Indian Ocean 18 is proud to announce an Ocean Rowing first. Working with Marine Camera Solutions, Indian Ocean 18 will be able to live stream video from the boat whist pulling our way across the Indian Ocean. It will provide the opportunity for visitors to the website, our sponsors, friends and family to check in with us and really see what life is like on board an ocean rowing boat.
Here is a bit more about Marine Camera Solutions and why we have chosen their media system to help tell the story from on board our Ocean Rowing Boat..
Marine Camera Solutions, design and build cameras, including all associated equipment in order for them to operate in some of the most extreme and hostile marine environments. The pedigree of the Company lies with the offshore racing industry, having worked with some of the most reputable names in events such as the Vendee Globe, the MOD 70’s, and the Clipper Round the World Yacht Race. In fact, in recent times, Marine Camera Solutions has been involved bringing the on board action from some of the most prestigious top level sailing events and helping in televising these to screens around the world.
The media system itself is tried and tested, and is currently being used to increase the sponsors ROI, through the use of the footage being used in the mainstream media and on social pages. The media system meets ever increasing expectations and Marine Camera Solutions is delighted Indian Ocean 18 has chosen it for their upcoming challenge. In addition to increasing awareness for sponsors Indian Ocean 18 are looking to increase awareness of Spotlight YOPD, our chosen charity.
