Deep Sea Dive with James Cameron



by Kerstin Roost, Public Relations Director

Last year, film-maker James Cameron completed a record dive to reach the deepest part of the Mariana Trench, located in the Pacific Ocean. Isn’t it great to see satellite technology be part of this great scientific expedition, backed by the National Geographic Society and Rolex?

Newtec’s technology AZ110 + AZ210 1+1 switch and AZ910, all with DualFlow®, were used to transmit real time video and images back via Telstra’s earth station in Sydney, as part of the deep-ocean research.

The extraordinary deal was done by Newtec’s partner Lumina Broadcast Systems headquartered in Sydney, Australia.
