Measure Links Drone as a Service with Live-Streaming News Footage

Posted by Betsy Lillian on October 14, 2016 No Comments

Measure says it has become the first drone service provider to join the freelancer network of LiveU-equipped video professionals and broadcasters.

LiveU equipment is currently used globally by major broadcasting stations for live video transmission via cellular networks. Measure’s nationwide network of drone pilots is now integrated into LiveU’s freelancer network – in turn, linking video professionals with news media organizations.

“Bringing Measure into the LiveU family provides our broadcast customers with a unique viewpoint to cover news, weather, natural disasters, traffic, events and sports,” comments Mike Savello, LiveU’s vice president of sales. “The possibilities for drone footage are truly endless.”

Using LiveU, Measure recently live-streamed video from its drones to an enterprise media customer after Hurricane Matthew. Measure says this type of instantaneous aerial coverage improves situational awareness and response time as news breaks.

“LiveU’s leading-edge technology and global media network naturally fit Measure’s Drone as a Service business model,” says Dave Bowen, Measure’s managing director of special projects. “Measure looks forward to delivering aerial news coverage in real time with LiveU, in addition to live-streaming inspection work on critical infrastructure for its telecommunications customers.”
