VideoRay Pro 3 XE
Description The Pro 3 XE incorporates the features of a Pro 3, adding an integrated 15 inch display monitor that will display both video and a computer screen simultaneously in either PAL or NTSC, and a 131 ft (40 m) Performance tether extension.

The Pro 3 XE is also PC computer control enabled, allowing operators to control the Pro 3 XE using included wired or wireless game controllers with a user-supplied laptop computer. The Pro 3 XE can even be controlled by software applications or remotely via a network.

The Pro 3 XE can easily accommodate recording devices, modular instrumentation and tools such as: scanning imaging sonar for low visibility environments; manipulator for object retrieval or intervention; positioning system for exhaustive area searches; water quality sensor, metal thickness gauge, and more. Pro 3 XE units can accommodate additional neutrally buoyant, negatively buoyant, or positively buoyant tether extensions to reach up to 305 m (1,000 ft) in overall distance but limited to 152 m (500 ft) in water depth. Included is an inverter for operation using a 12 volt power source such as a car battery.
