of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) and drones, DJI, has announced a strategic partnership with data storage company
, Seagate, to solve the data demands of UAV users.
“DJI is proud to pioneer advances in drone technology, and we are excited to work with Seagate on developing innovative ways to manage the increased data flows generated by our most sophisticated products,” said Michael Perry, Director of Strategic Partnerships, DJI.
“Our unparalleled UAV expertise and Seagate’s deep data prowess mean our customers can look forward to smart, efficient and reliable ways to manage their growing drone data storage needs,” he added.
Both the companies are focusing to store, manage, download and share hundreds of gigabytes of data that are generated from a single drone mission. DJI claims that advanced UAVs are these days capturing videos in 5.2K resolution. The quality of video creates a huge amount of data, for example shooting in 5.2K during a 25-minute flight can generate about 120GB of data. Higher resolution cameras drive the need for more efficient solutions for UAV users to offload, playback, share and backup their footage. With this partnership DJI and Seagate are actively working together to simplify every step of UAV data workflows
Tim Bucher, Senior Vice President, Seagate Consumer Solutions stated that the company is honored to partner with DJI to help UAV users tackle their evolving and unique data needs.
“Seagate is committed to working together with DJI to evolve UAV workflows so users can focus on what matters most – capturing data in flight to bring new and amazing experiences to the world,” he added.
The companies intend to announce their first product collaboration later this year.
