The Quicklink HEVC Midi Backpack has been used recently to demonstrate high-quality H.265/HEVC aerial footage with the Parrot Bebop drone at the Paris Air Show in France.
The 51st show took place at the Le Bourget Parc des Expositions from 15 to 21 June 2015, and brought together all the players in this global industry around the latest technological innovations.
The Parrot Bebop drone was demonstrated to show its capability of broadcasting live high definition video. The video was encoded with the H.265 / HEVC Midi Backpack, transmitted via the Inmarsat BGAN HDR service. The video and audio output was then decoded by the Quicklink standard playout server solution.
This demonstration successfully showed the unique and high quality footage that can be transmitted in aerial situations.

“Our 400 grams Bebop drone embedding a digitally stabilized HD camera was showing amazing live footage during this air show. This was made possible thanks to the efficient Quicklink HEVC encoding/decoding solution, key technology to keep high quality video while using such low bitrate connection”

said Yannick Levy, VP corporate business development at Parrot
