Firmware update 2.0: available for XQ and XM sensor devices
After releasing firmware update 2.0 for the XG and XP line last month, Yukon Advanced Optics Worldwide is now expanding the range of supporting devices to the Axion 2 XQ35, the Axion 2 LRF XQ35, the Axion XM30F thermal imaging monoculars and the Talion XQ38 thermal imaging riflescope.
Upgraded algorithms for a more informative image
Firmware algorithms detect and process images. With the upgraded image processing algorithms, firmware 2.0 reaches new heights in thermal imaging detail, sharpness and contrast.
The thermal imager clearly displays complex scenes with evenly emitting low-contrast objects, such as the sky, grass or water surfaces, and in a wide range of halftones. The enhanced detail and software that sharpens objects at varying distances, renders a highly informative thermal image.
Exciting new optimized video recording for high-quality content
Preserve your best hunting moments as high-quality video recordings with the new firmware 2.0.
A new feature enabling video compression simply turning it ON or OFF, was already present in our Thermion 2 LRF XP50 Pro line and with the Merger LRF XP50. By updating the firmware, this feature is now available for the other devices listed.
The ON mode results in faster transfer of small files and higher quality video compared with the previous firmware version.
The OFF button turns compression off and significantly improves the quality and detail of video files. The new algorithms enable reducing the file size by several times without affecting video quality.
The newly implemented algorithms also enable eliminating sound distortions.
New graphic elements for enhanced user interface
To improve the perception of graphic information on the display, a translucent substrate has been added when displaying the following information:
- Results of distance measurements (relevant for devices with a built-in laser rangefinder);
- Side incline level (relevant for the Talion XQ38).
How to update the firmware?
Install Stream Vision 2, a free mobile application available on Google Play or the AppStore. Connect your smartphone to the thermal imaging unit using WiFi and update the firmware.
