OceanTools, global leaders in subsea engineering, have launched two new high performance subsea cameras the C3-30 IP & C9-GigE, to add to their extensive underwater product range at the Ocean Business exhibition in Southampton.

The compact 6000m depth rated C3-30 provides 2MP HD video over IP and is believed to be the smallest subsea IP camera on the market. The camera is the latest addition to the very successful C3 camera range adding to the C3-10 (SD) and C3-20 (HD) cameras. Our C3 cameras can be supplied with a scratch resistant sapphire window or wide angle fully water corrected optics. The C3 collection of cameras are designed for a wide range of underwater viewing applications including ROV tooling and navigation.

The C9-GigE camera has been designed in conjunction with a key client of OceanTools. The development of the new camera system was tailored to the customer’s specific requirements providing them with an innovative and reliable cost-effective solution. The anodised aluminium C9 is rated for 2000m with a 6000m titanium option available. Developed for ROV use, the camera provides GigE Vision compliant video in monochrome or colour with 3-Megapixel resolution. The C9 also includes the advanced optical design offering wide angle viewing and minimal distortion.

Brian Hector, Technical Sales Manager, OceanTools, commented "I am very proud we are adding the C3-30 and C9 to the ever-increasing portfolio of OceanTools vision products. For all our cameras we set out to achieve the best electronically, mechanically, and optically designed products for the market. With the positive feedback we have received from our customers using the C9 and C3-30, it would suggest we have very much succeeded in our quest”.
