Designed and built from the ground up, our autonomous drones turn live events into unforgettable experiences.

Designed and built from the ground up, our autonomous drones turn live events into unforgettable experiences.

The Lucie® micro drone

The Lucie micro drone is our flagship offering and delivers vast creative freedom. Each autonomous Lucie micro drone is equipped with a RGBW light. When precisely choreographed, the Lucie micro drones form a cluster of flying lights, and together, their smooth, intricate motions work in harmony to produce captivating results. The versatility of the Lucie micro drones means you can achieve a variety of different effects. Fly only a few for an intimate scene with performers on stage. Or fill the air above the stage with a swarm of glittering fireflies for a more immersive experience.

TECHNOLOGY YOU CAN TRUST

Weighing only 50g (1.8oz), the Lucie micro drone can perform above artists without any safety concerns. Optimized for permanent installations and touring productions, they are ultra-safe, reliable, and easy to use. 

Technical specifications.

Weight: 50g (1.8oz)
Flight time: up to 3 minutes
Charging time: approximately 1 hour
Equipped with high–intensity, pre-programmable RGBW lights

Indoor positioning system.

The system consists of Kedge™ localization units that reliably define the boundaries of the flight space and allows for maximum creativity. This allows our drones to perform their choreography without cameras, carpets or other limitations. Robust and reliable, it has operated in a wide variety of venues and conditions, including on ice, in a desert and even next to flame throwers.

Lucie® charging station.

To house the Lucie micro drones before their performance, we provide charging station racks. Each rack hosts up to 40 Lucie micro drones and is an all-in-one charging, storage, and transportation solution.

Custom Projects

If you want to create something never seen before, we also work on bespoke, custom projects built to your specifications. From custom design, to engineering projects and processes, we’ll work with you to deliver something spectacular.

Costumes

Imagine a stage full of floating jellyfish, flying disco balls or swaying flowers. Our drone costume designers can create bespoke costumes that turn our Lucie® micro drones into flying scenery, props and even creatures. These ultra-light, flight-tested costumes can be used alone, or in tandem with a flying light show to add an extra dimension to your event.

Stage Flyer

The Stage Flyer drones were part of a custom project developed for Cirque du Soleil’s Broadway show Paramour. By design they carried lampshades and became dancing props alongside the performers. But this is just one example. The Stage Flyer drones can also carry payloads including cameras, mirrors or other stage effects, such as confetti, for more dramatic possibilities. For dependable safety, each Stage Flyer drone is designed with our failsafe technology. This means it can land safely even if a battery, motor, connector, propeller or sensor fails.

Lucie In the Sky – ADC

Lucie In the Sky, a groundbreaking collaboration with Australasian Dance Collective, features six human dancers—and five ‘Lucie’ micro drones from Verity Studios. Seamlessly integrated into the performance, Verity's technology creates a nuanced and emotional connection between humans and drones.

What we did

The collaboration between Verity Studios  and Australasian Dance Collective on Lucie in the Sky is the latest example of the innovative indoor drone-show experiences that have made Verity Studios the top choice for show creators worldwide...
 
Creative director Amy Hollingsworth worked closely with our team to create a full-length dance work that combines  human dancers and Lucie micro drones, with each drone demonstrating unique character traits and emotions. The show melded dancers and micro drones to create a work that has coaxed the ‘Pixar effect’ out of anthropomorphic animation and onto the stage. 

Intimacy and connection

The 1-hour show, which opened in Brisbane, Australia, featured 25 minutes of drone choreography. Verity's technology delivered once again, allowing the precise crafting of flight patterns and providing the perfect execution of coordinated flight that allowed the drones to be perfectly choreographed to human movements. The result: a breathtaking display of intimacy and connection between the human and drone characters.

Amy Hollingsworth praised Verity Studios and the company’s Lucie drones."We needed to be able to create the sense of a relationship between the performers, and Verity’s Lucie drones are perfect. Super lightweight, safe and magical." The success of the work relied heavily on the consistency and versatility of the micro drones as well as the magic they created on stage. "It has been a joy to work so closely with Verity's outstanding team of drone choreographers on this project," added Hollingsworth. "The team was incredibly open and collaborative. Verity’s technical team was supportive and gave our production team great confidence in being able to run the system safely and smoothly."

