Ways the Inspection Videoscope Helps Locate Contraband

Ways the Inspection Videoscope Helps Locate Contraband

Fiberscopes remain in wide use by many law enforcement agencies. However, inspection videsocopes have attained wider popularity after Campbell/Harris Security Equipment Company (CSECO) launched the Perfect Vision V2 Videoscope Inspection System.

This videsocope has its own way of locating contraband, something which is distinct from a fiberscope. This tool makes visual inspections more focused and accurate, as well as safer than ever before.

One of the reasons why the Perfect Vision V20 Videoscope remains popular is its large, 5-inch color LCD monitor which is also equipped with a push-button dimming and digital zoom in/zoom out feature. The high resolution of the display provides 10 times the resolution of the world’s leading fiberscopes. The large monitor allows the user to see into the suspect area more clearly, and when he arrives at something anomalous, all he has to do is push the zoom to get a closer look or switch on the LED light when inspecting darker areas. No more squinting your eyes to peek into a small eyepiece as you do with a fiberscope.

The Perfect Vision V20 Videoscope’s large monitor also means no more troublesome camera attachments needed in order to capture a photo or video evidence which is deemed helpful in the justice system. The Perfect Vision V20 Videoscope really stands true to its name indeed — it provides superior, high-quality images of the area being inspected.

It’s two-way, tungsten-armored shaft is long and thin that you can insert even into more limited spaces such as fuel tanks and surface crevices. It also has a powerful built-in LED lighting for use in the evening or in darker areas.

Another feature that excites interdiction officers and border patrol officer at checkpoints, as well as customs agents, is the tool’s absence of tiny fiber glass optics that are usually found in fiberscopes. These tiny fiber glass optics are more prone to damage and thus require costly repairs more often. The Perfect Vision V20 Videoscope uses a different technology for imaging which allows for less frequent, less costly but much quicker repairs.

The Perfect Vision V20 Videoscope was the first videoscope to be certified “safe” by the Underwriters Laboratory (UL) for use in high-risk areas such as fuel tanks. Interdiction officers, customs and border officers, and other law enforcement agents will be confident in using the Perfect Vision V20 Videoscope anytime, anywhere. Many other scopes — fiber optic or a videoscope – don’t have the same safety designation by the UL, something that CSECO is proud of.

Using the Perfect Vision V20 Videoscope is easy. Just insert the long, thin shaft into a suspicious area (such as a compartment of a vehicle or a fuel tank). Continue to feed it further into the location until you see some anomalous markings inside, indications that a hollow space has been made to hide the contraband. You can switch on the LED light to enable you to look into the darker areas as you’re inspecting and see clearly.

When you spot contraband, capture pictures or record videos for evidence. The Perfect Vision V20 Videoscope has a slot for the 8 GB micro SD card which can save up to 8,000 photos or up to 4.5 hours of video evidence.

CSECO employs the latest technology to ensure more effective and productive inspections. This led to the creation of the Perfect Vision V20 Videoscope Inspection System, which so far has impressed law enforcement agents because of the clear images it provides, its user-friendliness as well as its UL safety feature. They understand how this inspection videoscope helps them locate hidden contraband.
