MONITORS

Invalid Displayed Gallery

Tilt, pivot and swivel for the perfect, comfortable viewing position.

Ask any seasoned professional what makes underwater imaging easy and painless.  The housing list is short: reliability; perfect balance / trim; simple, uncomplicated controls; and an external monitor that is position-able to any viewing angle.  Struggling to see a fixed monitor facing somewhere other than where they are setup makes focus and framing difficult, if not impossible.

Gates family of External Monitors is broad and feature rich.  High resolution displays, access to focus and exposure tools, shades and shade extensions, and of course a tilt / swivel base mount for perfect positioning.   Reliability is inherent:  Seal Check fittings are standard to verify integrity *before* entering the water.  And nearly all cables are custom made to Gates specifications with a tough outer jacket and internal water-block material.  Should the cable accidentally get cut through, water will not travel to your monitor or precious camera.

Reaching the far corners of the world, Gates housings are tasked with the most demanding projects extending from marine research and military to television and cinema productions. Experts know that failure is not an option, so they never take a chance…. they take a Gates!
