DJI Transmission

Operating Alta X with DJI Transmission

DJI's transmission technology works on various frequency bands, including non-DFS (Dynamic Frequency Selection) and DFS frequency bands. While this empowers filmmakers on movie sets, it also raises concerns about potential interference with aircraft (Alta X) operating within the same area.

The non-DFS frequency bands, comprising ranges such as 2.4000-2.4835 GHz, 5.150-5.250 GHz, and 5.725-5.850 GHz, are widely used by various wireless devices. DJI Transmission systems operating in these frequency ranges may unintentionally disrupt the operation of Wi-Fi networks, Bluetooth devices, and other aircraft connections. Such interference can lead to signal degradation, communication disruptions, or even complete loss of control for other devices sharing the same frequency spectrum.

Similarly, DJI's transmission technology in the DFS frequency bands, encompassing ranges like 5.250-5.350 GHz, 5.470-5.600 GHz, and 5.650-5.725 GHz, operates within frequencies that are subject to regulatory requirements to avoid interference with radar systems. Unintended interference from DJI Transmission can compromise the functionality of critical systems while working. This interference can pose significant risks to the safety and efficiency of any Alta X (and other Drone) operations in its vicinity.


While DJI's transmission technology offers unparalleled connectivity and video transmission capabilities for cinematography, it is vital to emphasize the potential risk of interference it can cause to other aircraft (Unmanned & Manned) and systems operating within the same frequency spectrum. Responsible drone operation, adherence to regulatory guidelines, and airspace awareness are paramount to ensure the safety and efficiency of all aircraft.
