Digital Sputnik is launching a drone mountable DS LED Heli System at NAB 2014. In a co-operation with Intuitive Aerial, using their Black Armored Drone, the DS LED System aims to offer output and flexibility in aerial lighting.
This is the first time a small drone is able to carry a lightweight light output equivalent of 1.5kW HMI, the company claims. The system is controllable over WiFi using an iOS app.
Kaur Kallas, co founder of Digital Sputnik said "Flying the DS LED System creates a whole new paradigm in lighting for film and television. Never before has it been possible to fly such a high output light source with a drone. The DS team is giving the creative industry yet another revolutionary mobile creative tool, all the while not sacrificing on output and mobility."
The DS LED Heli System is based on the DS LED System. The lightheads are universal and compatible with the DS LED System and DS Mürsik Frames. The System offers features including power supply for as many as three LED light modules controllable separately or in groups; three LED light modules with RGBW-power LEDs or Daylight White LEDs; and a variety of lenses and diffusers for shaping light output to the user’s unique requirements.
