MILTON KEYNES, UK -- General Robotics Ltd. (GRL) has launched its DeepView 2.0 subsea visualization software, and DeepLive real-time data capture module.

DeepView 2.0 is a visualization and animation tool for creating subsea scenarios. It allows for multiple concurrent views of an operation with full-data recording and replay in 3D. DeepView 2.0 is equipped with an easy-to-use operator interface that simplifies the creation of complex underwater representations, according to GRL. The new interface enables generation of scenarios by using 'drag and drop' to add components in the subsea model.

DeepLive is a supplementary data input module for DeepView and the forthcoming release of DeepSim 2.0. DeepLive accepts GPS and USBL data inputs to show the position in a 3D visualization.

"DeepView 2.0 gives our customers an advanced tool for viewing deployed assets in an exceptionally easy manner that reduces stress in an operational environment," says Dr. Jason Tisdall, managing director of General Robotics. "Used with DeepLive, DeepView is an ideal visualization tool for use offshore in support vessels to show in 3D what is actually happening underwater, as an aid to operational decisions."

DeepView and DeepLive will be available from October.
