The NAB 2017 Show kicks off on Monday in Las Vegas, Nevada, and there are some pretty big drone announcements coming out of it.
Drones are flying at there own “Aerial Robotics and Drone Pavilion” this year. In addition to being able to attend a number of sessions including aerial cinematography techniques, live broadcasting and Part 107 certification, attendees will get to see new product launches.
Here are 5 new drone product launches happening at NAB 2017 that you need to know about:
4. The FlyingEye 6K VR drone by 360 Designs: Live streaming VR company 360 Designs announced at NAB the Flying EYE, a broadcast quality, live streaming, virtual reality drone, capable of streaming live, 6K, 360 video, with a range of over 5 miles. The drone’s wireless video system offers near uncompressed, low latency, 6K video, and is designed to carry the 360 Designs’ Mini EYE 3 camera, though it is also compatible with other 3-camera, HDMI or SDI-based VR rigs. 360 Designs’ Breeze 6K wireless transmission system pairs with an integrated live stitching system. The 360 drone actually uses the DJI Matrice 600 Series commercial drone. The whole rig costs $75,000.
5. DJI CrystalSky: DJI showed off a prototype of CrystalSky at CES earlier this year, but now the bright monitor is available for purchase.