Verity’s Lucie microdrones took the stage for Justin Bieber’s 2022 Justice World tour

What we did

Verity's Lucie microdrones were a standout addition to Justin Bieber's Justice World tour, showcasing the capabilities of Verity’s autonomous indoor drone system for live events. The drones were used in a creative and impactful way, adding a new dimension to the concert experience. For the intro to "Where Are Ü Now," with its iconic dance choreography, the drones were used to match the musical build-up into the song to get the audience hyped for Justin's entrance. The creative director for the tour, Nick DeMoura, praised the drones for their reliability and versatility in an interview with Lighting and Sound America (LSA) where he states, "We use them once in a transition. We create a funnel above a toaster lift, and they light up Justin as he lifts onto the stage. It’s a cool transition for getting him on the stage. For the song Ghost, which is one of Justin’s biggest hits, they’re like little spirits, surrounding him throughout the song and creating some really beautiful looks." A total of 88 drones were used to create these stunning effects.

Reliable and seamlessly integrated

The Verity system was seamlessly integrated onto the stage and with numerous movable LED screens, with the drones taking off from stage lifts at the right moment thanks to the integration with TAIT's Navigator. This level of integration, combined with the reliability of the system, allows for the drones to be used in even the most complex productions. In the LSA interview, Nick DeMoura adds, "the drones are super-reliable. The only time they don’t work, it’s because of human error. I would recommend them forever."

Verity's drones provide creatives with new and interesting effects for shows, and the success of Justin Bieber's Justice World tour is a testament to the positive impact they have on the shows. With a proven track record, having provided drones for world tours of Metallica, Drake, and Celine Dion, Verity is the go-to provider for autonomous indoor drone systems for live events.

Cirque Éloize - GCC Games 2022

Created by Cirque Éloize, the Opening Ceremony of the 2022 GCC Games took the crowd—along with live television and social media audiences around the globe—on a thrilling, immersive journey through the history, culture, and the evolution of sports across the Gulf nations.

What we did

To bring the ceremony to life, Verity drones were used during the opening segment to create organic shapes that served as interactive props for the onstage artists representing young soccer players. 176 Lucie micro drones were then used to spotlight swimming, tennis, cycling, and other sports in a dynamic, high-speed number that kicked off the event.  In the breathtaking final act, the drones created a giant, rotating motion around an aerial Cyr wheel acrobat, then gathered to create one final shot that flew straight to a giant, illuminated bullseye, to end the number with a thunderous bang.

Coordinated drones

“A show of this size and complexity came with many challenges,” says Steve Maassen of Verity Studios who was the lead drone choreographer on the project. “Coordinating such a large number of drones as they transitioned from one formation to another in such a fast-paced show required tight integration with lights, projection mapping, PixMob, and other visual effects. There was no room for error.” Maassen adds, “The choreography with the many acrobats was very elaborate. Every acrobatic action—such as the Cyr wheel going up and down or a human pyramid being built—required the highest level of precision to deliver performances that perfectly coordinated acrobats, effects, and 176 flying Lucies.”

 “Verity Studios proved to be the ideal partner to deliver stunning drone effects that added an entirely new element to Cirque Éloize,” says Jean-Philippe La Couture, Vice president production at Cirque Éloize, “The entire team was extremely knowledgeable and professional, ultimately helping us to create a production that exceeded our already high expectations. Thank you, Verity Studios, for helping make the GCC Games Opening Ceremony a wonderful success!”

Céline Dion - Courage World Tour

As Dion raises her arms, 104 Verity drones rise from the stage, dramatically turning blue and thronging around Dion as the song reaches its crescendo.

Canadian singer Céline Dion has had a career spanning decades. Having sold more than 200 million records worldwide, she is the best-selling Canadian artist and one of the best-selling artists of all time.

The 2019-2020 Courage World Tour is Dion’s first tour since beginning her second concert residency in Las Vegas in 2011. Her biggest hit, “My Heart Will Go On,” was always the highlight of the show, augmented by a waterfall that cascades around her as she sings.

For Dion’s new tour, show designer Yves Aucoin who has worked with her for more than 20 years, wanted to find a similarly impressive effect.

