Memery, Inc. a developer of location based video apps, has announced Dragonfly, a cloud based solution for storing, organizing, and sharing drone video. The company has also added Darren Liccardo, a VP of Engineering at DJI, to its advisory board. Dragonfly is available now on the App Store. The company is offering a promotion of the app,” Try Dragonfly in July“. The promotion allows users to lock in up to 50% off the cost of backup and storage packages, a DJI Spark sweepstakes, and video contests for prizes including a DJI Mavic Pro, DJI Goggles, and terabytes of free storage.
The company states in a release that “The advent of affordable, gesture-controlled drones has exploded the consumer drone community into the millions, but management and enjoyment of drone video remains out of reach to the average person. Point solutions such as mobile editing apps, storage appliances, and cloud-based file syncing services create a disjointed, frustrating and expensive experience. Dragonfly is the first and only app that provides a complete solution that can be used by everyone.”
Dragonfly uses a mobile phone as something of a wireless transfer station. The app transfers video from a drone to a phone (without the need to remove the memory card obviously) and then from the phone to the cloud when the phone next connects to WiFi.
Features of Dragonfly include:
- Automatic organization of video on the map and in filtered galleries
- Engaging emotion reactions to highlight important moments with no editing
- Automatic video mixes easily shared to social media, text, or saved to the phone
- Permanent video backup and disaster recovery
- Transcoding of video for mobile viewing and sharing
- Original high resolution files available for editing or streaming to a television
- A web based uploader for rapid transfer of existing collections to the Dragonfly cloud
“With the introduction of industry leading products like the DJI Spark, cutting edge drone technology is now available to the rest of us,” said Chris Morace, co-founder and CEO of Memery. “This has created a tremendous demand for a simple way to easily organize and enjoy drone video. Dragonfly offers a gorgeous experience and unprecedented ease of use—if you know how to plug in your phone and launch an app then you’re ready to go.”
Concurrent with the release of Dragonfly, Memery has added former DJI executive and co-founder of DJI’s Silicon Valley office, Darren Liccardo to its advisory board. Prior to that he was at Tesla Motors, where he was the electric car company’s director of autopilot engineering. As location based video is being created by an increasing number of devices beyond the phone, Darren will use his deep background in sensors and robotics to guide Memery’s strategy to make the enjoyment of this video simple.
“Memery has clearly seen a future where we have many devices that are capturing our lives in new and innovative ways. I’m excited to help them in their mission to make the organization and enjoyment of video easy for everyone,” Liccardo said.
