Live AirShip Media coverage for TV News, Traffic Watch,
Motion Pictures,
Sports & Special events.
     SkyWitness and SkyWitness News has just been aquired by Media Sensation, Inc., providing LIVE aerial broadcasts from airships and helicopters of traffic reports, police surveilance, high speed chases, and MORE! Media Sensation, Inc. is now also granting licensing to television stations to use the phrase "SkyWitness" and "SkyWitness News" on their broadcasts.
The SkyWitness News airship is ideally suited to the role of an aerial TV camera platform owing to its ability to remain airborne for long periods and its high degree of maneuverability and low noise level. The SkyWitness News airship is certified to carry the state of the art Wescam range of gyrostabilised broadcast cameras. These cameras are situated at the front of the Lightship giving 360 degree field of view. The round camera dome is seen here in the photo mounted on the smaller A-60+ model airship. The camera is operated by remote control from within the gondola and the pictures are transmitted via a microwave downlink to a receiver on the ground for live broadcasts, or recorded for later transmission.
The SkyWitness News style airship has been used extensively by broadcasters in the USA and EUROPE for live coverage of important events such as Formula 1 Grand Prix, US Tennis Open, Golfing tournaments, the 1992 Barcelona Olympics, the Grand Opening of Euro-Disney, the Tall Ships Race, the Lillehammer Winter Olympics, the NFL, Major League Baseball, NASCAR and Indycar.
Advertisers benefit from the ability of the SkyWitness News airship to act as a camera platform by receiving ground to air shots of the Lightship carrying their banners. The ground to air shots are an integral part of the broadcast program and therefore achieve the same audience levels. The advertiser also, of course, will be seen by the entire audience at a sporting event. It is very difficult to be ignored when your logo is floating above the audience.

     Notable companies that have already used SkyWitness style airships for advertising and promotion are: Coca Cola, Kraft General Foods, McDonalds, Reebok, Virgin Atlantic, Mazda, NBC TV, Blockbuster Video and Budweiser. 

     It is documented that Fuji Film flew its 'Fuji' airship for a nine month tour of the West coast of America during which its market share rose from 7% to 22% and that during the first six months of a one year campaign, Konica received media coverage estimated at $3.4 million in addition to the advertising impact. 

     When Kraft General Foods mounted an aggressive in-store promotion campaign in Germany 1992, they utilized a Lightship to spearhead the campaign, with the dramatic results of a cost to return ratio of 1:8 in increased sales. Kraft General Foods renewed the promotion for the following 2 years. 

     An airship is capable of being utilized in many ways, whether it is to spearhead a product launch or for regional roll-outs or test marketing. Perhaps one of its main assets is its ability to position an advertising site bigger than a billboard supersite where traditional advertising sites are not allowed i.e., over freeways, railways, main arterial routes, urban areas and outdoor events.

     Through this ability to position the airship effective targeting of the required audience can be carried out.