To create this effect, Aucoin contacted Verity Studios to use its micro drones to create an impactful, water-themed choreography for the much-awaited encore of Dion’s show, the song “My Heart Will Go On.” As Dion raises her arms, 104 Verity drones rise from the stage, dramatically turning blue and thronging around Dion as the song reaches its crescendo. In the final strains of the song, the drones hover above Céline before descending to the stage one by one. A single drone sinks towards Dion’s outstretched hands before it lifts away as she raises her hands.

The Effectors - Royal Caribbean

Verity Studios Lucie® micro drones embark on a journey on the high seas, aboard Royal Caribbean's "Odyssey of the Seas" and "Spectrum of the Seas".

The Effectors tells the story of four superheroes with the ability to control show effects like lasers, lights, video, and audio. The superheroes unite their powers to fight the villain Crash who, with his Lucie micro drone minions, tries to take over the world.

Verity’s fourth show with Royal Caribbean, the team was faced with the challenge of bringing its drone shows to a new level of immersive entertainment. To achieve this, Verity developed a choreography that flies out over the audience to illuminate the guests with intense red light.

As villain Crash raises his arms, the drone army rises to the sky and circles him before Crash sends them on their campaign to march out over the audience. As he lowers his arms, the drones sink closer and closer to the audience before breaking into a geometric formation.

VP of Entertainment Nick Weir tweeted, “Drones are a big part of the Royal Caribbean Productions drive. We are continuously developing our drone program. Experimenting/testing new, original and dramatic ways to use this technology, and push its boundaries. For us, it is super important that this exciting visual effect contributes to the narratives in our complex productions.”

Starlight Express 2018 - ongoing

As part of the celebrations for the musical’s 30th year on stage, Starlight Express decided to use 29 Lucie® micro drones in the emotional pinnacle of the show: the Starlight Sequence.

The rock musical Starlight Express tells the story of a child’s toy trains magically coming to life and racing against each other to be crowned the fastest engine in the world. Underdog Rusty ultimately wins the race and the heart of first-class coach Pearl when he is inspired by the legend of the Starlight Express.

As part of the celebrations for the musical’s 30th year on stage, Starlight Express decided to use 29 Lucie® micro drones in the emotional pinnacle of the show: the Starlight Sequence.

Starlight Express press officer Frederika Gerwe said that though she’s seen lots of different types of lighting in shows, the Lucie micro drones were something special. “It was just magical. I’ve never seen something like the drones before. I had goose bumps everywhere.”

“It was quite amazing, because the audience just did not really recognize drones,” said Starlight Express managing director Burkhard Koch. “It was just the magic of the whole scene, which was of course created by the drones flying around.”

In such a quiet and emotional scene, the team at Starlight Express had some concerns about the noise 29 drones could make. However, they quickly realized this would not be an issue. “The most incredible thing was that we expected them to interfere with the sound, but it was not the case at all. It was really nice to integrate them in a musical way,” said Koch.

He was also impressed with the way the creative team, technicians and Verity worked together to create something unique and powerful. “We worked really as a team. We created some completely new things which have never been seen. Getting these classical lighting designs together with this new technology is fantastic,” said Koch.

Drake - Aubrey & the Three Migos Tour

Touring with Drake in 2018 and 2019, Verity Studios’ micro drones light up the stage with flying waves and a drone swarm cloud.

Grammy award-winning Canadian artist Drake is one of the best-selling rappers of the 21st century. Performing to audiences of more than 50,000 people, his previous North American tour broke the record for the highest grossing hip-hop tour of all time. This is a first for the Lucie micro drones, debuting with a rap artist on the back of touring with rock band Metallica and Circus Knie. Grammy award-winning Canadian artist Drake is one of the best-selling rappers of the 21st century.
Touring with Drake from July to November 2018, Verity Studios’ micro drones light up the stage with flying waves and a drone swarm cloud. Elevate, a song on Drake’s new album Scorpion, opens with the micro drones swarming onto the stage to surround Drake in a cloud of lights to the roar of the audience. In another guest appearance, the Lucie micro drones create a glittering wave in the song Look Alive.
Touring across 25 venues in North America, the miniature back-up dancers have made a splash on social media and in the press, with featured stories by Rolling Stone, CNET, and Gizmodo.
Rolling Stone noted that artists are focusing more on creating shareable, iconic moments in their shows. “They’ll remember “Drake’s dancing lights” and associate the display with a one-of-a-kind experience at a specific artist’s show. Shows that are able to visually distinguish themselves from the otherwise-homogeneous slew of other concerts are the ones that stick around in people’s minds.”

