FORT COLLINS, Colorado / COLUMBUS, Ohio – Remote GeoSystems, Inc. and Due North Aviation are pleased to announce the successful implementation of the geoDVR Gen2 with a SWESystem 300 Gimbal Video Camera on a Bell Helicopter for Airborne Utility Line Inspections.
“The geoDVR is a purpose-built geospatial DVR for the airborne utility and pipeline patrol industry and it shows” says Nathan Kayes, Managing Member of Due North Aviation. “Being able to record all three HD & SD video channels to a single drive, along with the Live Moving Maps and Waypoint Keyword modules offers significant advantages both in the air and for the final inspection deliverables we provide our clients.”
The geoDVR Gen2 is an advanced mil-spec DVR for recording multiple channels of geo-referenced High-Definition Full Motion Video (gFMV™) in airborne and mobile mapping environments. It is ideally suited for professional utility/pipeline inspection, electronic news gathering and airborne law enforcement applications that utilize multi-sensor gyro-stabilized gimbal video cameras.
Due North Aviation will use the geoDVR with their SWESystem 300 gimbal to perform helicopter-based electric utility inspections with High-Definition color (EO), Infrared (IR) and Corona (UV) video. Using LineVision™ software, Due North will combine the geoDVR videos as well as high-resolution oblique still photos to create geoProjects™ for their clients.
Videos, photos, points of interest and audio notes collected with the geoDVR are compatible with Remote GeoSystems LineVision suite of GIS project mapping and reporting software. LineVision allows for simple desktop and browser-based playback, analysis and project reporting utilizing the Esri ArcGIS Desktop, Server and Cloud Platforms, as well as Bing Maps and PLS-CADD.
