This versatile borescope inspection tool offers a wide selection of interchangeable probes and platform configurations to enable thorough visual inspections and improve the Probability of Detection (POD) for high-value industrial assets. A bright LCD touchscreen display with superior viewing angles helps detect even the smallest indications.
All of this adds up to the most versatile, reliable, and comprehensive video borescope available for your toughest industrial inspection challenges. This is matched with a wide selection of interchangeable probes to deliver reliability across Aerospace, Oil and Gas, Power Generation, Automotive, Food & Beverage, and Pharmaceutical Manufacturing.
We used to be GE Inspection Technologies, now we’re Waygate Technologies, a global leader in NDT solutions with more than 125 years of experience in ensuring quality, safety and productivity.
Key Solution Characteristics
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.
TrueSight™ provides a blend of high resolution image capturing and processing functions, precision optics and a powerful suite of proprietary image transforms used to enable better 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: Adaptive Noise Reduction (ANR), Dark Boost, Distortion Correction, Inverse+, Variable High Dynamic Range (VHDR) and Color Saturation.
Real3D measurement combines fully surfaced point cloud visualization, advanced measurement algorithms and an insightful 3D Surface Mask to enable more accurate and repeatable measurement decisions. Choose from three measurement technologies (3D Phase, 3D Stereo and traditional stereo).
Each of these technologies is compatible with some or all of our 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 and measurement plane. Real3D Measurement also utilizes a dynamic warning system that helps guide inspectors and avoid unintended errors.
The Mentor Visual iQ is a connected device that hosts a suite of digital tools used to make inspections consistent and efficient. On-device software updates, anywhere in the world. Real-time live collaboration with experts and customer-managed secure rich tagged data storage recalled from the cloud, all tailored to meet individual inspection needs.
Constructed with military-grade durability (MIL-STD) to withstand the rigors of the industrial workplace, you can trust your Mentor Visual iQ device to deliver top performance in even the harshest environmental conditions.

Adapt rigid borescopes and flexible fiberscopes to the Mentor Visual iQ VideoProbe.
The borescope adapter for Mentor Visual iQ combines optical clarity, durability and high-temperature operation of a rigid borescope with the image capture and data management capability of the Mentor Visual iQ VideoProbe system. The borescope adapter connects to the handset of the Mentor Visual iQ system as an interchangeable probe, adding versatility to your visual inspection toolkit.
- Couples illumination from Mentor Visual iQ system to the borescope
- VGA camera captures live video at high resolution
- Minimizes cables and connections
- Enables all MViQ system data management features
- Adapts to all Waygate Technologies rigid borescopes and fiberscopes
- Can also adapt to rigid borescopes and fiberscopes from other manufacturers
Add depth to your in-depth inspections
In order to fully gain perspective, you need to see your defects in full. With 3D point cloud and HD imaging technology, the Mentor Visual iQ doesn't just detect flaws; it lets you visualize them.
Real3D Video Highlights
Real3D Measurement for Pipe Weld Inspection
Area Depth Profile
"We created a new measurement type we call area depth profile, where we’re able to place two cursors on one side of the weld, and a third cursor on the opposite side. Then, it can provide a view showing a cross-section of the weld at the measurement location."
Real3D Measurement for Aerospace Turbine Blade Inspection
Projected Plane Measurement
"The corner of a turbine blade may have broken off from the engine. We developed a new technology we refer to as projected plane measurement, the user positions three cursors on the remaining face of the turbine blade so that effectively extends the surface of the blade to where the corner used to be."
Real3D Measurement for Aerospace Lube Oil Pump Inspection
3D Phase Measuring
"What we’ve done with the Mentor Visual iQ is we’ve implemented 3D phase measuring. 3D gives you the ability to look at every single pixel and the X,Y, Z value associated with it. Is it left right? Is it up down? Is it further from the camera or closer to the camera? Gives that one single pixel an X, Y, Z value."
Real3D Measurement for Power Inspection
The power of Real3D
"With this customer, we got this request to help them out with an additional measurement. And we noticed that the previous measurements were taken by 2D imaging and only a length measurement capability. So we went in with Mentor Visual iQ and we performed a 3D measurement."
Our support team offers consultations to help you figure out which Borescope will be best fit for your inspection device needs. Contact one of our experts.
With the power of Real3D™, the MViQ can measure length, area, depth, multi-segment, depth profile, measurement plane and area depth profile.
The Mentor Visual iQ has 1.2 megapixel HD sensors to increase image quality up to 1.7 times clearer than standard models operating at 440K pixels. This allows you to zoom into indications until they're nearly 70 percent larger, ensuring the most accurate analysis possible.
