Imenco and High Resolution Subsea Digital Imaging
Posted by Irina Tabakina
Imenco challenges established standards with the introduction of an all-digital system that it says will have considerable ramifications in the way the subsea industry carries out inspection tasks. The solution, and all of Imenco’s future systems, will be run with Ethernet using the latest TCP/IP Standard. With the ‘PC’ inside the camera rather than on the surface, customers will be able to tailor how they use the subsea system to meet their own specific demands using Apps supplied by Imenco or written specifically for their need. Imenco has designed and written the software providing greater control over the image, lower latency and the ability to deliver potential communications activity currently unachievable in the subsea arena. The most exciting element is that subsea devices will be able to automatically ‘talk’ to each other.
