Your breakthrough in remote inspection

Perform effective remote inspections with livestreamed HD video, images, documentation and remote input.

Overview

Remote inspection with 30 fps HD video using up to 80% less bandwidth

To keep up with today’s changing conditions, more companies are turning to remote inspections as their primary means of maintaining operations, assets, and equipment.

However, fully-synchronised remote video inspections have proven difficult to implement due to patchy and unreliable bandwidth. Inspection teams have been struggling with dropped signals, missing video frames, low quality images, and choppy two-way communications. 

Greater network capacity is not an option for many remote operations. Only solutions that offer bandwidth optimisation can solve the problem. 

Harvest optimises your existing network to reduce bandwidth utilisation by up to 80%, enabling crew members to transmit 30 fps HD video, hi-res images, and data in real-time from remote operations anywhere in the world on any connection. Picture an inspection team in multiple locations working and collaborating with perfect, real-time picture and sound.

Solution

An industrial solution for remote inspections

The hardware and software required to effectively conduct accurate remote inspections is all contained in your Harvest solution. Infinity Wearwolf is software that can easily be pre-loaded onto an array of industrial headsets including those developed by RealWear, Iristick and others. The headset output can be transmitted anywhere in the world with the bandwidth optimisation technology of the Infinity Nodestream portable satellite gateway. The solution features an industrial-grade architecture with built-in redundancy across multiple servers and data centres for outstanding reliability, and all data is sent over ultra secure point-to-point encrypted (P2PE) connections, above military grade. 

Our encoding software for wearable devices allows UAV operators to be connected live back to base for simultaneous review and decision making.

The portable satellite gateway enables livestreaming from the field by optimising the available satellite bandwidth to deliver HD video and data.

Optimise and allocate your bandwidth with our app to precisely provision available bandwidth to the operations, devices, or users who need it most.

Add Infinity AVR2 for team collaboration

When paired with the AVR2, the Nodestream can provide point-to-cloud secure video distribution for further collaboration and expansion.

Add RIS to inspect remote operations from anywhere

Harvest’s Remote Inspection System (RIS) allows you to view your operations from a control centre. By livestreaming multiple channels of HD video, audio, and data securely to your monitoring system, you can efficiently and effectively manage operations anywhere in the world—on land, in the air, or at sea.

The RIS system enables multiple video channels to be fed to each monitor, giving you as much coverage and flexibility on as many screens as you need. With the RIS system, you can be sure you have the complete visibility and control you need to manage your remote inspections.

Use cases

Marine surveying

With HD livestreamed video, the marine surveyor can operate safely and far more efficiently than ever before. Crew members or clients can transmit 30 frames-per-second HD video, hi-res images, and data in real-time from vessels anywhere in the world via a satellite connection.

Fugro takes complete control of their bandwidth everywhere they operate

Fugro takes complete control of their bandwidth everywhere they operate

Fugro, the world’s leading Geo-data specialist, had reached the operational ceiling of its available bandwidth for remote surveying and inspection. Harvest optimised Fugro’s existing network capacity to allow ~80% more video throughput. We also enabled variable bandwidth control and eight video feeds where there used to be just one. Fugro now has the remote capability required to support all its remote surveying needs.

“Multiple modes for bandwidth let us support our operations with absolute precision.”

Remote Pipeline Inspection

Land-based surveys can now be conducted on infrastructure such as pipelines with only one technician in the field. With a Wearwolf-equipped video headset, the wearer can livestream HD video over satellite to the rest of the surveying team anywhere in the world. The headset enables real-time guidance and review, and makes remote inspection a viable alternative to costly physical surveys.

Chevron saves $100K using higher-quality video for remote inspection

Chevron saves $100K using higher-quality video for remote inspection

COVID restrictions required Chevron to switch to remote inspections in order to conduct its critical maintenance survey of its Australian plant and infrastructure.

Harvest provided Chevron with real-time, high-quality, and simultaneous live-streaming video and voice capabilities. This connected contract surveyors wearing hardhat-mounted cameras in Australia, with specialised engineers in Houston, USA. Infrastructure was inspected thoroughly and critical maintenance data was captured and recorded with a complete audit trail.

“Seeing remotely what the surveyor sees, with direction from specialist engineers in the US and Perth, is outstanding.”
