EV Dynamics (previously CVT)

Regular underwater inspection of the bottom of ships helps to spot damage such as bent propeller blades, hull corrosion, leaking seals or faulty rudders. However, underwater video footage tends to be unclear due to sediment particles and other pollutants. EV Dynamics has developed a software solution (CVC) that uses advanced image processing to improve the clarity of underwater videos. It is designed to integrate easily to customers’ operations, as well as meet requirements, such as low temperatures, high salinity, high pressure or high mechanical vibration caused by shipboard equipment. While CVC is focusing on underwater applications, the same solution can be used for land-based footage, addressing problems like haze, fog and smoke.
