LONDONDERRY, N.H. - Imagine if you could see crisp, clear, live images in total darkness, through fog, smoke, or thick brush with a devise that fits comfortably in the palm of your hand, said Devin Standard, Director of Marketing & Business Development - as he addressed the audience at last night's Product of the Year Awards banquet. And, imagine if you could locate a lost child lying unconscious in the deep woods or a man overboard from your pleasure boat at night or in dense fog.

STOP imagining. Insight Tech-Gear has the solution, the MTMv2-LCD, the smallest high-resolution handheld thermal imaging devise in the world, weighing in a less that 11oz. Boasting a robust military heritage and innovative features, this product has been created to directly serve the first responder market with unprecedented portability, thermal imaging performance, and easy viewing.

Utilizing a high-resolution infrared detector coupled with Insight's proprietary electronics and imbedded software, the MTMv2-LCD runs on commercially available batteries for over 4 hours making it ideal for search & rescue operations on land and at sea. Saving lives in the goal of using this New Hampshire designed and manufactured high-tech product. Resume imagining!
