The show at the Presidential palace in Beirut included 60 drones, all made especially for the occasion.
The drone show, that was launched at the beginning of April 2019, was created by Cotillions Al Arz, a Lebanese entertainment service company. “We are really excited and proud to bring the first ever drone light show in Lebanon,” said David Sayah, COO of The drone show LB by Cotillions Al Arz. He continued, “The show was such an unequivocal success with the public, that now we are certain – there will be many more to follow!”
The 15-minute show was created using Drone Show Software by SPH Engineering – the world’s only widely available software for drone shows. Its features allow the user to create an astonishing drone show step-by-step: from the setup of drone hardware and firmware, the transfer of 3D animation to drone flight paths, to the management of the final performance. It offers a wide choice of drone `dance` moves, smooth movement with up to 2,000 trajectory points on the flight path and solid safety measures, including a double virtual fence.
Show elements. Usually, drones use coloured LED lights for the performance, but they can also be fitted with fireworks, colourful smoke generators and other eye-catching attractions.
Drone Show Software is compatible with many types of drones from a range of different producers. Cotillions Al Arz settled for IFO drones from the San Francisco-based UVify company — a leader within the drone show industry and a strategic partner of Riga-based SPH Engineering.
