Resolve Optics Ltd reports that a customised version of its compact Z10 high definition zoom lens is being used by a leading European supplier of autonomous camera systems being deployed to monitor methane seep and hydrothermal vent sites deep in the Pacific Ocean.

Designed for real-time imaging via an Internet connection, the autonomous camera systems are being deployed at methane seep and hydrothermal vent sites deep in the ocean where they will remain for one year. They will capture images of the evolving vents and the bacterial and animal life that grows around them. All components in the autonomous camera systems, including the connectors, are made of titanium so the unit can be deployed at a depth of up to 3000 meters for up to a year without maintenance. The whole payload is mounted on a pan and tilt unit so the user can point the camera at desired targets.

The Z10 was selected due to its uniquely compact size, 10x zoom capability and HD image quality. Basing their custom design upon the Z10 enabled Resolve Optics to keep the autonomous camera system as small as possible whilst still providing top quality images.

Available in 2/3-inch, 1/2-inch and 1/3-inch CCD formats – Resolve Optics Z10 HD lenses provide users with high definition (1080 x 720 pixel) resolution throughout their range of operation. The unique, high performance f/1.8, 10x tracking zoom employed in the Z10 ensures images stay in focus throughout the zoom travel by utilising floating cell technology.The Z10 is also able to focus upon objects as close as 450mm from the lens. The motorised Z-10 HD lens is around half the size of and lighter (< 500g) than any other comparible zoom lenses.
