From its humble beginnings, Aqua-Vu has continuously evolved and improved, setting the pace for innovation in the underwater viewing category.
Unveiling the Legacy
For over two decades, Aqua-Vu has revolutionized underwater observation, becoming the foremost name in underwater viewing technology. Manufactured by Outdoors Insight, Inc., this Central Minnesota-based brand has led the underwater camera category since 1997 with a commitment to design, innovation, and exceptional quality. From their renowned Aqua-Vu Underwater Viewing Systems to the groundbreaking iBall Trailer Hitch Camera, Aqua-Vu continually sets the standard for aquatic exploration.
Pioneered by marine electronics and video technology expert, Jeff Zernov, and fueled by the vision of angling industry experts like the Lindners and Ted Capra, Aqua-Vu emerged as the first-ever Underwater Viewing System in 1997. Despite its early bulky and monochromatic appearance, anglers quickly recognized its potential and the advantage it brought to their fishing game.
Early-adopted by tournament bass anglers like Roland Martin and Ted Capra, and esteemed ice anglers like Dave Genz and Brian Brosdahl, Aqua-Vu's benefits were evident, enabling anglers to reveal fish species hidden from traditional sonar and make more informed lure selections.
Leading the Way into the Future
The growth of underwater viewing is now extending beyond the ice fishing community, with open-water anglers embracing Aqua-Vu's advantages in bass, walleye, and crappie fishing. The introduction of the Multi-Vu Underwater Camera Adaptor System, connecting Aqua-Vu cameras to sonar units, has gained popularity among boat-bound anglers. Moreover, the Aqua-Vu HDi Series Systems offer gimbal-mounted convenience, powered by a 12-volt system, further enhancing the underwater viewing experience.
With over a dozen design patents, including submersible video, camera housing (XD Series), and underwater lighting, Aqua-Vu continues to push the boundaries of underwater viewing technology. As part of Outdoors Insight, Aqua-Vu benefits from a parent company that has cultivated many essential advancements in the field. Whether it's the first boat-mountable HDi Series or the handheld Micro® Series, Aqua-Vu's future holds even more exciting innovations in sub-surface discovery.
