C-Tecnics Release High Definition Camera and HDD Video System


Aberdeen based Subsea Electronics experts, C-Tecnics, are proud to announce the release of the C-Vision HD, a Portable High Definition Underwater Video System with HDD Recording.

The first of these systems has now been delivered to a European Marine Research and Oceanographic Institute with further orders already in the pipeline.

The C-Vision HD Surface Control Unit is a robust, case mounted PC with a built in HD Monitor, 600G HDD, Camera Power and Control (Zoom and Focus), Light Power and Intensity Control and Laser Activation. The C-Vision Software allows the user to instantaneously begin inspection, recording and playback and also includes a screenshot feature. The system can record up to 30 hours worth of high definition video footage and allows the user to easily transfer this onto an external hard drive via a USB port. HD-SDI, VGA and LAN outputs are also provided as standard with the system.

The C-Vision HD features the new C-Tecnics Mantis HD Camera which offers outstanding picture quality, zoom and focus control and a range of HD and SD video output formats. The standard camera is supplied in an aluminium housing rated to 1000m however optional housing materials and connector types are available to suit individual customer requirements. The Mantis HD Camera can also be supplied individually, configured to operate with existing customer equipment upon request.

The system allows variable control of two C-Tecnics CT4003 Underwater LED Lights as well as control of two C-Tecnics CT4005 Underwater Lasers which are used for accurate scaling of underwater features.

Its lightweight and robust design allows the C-Vision HD to be easily transported to remote locations and used from small vessels or offshore modules.