Guinness World Record - BT UK

To kick off its new brand campaign, BT (British Telecom) contacted Verity to create a record-breaking drone show based on shapes coded by school children.

In an event starring Jess Glynne and hosted by Tess Daly, drones took off from backstage in the form of hearts, spirals, and butterflies, displaying the shapes the children from St Joseph’s school had coded. Towards the end of the song “I’ll Be There”, the full 160 drones create two intersecting waves before forming a ring around the new BT logo.

“When BT approached us to work with them to achieve this Guinness World Record by flying 160 drones indoors, we weren’t fazed by the tight timeline. This is the first time we’ve collaborated with children and it was a great test for our system to show how flexible it really is. It was a rewarding experience to work on this project, and we are proud to have supported BT in achieving this milestone,” said Verity technical project manager Alex Tintore.

As an integral part of this campaign, BT chose Verity to work on the drone show to ensure it would be a success.

“Verity’s autonomous flying machines have become a standard line item for many high-end productions. Using proprietary technology, Verity’s autonomous drones offer unrivaled safety and reliability within a sophisticated system that can be operated by ordinary client staff.

2047 Apologue 3

The third installment of Zhang Yimou and China Kingway’s concept series, 2047 Apologue, is an exploration of how traditional Chinese performance can be combined with modern technology to impressive effect.

Having previously participated in season 1, Verity was tasked with creating a custom drone ballet for one of the eight performances 2047 Apologue showcased.

“We chose to work with Verity a second time because Verity Studios is a very professional and reliable team. Verity also has the only technology in the world that has drones with minimal noise which is super for stage shows,” said Lulu He, General Production Manager for China Kingway.

Verity worked closely with China Kingway to develop the creative concept; a social commentary on the environmental impact of consumer behavior.
 
“The plastic bag performance talks about pollution. We have a very serious problem in Beijing, China I believe, but it’s also a world problem. People are producing plastics and wasting them, contributing to environmental problems. This is a very serious issue for everyone in the world,” said He.

Floating, twisting and turning around a large tree installed on the stage, the 66 Lucie micro drones were disguised as plastic bags.  Coordinated with a traditional Chinese performer and dancers on stage, the drones disappeared into the background, the lighting cleverly hiding the black drones and highlighting the stark white of the plastic bags. At the crescendo, a cloud of plastic falls from the skies, cleverly navigated by the flying drones.

“My first thought when I saw the plastic bags flying was that it’s completely different. It has a strong impact, and it doesn’t look like any other prop in a stage show. It looks more meaningful. With more than 50 drones and tailored costumes, it will have a very strong impact and look very special,” said He.

CCTV New Year's Gala

With an estimated 1 billion viewers across the globe, the show is the most-watched TV program in the world. In 2019, Chinese lantern drones took flight above 50 dancers and famous singers Sun Nan and Jason Zhang.

The CCTV (China Central Television) New Year’s Gala is the world’s most-watched TV program. This event was broadcast live to an estimated 1 billion viewers across the globe. With 88 Lucie® micro drones flying over performers in red Chinese lantern costumes, this is the largest number of costumed drones ever seen in a performance.
 

Sponsored by TikTok, a leading social media platform in Asia, the show opens to “The Distance of Time”, sung by popular singer Sun Nan and up-and-coming pop star Jason Zhang. As the song builds, 88 Lucie micro drones fly from the back of the stage like butterflies to dance above the 70 performers dressed as blossoming cherry trees.

The Chinese lantern costumes adorning the Lucie micro drones were all designed and produced by the world’s only drone costume designer and Verity employee, Léa Pereyre. Pereyre creates the costume design in CAD software before laser-cutting the materials and assembling the costumes. The drones feature special guards that have pre-defined slots to easily attach costume elements. This concept makes it easy to quickly create large numbers of costumes and transform drones into moving pieces of scenography, props and even characters.

Leading Chinese smart media entertainment company, Keey Media, collaborated with Verity Studios on behalf of the main sponsor TikTok to produce the segment for the 2019 CCTV New Year’s Gala. Wan Li of Keey Media said he was excited to work with Verity to produce this spectacle:

Verity Studios’ Lucie micro drones are featured as part of the on-board entertainment for Princess Cruises’ new ship, the Majestic Princess.

