GeoVISION™ Borehole Video Camera Systems
VIEWING &
RECORDING
One may use any TV monitor (nTSC) that accepts an analog signal to view and any VCR to record
from the GeoVISION™ video and audio outputs. Sunshades are standard on all GeoVISIOn™
monitors. There are several types of video to USB adapters available from electronic retailers, They
are not stocked by MPI. These devices allow one to view with and record directly to a computer.
BUILT IN &
SUPPLEMENTAL
LIGHTS
The Super 8 Light and Adjustable Super 8 Light provide supplemental light for use in boreholes,
shafts, mines, and caves. Versatile brackets allow these lights to be attached at many different
places on the GeoVISIOn™ system. Supplemental off camera light also improves the quality of the
image by increasing the subject texture and by reducing glare. The two Super 8 Lights are bright
and are recommended for large boreholes, shafts, and mines.
Eight high brightness LEDs are built into the standard stainless steel cameras. This camera
also has a camera lights on and off circuit for use with supplemental lights. This switch helps
GeoVISION™ obtain some of the best videos possible in poor quality water.

VIEWING MODES
• GeoVISION™ system cameras are usually lowered into the borehole viewing down. In small
and moderate size bores this is adequate. When one wants to view to the side or back up the
borehole, or view into to a crevice or mine, there are several other choices.
• Motorized Pan and Tilt option with the Jr and Standard cameras. One may view 360 degrees by
panning and tilt up and down 170 degrees with the motorized pan and tilt attachment. This option
allows one to view in any direction with the operation of the joystick on the control panel.
• One can manually pan and tilt with the Jr and Standard cameras by using a pipe string and
the GeoVISIOn™ supplied manual head tilting assembly. The operator can view in any direction
including up by pulling on the power cable and by turning the pipe. All GeoVISIOn™ systems
have a threaded pipe-fitting, ready for attaching a user supplied pipe string. The camera can
be pushed or pulled past obstructions or pushed and pulled horizontally or overhead with a pipe
string. Pipe strings can be made from many different materials.
• One can rotate the side viewing camera of the Dual Scan micro. It has twenty-one high
brightness LED’s in three groups.
• The Motorized Mirrors for the old micro & nano cameras, allow one to view to the side 360 degrees.
• An Optional Side-looking Mirror is available with the Standard and Jr cameras to allow side
viewing in small diameter boreholes.
• Camera Lights On-Off Circuitry- This switch allows the eight LEDs in the Stainless Steel
Standard camera and the 21 LEDs in the Dual Scan micro camera to be turned on or off. Using
the supplemental lights reduces glare from suspended particles in the water, increases texture
of the subject, and improves depth perception by using indirect light. When the water quality is
good the built in camera lights should be turned on to provide fill light. The combination of built-in
and supplemental lights achieves the best images in clear water. Generally, the best videos are
obtained by using brighter off camera lights such as the Adjustable Super Eight Light.

CAMERA SPECIFICATIONS
**Dual-Scan micro camera
The Dual-Scan micro camera has three sets of lights that can be turned on and off independently from switches
on the control panel. The upper recessed ring light has nine brightness LEDs that provide light for the side viewing
camera as well as indirect light for both cameras. The middle three LEDs provide direct light for the side viewing
camera. The lower recessed ring light has nine brightness LEDs that provide light for the down viewing camera as
well as indirect light for both cameras. The combination of three switchable sets of lights provides the best overall
lighting of any borehole camera. This lighting system is especially effective in producing high quality videos that
show shadow and texture. This Dual-Scan micro lighting is better than other systems in poor quality water due to
the use of in LEDs that are placed a few inches away from the lens, providing indirect lighting and giving the user
the flexibility to select different combinations of light sources.

BOREHOLE CAMERA
CAMERA SPECIFICATIONS
Special features of GeoVISION cameras
- The GeoVISION Standard stainless steel cameras have camera lights on/off circuitry for use with supplemental lights for
improved visibility in poor quality water.
- All GeoVISION cameras are interchangeable when used with the GeoVISION™ Deluxe system
- All GeoVISION cameras have over voltage and heat protection.
- The GeoVISION stainless steel cameras have recessed attachment points allowing the camera to fit in smaller boreholes.
- The GeoVISION black and white cameras have a lux rating of .01 at F2. This ultra low light feature means that even in very
low light these cameras will produce a good image where other borehole cameras under the same lighting conditions will
not have a usable image.
Recommendations for large boreholes, mines, caves, tunnels, tanks, pipes, caissons, and other voids.
Any combination of these items listed below will help get a better image at greater distances:
1. Black and white ultra low light camera
2. Motorized pan and tilt option for depths to 2000 feet or the manual pan and tilt that is standard with all JR and Standard
cameras for use at depths less than 200 feet. The 200 foot depth is a mater of personal choice. The manual system becomes
more difficult to operate at greater depths.
3. Supplemental lighting
Factors that determine the quality of an image from a borehole camera
1. Water clarity
2. Distance to subject
3. Amount of light and lux rating of camera. The GeoVISION black and white cameras are all ultra low light and are
the best borehole cameras for viewing distant objects.
4. Location of light in relation to camera and subject. For example suspended particles may reflect light from on
camera lights directly into the camera lens. Supplemental lights off camera reduce this reflection and provide
texture to the subject so that it can be comprehended better.
5. Stability and location of camera in borehole. This is best achieved by the use of adjustable centralizers.
6. Angle of view between camera and subject. Tilting cameras provide by far the most options by allowing the
operator to view the subject at different angles
7. Type of lens - A wide angle lens such as the 2.45 allows a better view of the borehole when viewing down and
provides a better view of close subjects. The 3.6 lens provides a larger image of distant objects but is not as good
when viewing close objects.
