VSI builds image intensifiers, for use with an existing or custom camera, so you can see more. VSI intensifiers expand the use of cameras in specialized applications to allow a camera to see outside the normal spectral range, reduce exposure time, and operate at low light levels.

The VS4-1845 is an enhanced, latest generation image intensifier assembly. It attaches to an existing camera, similar to a lens, to make an instant intensified camera. Featuring the latest updates based on new technology, user feedback, and parts availability, the VS4-1845 housing design allows the flexibility of adding and removing many popular options without custom hardware.  The housing design also boasts a relay lens with a throughput that is close to a fiber optic, virtually eliminating inherent glare (unwanted reflection and/or light leaks).  Thus, the VS4-1845 remains the most versatile solution for low light level imaging applications.
