What is MultiStream™?

While our exploreHD cameras can function similarly to conventional USB cameras, they harbor a distinctive feature that sets them apart from standard counterparts: the ability to support MultiStream™ technology.

While most USB cameras typically peak at three simultaneous streams per computer, MultiStream™ breaks through this limitation, enabling the concurrent streaming of more than three cameras.

Additionally, these cameras can be individually streamed via UDP, resembling a separate IP camera when utilizing DWE OS. This unique capability positions the exploreHD camera as a more potent option than typical subsea IP cameras, excelling in power consumption, compact size, latency, feature set, and more.

How to Use MultiStream™?

OPTION 1: Manual Setup

By leveraging our cutting-edge exploreHD camera lines featuring built-in H.264 technology, alongside our innovative 7-Port Multiplexer and a compact single-board computer, such as the Raspberry Pi, we unlock the full potential of MultiStream™ Technology!

Perfect if your ROV/AUV already utilizes a single board computer for operation, such as BlueROV.

OPTION 2: Plug and Play

For a streamlined approach, consider our Subsea Vision Computer. This advanced solution eliminates the necessity for both the 7-Port Multiplexer and the single-board computer, consolidating all essential components into a single Ethernet cable with Power over Ethernet (POE).

Water Depth Ready up to 6000M and support multiple different Subsea Connectors.
