AS WE TURN 40…
We wish to express our gratitude to our dealers and customers for their patronage and creative stimulations. Most of our product ideas were inspired by our customers. Many thanks for the endless fun.
Further, we wish to celebrate our peers who innovate with us and supply the essential hardware and services that make our products possible. Most of our peers are small businesses that started with a team of entrepreneurial engineers who had a brilliant solution for a particular problem and then dedicated decades of effort into making it better. Without much fanfare, they are the pinnacle of their field. Our designs are effective because they generously shared their knowledge and experiences. Our products are reliable because the components are flawless. This past year has been particularly challenging for small businesses. We are grateful for the guidance, collaboration and support. We wish everyone great health and continued success.
From the deep ocean to outer reaches of space, our instruments make the visualization and measurement of challenging targets possible.
It all started with ideas on a napkin (we still have it). Our founder had a successful microscope dealership but launched Video Scope International, Ltd. (VSI) in 1982 to solve a problem that persistently frustrated customers: cameras could not record live cell events without external illumination and quite often that illumination overpowered the event itself or harmed the cells. The solution required low light level sensitivity so VSI pioneered the use of image intensifiers, which were developed for night vision, for use in scientific low light level imaging applications.
Image intensifiers were originally developed for night vision, however, it did not take long for the scientific community to realize their utility for a wide variety of scientific research applications.
Video Scope International, Ltd. (VSI) was founded to make lens-coupled image intensifier assemblies. This allowed scientists to image low light level events with their regular CCD cameras on their microscopes (microscopy).
