Firmware update 4.0 for XQ: Image Boost and User Mode.

Firmware update 4.0 for XQ: Image Boost and User Mode.

Firmware 4.0 for XQ: New observation mode and image detail boost, expanded range of icon brightness settings.

Due to the overwhelming amount of requests and popularity of XP 4.0 firmware update, we've decided to roll-out a similar firmware update for XQ users.

Image detail boost – a new function that increases the contour sharpness of the heated objects for a hefty image detail boost giving you an unprecedented level of image clearness and sharpness allowing you to identify objects even more confidently.

After the update, don't forget to turn this new feature ON in the main menu. Mind, that Image Detail Boost shows its best colours in conditions of high temperature differences. Also it is important to mention, that impact on the image enhancement will not be as significant as in XP series due to lower sensor resolution, but will be felt quite a bit.

User mode – the purpose of different observation modes is to offer most suitable settings depending on the nature conditions. With firmware 4.0 we bring a fourth option the User mode. This development is a direct result of feedback and engagement from our customers and will be most enjoyed by advanced users who like to have more control on the setup of their device. The new observation mode, that allows you to select and save your personal preferences based on pre-existing observation modes (Rocks, Forest, Identification), contrast and brightness settings. You can tweak each of the three settings to suit your conditions most and once it is saved, the settings will remain as set even after switching back from other observation modes or turning the device off. You can modify the user mode through easy selection of settings in the quick menu.

Icon brightness settings – the range for the brightness of icons you see in the menu was increased, this allows to dim down the brightness even more, for comfortable viewing in conditions of really dark night and increase it for those really bright days.

As mentioned, this firmware is only available for XQ series products:

  • Accolade XQ and Accolade LRF XQ
  • Helion XQ
  • Trail XQ and Trail LRF XQ

Firmware comes together with a number of minor bug fixes and performance enhancing changes.
