We currently recommend and stock three different hardware options to use with our NewsSpotter video and audio solution.

These hardware options include our own FlyAway system which was developed and tested with the help of the BBC and other broadcasters over the past two years. FlyAway uses military grade, machine alloyed, materials for enhanced durability wherever it is needed, either on set or within the field. It comes in a sturdy flight case for safe transportation, can be deployed within 15 minutes, without the requirement for specific assembly tools, and comes with a 12 month guarantee for added peace of mind.

View the full range of NewsSpotter compatible hardware options below and see how our robust FlyAway solution compares.
