We’ll talk new technology tools – Drones, DLSRs and 4K. Close to half million people have registered with the FAA’s new drone registry since it went live late last year. Livestreaming by drones?

How are consumers and content creators creating media in 4K and beyond? What new DLSRs and other equipment are available to generate new and interesting content at your media center?
