Tritech Tornado - Low Light Underwater Video Camera
Description The Tritech range of underwater video cameras offer a complete spectrum of high specification, high performance cameras from low cost black and white underwater inspection cameras to broadcast quality colour zoom cameras.

The Tritech Tornado underwater video camera is a high quality low light camera system using the very latest CCD technology.

A " Interline CCD sensor provides a high-resolution 570 horizontal line monochrome picture. The camera module has a light sensitivity of 3x10-4 lux. The Tornado camera is contained within a new 4000m compact stainless steel housing fitted with a high quality water corrected acrylic view port.

The importance of a water corrected view port is often underestimated in underwater cameras. The acrylic view ports used on all Tritech underwater video cameras has similar refractive properties to that of water enabling the use of a plano-concave design, which is the optimum solution for deep water lenses.

A plano-concave view port reduces the effects of refraction and eliminates chromatic aberration. This ensures a clear and sharp picture during close proximity viewing in all water conditions.

The Tornado underwater video camera is supplied with a switchable long line amplifier making it suitable for use with short, medium and long umbilicals.
