Glossary | Night vision devices | Special features

Night vision devices can be equipped with additional functions.

More information:

Digital imaging

Digital night vision devices use a different technology, which makes the devices much cheaper.

Head mount

A head mount ensures the vision device is held steady in front of the eye. In addition, the hands are free for other tasks.

Infrared illuminator

Generates an invisible light which is detected by the night vision device. This makes it possible to see even in absolute darkness.

Overexposure protection

Protects the night vision device from bright light accidentally entering the optics.


These devices may only be exposed to moderate moisture or light drops of water.

Threaded tripod connector

This allows the device to be mounted onto a standard photographic tripod with a 1/4" camera screw.

Video output

For transfer to a TV device or a grabber.
