To allow the user to see, detect and identify objects in low-light and no-light environments where it is difficult or impossible to see with the naked eye.




Digital night vision device employs either a CCD (Charge-Coupled Device) Sensor, or a CMOS (Complementary Metal-Oxide Semiconductor) Sensor, both of which perform the same job of converting the light into electrons. To put it in simple words, each sensor has an array of millions of tiny cells, and each individual cell transforms the light from a small portion of the image into electrons.

Every digital night vision device requires batteries or other power sources to operate.  Unlike a daylight binocular or a scope, where you see the image due to light traveling through the glass and the prisms, the digital device works by projecting the image onto a micro-display.  It therefore can affect the direct viewing experience. For example, the actual image sensor may be capable of Full-HD image resolution, but if the image is projected onto a VGA resolution display the direct-viewing experience will be limited to the VGA resolution. However, if the video recording function is activated, the recorded footage will have the native image sensor resolution during playback on an HDTV or a compatible monitor.



2024 is the first year when anyone wishing to have a night vision binocular no longer needs to compromise between the traditional Gen-3 “tube” devices, which are able to see well in nearly zero light conditions, but cost thousands and lack features like safe-use during daytime, ability to see in full color, record videos, take still images, connect to smartphones and so on, and most other digital night vision devices, which have plethora of features, but severely lack performance in very low light conditions, relying heavily on the built-in infrared illuminators.

The wait is over – Quantum Digital Core is here! Our first entrant in this revolutionary technology is the LN-QD-B50 binoculars. Featuring the newest state-of-the-art SONY STARVIS™ image sensor and combined with our proprietary software, these binoculars will perform in near zero lux conditions allowing to see full color image even in completely dark environments without the use of IR illuminator.

Our G3 Digital technology revolutionized the digital night vision market in 2020 when Luna Optics was the first company to employ SONY Exmor™ FHD sensors. Now, it has just been improved even further. As of January 1st, 2024, all of Luna Optics G3 digital day/night vision devices employ the very latest Quad-HD Exmor™ sensors, which takes the digital night vision technology to a whole new level, providing nighttime sensitivity unmatched by other digital sensors (including FHD and 4K versions) while improving image resolution to near 4K quality. (Exmor™ is a trademark of SONY Corporation).

In addition to the superb image sensor, our entire G3 family of digital products employs innovative High Definition 1,280 x 720 Widescreen AMOLED-Q displays with Quad-Pixel Technology (RGBW) and Dimming function allowing for extra sharp contrast even in the low-light conditions – made in France by MICROOLED corporation. These displays provide optimum resolution for the human eye's direct viewing experience and are more comfortable to view compared to even the higher resolution displays.

The main advantage of any digital day/night vision device compared to a daylight binocular, or a scope is that in addition to being useful during daytime, digital device can also operate in low-light and no-light conditions where seeing is virtually impossible with any traditional daylight optical device.



Optical parts of every Night Vision device consist of the Objective Lens and the Ocular (Eyepiece) Lens.

The main demand for an Objective Lens is the high light transmittance in the visible and near Infrared light. It is expressed with the geometric light power from the line (f-number). Examples of the f-numbers are 1.0, 1.2, 1.5, 2.0 etc. The higher the F-number is, the less light is transmitted through the objective lens. Good light transmittance is very important for any night vision device, but especially for digital day/night products. Luna Optics digital devices enjoy the best light transmission with f1.0 objective lens employed in all models. Our new LN-QD-B50 binocular with Quantum Digital Core goes even further to employ the f0.9 objective lens, which actually increases the light transmission slightly compared to the amount of light that entered the lens.

The Ocular is equally important for any night vision device, as it picks up the illuminated image from the display and brings it to the user's eye. All of the Luna Optics models feature all-glass ocular lens with multiple lens elements to provide the highest possible image quality to the user.
