Proprietary Technology Makes Airborne Electronic News Gathering and Video News Surveillance Affordable for Broadcasters in All Size Media Markets
Online PR News – 03-March-2013 – FORT WORTH, TEXAS – Aquilus announced today the launch of a high definition airborne ENG service using proprietary HD drone camera technology. “Our technology allows for greater resolution and substantially lowers the costs for news gathering, traffic watch, news surveillance and other airborne broadcasting applications around the globe.” says CEO Lance Locher.
With Aero Kinetics as the exclusive aviation services provider, the proprietary drone technology allows Aquilus to offer its customers real-time HD-ENG, HD-INFRARED and HD-NIGHT VISION video over a variety of delivery platforms including, but not limited to, Microwave and 4-G networks. The system also delivers, in real-time, latitude/longitude coordinates for ground tracking and onscreen mapping, as well as GEO-LOCK capabilities to ensure precise imaging on the subject matter.
The proprietary system is designed to be installable on multiple aircraft including Cessna airplanes, as well as Bell, Robinson, and Eurocopter helicopters all of which are manned. “Any News Director will tell you High Definition Airborne Coverage is compelling content. We took that to heart and went a step further to develop this service for News Directors who truly understand that content drives revenues.” says W. Hulsey Smith, Chairman of Aquilus.
Unlike existing systems, Aquilus offers this exclusive turn-key solution as a service, reducing the CAPEX requirements of its clients, and resulting in cost savings for those currently using traditional ENG surveillance methods. Large and small markets now have an affordable, HD airborne solution for surveillance and ENG solutions at a fraction of the cost. “Our HD solution delivers compelling content through state-of-the-art technology at a price point that makes Station Managers smile. It just makes dollars and sense.” says Locher.
