"At Everest VIT, we have made it our continual goal to develop the most technologically advanced, simple to use tools that answer our customers' needs and help solve real-world inspection problems," said Bruce A. Pellegrino, President and CEO of Everest VIT. "Since our customers conduct inspections where image quality, safety and security are vital, we provide them with the tools to best view, record, compare and measure their areas of responsibility, whether it be aircraft engines, power plant heat exchangers, process piping or covert surveillance. The VideoProbe XL PRO Plus is designed for those customers who require enhanced digital video and image storage as part of their inspections."
The VideoProbe XL PRO Plus system will accept any storage capacity size Type I CompactFlash (CF) card, now available with up to 4GB capacity. The XL PRO Plus features the ability to record digital still images and MPEG2 or MPEG1 video either on its internal 32MB flash memory or on the removable CF cards. Like earlier XL PRO systems, the ergonomic hand-piece not only provides a high-resolution, color LCD screen for view and playback, but also allows one-handed operation of the joystick to provide All-Way® camera articulation and menu control. The XL PRO Plus also offers users the capability to stream digital video directly to a personal computer via its USB streaming video port.
The XL PRO Plus is available in all XL PRO probe diameters - 3.9mm, 5.0mm, 6.1mm, 7.3mm and 8.4mm.
