Hear audio from a new perspective

UAVs have opened up new visual perspectives in TV and film, allowing new angles and access traditional cameras couldn’t achieve.

Now you can give your sound crew the same flexibility. They can use their UAV to capture audio directly during a scene, follow an interviewer with a one-way record, or hold two-way conversations from a remote vantage point.

UAVs significantly extend your reach, getting in close to the action, well beyond the range of shotgun mics. And adjustable beam-width technology effectively isolates off-axis noise – including noise from the drone itself.  

Unleash creative recording at lower cost

Solutions shaped by real-life use cases and industry requirements. Unlock your creative and production teams to:

  • Capture audio from a safe distance
  • Stream live to your ground station
  • Store raw audio capture in full, for post-processing
  • Simplify walk and talk interviews and on-set conversations

Innovative technology on platforms you already know

We responded to invaluable input from the film and AV community during the development of this technology. Our UAV audio microphone combines an array of small microphones to create a unique variable-width beam able to focus on an isolated subject, or listen across a broad area. When combined with our speaker you can have two-way conversations.

Purpose-built for UAVs, our audio sensor has the lowest possible weight and power consumption, minimizing its impact on endurance.

Quieter and safer for creative close-ups

Current UAVs can mount sophisticated cameras and lenses for video and zoom capability. Great for panoramic shots and considerably less expensive than setting up traditional booms and trolleys. But they can run into a whole range of physical and legal restrictions on noise when they get near to people and animals. Dotterel’s shrouds and quiet propellers substantially reduce drone noise. Our innovative technology also improves safety across the board.
