The Abyssal OS Overlay is a software-based HD Digital Video Overlay, Media Gallery and Digital Video Recorder.

It offers an intuitive and totally configurable HD Digital Video Overlay that superimposes telemetry, text and graphics on top of real-time video, coupled with a Media Manager for screenshot and image management, with an optional Digital Video Recorder system.

The software based nature of Abyssal OS Overlay allows it to recognize and convert every type of telemetry and video formats, making it the most comprehensive system in the market.

Abyssal OS Overlay is already prepared to be scaled up and used as an interface with the Abyssal OS, the most advanced Visualization System for ROVs currently in the market.
