If you think you may have spotted Inuktun’s Spectrum 90™ pan-tilt-zoom camera while watching the season premiere of History Channel’s television show, The Curse of Oak Island — you’re right. The show’s producers contacted Inuktun directly for a remote visual inspection camera to explore the 235 foot borehole, known as borehole 10-X, to determine whether there was a maze of underground treasure tunnels on Oak Island.
Working with a turnkey Spectrum 90™ system, underground visualization experts lowered the drop camera into the borehole by its umbilical cable. After reviewing the live images from the camera, a junction filled with debris was found to be unfit for diver exploration. The camera also gave a false alarm of gold found, and confirmed the location of a pillar noted years before.
Catch Inuktun’s multi-mission, modular technology live in action online here. The whole episode is quite interesting, but you can always skip to 27:25 if you’re short on time and want to see the Spectrum 90™ camera system make its on-screen appearance!
