This patent-pending, UVC-compliant camera is the first to feature HD USB output while achieving a waterproof rating of IP69K. Equipped with a modern Sony sensor and a proprietary 4-layer PCB, you will be able to see in low light conditions like never before. Thanks to AI image processing, exploreHDs have exceptional color fidelity, producing pleasing natural images. With integrated H.264 compression technology and our open-source camera driver, you can stream up to 7 cameras simultaneously without major quality loss or latency. You can even stream an unlimited number of cameras together, provided that the bitrate is appropriately reduced. Furthermore, due to its UVC compliant nature, the exploreHD is the first plug and play machine vision capable subsea camera. This makes the exploreHD the perfect choice for anyone looking to make a truly modern multi-cam underwater setup.
