Aker Kvaerner Offshore Partner is pleased to announce the release of Coabis 9.0. Building on the successful Coabis 8 application, the new version includes an interface with NETmc DVRi digital video encoder hardware. As well as encoding all routine video (full-frame MPEG2), this interface also enables Data Recorders to grab still images and create short video clips during dive operations, and link these files automatically to anomalies, etc.
Aker Kvaerner expect the DVRi interface to be utilised by several companies in 2005, including Shell EPE, ChevronTexaco, Talisman Energy and Woodside Energy (who have recently replaced Netlink Inspection Systems' Inspection Manager Enterprise with Coabis, following their 2003 inspection campaign).
Other new features in Coabis 9.0 include a CO2 corrosion modeller and PocketPC data-gathering interface.
