Subsea Video Surveillance System
Weatherford’s subsea surveillance system provides video and still picture recording, presentation of current and archived still and video files and transmission of real-time video. The system allows you to create a video history of installations, upgrades and repairs or real-time viewing of system operations.
The video and communication system is modular in design with a depth rating of 3281 feet (1000 meters) for aluminum housing or 9843 feet (3000 meters) with an optional titanium housing. The system communicates on copper or fiber optics. The existing power lines are usually all that is needed to create a reliable monitoring system.
The built-in lighting system supplies ample light for deep or murky waters, and optional LED lights provide lighting in extreme circumstances. The video or still picture data is transmitted to the surface where Weatherford’s web-based software displays and stores the images. It includes a complete web-based software suite for control, storage and display of image data. The stored images can be tagged for future reference. Surface software also allows the user to remotely control the camera including panning, tilting and lighting changes.
A protection cage shields the camera from damage during installation and operation. The modular design includes a fully customizable mounting device that adapts to even the most unusual subsea structures. Optional add-ons include an ultraviolet (UV) and an infrared (IR) camera in addition to customer specific instruments.
