Tritech Super SeaSpy camera – Available for rental, hire and ex-rental purchase from Ashtead Technology.
The Tritech Super SeaSpy underwater video camera is a compact, high resolution, full colour camera with integral low voltage lighting. Built to survive the harsh underwater inspection environment, the Super SeaSpy has been designed to be compact and rugged, whilst providing high quality colour video.
The Super SeaSpy incorporates a ring of white LEDs, which provide uniform illumination over the field of view. The LED engine utilises dynamic light control, which automatically adjusts the lighting level to optimise video image quality, regardless of the reflectivity of the work surface. This feature also helps to enhance picture quality by reducing the amount of backscatter from suspended particles in the water column.
This integral lighting provides a camera that is suited for close proximity inspection work where little or no lighting is available. The Super SeaSpy is also specified for ROV intervention tooling by several of the major developers in this field.
Integrated LED lighting, Ivanoff corrected lens and variable gain long line driver
An integrated array of high power LEDs ensures the camera always has light to operate. The Super SeaSpy is also fitted with an Ivanoff corrected lens system that optimises the picture quality by reducing radial distortion and reducing chromatic aberration. Additionally an integral video line driver can be fitted which compensates for attenuation of the signal when used through longer cables.
