The Longest Swim 2016 with Ben Lecomte
Starting summer 2016, Ben Lecomte will try to become the first person to swim across the Pacific Ocean. He became the first person to swim across the Atlantic Ocean in 1998. After some much needed time out of the water Ben is jumping back in to undertake this incredible 5,500 mile swim across the Pacific Ocean. Dotworkz has teamed up with Ben in order to capture every moment from on board the ship with several camera angles. They say no test is greater than that of the sea. And with that in mind these Dotworkz camera housings, with its latest BASH™ IP68 enclosure, gets the toughest test of all – 8 months at sea! All of the elements will be thrown at these housings. Good luck to you Ben Lecomte.
The initial planning for video streaming and recording was a success. More system development is needed but the foundation has been laid to capture this record breaking swim across the Pacific Ocean. Seen here is Ben Lecomte (Swimmer for the Longest Swim) and Will Ferris from Dotworkz Systems known for its extreme environment IP68 protected camera housings.

With Ben planning to swim on either side of the boat depending on wave/weather conditions, the planning has begun for how to best mount the HD cameras in their protected housings. This project will include: D2 Tornado series enclosures for Pan-Tilt-Zoom cameras by Axis and Sony; BASH All-Pro PoE series enclosures for all Axis mini dome cameras; BASH G-Pro series enclosures for all GoPro Hero 4 cameras; and Xero 2.0 NVR for recording all of astonishing footage to come.
