Pushing the Limits of Underwater Video

Anders Holm, LYYN AB

The key to successful underwater vision is getting rid of the water! This cliché is as old as underwater photography itself, but it’s still true today. Depth, distance, lighting, turbidity of the water, salinity, and pollution all contribute to the visibility, and the perception of size, shape, and colour of underwater objects.

Adding the abilities and limitations of the human eye and brain makes this a very challenging environment. However, technological development is rapidly pushing the limits of what we can see and do underwater. The revolutionary method invented by LYYN AB takes a whole new approach.

Each video frame is optimized for contrast and colour spectrum to make it as “natural” as possible to the human eye. Even the smallest fragments of colour and object shape can be extracted from the camera sensor to restore the scene as much as possible. And all this is done in real-time. The result is an image that constantly self-adjusts to the environment and the diver or ROV pilot can focus on mission objectives.
