No Pilot Skills Required - CNN & BBC are using this
Ever tried to fly a drone? It is not that easy!
Fotokite, spin-off from Swiss Robotics Competence in Research, takes a whole different approach to the drone.
Thanks to unique patent-pending technology, the Fotokite may be launched in seconds (cold-start) without calibration, radio checks or waiting for GPS lock. Once in the air, tether length, vehicle position and camera direction can be adjusted intuitively from the ground station. A live low-latency uncompressed Full HD video downlink enables effective framing and live broadcast using an external HDMI or SDI port.
The line connected to the drone makes things very practical:
- fly the drone like a kit
- unlimited air time
- realtime HD video streaming
If I would be in filming, I certainly would like to take this one for a test drive. BBC & CNN already using Fotokite.
