A specifically assigned “Up” button in Helions will now be used to quickly switch between new observation modes in various conditions. PULSAR is constantly working on progress in the field of image processing algorithms. As a result of research and testing, the company has successfully implemented the support of the enhanced Gain mode, which significantly increases the ability to detect, recognize and identify objects in conditions of low temperature differences.
We would like to thank our fans for their input! Due to numerous requests from users of PULSAR products, the new algorithms will be implemented in the company's current product line with the release of the next software update. Optimization of gain enhancement algorithms will allow to achieve an increase in sensor performance while reducing power consumption of the device. The changes will be visible in the following observation modes: Identification, Forest, Rocks.
After the software update, the modes will be more optimally configured for work in various conditions.
Interface changes will appear in order to facilitate fast switching between observation modes. Short press of “Up” button will be used for quick switching between modes and long press will change colour palettes (in Helion and Accolade). The previously present function of this button will be transferred to the main menu of the unit.
Along with the higher quality of the screen image, the quality of the video recordings and photos will also be improved. The use of new algorithms will allow a steadier and more consistent video recording. Here is the video showing the scene shot with HELION after firmware update:
To get the software update downloaded to PULSAR device the users need to use their smartphones and install the free “Stream Vision” application from Google Play or App Store. Via “Stream Vision” every user can connect to his PULSAR device and upload the latest software updates. Firmware updates are available for riflescopes PULSAR Trail XQ/XP, monoculars Helion XQ/XP, Lexion XQ/XP and binoculars Accolade XQ/XP.
