Welaptega’s 3DM system uses subsea stills cameras to collect images for post-processing into 3D models so photo quality is essential to produce accurate, high resolution models. This requirement along with the desire for more immediate results drives the need for a specialized ROV-deployed camera system.
Subsea camera systems available on the market fall short of the mark in resolution, control systems and live photo download so Welaptega has developed a custom subsea stills camera system. The system is based around a machine vision camera module with a large-area, 16 megapixel sensor and a professional photo-grade 24mm lens.
The system will be ready for an offshore trial in June!
