View into the Blue Interviewed by Arrow for Their Underwater Camera Rigs Used to Film @ChasingCoral | @Arrow_Dot_com @netflix #documentary

This is a fantastic interview by Arrow of Trevor Mendelow from View Into The Blue for their custom underwater camera rigs, notably the unit that was designed in-house for use filming the Netflix documentary Chasing Coral. Trevor and Arrow’s Zach Wendt discuss Raspberry Pi, Arduino Nano, VPNs, and more – the video includes some fantastic behind-the-scenes shots of View Into The Blue’s operation as well as the manufacturing and guts of the camera station, which when installed underwater looks something like this:

Arrow writes about their interview:

Arrow Electronics interviewed View into the Blue to see how they made a custom underwater camera solution to help film the powerful Netflix documentary Chasing Coral.

View into the Blue is an underwater camera company that specializes in making underwater webcams with a proprietary self-cleaning technology that eliminates algae and microorganisms. In one of their most recent projects, they worked with the film team of the acclaimed Netflix documentary Chasing Coral to capture under-water time-lapse photographs and video of coral. To do so, View into the Blue utilized off-the-shelf components such as an Arduino Pro Mini, a Raspberry Pi 3, relays and linear actuators to create a completely custom camera system that lasted four months underwater!

Check out how the Chasing Coral team and View into the Blue were able to capture some of the most difficult videos filmed for the Chasing Coral documentary.

Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
