Kelmarsh Hall 360 degree tour

[popuppress id=”676″]
Aerial virtual tour of Kelmarsh Hall. Graymatter Media is certified by the CAA (Civil Aviation Authority) for aerial work with a drone. By positioning the drone, or UAV (Unmanned Aerial Vehicle), or UAS (Unmanned Aerial System), and then taking a series of still images, Graymatter Media can produce a 360 degree virtual tour of the location.

In addition to amazing aerial photography and video, Graymatter Media can also provide 360 degree aerial virtual tours.

Aerial virtual tours are made possible by the drone’s ability to hover in a fixed position. The drone, or UAV (Unmanned Aerial Vehicle), uses GPS (Global Positioning Satellites) to control its position. Once in position the camera can be rotated to take a series of images which are then made into the virtual tour.

The tour can have icons added which can be clicked to display other information in the form of videos or pictures. And many tours can be linked together so the viewer can virtually travel around the tour.

Aerial video and aerial photography by drone, or UAV (Unmanned Aerial Vehicle), or SUA (Small Unmanned Aircraft), puts the camera at a view point often unreachable by any other means, and certainly at a fraction of the cost of using full size aircraft even it were possible to use one.

The drone can be flown up to 400 feet above ground level and has the option of allowing a second operator to take control of the camera position for exact framing while the pilot positions the aircraft. GPS (Global Positioning System) satellites are used to maintain the aircraft’s position and affect safety systems in the event of loss of signal, where by the aircraft will automatically return to the take-off point and land.

The platform operated by Graymatter Media is in the 7kg and under category which allows for less restricted operation compared to larger aircraft, whilst still allowing individual flight times of up to 18 minutes.

The camera can record video at 4k at 24/25 fps (frames per second), and 1080p HD at 24-60 fps. While the three-axis gimbal isolates the camera from the drone’s movements to provide smooth, vibration-free, footage.

Graymatter Media is fully certified by the CAA (Civil Aviation Authority) to operate a drone for aerial photography and video. The PfAW (Permission for Aerial Work) granted allows Graymatter Media to fly to 400ft above ground level where the UAV (Unmanned Aerial Vehicle) or drone, can capture stunning video at 1080P and 4k.

Aerial Photography

Graymatter Media Limited is fully certified by the CAA (Civil Aviation Authority) to provide aerial photography and aerial video capture using a drone. The drone or UAV (Unmanned Aerial Vehicle) or SUA (Small Unmanned Aircraft) or SUSA (Small Unmanned Surveillance Aircraft) is permitted to fly to 400 feet above ground level and can deliver stunning images and 4k video from an otherwise inaccessible view point. The drone used by Graymatter Media is in the 7kg and under category which gives greater scope for deployment than larger aircraft. And Graymatter’s systems allow a camera operator to control the camera view point and framing separately from the pilot in charge.

To ensure operational safety there are strict regulations controlling the use of drones, and every job and flight is thoroughly investigated to ensure the task can be completed safely and within the restrictions imposed by the CAA PfAW (Permission for Aerial Work).

In addition to creating stunning images and aerial video from a unique view point, the aerial system can also be used for land and building surveying. Whether it is to record ground details prior to development, or to photograph roof damage for insurance claims or inspect chimneys prior to maintenance.
