Dive Around The Clock is an annual fundraiser for Seattle Children’s Hospital. This is a 24 hour “dive-a-thon” event held by divers in the Puget Sound area of Washington State. For our July 2010 program, Ocean Technology Systems was asked if they would assist us in this event. DATC was planning to do a live underwater webcast direct to Seattle Children’s Hospital. OTS was very helpful by supplying both a Guardian FFM and a MK2-DCI Diver communication unit. The quality of the comms with the Guardian and the MK2 was superb! We were able to run our live streaming webcast for over 2 hours. The patients and their families watched and listened to our underwater show. The immediate report from the hospital was how very clear the divers audio was as it streamed over the internet.
For our July 2011 fundraising event, we are planning a new and improved live webcast. This year, we are using two Guardian Full-Face Masks along with the MK2-DCI comm unit all wired to a hi-speed network and an audio PA system to allow folks on the surface to hear the show too! Thanks OTS! We appreciate the support for our unique underwater program. Our webpage is: www.divearoundtheclock.com
