Editor's View: Up in the Air

I’d like to invite you to join me at the 2015 National Drone Show, a conference and expo dedicated to video production with unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs). Held Dec. 2-3 at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center, the National Drone Show will bring thousands of video professionals together for two days of discussions and demos of the latest in UAVs and video capture, management and delivery technologies.

Drones have appeared on the radar of virtually every industry. The technology is inspiring fascinating business possibilities and raising new considerations involving regulation, security, privacy and safety. We’re pleased to bring the discussion about drones to the heart of the nation’s capital.

The National Drone Show will feature a drone flying cage, free-to-attend sessions on the exhibit floor covering the latest drone technologies, and regulatory topics and in-depth training sessions for UAV users produced in partnership with Stampede. To register to attend this (free) event, visit www.nationaldroneshow.com.

Show sessions include:

  • Command & Control for Drones
  • Drones for Large Sporting Event and Entertainment Event Coverage
  • Drones for Law Enforcement/Security/Public Safety
  • “Dronevertising” — Using Drones to Deliver Marketing/Advertising Messages
  • Rise of the Drones: A DMV Producer’s Panel for Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs)

We’re pleased to partner with the Television, Internet and Video Association of D.C. (TIVA-DC) for the Aerial User Group Show and Tell, which takes place after regular show hours on Dec. 2. Bring your UAV/drone to the D.C. Convention Center and join TIVA members as they talk about the best spots to fly in the Delaware, Maryland and Virginia (DMV) area. Other topics include tips on getting permission to fly, gaining access to a venue/field and getting insurance coverage. This event is a great opportunity to meet fellow aviators and network.

The National Drone Show is the only event that brings together video professionals from the Washington region’s government, military, law enforcement, enterprise, broadcast, cable, production and postproduction communities. Invited exhibitors include drone manufacturers, drone accessory equipment companies, and drone software and service providers.

I hope to see you there. For more information, visit www.nationaldroneshow.com.
