DJI and Advanced Media recently concluded the DJI Professional Aerial Workshop on April 28th at the GEMS First Point School in Dubai.

The workshop was held in collaboration with the SANAD Academy, the UAE’s first RPA (Remotely Piloted Aircraft) training and certification specialists endorsed by the Dubai Civil Aviation Authority. Attended by over 100 enthusiasts, industry professionals and professional filmmakers, the Workshop gave a comprehensive overview of the recently launched Inspire 2, the latest offering from DJI targeted at filmmakers.

“Filmmakers are utilizing drones more and more, so it’s important that we offer a hands-on demonstration on the subject. We also see a number of factors, including regulatory changes, technology advancements and filmmaking nuances, are converging to drive rapid, unprecedented growth in the unmanned aerial vehicle industry.

At the Workshop, we gathered product specialists, representatives from SANAD and award winning filmmakers, who shared real-world experiences and professional insights to creating inspiring and unique content,” said Pejman Ghorbani, senior product manager, Advanced Media.

Award-winning director, producer and cinematographer, Kirill Kripak also shared his experiences of storytelling using drones, most specifically DJI’s Inspire 2. Speaking at the workshop, Kripak said: ““The range of movement a drone can get is unmatched by any other camera movement device that exists and these devices can also reach and go into places people can’t get to. The videos shot on drones certainly have a signature look and feel – something no other imaging device can achieve.”

The Inspire 2 offers powerful capabilities and is easy to operate. The nimble new magnesium-aluminum alloy body increases stiffness while lowering weight. It has a top speed of 67 mph and takes only 4 seconds to accelerate to 50 mph. With the new dual battery system, flight time is up to 27 minutes. A new forward-facing camera offers the pilot the best flight view for operating the master controller, while the camera operator receives a separate feed from the professional Zenmuse camera mounted on the main gimbal. The Inspire 2 supports the brand-new Zenmuse X4S and X5S cameras and will support additional cameras in the future.
