  • Wireless 5-button Remote
  • Tracking Digital e-Zoom: 2x / 4x / 8x (640x512 only)
  • Still Picture and Video Recording Capability (Mounted DVR Option)
  • Active Contrast Enhancement (ACE) - a digital "Contrast" correction that allows for a smart scene optimization based on dynamic adjustments where a variety of contrast levels occur depending on relative scene temperature.
  • Second Generation Digital Detail Enhancement (DDE) - a "Sharpness" correction that is digitally enhances the picture to present clearer imagery, significantly improves edge sharpening and further reduces image noise.
  • Smart Scene Optimization (SSO) - a fine-tuning computational correction that significantly improves an overall visual acuity for targets that have thermal signatures similar to a surrounding background.
  • Information Based Histogram Equalization (IBHEQ) - a "Sky/Sea" enhancement - information based environment dependent algorithm that automatically adjusts camera gain and excludes pixels determined to not contain critical information, specifically helpful in scenes with lots of sky or water.
  • User Controlled Manual Non Uniformity Correction/Flat-Field Correction (UCMNUC/FFC). There is a mechanical shutter between the camera sensor and the lens. This shutter is used to perform a non-uniformity correction (NUC) also known as flat-field correction (FFC. During FFC, the shutter presents a uniform temperature source to each detector element in the array. While imaging the flat-field source, the camera updates the offset correction coefficients, resulting in a more uniform image after the process is complete. All Armasight thermal imagers allow for user to manually trigger or interrupt scheduled UCMNUC/FFC function.
  • Silent Shutterless NUC™ (SSN) - In addition to user controlled manual NUC/FFC all Zeus models employ a digital supplemental non-mechanical flat-field correction that allows to extend the periods between mechanical shutter events and to further reduce image noise. SSN is always ON enhancement.
  • Works with Armasight's Enhanced Mobile Applications

Honestly, at first I was searching for something not so expensive, but after trying a few of the cheaper models, I knew that it wasn’t the quality and features I wanted to get. The Prometheus Pro is a totally different thing. Yes, the price is high, but the amount of functions is incredible. The quality and effectiveness really impressed me. Comfortable button control and simple menu help a lot too.

My buddy got a zeus pro from armasight and happy with it so far. I hunted with it couple of times and was impressed by the detection of this thing, I was able to detect a beast out of 1000 yards and on 500-600 yards I was able to see whether it is a hog or a yote. Though I prefer to shot with my MUNS, stalking an animal with a thermal imager gives me a huge adge over night vision, they just can't hide from me. So when I got my prometeus it looks as the same as zeus pro, just with no mount on it and without a reticle. Perfect scope for detecting targets on far distances.
