Underwater camera systems

Shallow UW Camera System can work to depth up to 500m, showing a black and white live low resolution video stream and can take colour high resolution stills.

The system consists of a UW tripod which holds the UW housing with the camera and electronics and a stand alone light. The tripod is directly connected to the conductive cable via a chinese finger. The cable is spooled on a small winch on the deck side and via a slip-ring connected to the deck unit. The deck unit is finally connected to a PC which runs a MatLab GUI to display and control the camera functions.
