Although HiDef's unique technology was initially developed for the renewables industry it is also ideal for supporting habitat and wildlife conservation.
Aerial video imaging offers a flexible method for wildlife population survey and behavioural observations both on and offshore.
HiDef's global experience includes contributing to the British Antarctic Survey's major fur seal census in South Georgia.
All offshore bird surveys now also identify any marine mammal sightings. Most of these would not have been identifiable by boat based observation.
This sample clip has been significantly compressed and reduced in size for web display.
The actual moving images recorded are of substantially higher resolution and greater surface coverage.
