Rochester, N.Y. February 21, 2018 – Gradient Lens Corporation (GLC) has announced the launch of the Hawkeye® VIR Infrared Video Borescope (www.gradientlens.com/VIR). The Hawkeye V IR can operate using either traditional white (visible) light, or infrared (invisible) light allowing use, without detection, even in completely dark rooms.
“We believe the V IR will be an extremely valuable, and affordable, asset to law enforcement, border security, and search and rescue team,” said Dr. Douglas Kindred, President and Chief Scientist of Gradient Lens Corporation. “The V IR can allow law enforcement and rescue teams to see inside dark rooms, or dark, hidden compartments in motor vehicles, and much more.”
Hawkeye V IR Infrared Video Borescopes utilize invisible 940nm infrared light so valuable in covert surveillance. The ultra-sensitive camera gives a clear view up to 14 feet away. Hawkeye V IR Video Borescopes ship with both a white light source and an infrared light source.
Hawkeye V IR Infrared Video Borescopes are lightweight, fully portable, finely constructed, and deliver clear, high-resolution photos and video. The 5” LCD monitor allows clear viewing, and the intuitive controls provide photo and video capture at the touch of a button. V IR’s are available in 8.4mm diameter and either 1.5 or 3 meter lengths. Prices start at $8995.
