TNVC – Night Goggles Inc Mini DVR Recording System

Thursday, July 30th, 2015


TThe NGI Mini DVR Recording System allows users to record footage directly through their thermal imaging system. The Mini DVR is powered by a rechargeable Li-Ion battery for up to 5 hours of continuous playback. It features an onboard 2.5″ 960×240 LCD screen with real time display, and records either 640×480 or 320×240 footage at 30fps, with date and time stamp.

The Mini DVR comes with a custom 500D Cordura nylon pouch and harness, designed to secure to multiple platforms, such as a rifle buttstock or the back of a helmet. It also comes with a custom video interface cable, built exclusively for NGI and proprietary to the Mini DVR; an integral microphone is secured with the video cable, offering better sound capture than a microphone built into the DVR would.

The NGI Mini DVR Recording System is compatible with the following thermal imaging devices: IR Defense IR Hunter Mk2, IR Patrol M250, M300W, FLIR RS24, RS32, RS64.

TNVC – Night Vision / Thermal Capability Comparison

Wednesday, July 22nd, 2015

This is an article on the comparison between Image Intensification and Thermal Capability produced by TNVC, which we are republishing with their consent. It’s a rather lengthy piece but worth the jump.

The term “night vision” actually covers two technologies: Image Intensification and Thermal. These two technologies have undergone significant development over the past 25 years and made tremendous leaps in the past 15 throughout the Global War on Terror. They have provided unprecedented advantages to the warfighter on the battlefield and law enforcement professionals in their never ending struggles to keep this country safe. And like most technologies born on the battlefield, tactical eventually becomes practical. With the rising popularity of nighttime hog and predator hunting in the United States, more and more hunters are finding themselves shopping for night vision gear. Night Vision Hunting has become the fastest growing segment of the hunting market and many hunters are asking: “what type of device is best for me?” The law enforcement community is asking itself these same questions as many agencies are finding a need to better equip themselves at night in order to keep the streets safe.


TNVC Introduces the MOD3 Modular NVG

Monday, July 13th, 2015


TNVC is now offering the incredible MOD3 Night Vision Goggle System. The MOD3 is the most modular goggle ever created and features a fully functional binocular system that can be broken down into two individually-operating monoculars in seconds. TNVC assembles the MOD3 with brand new high spec L-3 OMNI VIII MX10160 image tubes complete with factory data sheets.


Until now you could either have a binocular or monocular. The MOD-3 overcomes this problem by utilizing Optical Pods that are waterproof, Nitrogen purged units that can be installed into either a monocular or binocular. Power is conducted to the intensifier tube and indicator LEDs by means of spring loaded, gold plated contacts. Even the springs are gold plated to prevent corrosion.

The Optical Pods can be assembled in the MOD-3 Binocular Bridge to form a full function binocular. A latching mechanism firmly holds the Optical Pods in place and is easily manipulated with one finger. Installing or removing the Optical Pods is accomplished in just a couple seconds.

The other half of the MOD-3 system is the MOD-3 Monocular Adapter. This adapts an Optical Pod into a full function monocular. It has the same circuitry as the Binocular Bridge which means you have a flood IR LED, IR “on” indicator, and low battery indicator. It uses the 3V lithium battery as well. It also accepts the IR Spot/Flood adapters like the PVS-7 goggles use.

Like the Binocular Bridge, the Monocular Adapter releases the Optical pod with the press of one finger, allowing instant changeover from monocular to binocular. The monocular housing is waterproof and has a side mount like a PVS-14, allowing you to use it as you would any other monocular with head and weapon mounts. The monocular is 75 grams lighter than a PVS-14.

All MOD3 kits come complete with two full assembled Optic Pods with MILSPEC PVS-14 Objective and Eye Piece Lenses, One Binocular Bridge, and two Monocular Adapters. The Binocular bridge will attach to any dovetail night vision mount interface while the monocular adapters simply require the addition of any PVS-14 J-Arm to attach to a helmet mount.
