ABERDEEN, UK – Wood and Librestream Technologies have developed a new service for streaming video and storing data from remote work locations, including offshore.
The Onsight Cube is a camera that can be worn on a helmet, chest mount or mono-pod to access high or difficult-to-reach areas. It connects wirelessly via Bluetooth to a handset.
According to Wood, the technology can connect specialists in any location directly with remote worksites, transferring real-time data such as audio, pictures, thermographic images, and video.
This allows decisions to be taken on status of equipment, and collaborative approaches to problem solving, avoiding unnecessary mobilization of staff to remote locations.
The system comprises a thermal camera with onboard secure storage, which can operate in harsh environments and low to high external temperatures.
Onsight Cube is said to be fully compatible with eXpert and allows hands-free capture of high-resolution images, with infra-red (thermal) vision capture and sharing. It will be certified for safe use in all areas of oil and gas facilities, Wood added.
