Healthy seas! nanocosmos contributes to raising awareness of plastic in the ocean

nanoStream Software and nanoStream Cloud were used for streaming live massive operation to remove fishing nets from the world ocean

On June 8th, nanocosmos supported the first underwater Live Stream: a celebration to the World Oceans Day, when a group of volunteer divers completed an underwater mission to remove fishing nets from the depths of the Aegean Sea in Greece.

The operation was organized by Healthy Seas together with Ghost Fishing, Cousteau Divers and Atlantis Oia. The subsea technology was provided by Seascape, Dutch subsea technology company, that chose nanoStream Software for live encoding, and nanoStream Cloud, as live streaming partner. “Carrying out a first of its kind two-way communication underwater live stream was a very complex operation which we were able to complete successfully due to the tremendous efforts a truly amazing team” said Pascal van Erp, Founder of Ghost Fishing.

“The initiative is fantastic and we are happy to help raising awareness for the amount of plastic in the ocean” said Oliver Lietz, nanocosmos CEO. The mission was streamed live all over the world for educational purposes, and ended up collecting an approximately 150 meters fishing net. “ We hope this action will help people in Santorini and all over the world realize the critical state of the Ocean and unite to stop its destruction” said Pierre-Yves Cousteau, one of the organizers.

The live stream was available worldwide in ultra-low latency due to the integration of H5Live Player, an unique technology for delivery and playback on any device and HTML5 browsers. “Interactivity is important in any content, and engaging the audience plays an important role to achieve the success. nanoStream Cloud is being wisely used in interactive use cases where every second literally counts. This project proposed by Healthy Seas just confirms that nowadays every use case needs ultra-low latency”, said Oliver.
