Hadal Technologies has upgraded its Dibujo HD-SDI High Definition Video Overlay to also perform screen captures of real time video. The Dibujo can now take a snapshot of the overlay output with no interruption to the HDSDI video. Other HD camera systems capable of capturing real time images often disable the HD video output during the image capture, leaving ROV pilots 'on standby' until the video stream returns. Such systems also often require that the stored image be transferred from the camera via some other data link like USB, whereas the Dibujo performs all image capture topside and stores the file locally or to any networked computer.
MiniPOS3 is a powerful upgrade to CDL's existing high accuracy RLG (Ring Laser Gyro) based MiniPOS2 technology. MiniPOS3 has the capability to receive position updates from external systems such as USBL and mix that data with the inertial sensor via a powerful Kalman filter to provide high update, smoothed, positional information.
