In the September 2017 issue of Sea Technology magazine, SubC was recognized for its partnership with DimEye Corp and their contribution to enhancing subsea survey capabilities. Thanks to the development of HD cameras, like SubC’s 1Cam, it’s now possible to shoot video and extract high-quality images. DimEye found that while it was possible to correct deformations using software, it was difficult to build a perfectly mechanical and optically stable camera.
“It was just a matter of waiting for the development of better cameras with better resolution and stronger optical and mechanical characteristics. Introducing these cameras to the subsea environment was then only a matter of creating the right canister and developing a communication interface suitable for ROVs. A typical example of such a camera is the 1Cam HD by SubC Imaging, which is broadly used now for subsea visual inspection and subsea 3D surveys”.
