Imenco launches SubVIS Orca

For the first time, live subsea video can be digitally transmitted via Ethernet without significant latency.

SubVIS OrcaImenco has launched their first camera based on a newly developed platform opening up for new  opportunities for the subsea video industry. 

SubVIS

The platform called Subsea Visual Intelligence System (SubVIS), represents a technology breakthrough in Ethernet-based video streaming for the subsea industry. The platform is based on embedding a computer into the camera, making it ready for advanced image enhancement and Computer Vision. The computer is especially designed for low latency video processing, based on Smart Phone technology. Full digital video transmission opens up an array of applications in the control room. 

OPEN ARCHITECTURE

Similar to the Smart Phone technology, an important part of Imenco’s philosophy is to ensure an open architecture to allow third parties to fully integrate these cameras into their control systems and to write software applications to increase the popularity and usefulness of the platform. This gives the freedom to tailor the package to suit specific demands, as well as integrating own video analysis function algorithms, image enhancement etc. on top of the core software.

IMAGE METADATA

The system opens up for the use of image Metadata. One of the most innovative features is that subsea devices can be made to automatically communicate with each other. This allows for example the camera to tell the lights to reduce its intensity and deliver optimum level of light.

SubVIS Orca is the first camera based on this new system. Orca is the latin name of Killer Whale, a member of the Dolphin family, the most intelligent creatures in the ocean. SubVIS Orca is now ready for sale from all Imenco's offices worldwide.
