An industrial videoscope is an instrument that enables inspectors to visually inspect areas that are otherwise difficult to access, such as the combustion chamber of a jet engine. Videoscopes support industry by helping reduce time, labor, and associated costs by enabling users to nondestructively inspect inside components would otherwise need to be disassembled. To meet the requirements of industry, Olympus has developed a brighter illumination system for videoscopes. This paper discusses this new illumination system and the positive impact it has on image quality.
