Pottstown, PA – VideoRay, the largest volume producer of underwater remotely operated vehicle (ROV) systems is pleased to announce a new partnership with KSI Data Sciences, the leaders in video and data management for remote sensors, to provide MissionCaster® live video sharing technology on VideoRay Pro 4 and Mission Specialist Series ROV systems beginning in the summer of 2016.
MissionCaster is a mobile, network enabled (LTE), video encoder designed for remote sensing platforms that can securely broadcast live video to the cloud for real-time situational awareness, exploitation, and sharing to anyone in the world via a web browser and internet connection. It is part of the MissionKeeper™ cloud-based video and data management platform.
Initially conceived for the aerial drone market, MissionCaster transitions seamlessly to the underwater world making your VideoRay ROV missions available in real-time to anyone you choose to share with. The MissionCaster viewer's slick user interface not only displays the low-latency live video stream from the ROV, but also allows the viewing of a live, moving map with the ROV's positioning and mission history.
All video and data from the mission is compiled and can be set to automatically be sent to one of several popular online services such as Dropbox or Google Drive. If a network is unavailable at the mission site, MissionCaster can also archive the video and data onto a removable SD storage card (up to 512 GB).
From Scott Bentley, Founder and CEO of VideoRay LLC: "VideoRay has always been on the forefront of underwater technology, so we are thrilled to partner with KSI to bring our customers the best possible ROV experience. MissionCaster adds a much-needed capability to the Pro 4 and Mission Specialist Series ROV systems: easily and efficiently sharing a live stream to a larger audience."
From Jon Gaster, Co-Founder and CEO of KSI Data Sciences: "We are delighted to be partnering with VideoRay, their market leading ROV systems are a perfect complement for our video and data management and collaboration tools. We believe the market will be quick to recognize VideoRay's continuing success in providing solutions that address customers' complex operational issues."
The MissionCaster HD technology will be on display at Oceanology 2016 at ExCel London, UK in VideoRay's stand (L200) March 15-17, 2016.
