Aerial Video

Aerial videography (or airborne imagery) is the taking of video from an aircraft or other flying object. Platforms for aerial videography include fixed-wing aircraft, helicopters, unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs or drones), balloons, blimps and dirigibles, rockets, pigeons, kites, parachutes, stand-alone telescoping and vehicle-mounted poles. Mounted cameras may be triggered remotely or automatically; hand-held photographs may also be taken by the drone operator.

Advancements in video technology have made video for small business more affordable. Popular applications of action (motion control) video include announcements, product videos, service videos, and several other types of promotional video. Three-dimensional visual imagery (video) is the timely union of digital media, motion video, stereo sound, panoramic timelapse imagery sets, immersive media constructs, audio, and other data.

Video can be used for project scope understanding, and project schedule tracking. The integration of digital video and automated image processing improves the cost-effectiveness of data collection and reduction. We use several different video platforms for video production.