What we did

Princess Cruises launched a new cruise ship in April 2017: the Majestic Princess. Onboard was a world first, a swarm of flying Lucie® micro drones dancing and interacting with a singer onstage. The show drones synchronize their movements and lights to the show’s music and stage effects, which include stage lighting, projections, and stage fog as part of the ship’s show: Fantastic Journey. 

Show director, Danny Teeson, said the choreographed drones were “visually stunning”. “The drones speak for themselves. To have a fantastic singer be elevated amongst choreographed drones – you don’t need anything else. It just transports you for that moment.” 

Cruise ships are challenging environments for many technology installations and this success speaks to the maturity of Verity’s indoor drone show system.

“We told Verity it would be a challenge, but they said ’we can do it’,” said Tracy Andronek, Production Operations Automation, Scenic and Drones.

The Lucie micro drones have now fascinated audiences in over 100 performances, with many more to come. “They were just mesmerized at the drones and you can see people pointing and saying ‘ahhhh’ during the number,” said Andronek.
This is the world’s first autonomous indoor drone swarm performance on a cruise ship.

Circus Knie

Featuring 32 Lucie micro drones performing in unison with acrobats under the enchanting roof of a big top provides feast for the senses.

What we did.

Switzerland’s national circus travels the country each year with its acrobats and menagerie. In the past, Circus Knie toured with elephants, a highlight of the show. But after deciding to retire its elephants to a peaceful life in the Knies Kinderzoo (children’s zoo), Circus Knie needed to replace them with something just as spectacular.

So, Circus Knie decided to add 32 of Lucie® micro drones to the mix. Dancing under the roof of the big-top circus tent, the drones perform alongside the family act, which includes Franco Knie Jr., his wife Linna and son Chris Rui. “This is a world premier for Swiss audiences,” said Franco Knie Jr. “Such an act is unique in a traveling circus.”

With this act, Knie Jr. was excited about combining technology and tradition. "At Circus Knie, we always make sure that we present modern elements in addition to tradition to offer a show for young and old," he said. “In search of components for the modern touch, we soon became aware of Verity Studios’ fantastic drone shows online. After first discussions, we quickly agreed that the drones should become one of the highlights of our 2018 program.”

Based on the feedback from audiences, it was the right decision. “We have received much positive feedback from visitors who appreciate the drone show, especially the interaction between light and music. We also often hear from visitors that they like it because it's something completely new and different in a circus show.”

A traveling circus is a challenging environment, but Knie Jr. said Verity was up to the challenge. “The experts at Verity Studios have responded very well and quickly to the special needs we face in the traveling circus business.”

This is the world’s first autonomous indoor drone swarm to tour with a circus.

Key facts.

• The world’s first autonomous indoor drone show in a touring circus
• Year: 2018
• 10m diameter (44 ft) circular stage
• Performed 7 shows per week for 9 months
• Performed in 38 locations

New York Knicks Pre-Game Show

Verity Studios is making its debut on the American sports scene as a highlight of the New York Knicks season home opener at Madison Square Garden.

Lighting up the sky at Madison Square Garden, Verity’s Lucie® micro drones were some of the most valuable players in the 2017-2018 New York Knicks season.

RSA Conference

The Lucie™ micro drones opened the 2018 RSA Conference in a one-time performance at the Moscone Center in San Francisco.

Opening the 2018 RSA Conference at the Moscone Center in San Francisco, 32 Lucie® micro drones danced in harmony with 3 opera singers.

The micro drones were carefully choreographed to convey the changing emotions of the act. “When the drones first appeared, the song was light and melodic – and the drones were like fireflies and beautiful,” said Sandra Toms from the RSA Conference. “As the song changed to dark and moody, the drones changed to an ominous red color.”

RSA is the world’s leading cyber security conference, so the addition of cutting-edge drone technology ideally complemented the opening act. “When the drones came back, people in the back jumped up and used their phones to video tape what was happening,” said Toms. “It was unexpected, and the audience appreciated the surprise.”

Key facts.

