Riga, Latvia – SPH Engineering, a global expert in drone technology development, is thrilled to announce the release of its latest Drone Show Software update, version 4.3. This update introduces cutting-edge features to streamline preflight processes, enhance map visualization and sharing capabilities, and improve operational efficiency for drone professionals worldwide.

Key Features of Drone Show Software 4.3:

New Preflight Summary Window

This innovative feature provides a compact yet comprehensive view of preflight readiness, allowing operators to assess their drone’s status quickly and efficiently. With this addition, users can ensure that all systems behave correctly before takeoff, minimizing potential issues and maximizing flight success.

3D Map Elevation Rendering

Update 4.3 takes mapping and surveying to a new dimension with its 3D map elevation rendering capability. This feature enables users to visualize terrain in unprecedented detail, facilitating more accurate pre-show siting, planning, simulation, and monitoring during the show.

Enhanced Import and Export Client Component Settings

In response to the growing need for customizable and transferable drone configurations, Drone Show Software has introduced the ability to import and export client component settings that prepare all the necessary show configurations such as exact location, altitude fences, and others and share these settings between different computers and pilots. In distributed and large teams, one particularly advantageous aspect is eliminating the need to reconfigure all settings from scratch when installing new versions or reinstalling the current version. Users can now effortlessly transfer settings between different machines running DSS, ensuring consistency and efficiency in operations.

Capability to Export Dance Scene to KML

Operators can now export the georeferenced Dance Scene, including the Dance Area and fences, to KML format. This allows for easy sharing and collaboration, opening up new possibilities for Drone Show providers to produce more creative expression and event planning. Also, KML allows for more convenient map creation when show operators must file flight plans beforehand to obtain permission from local authorities.

"Drone Show Software 4.3 represents a significant milestone for SPH Engineering and our commitment to advancing Drone Show Technologies," said Alexander Levandovskiy, Head of Drone Show Technologies at SPH Engineering. "By listening to our Global Drone Show  Community and constantly innovating, we can provide solutions that meet and exceed the evolving needs of drone show providers. These new features underscore our dedication to improving safety, efficiency, and creativity in the industry."

The 4.3 update is available now for all users of Drone Show Software. Users can upgrade to the latest version to use the new features. In contrast, new customers are invited to discover how Drone Show Technologies can transform the entertainment industry with innovative shows.
