Standard Definition Seamor
This is an example of the Seamor standard definition, high resolution camera that comes standard with all of the Seamor range of Remote Operated Vehicles (ROVs). This footage was recorded on the Gold Coast - Visibility was about 7m, low current, but there was an intermittent surge of around 1m.

Conditions on the day were extremely average, with rain squalls coming through every 30 minutes which hampered the topside equipment, and there was a 2-3 meter surge around the shallower snapper rocks site. Even with these conditions, the high definition camera on the ROV managed to capture awesome footage of the marine benthic community at all sites, allowing the ecologists at FRC to identify with confidence a myriad of species for their report.

The ROV Innovations Inspection team flew up to Mackay on Wednesday with Brian from Neptune Marine to assist SunWater in the inspection of some of their underwater assets an Eungella Dam. The Inspection consisted of two components, initially looking at the sealing of one of its outlet pipes, and secondly finding and inspecting a submerged concrete pipeline outlet tower.
The combination of the High Definition Sony camera in the ROV, additional LED lighting, as well as the VisionClear video enhancer, allowed the Sunwater engineers to confidently assess the situation 35m below on the dam floor. Our Imagenex positioning sonar also enabled us to quickly and efficiently locate the submerged intake tower that rose up to 28m depth, something that prior inspection companies couldn't locate due to the original tech drawings of the dams construction being inaccurate.
Due to the enhanced video feed, HD video, and Sonar, we were able to complete all aspects of the inspection and provide a live view of the assets to the SunWater Engineers. The dam inspection was completed within 4 hours, with the SunWater team being extremely impressed with the ROV and all tech provided by the ROV Innovations and Neptune Marine collaboration.
ROV Innovations provides High Definition underwater footage for industries such as Marine Conservation and Research, Australian Biosecurity, Customs, Documentary and Film Makers, Oil and Gas industries, and AQIS to name a few.