• Year: 2018
• One-time event
• 18.29m x 12.19m (60 ft x 40 ft) flight space

USI Conference

15 Lucie® micro drones in lampshade costumes lit up the Carrousel du Louvre, participating in the 2019 USI Events Conference.

A potent concentration of all things digital, the annual USI conference challenges, explores and questions the future; artificial intelligence, ethics, design, economy, philosophy and neuroscience. As part of this year's USI conference in Paris, Verity's founder and CEO Raffaello D'Andrea gave a presentation titled "Flying Machines" and presented a live drone costume show to the audience. The Lucie micro drones were dressed as lampshades in the French colors. They performed an aerial ballet to the French classic "La Valse d'Amélie".
The drone choreography began with circular motions and swarm-like movements and ended with a depiction of the French flag, flying in the wind. The lampshade costumes adorning the Lucie micro drones were all designed and produced by Verity's Léa Pereyre, the world’s only drone costume designer.

Costumed drones were not the only highlight of the event. The one-hour presentation by D'Andrea covered cutting-edge topics, such as artificial intelligence, social media, cryptocurrencies, and the potential of drones in the industrial space.

"Science is about discovering what the world is about and engineering is about creating what doesn’t exist” explained D’Andrea, when elaborating on his inner drive. "I was interested in how to use knowledge to create things, it’s the real difference between science and engineering. Most people don’t realize there is a difference, but there is a huge difference."

Legitimate interests are, in particular, our interest in being able to carry out our activities and operations permanently, in a user-friendly, secure and reliable manner and to communicate them, the guarantee of information security, protection against abuse, the enforcement of our own legal claims and compliance with applicable law.  You can configure your browser settings so that no cookies are stored on your computer. Complete deactivation of cookies may mean that you cannot use all the functions of our Website. For more information about the Cookies, see our cookie settings in the "Consent Manager".  By continuing to use our Website and/or by agreeing to this Privacy Notice, you consent to cookies being set by us and thus to Personal Data being collected, stored and used, even beyond the end of the browser session as stated above. You can revoke this consent at any time by activating the browser setting to refuse cookies from third-party providers. a) Google Analytics Verity uses the Google Analytics 4 Website analysis service on its Website, which is operated by Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. The cookies used by Google Analytics 4 are stored on your computer and thus enable an analysis of your use of the Website. We use Google Analytics 4 based on our legitimate interests to analyze and regularly improve our Website, as well as to regularly improve our offer via the statistics obtained and to make it more interesting for you. Furthermore, the use of Google Analytics is based on your consent to the tracking of your surfing behavior on our Website and its analytical evaluation.  The information generated by the cookie about your use of this Website is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. These cookies may contain the following information, for example: IP address, number, date and time of the visit, duration of the visit, your access page from which you use the Website (reference URL), the pages visited on our Website, browser type/version and operating system used. Google will use this information on our behalf because we have a legitimate interest in analyzing user behavior so that we can optimize the services offered on our Website and our advertising. Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the Website, compiling reports on Website activity and providing other services relating to Website activity and internet usage. Pseudonymous user profiles can also be created from the Personal Data processed.  In Google Analytics 4, IP addresses are not logged or stored.  You can prevent cookies from being stored by setting your browser software accordingly. However, we would like to point out that in this case you may not be able to use all the functions of this Website to their full extent. You can also prevent the collection of Personal Data (including your IP address) generated by the cookie and relating to your use of the Website by Google, as well as the processing of this Personal Data by Google, by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available at the following link: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de . Alternatively, or within browsers on mobile devices, you can prevent the collection of your Personal Data by Google Analytics by clicking on the following link: Deactivate collection of Personal Data by Google Analytics for this Website. In this case, a special opt-out cookie will be set on your device, which will prevent the future collection of your usage data when visiting this Website. If you delete your saved cookies, you will need to click this link again. For more information on how Google Analytics handles user Personal Data, please see Google's private data protection statement. Furthermore, it may be possible for Google to review the user's use of the Website and possibly combine the Personal Data collected with other information about the user that Google has independently collected from other Websites visited by the user and use it for its own purposes (e.g. to monitor advertising) under its own responsibility based on its own privacy policy. Further information on this and how Google processes the Personal Data can be found in the relevant Google's private data protection statement.  b) Google Maps This Website uses the Google Maps API, a map service provided by Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. This allows us to display interactive maps directly on the Website and enables you to use the map function conveniently.  The legal basis of the processing results from your consent based on your voluntary information for the creation of a map and our legitimate interests in the presentation of our location and an easy location of the place indicated by us on the Website. By using Google Maps, information about the use of our Website, including your IP address, may be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. Google may transfer the information obtained through Google Maps to third parties where required to do so by law, or where such third parties process the information on Google's behalf. Google will not associate your IP address with any other data held by Google. Nevertheless, it would be technically possible for Google to identify at least individual users on the basis of the data received. It would be possible that Personal Data and personality profiles of users of the Website could be processed by Google for other purposes over which we have and can have no influence.   It is possible to deactivate Google Maps and prevent data transfers to Google if you deactivate JavaScript in your browser. However, we would like to point out that in this case you will not be able to use the map display.  For more information on the purpose and scope of data collection and processing by Google, as well as further information on your rights in this regard and settings options for protecting your privacy, please visit: www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy. c) List of Cookies Below is a full list of the cookies we use or will use on this Website, including information about their use and expiry.

