Held Dec. 7–8, 2016, in the Walter E. Washington Convention Center and co-located with NewBay Media’s Government Video Expo, the National Drone Show (NDS) will again bring together thousands of video professionals for two days of cutting-edge discussions and demos of the latest UAV and video capture systems, management and delivery technologies and techniques. Prominent keynote speakers include Lisa Ellman of the Commercial Drone Alliance.

The National Drone Show will feature a Drone Flying Cage; a series of free-to-attend sessions on the exhibit floor covering the latest drone technologies and regulatory topics; and an intensive, day-long educational program, the Advanced UAV Workshop, held Dec. 7. Among the highlights:

  • Instructors from Unmanned Vehicle University, the only university in the world licensed to offer graduate degree programs in Unmanned Systems Engineering, will conduct free drone-operating demonstrations and educational sessions throughout the show in the Flying Cage, allowing attendees to experience firsthand the differing capabilities of various UAV technologies — such as DJI, AEE and XLY — and learn what products are best suited for their unique needs and requirements.
  • The Advanced UAV Workshop is a day-long track of drone training sessions produced in conjunction with Future Media Concepts/SMG; it is designed for all organizations and professionals wishing to incorporate UAV into their production workflow and for all UAV and drone operators planning to become pilots for commercial use. Sessions include “Preparing for Your FAA Part 107 Test,” “Integrating UAV Into the Corporate/Commercial Environment,” “UAV Cinematography: A Recipe for Guaranteed Success,” “Identifying & Mitigating Risk in UAV Operation,” “Filters for UAV Cameras” and “A High-Level Overview of Current UAV Vehicles, Tools, Functions and Add-Ons.”
  • The D.C. Drone Film Festival will celebrate the visionary work of drone videographers from around the country. They’ll compete for cash and other prizes, and the winning entries will be screened at the show.

The show is the only such event to bring together thousands of video professionals from the Washington region’s government, military, law enforcement, enterprise, broadcast, cable, production and post production communities. Invited exhibitors include drone manufacturers, drone accessory equipment companies and drone software and service providers.

Identifying & Mitigating Risk in UAV Operation

UAV Workshop | Registration Required

Understanding risk is the first step in reducing accidents while operating a UAV.  Mitigation of risk carries across all aspects of any UAV project, including operational hazards, safety, efficiency, and overall insurance cost reduction. Protecting your investment in equipment and personnel along with protecting your client is the key to success. Using internationally recognized standards and recommended practices from International Civil Aviation Organization, International Standards Organization, Occupational Health & Safety, and global UAV best practices, this session will detail mechanisms, practices, and tools to help identify and minimize risk points in any sort of UAV operation whether corporate, enterprise, infrastructure, or agency.

This section of the UAV workshop details how to identify and mitigate risk in UAV operation and is taught by experienced instructors from SGS HART Aviation, a leading provider of aviation auditing services around the globe, providing confidence in the safe and efficient delivery of aviation operations.

Filters for UAV Cameras

UAV Workshop | Registration Required

Virtually every UAV/RTF drone uses the same image-processing chip and most have similar lenses. Unfortunately for production, none of them are ideal and they all operate at very high shutter speeds.  At this time there is no stock UAV/drone camera that operates out of the box to its full potential. WHY?  Because none of the UAV image processing chips allow for shutter speed control, and as a result, it is up to the user to slow the shutter speed. This can only be done through the use of filters.  

This session will focus on three types of filters that benefit UAV/drone operators:

•  Polarizers

•  Neutral Density

•  Gradients

Each of these filters serves a particular purpose. In this session, you will learn when to use a specific filter to maximize the potential of your UAV and get the best possible footage.

This section of the UAV workshop defines the types of filters available and how to successfully incorporate these filters with your UAV use.
