Mobile and remote location video transport and communications solutions provider Dejero has formed a technology partnership with fellow Canadian firm Draganfly, an expert in small Unmanned Aircraft System (sUAS) technology.

dejero 11july2018The partnership will see Draganfly’s Commander unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) quadcopter bundled together with the Dejero EnGo mobile transmitter to provide real-time video transport from the air. The Draganflyer Commander UAV is a remotely operated, unmanned, miniature helicopter designed to carry wireless camera systems. The aerial platform is specifically designed for high endurance applications while the EnGo mobile transmitter will be instrumental in providing live video from Draganfly’s Commander, which will in turn allow Draganfly to elevate its offering.

Broadcasters will now be able integrate live video captured with UAVs into their newsgathering, sports and event coverage, and video production for television and online audiences. It will also facilitate Dejero in reaching new industries and applications, providing real-time on-board video transport over IP to the sectors that Draganfly has traditionally operated in.

“Historically, UAV use in broadcast has been challenging, in particular when it comes to providing high-quality video with low latency and with the reliability needed for live broadcasts,” explained Kevin Fernandes, VP of sales at Dejero. “Through our collaboration with Draganfly, we can provide an effective solution for broadcast and media organisations, as well as other industries requiring the reliability and picture quality that customers require. Our companies have a wonderful synergy being at the forefront of innovation in our specific industries. Bringing our technology and expertise together will ensure that our solutions develop faster and go further to serve our customers.”

“We are thrilled to be adding broadcast-quality live video feeds to our Commander vehicle,” added Draganfly president, Zenon Dragan. “The timing couldn’t be better as we’ve recently expanded into contract engineering and custom product development. Our partnership with Dejero will greatly support this.”
