Reinforcing their joint commitment to make unmanned aerial vehicles, or drones, a safe and integral part of the broadcasting industry, Stampede (www.stampedeglobal.com) and Unmanned Vehicle University (www.uxvuniversity.com) today announced that are showcasing drone product and education solutions at NAB 2015 in Booth #SU-13704 at the Las Vegas Convention Center.
“Broadcast and reporting methods are rapidly evolving with the introduction of drones to the industry. There is truly no better place to showcase their benefits and uses than at NAB 2015,” Stampede President & COO Kevin Kelly said today. “Stampede and UVU are committed to providing the broadcast industry with state-of-the-art products and an approved certification program that teaches people how to use drones in a safe and sanctioned way.”
Stampede is displaying an array of drones from leading manufacturers like DJI, Walkera, AEE, and xFold. “We’re showcasing a range of drones that cover every possible broadcast application,” Kelly emphasized. “No other company demonstrates the business opportunities offered by drones the way we are.”
Additionally, Unmanned Vehicle University, the first University in the world licensed to grant Doctorate and Masters Degrees in Unmanned (Air, Ground, Sea, and Space) Systems Engineering, is joining Stampede in the Stampede NAB booth to highlight the importance of UAV certifications. “Drones are revolutionizing the way that broadcasters news gather and produce media footage,” Unmanned Vehicle University Provost John Minor said today. “The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) is working hard to establish the guidelines under which drones can be used in these commercial applications. The one thing they have already made very clear is that properly certified training and education is mandatory. That’s where Unmanned Vehicle University comes in.”
What’s more, simultaneous with the weeklong NAB conference and exhibition, Unmanned Vehicle University will be hosting a three-day seminar on the Fundamentals of Drones at the Westgate Resort & Casino located adjacent to the Las Vegas Convention Center from April 17-19. Registration and information for this seminar can be found at http://www.uxvuniversity.com/live-uav-seminars.
For $1,999, participants will receive a comprehensive introduction to one of the fastest growing career opportunities in the world. According to Minor, UAVs are predicted to create 70,000 high paying careers over the next several years at salaries that range from $90,000 to more than $200,000.
