OTS Emmy Award Winning Technology

In 1991, founders Michael Pelissier and Jerry Peck were presented with a National Emmy Award for the impact underwater communications had on filmmaking. Never seen before underwater communications capabilities allowed for real time audio to be recorded on camera. The use of underwater communications also allowed for seamlessly underwater directing from all aspects of the production including: diver to talent, diver to diver, and diver to top side.

The Emmy Award Winning documentary was an ESPN project titled, “Expedition Earth,” starring Peter Benchly and Stan Waterman, filmed at Cocos Island with underwater cameraman Marty Snyderman and underwater sound cameraman Michael Pelissier. This notable achievement led Hollywood to establish OTS as the “go to” manufacturer for all their unique and custom needs. Today, OTS remains the number one choice for film & T.V. productions.

Great White Sharks Documentary

Over the three days of intense filming, things stayed smooth rolling. When you’re way out there in the middle of nowhere, and you’ve got a crew out there with the clock ticking, it’s important that your gear is working correctly. And it did. We got ahead of schedule, finishing everything we needed to do and more. I’m glad I made the choice with OTS because according to the captain, people don’t have good experiences with the alternatives.
