It’s doubtful you’ll find any nay-sayers to the claim that the future of film has been elevated by the advent of new drone technologies. A leader in developing such technology is IDEABOOST alumni Perceptiv Labs Inc., who have designed a ground-breaking, vision-based intelligence technology for the commercial drone industry. Their innovative core product -SHIFT- is a system of sensors and computing that enables a drone to perceive its environment and function autonomously. SHIFT allows filmmakers to track high-speed dynamic subjects and custom frame them anywhere in the shot. It executes precise repeatable flight paths and camera motions for aerial filming like a “virtual dolly” in the air and keeps creative control in the operator’s hands while abstracting out complex gimbal and drone motion. This state-of-the-art, vision-guided camera motion control system is available as an upgrade kit for the most popular drones from DJI and 3DRobotics. SHIFT uses the latest in computer vision technology and high speed machine learning to keep the camera focused on a subject of interest while the drone operator flies the drone. It allows professional filmmakers to easily and affordably go beyond the reach of the human operator, while capturing the perfect shot the first time, every time. With young, creative and ambitious entrepreneurs such as the team from Perceptiv Labs in this exciting new space, the sky’s the limit!
