Apex SeaCam

Apex SeaCam

The upcoming Apex SeaCam features:

  • 4K UHD and multiple HD formats
  • Superior performance with proprietary corrector optics
  • 70° horizontal FOV
  • 12x optical zoom
  • 20x lossless digital zoom
  • Titanium housing depth rated to 6,000 m

The Apex SeaCam is capable of 4K UHD and operates in multiple HD formats. Proprietary corrector optics provide superior imaging performance with a low-distortion 70° HFOV. A faceplate illumination of 0.56 lux provides impressive low light performance.

Both 4K UHD and HD configurations have a 12x optical zoom, and the HD output modes feature a lossless digital zoom feature which extends the zoom range to 20x. The IP Apex SeaCam model supports common real-time IP streaming and camera management protocols with up to four days of continuous 4K recording.

Tested with over 10,000 pressure cycles during the design process, the titanium housing and optically polished dome are depth rated to 6,000 m.

The coax transmission method supports easy integration into existing systems. The Apex SeaCam benefits scientific research and exploration, cinematography, and projects that require the highest quality imaging.

The Apex SeaCam includes a mounting bracket with 1/4″-20 imperial threads.
