Precise communications are key to coordinating any successful video shoot, especially when it comes to underwater cinematography. With its own set of challenges, it is vitally  important for the entire crew to be able to hear you underwater.

OCEANEARS Patriot Acoustic System works perfectly for underwater filming. Our speaker allows a crew to hear voice instruction from on land or an alarm up to a 100 meter range and 30 meter depth.  This allows for immediate direction and communication for more precise camera work and cuts down on re-takes and editing.

The speaker can also be used as play-back for music to achieve lip-sync on music videos. Used by McLeod, underwater Director of Photography who has a long resume of underwater contributions to films including National Geographic, BBC TV and the Discovery Channel, our products are proven effective.
