About - PilotsEYE.tv
With up to ten HD/UHD cameras and eight microphones installed directly in the cockpit, each episode guarantees a real-life experience. The revolutionary documentary series won the World Media Festival “intermedia-globe” in 2009 and has been broadcast, amongst other channels, on pay-tv channel “planet” (SKY).
PilotsEYE.tv is made for aeronauts, aviation enthusiasts, and everyone eager for a chance to admire an airline flight from the cockpit itself.
In a compelling mix of information and entertainment, the episodes show the most interesting, fascinating, and beautiful moments of each journey, accompanied by the pilots’ explanations of technical aspects and the current events on screen. The episodes refrain entirely from the use of voice-overs, resulting in particularly dense pacing. Small anecdotes of a pilot’s passion for flying alternate with information segments and breathtaking views from the large cockpit windows set to music.
In addition to the main audio track, a secondary commentary track gives further explanations of the filmed events by the flight’s pilots, offering even deeper insight into the fascination of this profession.
AignerMEDIA specializes in synchronized multi-camera recording in HD/UHD.
With a focus on multicamera aviation recording, 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 define new approaches to 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.
