Microsoft Asks: Why do you fly an UltraCam?

Subsequent to the original announcement, homemade videos have been personally created and submitted by UltraCam customers from around the world. These entertaining and informative contributions from AEROmetrex, Blue Skies Consulting, FMM, GeoAir, and GEODIS can be viewed on the We Fly UltraCam website, as well as on the UltraCam blog.

Recording a testimonial is an excellent opportunity for customers to showcase their companies and promote their products and services. The Microsoft UltraCam business unit continues to extend a worldwide invitation to all UltraCam customers to record a short homemade video explaining why “I Fly UltraCam.” These videos will be featured on the UltraCam website and blog, on the UltraCam YouTube Channel, on the UltraCam Facebook page, and occasionally in advertisements.

For more information about submitting your homemade video, please contact Silke Kemmer at
i-sikemm@microsoft.com for submission criteria and guidelines.
