"The Paralenz rental camera is simple to use and by making it available to rent, more underwater explorers can capture their vacation memories without making a permanent investment,"

The heart of the Paralenz experience is the Paralenz App. When consumers rent the camera, they download the free app, which offers a dive log, media library and multiple sharing options, as well as "TheOceanBase,"
"Our goal was to develop a fun and functional app for Paralenz camera users," said Peter Thiell, chief technology officer. "It's the hub where you save your underwater recordings, geek out over dive statistics and get inspired by other divers' uploaded dive footage from around the world."
Rental customers' recorded footage is private and secure, and is available for download from the cloud for up to three months after the rental. Video assets can be edited in the Paralenz App and easily shared with friends, family or to social media.
A Camera with a Higher Purpose
Every dive shared on TheOceanBase via the Paralenz App contributes valuable ocean data — conductivity, temperature, depth and geolocation — to Paralenz's conservation partner Coral Restoration Foundation, in Key Largo, Florida.
"We are excited at the possibilities presented by this relationship with Paralenz, and with every diver using a Paralenz camera," said Amelia Moura, science program manager at Coral Restoration Foundation. "This kind of huge, user-generated, real-time data resource could add incredible value to our restoration efforts, supporting our monitoring strategy and potentially helping us as we evolve our coral restoration strategies over the coming years."
