Panasonic Marketing Middle East and Africa (PMMAF) has unveiled its all-in-one hybrid drone Ballooncam at GITEX Technology Week.

The drone is completely wrapped inside of the large balloon and is powered by four propellers, allowing the Ballooncam to fly close to and above the audience around event venues. The Ballooncam is also embedded with a projector and LEDs allowing it to display messages, images and signage, plus it can be used for a long duration as it uses the buoyancy of the large balloon and saves energy whilst in flight.

Yasuo Yamasaki, director and division head, System Solutions and Communications Division, PMMAF, says: “Panasonic has developed the Ballooncam, a prototype drone system which is a union of mobility, imaging and our display solution. This product will bring about a 360-degree change in how we watch spectator sports that will captivate audience and bring a whole new dimension to sports, musical or any mega events at large stadiums.”

He adds: “We will continue to endeavour the opportunity of offering the latest technologies and to realise our commitment towards providing customers with solutions that meet and exceed their expectations.”
