Once again L.A. Drones is back at the Bellagio, paving the way of live broadcast drones and possessing the rare Class B airspace waiver. Working directly with the NHL, for the Stanley Cup Finals on NBC (the NHL Finals Live Broadcast), L.A. Drones shot not just the opening piece to the live broadcast, but created aerial cinematography footage throughout the show. This was done by having multiple Live drones, and providing a live broadcast feed to the NBC production truck via fiber optic cables. With Panic! At The Disco performing before puck drop at 8pm EST, it made for an amazing live show!
With the constant motion of the band and having to navigate around the fountains at the Bellagio Resort and Casino on The Strip, the NHL Finals opening show is just one example of the types of high-proximity, high-risk live broadcast flights that are handled regularly by L.A. Drones‘ team, with some of the best pilots in the world. Toting a $5 Million insurance policy, L.A. Drones continues to be the go-to drone provider for the major sports leagues (NBA, NFL, NHL, SCGA, MLB, and more.)
