Helion, Trail and Accolade Firmware Update Greatly Increases Image Processing

By bmatheus  

We have some great news about our latest software update leading to a significant increase in sensor performance and video recording quality. A specifically assigned “Up” button in Helions will now be used to quickly switch between new observation modes in various conditions.


The Helion firmware update includes:

  • Sensor performance increase to enhance detection, recognition and identification
  • Improvement of video recording quality

Pulsar continuously advances image processing algorithms. As a result of extensive research and advanced testing, Pulsar successfully implemented the support of the enhanced gain mode, significantly increasing the ability to detect, recognize and identify objects in conditions of low-temperature differences.

Due to numerous requests from Pulsar thermal users, the new algorithms were implemented in the company’s current product line with the release of the latest software update. Optimization of gain enhancement algorithms allows us to achieve an increase in sensor performance while reducing power consumption.

The changes are visible in the following observation modes:


Optimally depicts details when it is necessary to recognize or identify the objects and works well under difficult conditions: rain, fog (possibility of more image noise, which is normal for this mode.)


Optimal image in conditions of dense vegetation and low-temperature differences—relief, vegetation and hot objects are clearly more visible.


Optimal display of warmer signatures in the presence of many objects with different temperatures (sunny day, mountains or city relief) in the field of view

After the firmware update, the modes will be configured to work better in various conditions.

Interface changes will appear in order to facilitate faster switching between observation modes. A short press of the “Up” button will be used to quickly switch between modes and a long press will change color palettes (in Helion and Accolade.)

Along with a higher-quality screen image, the quality of video recordings and photos will also be improved, along with the higher quality image. The use of new algorithms allows steadier and more consistent recording.

To update software, install the free “Stream Vision” application from Google Play or App Store on your smartphone. Firmware updates are available for Trail XQ/XP riflescopes, Helion XQ/XP monoculars and Accolade XQ/XP binoculars.
