Global Rental Agent Appointment - 08/03/2011

Ashtead Technology has been appointed as an exclusive agent for the rental of SubC Control HD Cameras and associated products. As part of the rental agreement, each Ashtead Technology hub will initially be furnished with a stock of 1CamMkII Stills and HD Video cameras.

Ashtead Technology Offshore Managing Director Mark Derry said ‘Ashtead Technology strive to remain at the forefront of technology. This agreement with SubC Control for their innovative stills and HD video cameras provides our global ROV customers with the latest technology available, on either a sale or flexible rental basis. This advanced technology will also be of use to customers in the Diver and Environmental survey sectors.'

The camera offers 12MP stills and 1080HD video from the one camera. It requires no upgrades to the system as it records to the camera's internal 64GB memory while outputting regular SD video to surface. The 1CamMkII was designed to work in hazardous environments, and the enclosure utilises industry-standard Duplex Steel to give a depth rating of 3,000m.

Commenting on the agreement, Adam Rowe of SubC Control Ltd said "With the introduction of the 1CamMkII, SubC Control demonstrates they are true pioneers in the development and utilisation of leading edge technology for the underwater industry. The partnership with industry leaders Ashtead Technology will see Ashtead act as SubC's rental distributor and compliment SubC's own sales and marketing efforts.

Ashtead Technology's extensive global network of rental outlets along with their long history and expertise working within the subsea technology market will provide global access for SubC products. With an exciting and innovative product line to be released in 2011, we expect this to be just the first step in a successful relationship for both parties and a harbinger of great things to follow."
