Gates new FX1/Z1 High Definition Housing Deployed Around the World

Gates Underwater Products, the global leader in reliable underwater housings, is pleased to announce ongoing deliveries of the new FX1/Z1 housing, which began in early April.

The Gates FX1/Z1 housing is classically Gates: reliable fingertip mechanical controls, durable ‘bulletproof’ machined aluminum, depth rating to 300 feet / 92 meters, and 2-year renewable warranty.  But the FX1/Z1 also represents a new level in control, convenience, and customization to meet specific client needs.

Further, Gates ongoing partnership with Fathom Imaging enables the clearest, sharpest, distortion free undersea images — and categorically necessary with HDV, a format with 4.5 times greater resolution than DV.   Anything less than the Gates/Fathom combination is a compromise to image quality.

The FX1/Z1 optionally includes high power HID lighting from Green Force and the Gates 2.5" or 4" external color monitor.  For further information on this and other Gates products, visit
