Improved Processor

ATN has brought in market a number of smart thermal scopes and this one is one of their best. The performance of the ThOR 4 exceeds the performance of earlier HD series. The most notable addition to the ThOR 4 series is their processor. With an Obsidian IV Dual-core processor, this scope is ready to surprise its users. The processor makes the thermal scope a lot smarter and extra powerful, increasing the overall performance of its predecessors. By balancing the power consumption and performance, this scope provides more efficiency over battery consumption and stays for the long mile.

Powerful Thermal Sensor

There are two versions of this thermal scope, one has 384×288 resolution and the other one has 640×480 resolution. Although the 640×480 version comes with better resolution, it comes with a greater price tag too. Nevertheless, if you are a professional thermal scope user and need a smart companion, the 384×288 resolution version will be good enough for you. Through extracting more depth from the sensor, this scope can create a crystal clear image of your target even if you are far away from it. Having a HD display of 1280×720 pixels, this scope surely can provide you the type of visual aids you need to make a difference.

Amazing Battery Power

You might be wondering, with so many smart features and power draining options, this scope must not have so much battery life. Well, it’s actually the opposite of that. Even after adding so many smart features and a very powerful processor, this thermal scope does not compromise on its battery life. The ThOR 4 has even increased the overall battery backup to double the amount we used to get in ThOR HD scopes. If you are thinking how they have increased the battery power, here’s how:

Low Profile Batteries:

The bigger the size of the battery, the more space it would require, and if you don’t want to run around with a heavy and large sized scope, you won’t get much battery power from it. To solve this issue, ThOR 4 comes with low profile batteries, lesser in size and more in power. These batteries are light in weight and takes up less space while providing more power connected in series.

Processor Efficiency:

The new smart processor introduced in ThOR 4 provides a balance between power consumption and performance output. It balances the usage of different features through distributing the battery power smartly and efficiently.

Heating Control:

Overheating can easily damage an electronic device and as a smart device, scopes can get damaged if heat management is not properly maintained. The smart processor used in this scope puts extra efforts in order to keep the device cooled at all times. The internal structure is designed to push out hot air from inside and pull in cool air from outside.

Magnification Choices

Of the different versions of ATN ThOR 4, even the one with the lowest price tag comes with 1.25x to 5x magnification range. For an average human sized target, the scope can easily locate it if it’s within 750 yards of the user. That’s a pretty good vision considering the magnification range. This comes in handy with safe surveillance and night-time hunting. Although, there are variations with higher magnification. The higher amount of magnification you need, the greater the detection range will become and so will the price of the scope. The maximum magnification you can get is a surprising 7-28 yards. With this magnification, you can locate an average human sized target from maximum 3000 yards and there’s more; this smart scope can identify a target over a range of 720 yards. A positive identification can be achieved if the target is within this radius.

Higher Refresh Rate

If you have used thermal scopes in the past, you must know the importance of having higher refresh rate for night-time scope activities. In order to keep the image stabilized and track movements, a higher refresh rate is required else the image will become blur while the scope moves or if the target moves too much. In order to provide a crystal clear live image of the target, this scope has included a 60Hz refresh rate. With this amazing feature, no matter how fast the movement becomes, you’ll get a clear view of your target. On top of it, this feature enables you to swing your gun while tracking your target and the scope will automatically focus on itself.

Modified Eye Relief

In earlier versions of ThOR HD scopes, 65mm eye relief was used which caused viewing issues in difficult situations. To improve that and provide a modified viewing experience, ThOR 4 comes with a 90mm eye relief. This makes viewing long ranged objects more comfortable for the viewer. The most intriguing feature of this scope is that the people who wear glasses can view through this scope without getting their glasses off.

Range Finder & Ballistic Calculator

Much like the previous ThOR thermal scopes, this one also comes with range finder and ballistic calculator but adds more smart features. The ballistic calculator used in ThOR 4 does not only detect the difference between the user and the targets location but also calculate the shot according to weather conditions. These are the weather factors that are calculated by the ballistic calculator:

  • Wind Speed
  • Wind Pressure
  • Temperature
  • Humidity

Adding to that, this smart scope also automatically recognizes the user’s gun profile and recoil to provide that perfect shot. Coupling with the smart range finder, this scope can come up with the shot you have been dreaming to take.

Automatic/Manual Dual Streaming

This feature of ThOR 4 also comes from the previous HD scope models with some important modifications. Having a maximum 64 GB storage space, you can save all your shots without compromising even a second of it. This has been a common feature in thermal scopes but ATN has made it much smarter. In earlier thermal scopes, a user could either stream a video on his/her external device or store the video in internal storage. But with ATN ThOR 4, you can both stream at your external device and store the video on your internal storage simultaneously. This feature is called dual streaming and it’s the perfect option to keep at your disposal. When you have the perfect shot, you won’t have to think twice about picking between streaming or recording, your job is to pull the trigger and the scope will dop the rest for you. With the RAV (Recoil Activated Video) feature enabled, the scope will automatically start dual streaming whenever you take a shot. This means no more “forgot to record the shot” excuse and every shot counts.

Digital Zoom & One-Shot Zero

The version of the ThOR 4 tested by our team came with a 6x digital zoom. The digital zoom feature is pretty smooth to use as the zoom wheel attached to the left side of the scope can be controlled while on the go. Changing the magnification from minimum to maximum can be achieved without losing focus from the target. This feature of the digital zoom can provide the user better opportunities to make every shot count.

On top of the digital zoom feature the scope comes with a special feature called one-shot zero. This new feature removes the need of adjusting the sight/zoom after each shot, which users face with most of the scopes in the market. One-shot zero allows the user to save the shot settings after a shot is taken. Simply, you just aim with the digital zoom, take a clean shot by hitting the target and save the settings of your shot so you won’t have to magnify or focus again to the previous target location. This feature allows you to save your shot information to take more shots at the same target location.

Easy Navigation

One of the most important things to consider while hunting is time management and one of the most important factors towards managing time perfectly is having easy to use products with you. If you can’t smoothly navigate through your scope, you’ll lose precious time and your target will just slip away. Keeping this in mind, the ThOR 4 comes with easy navigation system that users can get used to in a single use. Because of the interactive user menu and smooth interface, the scope will need only a single use to get used to. On top of that, ATN provides an Obsidian app which can also be used to control the features of this scope.

Best Suited For

In a nutshell, this thermal scope comes with a wide range of smart features and a lot of these features are not available in many earlier thermal scopes. Being a smart and modern thermal scope, this is becoming the new norm and is best suited for both beginners and professionals. The ATN ThOR 4 is more suitable for beginners as it will lead them to the wonderful world of smart thermal scopes that will come in the near future.
