Regular inspection of Pipelines is vital to ensuring the condition of major infrastructure and avoiding expensive environmental damage.
This system uses the HDAV2000 to provide video capture and encoding for both driving the pipeline crawler and carrying out the High definition video survey of the pipeline. Two SD composite video channels are encoded and streamed to a remote operator console for controlling the movement of the pipeline inspection crawler. The input from a High definition source and an optional infrared source are encoded and saved to local storage for later retrieval and analysis. Audio commentary from the remote operator is recorded with the survey recording.
