Explorers to Send 1st Live Video Broadcast from Ocean Depths

Saturday, 09 March 2019 07:37 AM

ALPHONSE ATOLL, Seychelles (AP) — Explorers are set to deliver the first live video broadcast from deep below an ocean's surface.

Early next week, a submersible is expected to dive to 300 meters off the Seychelles in the Indian Ocean and send images to a satellite transmitter on the mother ship. The Associated Press will send that footage around the world.

The British-led Nekton Mission highlights the state of the oceans as fears grow over climate change. The Indian Ocean is the world's least explored.

The challenge is to transmit live video from the depths without restricting the free-roaming submersible. The solution turns the images into light, which is transmitted to a decoder and then sent to the mother ship via fiber-optic cable.
