Digital optics vs Analog Optics or How Computers Technology Came to The Optics Industry

In the 21st century optics market, finding the right scope can seem like a daunting task.In the past, finding a scope was easier. All you had to look for was the magnification level, perhaps the physical size of the rifle scopes itself, the weight, and the price. With today’s variety of optical devices, picking a device gets more complicated. Luckily, the extra work pays off due to the different specializations of different devices. This results in a device that can perform to your own unique needs.

Enter digital optics technology (as an example we will consider evolution of ATN corp optics). Digital optics propel the entire optical field into the 21st century. Digital devices are able to perform tasks that traditional analog devices cannot. Despite this, both analog and digital based scopes have their own benefits. Analog scopes are rarely able to offer variable magnification levels. When they can, it results in the scope having several set magnification levels that the user can switch between. However, While this may result in a clearer picture than a digital scope, switching between magnification levels is an abrupt and instantaneous process. Often times this results in your focus breaking, and then having to re-find the target.With a digital scope, the magnification is gradual, something known as E-zoom.It is a similar experience as when zooming in or out on a digital camera.

Digital optical devices excel at something that analog devices simply cannot do, real time analysis and real time computer enhanced images. Digital scopes feature a built in computer and user interface that are designed to make using this scope easier, perfect for people just starting out, all the way to security experts who depend on the scope for their jobs, and even their lives.

Digital rifle scopes and binoculars, such as the ATN X-sight, or the ATN BinoX-HD line of binoculars come with built in programs and analytics to make using the device easy. They both feature a digital compass, geo-tagging capabilities, easy recording and video out with a built in micro-USB port, and a micro-SD card slot.They also have built in image stabilization technology, along with ATN’s smooth E-zoom to make finding your target an easy process.

Another important benefit to using a digital device from ATN is in device updates, which are regularly released to both improve device performance, as well as to add features to the device. ATN makes updating easy with all digital optic devices having built in WI-FI to make updates a piece of cake.It is important to keep digital devices up to date to ensure that they will perform at their highest performance, and be able to perform the most tasks.
