Bordeaux & Kuala Lumpur, August 21st, 2017
Dronisos (previously BeTomorrow Drones) is proud to announce its participation in the 29th Southeast Asian Games opening ceremony that took place in Kuala Lumpur on August 19th in front of ninety-thousand sports fans at the Bukit Jalil National stadium.
The opening ceremony of this Southeast Asian multi-sport event kicked off on Saturday night with a stunning light show and showcase of Malaysia’s culture that could be followed live on various TV channels all over Asia and on the internet.
Dronisos has developed a new system for outdoor drone shows which uses the night sky as a 3D screen. With hundreds of 3D pixels, this system can be used to display artistic content, logos, flags, countdowns, words, etc in the sky. For this occasion, Dronisos provided the Southeast Asian Games with a 100-drone ‘firefly’ show within the overall choreography orchestrated by Co director Jean Luc Sage.
In its first public outing the system excelled in this extremely challenging environment – with the drones having to fly live through a maze of wires (Spidercam, mascot flying system) all live on TV and in front of 90.000 spectators. This world-premiere was made possible by Dronisos using its favorite drone Parrot Bebop 2.
“From start to finish, working with the Dronisos team was a great experience. The project could not have been more challenging: we had to contend with a full stadium; extreme limitations on space both on the ground and in the air; busy radio networks as you would expect around such a live performance; and to make matters worse - monsoon rains, even lightning storms right up to the moment of the performance!! Yet through the many days and nights leading up the show, the team remained unflappable. This is a team that is used to live performances under pressure - and it showed. This live stadium show was a world-first and we couldn’t have been happier with the end result.”
Said Abdullah Ismail, Memories Managing Director
“We are so proud to have been able to play a part in such an amazing occasion. Mixing culture, sports, arts and poetic sensitivity and combining them with innovation and technology, the SEA Games opening ceremony was a great success. It’s been an honour for us to fly our drones as an opening to this awesome show. “ said Jean Meillon, CEO of Dronisos.
