Facebook announced a new system that will allow users to stream live video from any device on their the social media platform... even drones! DJI showed off Facebook Live video using its aerial platform Phantom 4 at Facebook’s annual F8 developer conference.
“DJI’s Phantom 4 is the premier aerial solution for video and other imaging needs, and we are pleased that our partnership with Facebook allowed its developers to experience some of the capabilities of our flagship consumer drone,” said Michael Perry, director of strategic partnerships at DJI. “As Facebook Live expands the reach of exciting live video, DJI’s line of image stabilization and aerial products are the ideal equipment solution to make any video extraordinary.”
The Phantom 4 is DJI’s latest drone that features ActiveTrack technology, a point-and-click system, TapFly technology, and an obstacle-sensing system.
Facebook’s livestreaming feature will be available later this month, and will work for any devices that are controlled by the DJI GO mobile app.
