First Look: Pulsar Digisight Ultra N455

posted on July 3, 2019

It wasn't that long ago that night-vision gear being affordable to everyday consumers seemed like an impossible dream. Sure, there are benefits for having night-vision equipment, particularly for hunters, but the astronomical cost of the units made their use in the commercial market not even worth examining. However, as technology develops and manufacturing processes are streamlined, night-vision gear continues to drop in price, making it a more-affordable choice for today’s gun owner. Once just limited in use to the country’s most-elite combat units, night-vision gear is coming into its own for gun owners who realize the advantages it brings to hog hunting, varmint hunting or other applications.

The newest member of the Pulsar Digisight family, the Digisight Ultra N455, is good example of how top-rank night-vision gear is now available to people who don’t wear a uniform to work. Designed to enhance your low-light experience, the Digisight N455 is built to help you take down predators, hogs and varmints day or night.

Pulsar integrates a high-resolution 1280x720 CMOS sensor with a 1024x768 AMOLED display to give you a detection range of up to 550 yards. Designed for day or nighttime use, the N455 also has a picture-in-picture 4X digital zoom with continuous and 2X, 4X stepped options, wide field-of-view and a removable LED 940 invisible IR illuminator.

The Digisight Ultra 455 is the perfect way to record your nighttime hunting and shooting, thanks to the built-in video recorder, and you can also easily stream your adventure with the Stream Vision App through WiFi on your mobile or tablet device. The Digisight N455 has more than 10 electronic reticles and nine color options, with each holding their own advantage, giving you dozens of ways to customize your sight to your exact specifications.
