VRTUL has experience in every category of “Underwater VR” from theme park attractions, live broadcasts, to elite multi-part natural history expeditions. We believe in developing high quality camera housings and processes from the ground up in order to collaborate with world-class non-profits, organizations, and agencies.

VRTUL camera attributes include (and are not limited to) 20k+ resolution, stereoscopic 3D, 12-bit DNG RAW, livestreaming, 1000 fps, and depth rated to over 4,000 meters. Anything is possible.
The best VR experiences aren’t developed by individuals; they happen through deeply invested working relationships across a range of technologies and industries.
