROADCAST DRONE FOR RETRANSMISSION
We are currently testing with our friends at AMP Visual TV to find the best setting on our drones to deliver the most broadcast image possible to the car. We brought two of our drones, the DJI Inspire 2 equipped with an X5S camera and the other an X7. Our tests are very positive and we found a setting that guarantees a broadcast image. It took an afternoon to find and transform our video signal from the drone going into the coach and that it does not skip in the movements. Our drones will now be dedicated to Live.
LIVE DRONE BROADCAST FOR TV
Our drones are mainly used for recording aerial images in different formats and quality. We have more and more requests for live re-transmission, which is why we have conducted HF re-transmission tests with our drones. The drone allows to have images for the live really different and complementary to the helicopter. The live broadcast drone makes it easy to set up and also to offer unique images to the director.
THE DRONE FOR THE LIVE TV BROADCAST
The broadcast signal is usually interlaced, our drones broadcast a progressive image, it is for this reason that we had to make technical tests of re-transmission HF to find the best technical solution and have a validation from AMP that our signal was fitting with ground crews and also helicopters. Our drones today are able to do live drones on important sports events or even concerts or other media events.
DRONE FOR FOREIGN PRODUCTIONS
We were commissioned by ASO to perform the live drone on the next Ironman World Championship in Hawaii. ASO trusts us, we have already collaborated with them on the Dakar, they know our seriousness and also our know-how and our technical knowledge. Many foreign productions call on us for drone aerial photography but also for live drones. For example, we have already done direct live drone for Givenchy, Yves St Laurent, France tv on the last Dakar.
LOGISTICS FOR SHOOTING TO HAWAI
The requests for filming authorizations for this production are not simple because to fly a drone in the United States request to have a pilot with a FAA license, a license that the drone pilot must imperatively pass to the USA and can not in any case take this exam online. The FAA does not yet recognize foreign drone pilot’s licenses, so we had to hire a pilot with his FAA license to fly. Then he is in charge of requests for overflight authorizations on US soil. We are going to bring for this shoot 2 DJI inspires 2 with the X5s and the X7 in order to have back up. This is to make the re-transmission live in drone on the triathlon.
