Elevated Imaging Systems (EIS) was established in August 2014 for the purpose of providing cost-effective and efficient aerial imaging services at short notice to businesses and individuals. Using a selection of sub-20kg Remotely Piloted Aircraft (RPAs), we can operate in congested areas and respond quickly to clients' requirements without the need for the job-specific CAA approvals required for heavier UAVs.
EIS is equipped to record up to 6K ProRes Raw and CinemaDNG stabilised cinema quality video and aerial photography to meet a broad range of business and personal requirements. These include building and site surveys, wedding photography, advertising and promotion work, sporting events and many more.
Using state-of-the-art Remotely Piloted Aerial Systems (RPAS), operated by Qualified (RPQ-s) CAA-approved pilots, EIS is equipped to readily provide high quality aerial imaging services, both inside and outside of controlled airspace to altitudes of up to 400 feet above ground level and up to 500m away from the take-off location.
Based in Belfast, Northern Ireland, Elevated Imaging Systems is licensed, insured and approved by the UK Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) to provide aerial filming and photographic services with Permissions for Commercial Operations (PfCO). Specialists in aerial media production, our pilots are RPQ-s qualified and adhere strictly to our CAA approved EIS Operations Manual's systems and procedures to ensure at all times the safety of the crew, public, buildings and equipment.
Until recently, professional quality aerial video was out of reach to all but large news and movie-making corporations that could afford to run or hire helicopters.
More recently, unmanned aircraft, mostly heavy lift hexacopter and octocopters have been used to put RED, Backmagic and Canon video or still cameras into the air. These machines come in all shapes and sizes but almost all are complex, heavy, have limited endurance (flight time) and are still expensive to run. Coming in at weights in excess of 7kg, these systems require special permissions to operate in congested or built-up areas.
Our lightweight (1.5 to 4kg) aerial platforms feature incredibly stable 3-axis gimbals and sharp, powerful DJI-designed cameras, as well as real-time video downlinks that enable our operators and clients to view live data as flights are underway. These and other advanced on-board technologies, coupled with the ability to fly for 20 to 25 minutes on a single charge. enable us to create the perfect stills and video for a wide range of commercial and business applications.
DJI INSPIRE 2 QUADCOPTER
The DJI Inspire 2 has been designed to create the perfect integrated professional flying platform for aerial photography. This single or dual operator system is matched with our X4s, X5s or X7 cameras to produce up to 6K Raw video and 24 megapixel still images. The combination of high performance brushless motors, highly efficient carbon fibre propellers, retractable landing gear and up to 20 minutes flight time per charge, enables the DJI Inspire 2 to meet the demanding standards required by cinematographers, making it both cost effective and environmentally friendly.
ZENMUSE X7 CAMERA & GIMBAL
This exciting new camera for the DJI Inspire 2 features a 24 megapixel sensor, interchangeable lens capability, remote focus and aperture adjustment, 16 Megapixel stills and up to 6K ProRes or CinemaDNG Raw video recording
PHANTOM 4 Pro
The Phantom 4 Pro, introduced earlier this year dramatically improves on the capabilities offered by its predecessors in the Phantom range. Featuring an improved more robust gimbal, compete with a 1" 4k 20megapixel camera, this drone has proven an excellent tool for the production of high quality orthomosaics and well as 100mbps 4K video and highly detailed still images.. The P4 Pro also features an extensive selection of ultrasonic and optical collision avoidance sensors, enabling use in more confined spaces than before. Also improved are battery life and aerodynamics enabling more time in the air and making this an ideal piece of equipment for use across a wide range of professional survey and TV filming applications.