9. Social Media Plug-Ins

We use the social plug-ins below on our website in order to make our company better known. The underlying promotional purpose is to be regarded as a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. The responsibility for data protection-compliant operation is to be ensured by their respective providers. Data processing in connection with these plug-ins is carried out with your consent when you use these plug-ins. If you use the services of these social networks independently of or in connection with our website, the social networks evaluate your use of the plug-in. In this case, information about the plug-in is forwarded to the social networks.  a) Facebook Our Website uses plug-ins from the social network Facebook, which is offered by Meta Platforms, Inc. 1601  Willow Road Menlo Park,  CA 94025, USA. The Facebook plug-ins are marked with a Facebook logo or the addition "Like" or "Share". An overview of the Facebook plug-ins and their appearance can be found at: https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins. When you call up a page of our Website that contains such a plug-in, your browser establishes a direct connection to the Facebook servers. The content of the plug-in is transmitted by Facebook directly to your browser and integrated into the page. Through this integration, Facebook receives the information that your browser has called up the corresponding page of our Website, even if you do not have a Facebook profile or are not currently logged in to Facebook. This information (including your IP address) is transmitted by your browser directly to a Facebook server in the USA and stored there. If you are logged in to Facebook, Facebook can directly assign your visit to our Website to your Facebook profile. If you interact with the plug-ins, e.g. by clicking the "Like" button, this information is also transmitted directly to a Facebook server and stored there. The information is also published on your Facebook profile and displayed to your Facebook friends. The purpose and scope of the data collection and the further processing and use of the data by Facebook, as well as your rights in this regard and setting options for protecting your privacy, can be found in Facebook's privacy policy: www.facebook.com/policy.php. b) Instagram Our Website uses the plug-in of the social network Instagram, which is offered by Meta Platforms, Inc., 1601 Willow Road Menlo Park, CA 94025, USA.  The data is only sent to the social media provider when the user activates the social media plug-ins by clicking on the selected plug-in. The user can therefore choose when to activate them. In this case, Meta can establish a direct connection to the user during your visit to the Website, which enables Meta to know the user's visit and to analyze the corresponding information. The further processing of Personal Data is the responsibility of Meta in accordance with data protection laws and the privacy policy published on their website. Please read the privacy statements of your social networks carefully for detailed information about the collection and transfer of Personal Data, your rights, and how you can achieve satisfactory privacy settings. c) Twitter We use the plug-in of the short message network Twitter Inc., 1355 Market St, Suite 900, San Francisco, CA 94103, USA,. You can recognize the Twitter plug-in ("Twitter" button) by the Twitter logo and the addition "Twitter". When you call up a page of our Website that contains such a plug-in, a direct connection is established between your browser and the Twitter server. Twitter thus receives the information that you have visited our site with your IP address. If you click on the Twitter button while you are logged into your Twitter account, you can link the content of our pages on your Twitter profile. This enables Twitter to associate your visit to our Website with your user account.  We would like to point out that we, as the provider of the Website, have no knowledge of the content of the transmitted data or its use by Twitter. Further information on this can be found here: https://twitter.com/de/privacy. d) LinkedIn We use the plug-in of the social network LinkedIn, which is offered by LinkedIn Corporation, 1000 West Maude Avenue Sunnyvale, California 94085, USA,. You can recognize the LinkedIn plug-in ("LinkedIn Recommended" button) by the LinkedIn logo. When you open a page of our Website that contains such a plug-in, a direct connection is established between your browser and the LinkedIn server. LinkedIn thereby receives the information that you have visited our site with your IP address. If you click on the LinkedIn button while you are logged into your LinkedIn account, you can link the content of our pages on your LinkedIn profile. This enables LinkedIn to assign the visit to our pages to your user account. We would like to point out that we, as the provider of the pages, have no knowledge of the content of the transmitted data or its use by LinkedIn. Further information can be found at: https://www.linkedin.com/legal/privacy-policy.

