ABC, Telstra drones to capture NYE fireworks from 1000ft

Cloud News Asia

Drones flown by both the ABC and Telstra will add a bird’s-eye view of Sydney’s New Year’s Eve fireworks to TV and online broadcasts tonight. The national broadcaster is touting its live-to-air drone-filmed coverage of the 9pm and midnight fireworks as an “Australian television first”. It plans to send two purpose-built quadcopters equipped with HD cameras and broadcast links 1000 ft above Sydney Harbour, which will feed live video to feature in its annual New Years Eve broadcast, alongside footage from nine harbourside cameras and a manned helicopter.
