The world's fastest consumer drone can record 4K video at 85 miles per hour

The world's fastest consumer drone can record 4K video at 85 miles per hour George Matus was 11 years old when he flew his first drone. "I was immediately hooked," the young man tells me with a grin. By age 16 he was competing as a professional drone racer and acting as a test pilot for new aircraft. Now 18, he recently finished high school but decided to defer college, opting instead to pursue a fellowship offer from tech billionaire Peter Thiel. He used that money to start his own company, Tealwhich today is launching its first product, a consumer facing drone that a beginner can easily fly with an iPhone to capture 4K video. The difference between Teal's first drone and the competition is that this unit can also perform like a racecar, reaching speeds of 85 miles per hour while flipping, diving, and performing barrel rolls.

4K Opinions & Interviews

Panasonic Talks 4K Lineup with a Number of 4K Cameras on Show for the First Time in Europe at IBC

Interview Image

Nela Pertl, Marketing Manager EMEA at Panasonic, talks Video over IP, 4K and more at IBC 2016.

Q What are some upcoming/popular trends from the world of broadcast and content creation that you think might make a big impact at the show?

A Alongside IP, 4K is still a huge talking point and every manufacturer is updating their camera, switching and recording equipment to accommodate the super-high resolution format, which will only speed up adoption across the industry. At Panasonic our 4K range is going beyond the traditional production cameras and in to other formats, such as studio and remote cameras. The increasing capability of network connections and processing power has meant Video over IP is becoming a crucial part of many news workflows. Again this has seen manufacturers updating their hardware to add IP capabilities, and Panasonic is fully committed to seeing out the full transition to VOIP over the next few years.

Exclusive Interview: Production Designer Hannah Beachler on "Miles Ahead"

Interview Image

If you've seen Beyonce's lemonade, which let's be honest, who hasn't, then you are aware of Hannah Beachler's work as a production designer. She is currently working with director Ryan Coogler for Marvel’s much-anticipated Black Panther and she previously collaborated with Coogler on Creed, the spinoff from the Rocky film series, starring Sylvester Stallone and Michael B. Jordan, as well as Fruitvale Station, 2013's Sundance Film Festival breakout, which won both the Grand Jury and Audience Prize. Hannah talked to ProductionHUB about her film MILES AHEAD, the differences between biological film and fiction film, and breakign into the industry.

Q How different (if at all) is production design for a biographical film vs a fiction film?

A Well I consider Miles Ahead to be factional (fictional and fact) so it mixed the two. There was a lot that was true and a lot that wasn't. It was a mash-up of his memory from many different times in his life, and you can never be quite sure what is real and what isn't. There are little hidden gems everywhere, from characters (that's all I'll say about that) to items that circle back to his real life that are a part of a fictional world in the film. I really can't say, but you have to watch it more than once to catch it. I think the die-hard Miles fans will pick up on it, but it’s truly brilliant stuff, influencing the narrative without the audience really knowing, another Miles thing if you will. It all comes back to his life and his memory during his silent period and how he remembers everything and who is real and who is not. I've said too much. Hahaha!

FUJINON Cabrio Lens Relied on for Live 4K Broadcast of Canada's IHEARTRADIO Much Music Video Awards

FUJINON Cabrio Lens Relied on for Live 4K Broadcast of Canada's IHEARTRADIO Much Music Video Awards Bell Media, one of Canada’s premier multimedia companies, produced a live-to-air UHD broadcast of the iHeartRadio Much Music Video Awards (MMVAs) in downtown Toronto in June, with an extensive set up that included a 4K OB truck from Dome Productions. Along with the 4K truck from Dome, the outdoor event employed two audio mobile trucks from Broadcast Audio Services (BAS) and LiveWire Remote Recorders, an on-site broadcast control room and two audio mixing rooms. Bell Media was set on a wide-angle look but didn’t want the barrel distortion common with 2/3” sensor wide-angle lenses, so they turned to the PL 14-35mm Cabrio lens from the FUJIFILM Optical Devices Division.
