The VideoRay Pro 4 incorporates the latest in small ROV design and technology making it the most advanced, capable, and versatile small ROV on the market today. The basic VideoRay Pro 4 ROV components include the submersible, integrated control panel, and tether. A variety of optional “plug and play” accessories are available including a manipulator arm and high definition imaging sonar
SUBMERSIBLE
The VideoRay Pro 4 submersible is easily the most recognizable component of the system. The submersible houses the camera, lighting, internal sensors, and can carry other optional accessories including a manipulator arm, hull crawler, high definition camera, and sonar. Its sleek, hydrodynamically optimized design, small size, powerful thrusters, and minimal mass allow the Pro 4 to complete missions that no other vehicle could perform in conditions that no other vehicle would attempt.

CONTROL PANEL
The integrated control panel contains everything you need to pilot the ROV. The control panel provides power, communications and a video interface between the ROV and the operator through the tether. The integrated computer runs VideoRay Cockpit software to give the operator control over the ROV. The panel also contains power outlets, USB ports, and may accept accessories such as a second display monitor and LYYN real-time video enhancement.
