Multi-Vu System instantly adds underwater video to your sonar unit or LCD

Tuesday, November 26, 2013

CROSSLAKE, MN – Sonar fish-finding units show us amazingly realistic underwater images. And yet, anglers still find themselves wanting visual-verification. Is it a bass or a bullhead? How big? Any crappies hiding in that brushpile? Bass buried in the grass?

An underwater camera answers those questions. And now, thanks to a new device from Aqua-Vu, anglers can see all perspectives of the underwater world on a single screen. The Multi-Vu Underwater Camera Adaptor System instantly adds underwater video functionality to your boat’s sonar, or the TV set inside your ice fishing shelter.





Actually, the world’s foremost underwater camera company has owned the technology to make this product possible for years. Only in recent seasons, however, have sonar manufacturers engineered advanced LCD displays with high refresh rates capable of playing live color video. Coupled with the Multi-Vu System, any sonar or video monitor equipped with an RCA video input can be instantly transformed into a crystal clear underwater viewer.


“The Multi-Vu system provides a turnkey solution for connecting an underwater camera directly to your boat’s main sonar unit or the TV monitor in your wheeled ice fishing house,” says Ben Gibbs, president of Aqua-Vu. “Real-time underwater video gives anglers a superior view of their fishing area, and also provides endless entertainment. Multi-Vu allows anglers to utilize their sonar screen or any other LCD viewer to see exactly what it looks like down below.”


Available in two versions, Multi-Vu can be purchased as a complete camera system or camera adaptor only. The Multi-Vu Underwater Viewing Adaptor System (MSRP $299.99) features a high-res (600 lines of resolution) Aqua-Vu Color Underwater Video Camera with adjustable LED lighting, 75-feet of 200-pound test cable with Cable Wrap and waterproof Multi-Vu Control Box. The Multi-Vu Control Box only (MSRP $99.99) includes a 12-volt power supply cable, video-out, on/off switch and camera light dimmer; it is compatible with Aqua-Vu, Marcum and Vexilar underwater cameras.


“Anglers in boats can now monitor underwater video and sonar together on one screen,” notes Gibbs. “They can instantly compare the different views and get the best possible perspective of the underwater world. And while fishing in a wheeled fish house, anglers can monitor all their lines on their big screen television. We call it the Aqua-Vu Channel—underwater reality TV—it’s always live and entertaining, and reruns aren’t allowed.”
