iMetrum supply video gauge measurement equipment for use in engineering both academically and in industry. To expand their customer base, IMetrum wanted to be able to use their equipment in bad weather. 

Fresh Design Works designed a product to protect equipment that would work also with a range of the camera units and lenses used by iMetrum. In addition, projected sales figures limited manufacturing to processes suitable for small batches.

Equipment that iMetrum supply being used in the field. Precision video gauge equipment is very sensitive to moisture, and is also very expensive.
Functional prototype field testing
Telescopic casing accomodates for various camera setups including larger image sensors and telephoto lenses up to 300mm
Lenses can be adjusted via access from below
Clockwise from top left: Quick release rear cap can be removed easily for rapid setup and adjustment, which is crucial in inclement weather. Rear cap catch mechanism also doubles a cable guide to prevent cables getting in the way during operation. Detail view of rear cap latch mechanism with 'Press' engraved into it.
Aesthetic prototype to mock up colour scheme and visually review design.
