Webcasting from the High Arctic

Our iSi LIVE team just finished a live webcast in the High Arctic’s Northwest Passage where Parks Canada divers explored the wreck of British explorer Sir John Franklin’s ship HMS Erebus which sunk in 1845. All crew members perished. Our technician was streaming the video and audio from a tent on the ice next to a tent where a hole was cut for the divers to descend. The ice is 2 metres thick. He captured and compressed the video sent up from the divers’ cameras and transmitted it over satellite to one of our team members at the Royal Ontario Museum in Toronto who projected the video to invited guests at the Museum. Now, iSi LIVE can add underwater webcasting to its portfolio which also includes two webcasts from space capsules.
