Other equipment & facilities
HD Video System
The HD video system can be deployed to water depths of up to 5000m and records live video streams at high resolution. The surveilance of deep sea habitats or gear is strongly improved by the in house development of a new High Definition camera system suspended in a hopper frame. Using the new fiber optic cable on the Pelagia we are now able to view live HD video recordings in real-time.
