Orlando, FL –Amimon, a manufacturer of wireless HD video and bi-directional control transmission products, recently rolled out SkyLink for unmanned aerial vehicles.
With SkyLink, a camera operator with a hand-held monitor can be up to 6,000 feet (2,000m) away from the camera – viewing HD video and controlling what the camera sees with absolutely no delay – while a second operator controls the mobile device’s movement and makes it fly, run, swoop or spin. The zero-latency link provides new possibilities for a wide range of uses.
“Amimon SkyLink is driving the video acquisition of the most innovative mobile camera systems. SkyLink truly sets the camera free from control and monitoring functions,” said Ram Ofir, CEO of Amimon. “With this technology in place, cameras can fly, ski, sail and run, while operators maintain full control of the framing, focus and other important control functions.”
Some UAV manufacturers have taken note of SkyLink's capability and performance.
“Customers report excellent results in image quality, robustness and extended range,” said Sebastian Seidel, CEO of UAV manufacturer Globe Flight GmbH. “With SkyLink mounted on a Multicopter, we gained the ability to transmit HD live with perfect quality at a much lower cost. UAV makers and operators have been waiting a long time for Amimon’s SkyLink.”
“At FreeFly we are passionate about the intersection of Art and Technology,” Tabb Firchau, owner of FreeFly Systems said. “Our customers put our products in amazing situations … Amimon wireless technology combined with the Freefly MōVI removes the technical limitations and allows artists to focus on creating incredible shots.”
