NAB has jumped on the drone bandwagon by giving the aerial filming specialism its own exhibit. The Drone Pavilion will feature dozens of aerial robotics companies, a flying cage, demonstration area with seating, and daily sessions.
It is sponsored by DJI Innovations and presented by Drone Media Group, a US drone filming training group.
“Unmanned aerial systems are increasingly being used to cover live events and breaking news, and in industries such as real estate, law enforcement, search and rescue, and more,” said Mannie Frances, co-founder, Drone Media Group. “Drones were one of the hottest technologies at the 2014 NAB Show.”
Exhibitors include Canon, Amimon, DSLR Pros, XFly Systems, TeraLogics, Go Professional Cases, ArrowData, Sky High Media, ZM Interactive, Unmanned Vehicle University and DJI.
Presentations will include laws and regulations surrounding drones, the use of drones for news gathering, drones in space (NASA Project Case Study), capturing aerial video and employing range extenders.
Drones sales are expected to top $1bn by 2018 according to the Consumer Electronics Association.
The new exhibit area is located in the South Upper Hall of the Las Vegas Convention Center.
