The VideoRay Deep Blue XE 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 XE is depth rated to 305 m (1000 ft). Standard features that go beyond those offered on the Pro III XE include the Professional Performance Package (for superior operation) and the GTO - Greater Thrust Option. Like the Pro III XE, the Deep Blue XE is also PC computer control enabled, allowing operators to control the Deep Blue XE using wireless game controllers. The Deep Blue XE can even be controlled by software applications or remotely via a network.

The Deep Blue XE can easily accommodate 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. The Tether Deployment System (TDS) is included for quick coiling and recoiling of the tether.
