Any type of electronic camera that is located underwater in order to collect and display images that then plays images on a television set can be referred to as underwater television. It must be packaged in a waterproof housing. The underwater camera may be packaged with its own recording device, or it can be attached to a television that is located on a ship, in a laboratory, or at a remote site. In the latter case, the images by the camera are called real-time images, as they are available at the same time that the camera is recording them. An underwater television may be used for sport, ocean exploration, industrial applications, or military purposes. Common imaged subjects are animals, coral reefs, underwater shipwrecks, and underwater structures such as piers, bridges, and offshore oil platforms.
