How Chasing Coral was filmed using Raspberry Pi and Arduino

Published By

Arrow Electronics interviewed View into the Blue to see how they made a custom underwater camera solution to help film the powerful Netflix documentary Chasing Coral.

View into the Blue is an underwater camera company that specializes in making underwater webcams with a proprietary self-cleaning technology that eliminates algae and microorganisms. In one of their most recent projects, they worked with the film team of the acclaimed Netflix documentary Chasing Coral to capture under-water time-lapse photographs and video of coral. To do so, View into the Blue utilized off-the-shelf components such as an Arduino Pro Mini, a Raspberry Pi 3, relays and linear actuators to create a completely custom camera system that lasted four months underwater!

Check out how the Chasing Coral team and View into the Blue were able to capture some of the most difficult videos filmed for the Chasing Coral documentary.
