New DVD Magazine Launches

Designed to fill the gap between online and print-based diving magazines, FATHOM is a biennial (twice per year) DVD-Magazine. Intended as a complement to other formats, rather than a replacement, FATHOM showcases diving from around the globe.

Additional sections feature the best in underwater filmmaking and photography as well as a dedicated section to the growing sport of freediving. An environmental section provides information on the latest developments in ocean management as well as marine biology articles.

Utilising the power of the DVD format, FATHOM also includes an interactive DIVEPLANNER™ which helps divers to plan where to go and dive.

Issue One features location reports from Hawaii, Tanzania and the Marshall Islands. The location reports are designed to give divers an idea of the diving and facilities on offer, while still leaving lots of experiences to be uncovered.

Each report has its own focus, which might encompass local history, endemic marine life, local wrecks and tech diving, or simply beautiful underwater images. The reports are 10-20 minutes in duration and intended as standalone films. FISH ID subtitles help the rusty diver to remember those species names.

World record freedives, award winning films and photography, and environmental features all contribute to over two hours of stunning content spread over two discs.
