Use a monitor such as DJI's Crystal Sky which has HDMI output.
That output then goes to the production switcher (or sort of...).

BTW: Welcome to Mavicpilots!

I wanted to find out if there are other ways
There might be others, but first, you have to ask the production team what input source they can work with.
Is it HDMI, SDI, FBAS, Y/C and so on.

Then, how do you get the video signal from the drone to the switcher/mixer?
Miracast and Android? Apples solution via Airplay?
How far is the pilot away from the switcher? Are repeaters neccessary?

What about quality, is it a paid job or a one time event?

You see, many options, many questions ... ;-)

Nvidia Shield K1 Tablet has a micro HDMI output as well. So one can send the video output from the DJIGO4 app to goggles or other equipment that has an HDMI input. You can find them on eBay for $200 or less.

There is also Youtube streaming through the DJIGO4 app. (I know that may not help you , but wanted to mention it.)
