Pixis produced several 500 drone shows as part of Super Bowl LVI weekend.
A series of drone shows were held as part of the entertainment program of Super Bowl 2022 - one of the most spectacular and popular events in the United States. Pixis Drones team (USA) together with the Drone Show Software team carried out professional preparatory work in order to delight the audience. The mesmerizing drone shows which were visible all over Los Angeles once again prove that the drone show today is an integral part of any major event and an excellent addition to the entertainment program of world famous happenings bringing the biggest events in the world to the next level. The process of launching the show itself was unique, from the fact that there were three shows in a day, to the fact that a fleet of drones took off from the roof of the well-known Los Angeles Convention Center.
During several days eight 10-minutes drone shows graced the sky of downtown L.A. About 500 drones formed outlines of the Lombardi trophy, the NFL shield and logos of the Rams and Bengals. The drone show became one of the events for locals and tourists ahead of Sunday's game between the Rams and Cincinnati Bengals at SoFi Stadium in Inglewood. Social networks "exploded" with rave reviews from those who managed to see the drone show live!

“The Super Bowl LVI show took six months of planning. From the inception it was important that the story narrative brought out the NFL brand heritage and tied back to the Los Angeles location. We wanted to deliver the best fan experience while magnifying the brand as a technological pioneer. We feel both exhilarated and humbled that it met all these parameters, the fan reaction itself was amazing. Pixis is an industry leader. Without giving too much away we have several initiatives on both a technical and content basis on a global level that will change the industry.
