AS PART OF A CLOUD COMPUTING meet-up in the Questum Centre, videographer Jack Allen will attempt to fly the Clonmel Digital Campus drone on a survey mission along the proposed route of the Clonmel outer ring road. If high winds scrub the flight, we will be inside a Zoom Conference room that you're welcome to join between 1115 and 1145 Irish time on Saturday, April 13, 2019.
Thanks to the generous RAM on my Samsung Note 9, we've been able to fly the DJI Phantom while streaming its video to an audience. We've discovered there's good interactivity from an audience who enjoys seeing an "eye in the sky" drone while talking to the aircrew. People can ask pilot Jack Allen to direct the drone's 4K camera at specific landmarks, recording video footage and snapping high resolution still photos. The on-board mission tracking of the DJI Phantom 3 Pro records its flight path, giving us an exceptionally accurate idea of where items are located under the drone's flight path. We use Wowza Cloud Streaming and our work can be seen on a specific hosted page.
We will put archival footage on this blog post after the live stream is finished at 1140. You can join the Zoom Conference at http://zoom.us/j/386174369 between 1115 and 1145 on Saturday the 13th of April and I will recap our day in the Spreaker clip below.
