Remote Video Inspection

Video inspection equipment in all shapes and sizes.

Remote Video Inspection (RVI) goes beyond the capabilities of traditional borescopes and pipe cameras, enabling inspection of inaccessible areas using advanced video camera systems. Also known as CCTV Inspection, RVI involves capturing imagery of internal structures, equipment, and components that may have physical constraints, safety risks, or other limitations. By utilizing video inspection cameras, you can easily locate and examine critical areas of interest without the need for extensive equipment disassembly or hazardous confined space entry. RVI offers a safe and efficient solution for comprehensive inspections, providing valuable insights into inaccessible spaces.

Remote Video Inspection

When it comes to camera inspection systems, there is a wide range of options available, from small video scopes to large robotic wheeled or tracked pipe/pipeline crawlers. The choice of technology and method depends on the specific application, including industrial drone inspections.

In North America, sewer inspection is a prevalent camera inspection application due to the extensive aging drainage infrastructure in place.

However, for industries like Oil & Gas, Power Generation, Pipeline, and others, the equipment and experience requirements for camera inspections go well beyond the basics needed for sewer camera work. At Maverick Inspection, we specialize in providing advanced camera inspection services tailored to these industries, utilizing cutting-edge technology and the expertise of our experienced technicians.

Maverick Inspection Ltd., based in Edmonton, Alberta, is a trusted leader in delivering effective solutions and pioneering new applications and technologies for remote camera inspection in various industries across Canada. Our expertise encompasses pipe inspection, pressure vessel inspection, and providing valuable turnaround support.

In addition to remote video camera systems, we integrate other cutting-edge technologies to enhance our inspection capabilities. These include ground-penetrating radar, infrared thermography, utility locating, and retrieval systems. Furthermore, we employ advanced measurement software to conduct in-depth analysis of the video inspection results, ensuring comprehensive and accurate assessments.

A video scope, fiberscope, or borescope is a versatile tool used for high-resolution inspection of tubes, pressure vessels, mechanical components, and equipment with limited accessibility. Maverick utilizes these advanced video inspection systems, which feature flexible and portable designs, high-intensity LED lighting, and articulating heads with various lenses. With diameters as small as 6 mm, they are ideal for inspecting rotating equipment, engine components, small vessels, and equipment with small inspection ports. Our video inspection systems are often complemented with measurement software for enhanced analysis and reporting capabilities.



Maverick Inspection offers advanced DVR Push Camera Inspection systems, also known as sewer pipe cameras, pipe cameras, or borescopes. These systems are specifically designed for small diameter piping, down-holes, pressure vessels, and other applications that require a rugged, push-style camera head. With various sizes and features available, our systems are versatile and cater to different inspection needs.

Our Push Camera Inspection systems are particularly useful for retrieval scenarios when robotic systems cannot access the path to foreign objects or debris. They are commonly used for piping and pipeline camera inspections. These systems provide full remote control over essential features, including panning, tilting, lens focusing, optical zoom, and light adjustments.

Additionally, our Push Camera Inspection systems offer interchangeable camera heads for different applications, making them adaptable to various environments. They are highly suitable for underwater applications, with some systems capable of operating at depths of up to 1000 feet. We also provide CSA Class 1/ Division 1 explosion-proof systems for hazardous environments, ensuring safety and compliance.

Coupled with our expertise in CAD, GIS, Geomatics, and mapping technologies, drones become powerful tools that deliver exceptional results.


Every job has it’s own unique aspects. Fill us in on the details.

What is the difference between push cameras and crawlers?

Push cameras are designed to navigate through small-diameter pipes using a flexible cable and a camera head. Crawlers, on the other hand, are robotic systems that use tracks or wheels to traverse larger pipes and perform inspections.

What types of pipes can be inspected using remote video inspections?

Remote video inspections can be conducted on a wide range of pipes, including sewer lines, drainage systems, industrial pipelines, and pressure vessels. The size and configuration of the pipe will determine the most suitable inspection method and equipment

How do remote video inspections help identify pipe issues?

By deploying a camera-equipped push camera or crawler, remote video inspections allow for real-time visual assessment of pipe conditions. This helps identify issues such as cracks, leaks, blockages, corrosion, and other forms of damage or deterioration.

Can remote video inspections capture high-quality footage?

Yes, modern push cameras and crawlers are equipped with advanced camera technology that can capture high-resolution video footage and images. This enables inspectors to closely examine pipe interiors and detect even minor defects.

Are remote video inspections suitable for confined spaces?

Remote video inspections are particularly beneficial for inspecting confined spaces such as tanks, vessels, and other enclosed structures. By using push cameras and crawlers, inspectors can access and assess these spaces without the need for physical entry, reducing risks to personnel and ensuring thorough inspections.
