About - PilotsEYE.tv
PilotsEYE.tv captures the “Fascination of Flight” from a pilot’s point of view –
in unprecedented quality. A groundbreaking HD recording technique, specifically developed for PilotsEYE.tv productions, guarantees a true-to-life experience. The equipment is composed of up to ten HD cameras and eight microphones, installed directly into the cockpit. The PilotsEYE.tv documentary series won the WorldMediaFestival “intermedia-globe” in 2009.
PilotsEYE.tv is made for anyone and everyone, air traveler or aviation enthusiast, eager for a chance to experience an airline flight first-hand from the “best seat on the plane” – through the “pilot’s eye” in the cockpit itself.
PilotsEye.tv episodes only show the most interesting and most beautiful moments of each journey, a compelling mix of information and entertainment. The pilots themselves provide explanations and technical commentary, while also letting the audience share in more private conversations, often filled with pride and passion for the art of flying, smoothly transitioning from military precision during flight operations to friendly talks, jokes and laughs – and even lunch – in their “off-time”.
Conversational segments alternate with breathtaking views out of the enormous cockpit windows accompanied by soothing musical compositions. Amongst other information, additional explanations full of technical details directly from the crew are included as bonus material for the dedicated aviation enthusiast. See for yourself!
AignerMEDIA GmbH specializes in synchronized multi-camera recording in HD.
With a focus on digital recording in hard to access places, AignerMEDIA strives to bring the “Fascination of Flight” to audiences everywhere. On May 1, 2007, they were the first ever to broadcast a LIVE-STREAM in HD from the cockpit to the cabin in a unique, one-of-its-kind installation. Using constantly evolving technology and equipment to keep pace with cutting edge industry developments, AignerMEDIA continues to set new standards in aviation film-making.
The GPS data recorded by GARMIN navigational systems serves as the basis for the individual flight path visualizations using GOOGLE EARTH. All flight maps and way-point presentations were created using electronic maps by LIDO/LH-Systems. Post-production was done on AVID MC/Symphony with the support of DVE-X.
