Both offerings relieve news crews and production managers of drone-related responsibilities ranging from hardware and software selection to airspace permitting, regulatory compliance, insurance coverage, equipment maintenance and repairs, and everyday troubleshooting. Measure has experienced success with its turnkey service offered to major cable and broadcast news organizations. It launched in more than a year ago and has provided broadcast-quality aerial footage of Hurricane Matthew, the 2016 presidential election and other major news events around the world.

- Broadcast-ready drone and camera hardware, including the DJI Inspire 2 and DJI X5S Micro 4/3 camera with interchangeable lenses. Equipment can be either leased or purchased directly from Measure.
- A LiveU Bonded Cellular Uplink enabling live footage
