Hello! It’s been a while!
We are excited to announce that we have made a revision to the exploreHD! We noticed an issue on the camera noise performance when using H.264, and we spent countless hours developing better methods and technologies to produce a new and improved revision of our camera boards. This not only fixes the issue but improves the reliability and consistency of our high quality video as well.
Additionally, we have developed software to stream 3 cameras simultaneously automatically with ArduSub Companion and view them using our modified version of QGroundControl. Soon we will update our github with the new functionality! We also improved the software on the camera for better auto exposure and color science.
Other updates include an anodized housing for the camera which reduces the risk of oxidation from galvanic corrosion. We also have been improving our mounting system which is now more durable and stable. Lastly, we have changed our lens to wider lens for a wider field of view, letting you capture more in a single shot.
We make sure not only to design but also update our products to provide the best experience to our customers, and we’re sure that you will enjoy the new and improved camera.
