Are you an experienced DJI pilot, with an interest in contributing to cutting edge new technology? Aerobo is looking for you. The following is a guest post by Sasha Rezvina of aerial cinematography company Aerobo.
Aerobo, the leading aerial cinematography company in the U.S., is building the world’s first augmented reality drone flight tool, Vermeer. The software has been engineered to improve the experience of flying a drone and increase the pilot’s control over the picture or video that the drone is capturing.
A Bit of Background
Aerobo was founded two and a half years ago by filmmaker Brian Streem. As a producer, Streem recognized that there were significant technical hurdles that inhibited creatives from realizing their perfect shot. When he first saw a drone back in 2014, he immediately saw the potential to improve how a camera can be moved in 3D space.
A year later, Streem was running a drone company that served clients in the entertainment, construction, and agriculture industries. Today, Aerobo has scaled to operate in 30 states and three countries, leveraging their nationwide network of drone pilots.
The Aerobo team sees Vermeer as the next step in their goal to better control cameras in 3-dimensional space. Their team of aeronautical engineers, AR/VR designers, and full-stack developers is distilling their UAV pilots’ expertise into an mobile application.
A Call For Pilots
Aerobo is launching a closed beta test for Vermeer, and they’re seeking experienced DJI drone pilots to participate. Participants who are selected will be the first to test the exciting new technology and will have free access throughout the duration of the beta. They’ll be asked to provide feedback via email, phone, or, in rare cases, in person.
The beta is scheduled to start July 1st, and run for approximately 6-8 weeks. Sign up at getvermeer.com to be considered for the exclusive beta program or to get updates on the development of the product. Reach out to [email protected] if you have any questions.
