Ultimate image quality, stable platform, highly manoeuvrable, large internal payload and access to areas unreachable with a diver

Before the Boxfish ROV (Remotely Operated Vehicle), underwater filmmakers have struggled to find systems that provide both a stable filming platform and real-time streaming of production quality video.

Divers are the current solution to most underwater filming. However, they have multiple disadvantages, such as dive time restrictions, steadiness, and restrictions on depth and access to remote locations. On top of the issues associated with divers, there is also the need for multiple takes, this is due to the captured footage only being able to be reviewed once it has been retrieved from the camera.

Cinematographic Boxfish ROV directly solves these pain points and opens up new areas of the world for exploration. The Boxfish ROV is the only product on the market that is designed for this purpose.

The feedback we have received from the cinematography industry is that you:

  • love the outstanding manoeuvrability – the ability for precise pan and dolly shot as well ultra slow movements is unheard for underwater filming
  • love the stability of the cameras, which are unmatched by divers
  • have direct control of the shot from the surface without relayed messages or multiple takes
  • appreciate that you don’t need to get additional divers (along with that all the H&S regulations) – given the ROV is remotely operated
