VideoRay Pro 4 Remotely Operated Vehicle

The world’s most popular small ROV

The VideoRay Pro 4 is one of the most advanced, capable, and versatile small ROVs on the market today. Completely computer-driven by VideoRay Cockpit, a sleek, intuitive, and powerful software platform, the Pro 4 is the most advanced ROV in its class. Its advanced technology and software platform makes it easy to incorporate advanced features such as vehicle autonomous control, the latest imaging sonar, upgraded positioning hardware and software as well as other sensors and tools. Capabilities can be added or removed with either a simple software update or a quick hardware add-on in the field—all without sending the system back to the factory.

The Pro 4 offers features designed to simplify piloting and give advance warning in the case of an issue with the vehicle. These features include:

  • 3D tilt compensated compass
  • Accelerometer
  • MEMission Specialist Gyro
  • Leak alarm
  • Internal temperature gauge
  • Real-time voltmeter
  • Depth sensor

Pro 4 Systems

The Pro 4 Ultra ROV system is a simpler, lighter version of our standard Pro 4 ROV system. The extremely portable Pro 4 Ultra control panel is about 40% lighter than the standard Pro 4 Control Panel weighing in at 8.4 kg (18.5 lbs).

The Ultra system is the perfect solution for users who only need the most basic functionality of an ROV and is perfectly suited for routine tasks such as basic visual inspections or observations in normal environments down to 305 m (1,000 ft). The Ultra is not recommended for hull crawling or high current situations.

The Ultra is compatible with accessories such as the manipulator, water sampler, laser scaler, and other similar accessories. Accessories such as sonar or the UT Thickness Gauge are not compatible with the Ultra. Users who plan to expand the VideoRay’s capabilities with accessories or complete more advanced missions are advised to consider one of our other Pro 4 configurations.

The VideoRay Pro 4 IP65 BASE is the perfect solution for ROV operators who need fail safe protection from the elements, without sacrificing the power or capability you expect from a Pro 4 ROV system.

All the technology included in the Pro 4 IP65 BASE, including connectors, provides complete ingress protection against dust and “splashes,” or low pressure water jets, from any direction.

The Pro 4 IP65 BASE features the same functions and capabilities of the Pro 4 Rugged ICB in a slightly different package. The Pro 4 IP65 BASE replaces the standard control panel and processor with equipment that meets IP65 standards, including dust and waterproof connectors. It also adds a secondary 15” daylight viewable sealed monitor, perfect for monitoring both video and accessory feeds.

The VideoRay Pro 4 main wide dynamic range color camera is located in the forward pressure hull of the ROV. The forward camera tilts vertically 160º – within the range of the LED lighting so every subject is illuminated no matter where it is viewed from. The camera offers a standard definition image at roughly 570 lines of resolution as well as wide dynamic range and backlight compensation to give you the most detailed pictures even in difficult lighting situations. The camera is optimized for underwater use and offers 0.004 lux low-light sensitivity by including automatic or manual switching between color and black and white modes.

There are more than 20 user controllable settings in the VideoRay Pro 4 ROV camera that can be managed from the control panel including digital slow shutter, digital zoom, and white balance. The Pro 4 can be equipped with either a PAL or NTSC camera depending on which video format you require.

Digital recording of still images and video is built into the control panel and can be executed with the push of a button from the hand controller. Images and video are recorded in digital format directly onto the Pro 4 computer (or an assigned external hard drive), ready for nonlinear editing, online album sharing, or DVD authoring.

VideoRay also offers externally mountable High Definition (HD) camera set-ups ranging from cost-effective, compressed HD video recorded at the source to fully uncompressed fiber-optically transmitted 1080p in just about every professional format available. Our goal is to gather the needs of the shooter and deliver the most effective HD rig for the job.
