Dejero and Draganfly Partner to Provide High Quality Realtime Video Transport from the Skies

Dejero, an innovator in cloud-managed solutions that provide video transport and Internet connectivity while mobile or in remote locations, has formed a technology partnership with Canadian-based sUAS (small Unmanned Aircraft System) industry experts, Draganfly Innovations Inc. The collaboration sees Draganfly’s Commander UAV (unmanned aerial vehicle) quadcopter bundled together with the Dejero EnGo mobile transmitter—providing real-time video transport from the air. In addition, the companies’ combined expert knowledge will bring new and innovative solutions and services to Dejero’s broadcast customers and Draganfly’s customers across the many industry verticals they serve.

This powerful collaboration enables broadcasters to integrate live video captured with UAVs into their newsgathering, sports and event coverage, and video production for television and online audiences. It will also facilitate Dejero in reaching new industries and applications, providing real-time on-board video transport over IP to the military, public safety, and government sectors that Draganfly has traditionally operated in.
The Draganflyer Commander UAV is a remotely operated, unmanned, miniature helicopter designed to carry wireless camera systems. The professional quality, powerful, easy to fly aerial platform is specifically designed for high endurance applications such as public safety, search and rescue, agriculture, mapping, aerial photography, and more. Dejero’s highly versatile EnGo mobile transmitter will be instrumental in reliably providing high-quality live video from Draganfly’s Commander, which will in turn allow Draganfly to elevate its offering.
“Historically, UAV use in broadcast has been challenging, in particular when it comes to providing high-quality video with low latency and with the reliability needed for live broadcasts,” explains Kevin Fernandes, VP of Sales at Dejero. “Through our collaboration with Draganfly, we can provide an effective solution for broadcast and media organizations, as well as other industries requiring the reliability and picture quality that customers require.”
“We are thrilled to be adding broadcast-quality live video feeds to our Commander vehicle,” said Draganfly President, Zenon Dragan. “The timing couldn’t be better as we’ve recently expanded into contract engineering and custom product development. Our partnership with Dejero will greatly support this.”
Well-versed in the design of sophisticated multi-rotor aircraft, ground-based robots, and fixed wing aircraft, Draganfly also provides custom payloads, ground-up software design, electronics, UAV program development, and flight training.
“Our companies have a wonderful synergy being at the forefront of innovation in our specific industries. Bringing our technology and expertise together will ensure that our solutions develop faster and go further to serve our customers,” concluded Fernandes.
