The media is always looking for new ways in which it can collect and deliver information to an audience. With unique aerial views this can be more easily achieved.
UAVs can be deployed almost anywhere imaginable and at short notice. They are also a lot more cost effective and this makes it easier to justify the use of aerial photography in more instances where it would normally be deemed too expensive or inappropriate.
Our UAVs create little to no down wash, unlike conventional helicopters, making low level filming possible in many circumstances.
For media houses that pride themselves in providing the public with news as it unfolds, then UAVs are the way to go. UAVs can be deployed almost anywhere imaginable and at short notice; they are faster than masts on vehicles. The camera crew in charge of the UAV can gain footage from an angle, and at a distance which otherwise might be unsafe. For example during riots, unruly demonstrations and accident sites. And, UAVs can be fitted with devices to allow connection to mobile phones or the internet so that images can be streamed directly back to the news room for instant broadcast.
