Aeryon Labs partners for cloud-based, live video distribution

By Emily Aasand | May 05, 2015

Aeryon Labs Inc., a small unmanned aerial systems (sUAS) manufacturer, and Dejero, a leader in the remote acquisition, cloud management and multiscreen distribution of live video of IP, announced a partnership to enable secure, real-time distribution of HD video captured by Aeryon through the Dejero LIVE platform to allow remote, real-time access from any internet connected devices.

Rather than trusting a single wireless connection to stream video from the Aeryon sUAS, Dejero’s technology bonds multiple wireless connections (3G, 4G, LTE, Wi-Fi, microwave, and satellite) to minimize latency and deliver broadcast-quality live video, the company said.

“Since introducing our first sUAS in 2009, we have developed unmatched expertise in aerial image capture in the most demanding applications on earth,” said Dave Kroetsch, president and CEO of Aeryon Labs. “Dejero brings a unique and complementary set of operationally-proven capabilities to ensure that the video captured by our UAS is presented to the right people, wherever that may be, without compromising quality of the image or the timeliness of delivery.”

Having remote access to live aerial imagery will result in more accurate and timely decision making in multiple industries including law enforcement, where police can use the technology to capture unique vantage points to better plan authorize and safely respond. The live video stream can also be beneficial in emergency first response and infrastructure inspection, in industries such as oil and gas, petrochemical, and power transmission, where inspectors can solicit opinions from off-site experts in real-time, said the companies.

The Aeryon SkyRanger offers flight times of over 50 minutes, and its folding design makes it highly portable and faster to deploy.

“We are excited to enter this partnership with Aeryon Labs. Small UAS present the capability to capture video from vantage points that are otherwise inaccessible, and the integration with Dejero’s technology will help customers in multiple industries unlock greater business value from UAS-based imagery,” said Brian Cram, CEO of Dejero.

In April, Aeryon Labs also partnered with GlobalMedic, which provides disaster response with a rescue unit, and Monadrone, an IT and software development company that services countries in Europe and Africa, to provide aerial support to disaster relief teams on the ground in Nepal following the recent 7.8-magnitute earthquake.
