Multi-purpose design

With dual cameras, users can choose between optical and thermal camera modes ideal for meeting extreme applications. The integrated thermal imaging camera provides infrastructure health analysis and other real-time information while the 13MP optical camera provides HD video and images. What’s more, the Cube 800 has an integrated light ring and laser pointer which ensures high-quality visuals.

The magnetic auto-latch mount provides the user with an easy and secure way to attach the Cube 800 to a hardhat or other headband accessory. Furthermore, the versatile design allows for hands-free, handheld, or monopod use to capture images or videos in hard to reach places.
Flexible Usage

Share live video and images

Coupled with the HD imaging capabilities is the Cube 800 sharing facility. Whether capturing a live image or video it can, in turn, be shared live during Onsight collaboration sessions or instead shared offline to securely store images and recordings onboard with the 48GB internal storage.

For remote Onsight collaboration, simply pair the CUBE 800 to an Onsight Connect enabled mobile device such as the Smart-Ex® 02 for remote mentoring and monitoring.

During a live Onsight session, remote users can control the camera’s settings including lighting, zoom, and camera modes to allow for a completely hands-free experience for on-site workers.
