The major obstacle faced by the underwater environment system is the extreme loss of color and contrast when submerged to any significant depth whereby the image quality produced is low. The studies can be easily done by developing the prototype that may imitate the underwater environment. In order to develop the prototype, suitable lighting system are used where it act as an imitator for underwater environment with different depth. Next the color option that use for the imitator prototype should be suitable for underwater lighting system. By using both suitable lighting system and color option for the system, this prototype might be able to produce image that can be comparable with the actual environment. The water tank is the best choice as the medium for imitating and it’s attached with the red curtain in order to create the environment without any unwanted lighting source. The underwater flood light is use for the lighting system and creates the scenery of the lighting underwater environment. The brightness of the light can be adjustable by adjusting the input voltage. In order to capture and record the image of the imitated underwater, the underwater camera and recordable receiver display is used. Lastly, since the underwater environment has noise the automatic pump is applied to create the ambient noise. The result shows that the appropriate combination of color and the brightness based on different depth it may produce the precise hue and saturation with the actual environment system.
