This unique product has been designed for use with all digital night vision systems.

The Newton CVR640 has an integral Weaver mount that fits on to a Weaver/Picatinny rail, such as fitted to the side of the Pulsar Digisight night vision scope, and Pulsar Recon 550 and X550. A small Weaver rail with tripod screw is also included with the CVR640, enabling it to be fitted to night vision systems with tripod fittings, such as the Newton Hornet and Yukon Ranger digital night vision systems.

The CVR640 is extremely lightweight, compact, and easy to use. The two operating buttons are Power On-Off and Record Start-Stop. Two small status lights indicate unit on, unit recording, and error light, indicating loss of signal/low power/full memory card. Manual, driver, file manager, and date/time software are provided on the supplied SD card.

The Video-In accepts an analogue video stream, which is converted it to a 600x800 pixel digital video that is recorded to a removable SD card. The Newton CVR640 has an option to add a date and time stamp to the video recording, useful for security, surveillance, wildlife observation, and record keeping.
