SubC Helps to Uncover a Mystery

Events, Projects, SubC in the Press | December 21, 2016

Two and a half kilometers below the ocean and 200 kilometers from the coast sits Australia’s largest naval disaster. In a never seen before experience, witness forgotten ships and the history behind them. The From Great Depths book gives light to the long sunken ships through a sequence of 2d and 3d high definition photos courtesy of SubC Imaging’s specialized cameras and imaging systems. Although the HMAS Sydney (II) and HSK Kormoran have been sitting on the sea floor in darkness for 75 years, From Great Depths with the help of SubC’s equipment brings them back to life. Make sure to check out this amazing publication here!

There is also be an exhibition held at the Museum of Geraldton that focuses on the beautiful images that highlight this exploration under the sea. Included in this exhibition is an exciting 3D film featuring the underwater footage captured during the expedition, along with personal accounts and historic images! You can read more about the exhibition here!

Insights into the abundance and diversity of abyssal megafauna – The advantage of SubC’s 1Cam

Projects | August 3, 2016

The 1Cam continues to be a primary tool in the marine research community. This time it has helped researchers better understand and monitor the abundant diversity of mega-fauna in the Clarion-Clipperton Fracture Zone.

The ROV was equipped with two manipulators, four ROS QLEDIII lights, 1Cam Alpha Component high-definition downward-looking “science” video camera (1080p video and 24.1 megapixel stills) and one standard-definition forward-looking “pilot” video camera.
