The VideoRay Deep Blue is ideally suited for deep missions. It includes the submersible, integrated control box, 335 m (1,100 ft) of tether, manual, two watertight, rolling Pelican cases, and tool kit. The Deep Blue is depth rated to 305 m (1000 ft). Standard features that go beyond those offered on the Pro III include the Professional Performance Package (for superior operation) and SeaSprite Scanning Sonar. Like the Pro II, the Deep Blue is also PC computer control enabled, allowing operators to control the Deep Blue using wireless game controllers. The Pro III can even be controlled by software applications or remotely via a network.

The Deep Blue can accommodate 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.

The Tether Deployment System (TDS) is included for quick coiling and recoiling of the tether.
