Recent advances in high-definition web-enabled cameras make possible live video from nearly any place on the planet.
The ability to view and control cameras remotely is giving rise to a new world of telepresence. These new technologies are
discussed and are shown applied to the areas of ocean conservation, education and research. Several applications are cited from
the use as an virtual aquarium to live streaming video from the bottom of oceans of the world.
Since 2006, OPT has been designing and manufacturing advanced underwater IP video products including cameras,
lighting, data recorders and wireless network components. Remotely operated pan-tilt-zoom high-definition Internet cameras
are now being employed in research, education, security and other commercial oceanographic applications.
