Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Drones could solve editorial issues, but they also cause a lot of ethical or legal problems that will need to be addressed. What flying autorisation is required? What new privacy issues arise because small and silent drones fly over unaccessible areas and private property shooting high quality video? What would be the cost of replacing a helicopter fleet by drones? Are they powerful and effective enough to provide regular aerial photography and videography? This session will give media leaders insight about the possibilities offered by unmanned aerial vehicles, clear examples to guide future investments and strategy, and journalistic issues that newsrooms need consider about their use.

Panel discussion.
