The Aerial Tools
PSA is the leader in low altitude imaging in the northwest for two simple reasons. Quality and systems versatility. Depending on project scope and location, we select from a broad range of proven options. Helicopters, drones and airplanes. Oh my! And we know how to get creative. Tethered blimps, adjacent buildings, cranes, ladders or any other conceivable method of gaining altitude. We are experts at selecting the proper, safe and most effective option for your project site. While we are among the pioneering community of aerial drone system operations, there are considerable limitations to any one system. Bottom line? PSA utilizes the right tool for the job. From cutting edge gyro stabilization via helicopter to state-of-the-art, cinema quality drone systems, we pride ourselves in versatility.
This will continue to evolve every 6 months. Currently, we prefer the image & color results from Canon's 5D MK IV and Canon C300. The Panasonic GH5(4K) and numerous professional offerings from Blackmagic, Atomos and Sony also join the list. Our latest aerial camera system is the new X7 DNG Raw from DJI. The ability to capture footage in 4K/6K raw file form allows for ideal color correction and professional compositing & animation.
With over 30 years of imaging production experience, the PSA studios & workstations are, and will always be, state-of-the-art. From our NEC PA301W displays and our fully loaded 12-core Solid State Mac Pros to all the latest professional FCPX & Davinci Resolve NLEs, software & plugins, we will always maintain proper advantage in post production.
