Just started looking into the ROV world. Completely new on this forum and in ROVs in general.
A colleague of mine has invested a lot of money into the VideoRay Pro 4, which on the topside (Dry side or controlling side) looks quite OK, fitting inside a Pelicase and runs power + video through the yellow cable.
But then for me personally I thought… “WTF is this video quality” on this expensive setup. My colleague is an experienced ROV operator and have used his setup professionally for real life tasks inspecting ocean wind-mill foundations. I already knew about the BlueROV2, but didnt know about specs and everything, until today where I noticed the BlueROV runs on battery power.
Is something being done into perhaps changing the BlueROV2 to run power + video through the same cable? Id really love to use the BlueROV2 professionally in the future (Since I cannot afford a VideoRay4 with different equipment lol), also I’m the marine IT- and tech guy on this research vessel playing around (Developing) with live fish-trawl filming systems in 1080p60 and Arduino programming etc… I dont mind the more nerdy DIY tech-approach to the BlueROV compared to the VideoRay which I guess is more Plug-N-Play oriented for the non tech-savvy.
I hope the above could come true someday. 2-4 hours seems like a short run-time for my goals.
Sorry about the writing. English is not my main language.
