TRACE Live Networks, a Toronto-based drone company, will be integrating US-based Hang w/ livestream services into TRACE devices.

The Hang w/ platform connects people through interactive livestreams, letting them use their mobile phones or desktop to broadcast live to any potential audience. Consumers using TRACE drones will now be able to broadcast directly onto the Hang w/ platform.

“The uses for this technological mashup are astounding,” said Andrew Maltin, Hang w/ CEO. “From surfers to hikers to soccer players to parents who want to keep an eye on their kids in the backyard — we are ushering in a new age of live-streaming connectivity and I know our users are going to love it.”

Drone users will be able to livestream to the Hang w/ platform using a number of products, including The TRACE FLYr, an auto-follow drone designed for aerial video capture, and TRACE’s FOLLOWr, a 360-degree rotating tripod gimbal. Other TRACE auto-follow devices in development include a rugged ATV style car for ground-based capture as well as a submersible for underwater video creation.

“TRACE is positioning to take live-streamed content creation to an entirely new level through allowing users to be fully in the moment as their action is captured and live-streamed completely autonomously,” said Cameron Chell, Co-founder of TRACE. “We chose Hang w/ as one of our partners because of their powerful live broadcasting tools and extensive network of users who will now be able to Hang with each other in a whole new way.”
