Boxfish is designed for…

Cinematography

Before the advent of ROV technology, underwater filmmakers struggled to find systems that provided both a stable filming platform and real-time streaming of production-quality video. 

Human divers holding recording equipment are currently used for most underwater filming requirements. However, this method has multiple disadvantages, constraints and restrictions, such as length of time filming can occur, problems with steadiness of the image, and physical restrictions on depth and access to remote underwater locations. On top of the issues cinematographers face associated with the limitations on what human divers can achieve, there are also so many more issues that ROV technology can solve! With the Boxfish ROV the need for multiple takes is completely eliminated as images can be reviewed in real-time and do not have to be retrieved from the camera for reviewing. 

The Boxfish ROV directly solves these ‘pain points’ while opening up new areas of the underwater world for exploration. The Boxfish ROV is the only product on the market that is designed for this purpose.

Industry Feedback

Love the stability of the cameras, which are unmatched by divers!

We now have direct control of the shot from the surface without relayed messages or multiple takes!

We really appreciate that you don’t need to get additional divers (along with that all the H&S regulations we no longer have to worry about!) given the ROV is remotely operated…

Love the outstanding manoeuvrability – the ability for precise pan and dolly shot as well ultra-slow movements is unheard of underwater – until now.
