Better News Gathering Operation on its Way
CNN step into the technology by using unmanned Ariel vehicle for collecting news. The cable news network has engaged aerial vehicles to cover recent key stories like the floods that desolated Louisiana and Flint, Michigan water crisis.
Innovative Step By CNN
But now CNN wants to take a step forward on the technology resource by launching its latest initiative, CNN Air, or CNN Aerial Imagery and Reporting for not-short. This operation seems pretty lean as it actually sounds because two full-time UAV pilots need to be employed to gather the aerial footage for various platforms of the networks with other Turner and Time Warner-owned offerings.
According to the press release, Greg Agvent, Senior Director of National Newsgathering Technology is running the department, and will be operated in affiliation with Georgia Tech Research Institute. The FAA serves up data as a part of the Pathfinders program of the government agency that is analyzing the entire connotations of drone-based news collecting.
