Garmin’s Virb Elite action camera now integrates with the Garmin Pilot iPad/iPhone app, which can not only control the camera but also displays a live view of the video being recorded by the camera. The integration with Garmin Pilot (version 6.0 or later) is available only with the Virb Elite, not with the regular Virb.
HeliMedia was at Helitech displaying its video mission box (VMB), a portable unit able to transmit live video over more than 100 nm thanks to microwave technology. For example, an Italian operator, Helica, has connected it to a full-HD 1080p camera.
Inside the helicopter, the VMB replaces one seat, using existing mounting points. It is easily transferrable from one aircraft to another, explained Steve Watson, business development manager of the Cheltenham, UK-based company. With two technicians the process takes approximately two hours, he estimated.
