Underwater NightvisionFriday 10 May 2013 - 11:38:12 | nickturner
It's here! finally our underwater Starlight/Infrared Camera system has its first swimming pool test in Bristol with underwater specialists Doug Anderson, John Chambers and Katharina Brown. The new system will be deployed in the Red Sea in June for its first field trip, until then we have some refinements to make to the housing and underwater infrared lights. By putting our tried and tested Starlight cameras underwater we hope to open up some entirely new territory in the realms of nighttime film making. Crews will now be able to dive and film in the sea at night without visible lights using the same technology that has been developed for terrestrial filming over the last 20 years.

Stargazing Live - The Colours of Stars with Mark ThompsonWednesday 09 January 2013 - 19:11:04 | nickturner
A great sequence here on tonight on BBC2's Stargazing Live featuring one of our cameras, all about the colours of stars. Unlike the Rhinos material in Africa this hasn't been noise-reduced/post-produced by our friends at Ammonite Ltd . This material is straight out of the camera so it's a little noisier than normal and filmed with a mixture of starlight and infrared light by one of our starlight operators Mark Payne Gill.
