Inspect with Intelligence​

Designed with professional and advanced visual inspectors in mind, the Everest Mentor Visual iQ is built to meet the highest standards in image quality and 3D measurement capability.  Interchangeable probes, platform configurations, and on-device AI deliver productivity while increasing probability of detection and inspection accuracy.​

Innovation starts here.

OS 3.7 software is now available for the Everest Mentor Visual iQ. With this new software, all assisted defect recognition analytics on the MViQ video borescope can function in a live state. Now 3D Stitching is available with Real3D Stereo Measurement, your MViQ can generate a fully-surfaced 3D point cloud representation of the asset that makes it easier to analyze and measure the defect you've spotted. This update also features new tips that expand your envelope of application, allowing you to inspect from closer and farther away than ever before.


  • Military grade portable design with bright LCD touchscreen display and integrated connectivity options
  • Real3D™ measurement provides advanced tools, including auto-measurement, measurement from/to a projected plane and 3D stitching of multiple images.​
  • Leveraging computer vision and machine learning, powerful analytics are available to increase reliability and consistency of data collected while reducing inspection time by automating repetitive tasks.​
  • Push2IW automates your data upload process by automatically sending images and data from your MViQ video borescope to the InspectionWorks cloud.

  • Streamlines inspection workflows with Menu Directed Inspection (MDI) and InspectionWorks.
  • Optional Probability of Detection software and image transforms leverage TrueSight™ to ensure you don’t miss an indication.

Everest Mentor Visual iQ Videoscope Features
HD Resolution & 3D Image Stitching
See the whole picture

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.

Inspect, interrogate and report more of the scene with 3D Stitching. Combining individual images, and corresponding point clouds, to a larger image enables measurement of larger defects across multiple images and the ability to accurately locate the position of defects in relation to a fixed point-of-interest.

TrueSight™ Imaging
TrueSight™ Image Processing Software

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 visual 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 the following (click to watch videos): Adaptive Noise Reduction (ANR), Dark Boost, Distortion CorrectionInverse+Variable High Dynamic Range (VHDR) and Color Saturation.

Real3D™ Measurement
Real3D™ Measurement - Advanced 3D Inspection Software

Real3D™ measurement combines fully surfaced point cloud visualization, advanced measurement algorithms and an insightful 3D Surface Mask and a dynamic warning system to enable more accurate and repeatable measurement decisions. Choose from three measurement technologies (3D Phase, 3D Stereo and traditional stereo). 3D Phase measurement allows measurement on-demand without changing tips.

Each of these technologies is compatible with some or all of our 9 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, automatic tip blade clearance and radius gauge.

Aside from measurement types, Real3D provides advanced tools such as depth assist and projected measurement plane to further increase accuracy of measurements.

How do I know which video borescope will fit my application?

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.

What can this video borescope measure?

With the power of Real3D™, the MViQ can measure length, area, depth, multi-segment, depth profile, measurement plane and area depth profile.

What is the difference between HD and SD borescopes?

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.

How do I get the ADR analytic?

A free 90-day trial should be activated after installing your 3.7 software. After that, contact your local Waygate Technologies sales representative.

Is it possible to create other analytics designed for other engine types, components, or defect types?

Yes. Waygate Technologies is committed to delivering Inspection Solutions to the inspection industry. Please contact your local Waygate Technologies sales representative to discuss your needs. 

Due to the common nature of gas turbine architecture and defect classifications, it is likely that this ADR analytic remains application to other gas turbine types beyond those listed in section 4.0. 

Note that LMS100, LM2500, AND LM6000 are aeroderivative of the CF6 aero gas turbine series.

Why should I consider using an ADR analytic?

ADR improves consistency and reliability of inspection tasks by leveraging Computer Vision technology to assist the trained Inspector in conducting the visual inspection. It also reduced the probability of missing indications on critical turbomachinery components. ADR also provides automatic annotation for the user to approve, and it increases the overall quality of inspection output.

Does the MViQ need to be connect to the internet to work?

No. The analytics operate entirely standalone within the device.

Can I use the ADR analytic post-inspection on the MViQ device?

Yes. The ADR can process on recalled images within the MViQ "Flame" handset. Such images can be: those that have either been previously processed using this analytic; or raw/unprocessed images. Inferences can be generated and subsequently saved for presentation or inclusion into the inspection report.
