Introducing the exploreHD Pro, our most advanced machine vision camera with an exceptional depth rating of 6000 meters. This groundbreaking camera empowers you to explore depths previously inaccessible by most. Precision Machined from titanium and thoroughly coated with Diamond-Like Carbon (DLC), the exploreHD Pro offers durability without compromising on size and high image quality. Its compact form factor opens up a wide range of applications for subsea robotics and machine vision requirements.

We understand the importance of maintaining high image quality and capabilities, even with a compact form factor and impressive depth rating. That's why the exploreHD Pro features the same backside illuminated sensor found in the exploreHD Heavy. This sensor delivers exceptional low light performance, while reducing noise for high resolution imaging.

The exploreHD Pro is specifically designed to tackle advanced computer vision applications, bridging the gap between operator-controlled and autonomous underwater robots. When combined with our cutting-edge DWE OS software, the potential for exploration becomes boundless. Building upon the success of our popular exploreHD Controls, this software offers a multitude of new features such as bitrate control, brightness, contrast, exposure, backlight compensation, TrueColor, and more!
