September 5, 2018, InterDrone (Las Vegas, USA) — Parrot, the leading European drone group, today announces ANAFI Work, a 4K ultra-compact drone solution for construction professionals, independent contractors, video producers, and more.
Launched with the promise that “it’s not about the drone,” but instead about overcoming business challenges, ANAFI Work is a highly capable business solution, featuring the highly acclaimed ANAFI drone (launched in June 2018).
“With ANAFI Work, we are bringing an easy-to-use yet advanced flying imaging system to the professional market,” said Gilles Labossière, the Executive Vice President and COO of Parrot Group. “With this compact, high-performance 4K drone in their toolkit, professionals can gain a very real efficiency and safety boost, achieving accurate aerial insights with ease.”
This foldable, lightweight solution is ideal for construction monitoring, surveillance, public safety and video production tasks.
Advanced Imaging System
Capture 4K data from the sky
ANAFI Work features a 4K HDR video, 21 MP high-resolution camera. The camera’s three-axis stabilization system allows the drone to shoot ultra-smooth videos and take steady photos. It also features a controllable +/-90° tilt camera, unique on the market, allowing professionals to inspect under structures such as balconies or bridges with the Zenith view (+90°) and roofs with the Nadir view (-90°).
ANAFI Work’s camera is also equipped with a lossless zoom of 1.4x in 4K, 2.8x in full HD (1080p), and up to 3x standard digital zoom, allowing professionals to get a closer look at issues, when required, without reducing footage quality, and all while staying a safe distance away from walls.
Performance On The Go
Always ready to deploy
ANAFI Work boasts industry-leading flight performance, with a 25-minute flight time per battery (four batteries are included). The drone is ultra-compact, weighing in at 320 g (0.7 lb), and its four arms can fold and unfold in less than three seconds, making it ready to use for busy professionals.
It also features a USB-C charging system, which charges 70% faster than standard USB-A, and enables the drone to be charged on-the-go with smartphones, laptops or power banks.
Thanks to its powerful yet quiet propulsion system, ANAFI Work can fly in wind of up to 50 km (31 mi) per hour, plus its omnidirectional transmission system always maintains a strong radio connection, thanks to four dual band antennas embedded in the drone.
With ANAFI Work, every professional can fly manually and take images of all types of infrastructure using the intuitive FreeFlight 6 mobile app. Flying autonomously meanwhile, and acquiring precise data, is made easy with the app’s pre-integrated piloting modes: Touch&Fly, POI (Point of Interest), and Flight Plan.
Missions are also made stress-free due to the drone’s Geofence and Smart RTH (Return to Home) functionalities: Geofence allows the operator to define a specific flight zone with a maximum height and maximum distance, making sure the drone stays in the defined mission area, while with Smart RTH, ANAFI Work is always able to return to its initial take-off position with the single push of a button.
