Established in 2003, Iris Innovations set out to source, develop and manufacture a range of on board camera equipment especially for the marine market. We put all our efforts into understanding the idiosyncracies of such a specialist and demanding market and designed a range of purpose built cameras, switchers and anciliary equipment.

In 2004, following a regrettable incident with a shore power lead and a Princess Motor Yacht, we realised there was a real need to be able to carry out imediate in depth searches of subsurface features such as running gear, bow-thrusters, anodes etc, and so we developed the Scubar submersible Video Inspection System, which is used to this day around the world by marine professionals, boat-owners, the military and emergency services, charter operators, surveyors… the list is endless!

Since their inception, Iris have been at the heart of the emergence of CCTV equipment in the marine industry – even before the large chart plotter manufacturers added video integration to their products. Iris have headquarters in the UK and in Florida, and sell their products through an established network of marine electronics dealers and distributors.

Our experience has enabled Iris to confidently pioneer the design and manufacture of many of the most popular specialist marine cameras and equipment on the market today.

From purpose built digital video recorders to wireless roaming cameras, Iris are always able to come up with that ‘something different’ that only happens by listening carefully to the feedback of marine professionals, military and emergency service personnel and boat owners from all over the world.
