Mentor Visual iQ HD VideoProbe

The most versatile, reliable, and comprehensive video borescope inspection camera available for your toughest industrial inspection challenges. This versatile video borescope offers TrueSight™ imaging and military-grade ruggedness with a variety of interchangeable probes and platform configurations to improve Probability of Detection (POD) for high-value industrial assets. 


Inspect with Intelligence​

Designed with professional and advanced visual inspectors in mind, the Everest Mentor Visual iQ is built to meet the highest standards in image quality and 3D measurement capability.  Interchangeable probes, platform configurations, and on-device AI deliver productivity while increasing probability of detection and inspection accuracy.​

Innovation starts here.

OS 3.7 software is now available for the Everest Mentor Visual iQ. With this new software, all assisted defect recognition analytics on the MViQ video borescope can function in a live state. Now 3D Stitching is available with Real3D Stereo Measurement, your MViQ can generate a fully-surfaced 3D point cloud representation of the asset that makes it easier to analyze and measure the defect you’ve spotted. This update also features new tips that expand your envelope of application, allowing you to inspect from closer and farther away than ever before.


    • Military grade portable design with bright LCD touchscreen display and integrated connectivity options
    • Real3D™ measurement provides advanced tools, including auto-measurement, measurement from/to a projected plane and 3D stitching of multiple images.​
    • Leveraging computer vision and machine learning, powerful analytics are available to increase reliability and consistency of data collected while reducing inspection time by automating repetitive tasks.​
    • Push2IW automates your data upload process by automatically sending images and data from your MViQ video borescope to the InspectionWorks cloud.
    • Streamlines inspection workflows with Menu Directed Inspection (MDI) and InspectionWorks.
    • Optional Probability of Detection software and image transforms leverage TrueSight™ to ensure you don’t miss an indication.

  • HD Resolution & 3D Image Stitching
    • See the whole picture
    • Industry-leading 1.2-megapixel HD image resolution boasts high-quality images and videos for your inspections. When you can see clearly, you increase the probability of detection, speed up inspection workflow, and deliver results with confidence.
    • Inspect, interrogate and report more of the scene with 3D Stitching. Combining individual images, and corresponding point clouds, to a larger image enables measurement of larger defects across multiple images and the ability to accurately locate the position of defects in relation to a fixed point-of-interest.
  • TrueSight™ Image Processing Software
    • TrueSight™ provides a blend of high resolution image capturing and processing functionsprecision optics and a powerful suite of proprietary image transforms used to enable better visual inspection decisions.
    • The suite of image transforms is included in the Analyze model and available on Touch and Inspect models when ordering our Probability of Detection SW package.
    • This POD SW includes the following (click to watch videos): Adaptive Noise Reduction (ANR), Dark Boost, Distortion CorrectionInverse+Variable High Dynamic Range (VHDR) and Color Saturation.
  • Real3D™ Measurement – Advanced 3D Inspection Software
    • Real3D™ measurement combines fully surfaced point cloud visualization, advanced measurement algorithms and an insightful 3D Surface Mask and a dynamic warning system to enable more accurate and repeatable measurement decisions. Choose from three measurement technologies (3D Phase, 3D Stereo and traditional stereo). 3D Phase measurement allows measurement on-demand without changing tips.
    • Each of these technologies is compatible with some or all of our 9 measurement types to help get the measurement needed in multiple applications. They include basics like length, depth point to line and area, but also specialty types including depth profile, area depth profile, automatic tip blade clearance and radius gauge.
    • Aside from measurement types, Real3D provides advanced tools such as depth assist and projected measurement plane to further increase accuracy of measurements.
  • AI and Analytics
    • Leverage computer vision and machine learning to help improve consistency and reliability of inspection tasks and increase the overall quality of an inspection output. The Mentor Visual iQ enables users to leverage analytical models from multiple sources.
    • Waygate Technologies Analytics. Powered by InspectionsWorks Analyze, Gas Power assist and Blade Counter are analytics developed to improve reliability and data integrity
    • Third Party Partner Analytics. Available directly on the Mentor Visual iQ, users can leverage Aiir Innovations’ aviation commercial engine models for defect detection
    • Third Party Private Analytics. For customers developing their own analytics, the Mentor Visual iQ enables deployment to a global team
  • Digital Tools and Connectivity
    • InspectionWorks is a software platform which provides a suite of digital tools used to make inspections consistent and more efficient, while turning inspection data into a tool for faster and better decisions.
      • InspectionWorks Connect provides collaboration and real-time access to experts.
      • InspectionWorks Insight is a comprehensive data management and inspection database enabling global access to data and analytics. With Push2IW, data is automatically pushed to the cloud during the inspection to streamline data management and ensure against lost data.
      • InspectionWorks Store, Public and Private, provides access to workflows and reference libraries. The Public stores contains manuals, analytic data sheets, MDI templates, and other reference materials. The Private store is available to share with members of your InspectionWorks account and distribute custom MDI workflows, analytics, reference documents, or any other resources your team may need.
  • Military Grade Ruggedness
    • Constructed with military-grade durability (MIL-STD) to withstand the rigors of the industrial workplace, you can trust your Mentor Visual iQ videoscope device to deliver top performance in even the harshest environmental conditions.
    • Standard compliance and classifications:
      • MIL-STD-810G United States Department of Defense Environment Tests Sections 501.5, 502.5, 506.5, 507.5, 509.5, 511.5, 514.6, 516.6, 521.3
