Forum Energy Technologies has welcomed its VisualSoft product line, featuring several new features and capabilities. The VisualSoft Suite is a well-established toolbox of applications that are used during surveys and inspections of subsea assets, in particular pipelines and cables.

The first of these releases is a multi-channel, high definition version of its VisualDVR (digital video recorder). The recorder is available with up to four channels of high definition video recording and with inbuilt dynamic overlay. It can distribute live video and overlay channels without the need for additional hardware. Video files are recorded using H.264 encoding for optimum storage efficiency and playback compatibility.

To recognise the subsea industry’s widespread use of H.264 as a recording format, VisualSoft has released an unlimited codec-free player for use in its editing suite (VisualEdit) and viewer (VisualReview). The player has improved window handling to allow optimum use of high definition video playback.

The release of VisualSoft Suite version 11 (V11) will bring a host of refinements to existing software. It also includes a new 3D graphics window within all VisualEdit editions. The tool provides improved and faster display of multi-beam echo sounders (MBES) and profiler data, as well as featuring a user friendly interface to allow users to configure the appearance of the pipeline, seabed and anomalies for faster and easier review of data.

An audio logging and display feature is also included in V11. This tool can be accessed when using VisualEdit or VisualReview to identify and navigate to regions within the recording which have audio usually associated with event observations.

Forum Energy Technologies is also welcoming the new VisualOverlay, a standalone dynamic overlay system with the features and user friendly configurator that is found within the VisualDVR overlay.

VisualSoft products and representatives can be found on the Forum Energy Technologies stand (H6) at Ocean Business 17.
