ANTARCTICA--Extreme CCTV, a camera manufacturer, has partnered with the scientific community. The company's MX4 Mechanical Filter LXR image sensors are being used to capture video surveillance of eruption sequences at Mt. Erebus, Antarctica's most active volcano. The Antarctic MX4 has been specially enhanced for volcanic imaging capabilities.
Video is then transmitted via 2.4 and 5.8 GHz wireless links to a remote monitoring station and then relayed to the Geochronology Research Laboratory in New Mexico.
