Gates Underwater Products announces POV CAM Underwater Housing

Remote, Point Of View 4K Imaging for a wide variety of applications.

Gates Underwater Products – manufacturer of the world’s most reliable underwater housings – today announces the POV CAM Underwater Housing system.  Consisting of two unique housings –UMR20 Recorder and UCK20 Camera Head --  the POV CAM Point Of View system separates operator and subject by up to 60ft / 20m, opening up an array of remote 4K imaging opportunities.

Mounted as a polecam, the small and nimble UCK20 Camera Head can capture middle-of-the-action shark feeds, or underwater Polar Bears up close and personal.  Cave divers can look ahead into tight passages before attempting entry.  Shy marine critters like Garden Eels and Jawfish can be acquired from afar.  Or how about tide pools and surf shots?  The POV CAM system is readily adaptable to suit such wide applications.
