IMCA Revises Digital Video Document

The International Marine Contractors Association (IMCA), which now has over 400 offshore, marine and underwater engineering member companies in 47 countries, is presently revising its Digital Video Offshore guidance document first published in September 2005.

The current version, says IMCA technical adviser Nick Hough, still serves a very useful purpose and remains popular with contractors and clients alike for its clarification of requirements, tenders, expectations and project deliverables.

But technology and practice have since moved on with significant advances in techniques and practice. Moreover, Hough adds, more advanced products are now available, with clients experiencing altogether newer and different requirements, particularly in areas such as data delivery and storage.

Changes in practice and a review of new products will form part of the new review which is being carried out by a group of digital video specialists from IMCA members in its Offshore Survey, Remote Systems and ROV and Diving Divisions. 

The revision will also include case studies showing how new techniques are being implemented, both offshore and at the point of delivery to clients. The revised document is expected to be ready for publication towards the end of next March.  Meanwhile, the current version remains available for members at a cost of £10 and £30 for non-members.
