When Höegh LNG needed IECEx and ATEX cameras for taking images and videos onboard their "Independence" FSRU (Floating Storage and Regassification Unit) LNG import terminal, they wanted for the best camera available. They chose the Gravity X Intrinsically Safe Camera

November 01, 2015

The Gravity X Intrinsically Safe Camera was recently used for shooting images and video in the EX zone 1 areas onboard the “Independence” FSRU in Lithuania. The reason for choosing the Gravity X was simple. Höegh LNG wanted the best EX zone 1 video camera ever made. The Gravity X is a revolution for hazardous areas, introducing a wide range of brand new, smart features and never-before-seen image quality. It allows the user to record images in full HD, 1080p 30 fps for many hours. The easy to use user interface and compact form factor made the video shoot a success. The time lapse functionality of the Gravity X was also cleverly used. Watch the resulting video below. NB!
