​IBC launches Drone Zone

IBC could hardly ignore one of the most dramatic innovations of the last year, and so just as NAB featured a special UAV section, so IBC has corralled a spot to fly quadcopters, octocopters and flying machines of all descriptions.

The Drone Zone is a “very large flying cage”, located in Congress Square in the centre of the RAI. IBC Drone Zone exhibitors will have access to the flight cage to demonstrate their products in a real, outdoor environment in what the organiser's call a spectacular demonstration area.

There's no reason to doubt that and at least the buzzing noise will be kept off the show floor. After all, there is a limit to what you can say about a drone sitting on an exhibition stand.

As IBC puts it “affordable and easily controlled miniature flying machines and the new breed of small camera have come together in a new creative tool capable of delivering a stunning new viewpoint of the highest quality in video technology.”

Exhibitor details aren't yet available but will no doubt build if you visit IBC.org and hit the Feature Areas button in the visitor section.
