Washington, USA – When the world’s best golfers converged on the Chambers Bay golf course in Washington state for the 115th US Open, Integrated Microwave Technologies (IMT) saw its microLite HD Transmitter soaring high above the green. Mounted on a UAV, the transmitter helped Helivideo Productions provide unprecedented coverage of the championship tournament for FOX Sports.
Eric Austin, owner and operator of Helivideo Productions, a premier provider of FAA-approved cinematography services for television and film, turned to IMT’s microLite system after previous attempts to achieve UAV shots with other manufacturers’ equipment were unsuccessful.
