In today’s age we should not be surprised to see the deep sea as never seen before. And how to make videos underwater.
Advances in technology show previously inaccessible sites in all their splendor, such as the Mariana trenches that can now be seen through videos, so we can observe the marine fauna that lives in its abysmal waters.
And it’s not just passive observers, scientists and marine biologists around the world have been able, by studying these recordings, to take a closer look at the depths.
But not everything is deep darkness in the ocean:
The Great Barrier Reef off the Australian coast is constantly being studied, and thanks to new technologies, this wonderful structure of natural life can be viewed, considered the longest on the planet, one of the few that can be seen even from space.
Underwater robotics have long been used to explore the underwater environment, especially for the inspection of important infrastructure such as bridges, dams, pipelines, oil platforms, military applications, and communication structures.
Subsea infrastructure is a vital part of the national security of any country, it can commonly be at risk, especially those elements that are exposed to aggressive and corrosive ocean environments. These components are now visible thanks to ROVs or submersible robots, they capture in video and images what was previously only possible through the often dangerous work of human divers.
VideoRay ROV System
The VideoRay system is the most widely used in remotely operated underwater ROVs. This entry-level system that provides live video from an underwater camera has been tested by a large number of users in a variety of situations with increasingly challenging degrees of difficulty.
Video Ray Explorer
The VideoRay Explorer is an entry-level remotely operated vehicle (ROV) system that provides the operator with a live video feed from the submerged robotic camera.
The important thing about this device is that it has the option to be compatible with better tools such as: sonars, water quality meters, metal presence meters, radiation positioning systems and other equipment that are highly compatible with VideoRay Professional ROV.
This basic system includes the three basic mechanisms of an ROV: the submersible vehicle, the umbilical and the surface control unit.
This device has a 7-inch color LCD screen and control knobs for the horizontal and vertical thrust of the submersible. It has halogen lighting of variable intensity. The video device can be connected to the control panel.
In addition, it can descend up to 76 meters deep and has a depth sensor, automatic depth function, compass and work timer.
Water Tank Inspection ROV
This is the ROV par excellence for carrying out internal inspections of water tanks, and many companies rely on its effectiveness, since depending on the needs of the work it can be attached to a wide range of accessories such as: The VideoRay external SD camera, The VideoRay manipulator arm o The ultrasonic metal thickness gauge Cygnus .