In addition, you have the right to obtain information about which Personal Data we process, to correct it, to supplement it, to restrict it, to object to the processing or to request the deletion of your Personal Data.  Should the processing of Personal Data be based on your consent or our legitimate interests, you may withdraw consent or object to that processing at any time. Moreover, in certain cases, have the right to obtain data generated during the use of online services in a structured, common and machine-readable format which allows for further use and transfer. We reserve the right to restrict the rights of the affected individual in whole or in part within the framework of legal and contractual retention obligations and e.g. not to disclose comprehensive information or to retain Personal Data. The deletion of your Personal Data may mean that you can no longer use our services. In the event we make an automated decision with respect to a certain individual which may have a legal effect for the affected individual or seriously affect him or her in a similar way, the affected individual shall have, in accordance with applicable law, the right to communicate with us and to request a reconsideration of the decision or to request the prior evaluation by us. In this case the affected individual may no longer be able to use certain automated services. The individual will be informed thereof subsequently or separately in advance.  If you have any questions about your rights or if you would like to exercise any of your rights, please contact us by e-mail at dataprivacy@verity.net.

Frequently asked questions

Do you provide drone shows for outdoor venues?

Our Lucie micro drones only weigh 50g (1.8oz), which makes them very safe when flying near people, but due to their light weight, they are unsuitable for outdoor use. Generally, we do not operate outdoors, except in areas very well protected from wind and weather. 

How long do the drones fly? What is the charging time? 

Each of our Lucie micro drones take approximately one hour to charge and can fly for up to 3 minutes. For a longer effect, you can stagger the micro drones’ take-off and landing.

How many drones can you fly together?

Our technology supports an unlimited number of autonomous drones to fly simultaneously. The optimum number of drones for your project is determined by the available space and the creative concept.   

Do you fly above audiences?

Because our Lucie micro drones only weigh 50g (1.8oz), they are very safe when flying near or above people.In most cases we fly above the stage area and performers on stage. In one-time events we have performed above the audience as well. 

How can I get your drones at my event?

Depending on your requirements we will typically need a 4 to 12-week lead-time. We'll develop a creative concept for the drone show choreography and will produce a first 3D animation for your review. We'll also start assembling the equipment you'll need. Once we have shipped the equipment, Verity will come on site for the installation, or we’ll train your staff to do the installation themselves.  If you’re doing a one-time event, our staff will then remain on-site to operate the drone show.  If you’re planning a permanent installation, we will train your staff to operate the drone show and do regular drone maintenance. 

How much maintenance does the system need? 

Our Lucie micro drones are equipped with sensors to monitor their status and will tell you when they require maintenance. We will train the local crew to perform maintenance on the drones. 

How much weight can your drones carry?

Our Lucie micro drones weigh 50g (1.8oz) and are not designed to carry loads. However, we have developed ultra-light weight costumes, which can be attached to the drones, if desired. 

How can I customize the drones for my project?

We can accommodate several types of customization. For example, we can offer client-specific, custom-made costumes. This will be a customized creative and technical project with lead times between 4 and 8 months. We also offer costume design services for the Lucie micro drones, and other technical customization services. These services will incur additional costs and longer lead times. For more information, please get in touch with our sales team.

What flight space can you cover?

We’ve covered indoor event spaces up to small sporting arena size. There is no upper size limit.

My venue has a no-drone policy, will this be a problem?

We’ve had approval to fly in many different venues, in more than 20 countries worldwide. Because our Lucie micro drones are so light and safe, we’ve also been approved to fly in venues with no-drone policies like Changi Airport in Singapore. We will support you in obtaining approval in your venue if required.
