Librestream Announces the Onsight Cube, First Multi-Purpose Industrial Wearable Designed For Remote Mentoring in Ex-Rated Environments
Integrated HD Optical and Thermal Imaging Cameras provide in-depth analysis of complex assets in the field
January 24, 2018, Winnipeg, Canada – Librestream expands its powerful Onsight collaborative platform with the launch of the Onsight Cube. The Cube is an industrial EX-rated multi-purpose wearable designed for safe operation in the world’s most difficult environments.
“In discussions with our industrial customers and partners, we identified a large market opportunity for a multi-purpose wearable that enables remote assistance of complex assets in the field. In collaboration with a lead customer and mobility vendor specialized in hazardous locations, we’ve designed a Zone 1 certified industrial wearable for use in the world’s toughest locations,” shared Kerry Thacher, CEO Librestream.
Optimized for inspecting, diagnosing and troubleshooting complex assets, field workers can pair the Cube to a smartphone, tablet or smartglasses and immediately share thermal imaging visuals and HD video with remote experts. Its versatile design allows workers to perform up-close inspections with its hand-held mode, wear securely for hands-free collaboration, or attach to a monopod for hard to reach visuals.
Highlights of the Onsight Cube include:
- Integrated HD optical and thermal imaging cameras
- Rugged and Zone 1 EX-certified models
- Flexible design enabling hand-held, head-worn and monopod use
- Remote mentoring via an Onsight Connect enabled smartphone, tablet or smartglasses
- Wearable accessories that contemplate the safety and hands-free needs of industrial workers
During a live Onsight session, remote experts can control the Cube’s light, zoom, and camera modes. This remote control allows workers to have a completely hands-free experience with live audio feedback and the ability to view visual feedback on the Onsight Connect enabled mobile device.
“The Cube is another example of Librestream’s commitment to delivering a complete platform for the Industrial and Mobile worker. We recognize that these workers require both software and specialized hardware to meet their needs in the field. The Cube is a significant leap forward in hazardous-location collaboration. This new capability now enables use cases that were previously impossible to implement,” explained Thacher.
