FLIR Systems has announced that it has launched new thermal imaging cameras at the 2017 Consumer Electronics Show (CES). The new products feature FLIR Lepton – the company’s thermal microcamera core – and FLIR’s patented multispectral dynamic imaging (MSX) technology, which improves image quality and readability by dynamically embossing high-fidelity, visible-light details onto the thermal imagery.
“These innovative new thermal imaging devices further extend the utility and value of low-cost thermal imaging into consumer and small business applications,” said FLIR President and CEO, Andy Teich. “Thermal imaging is more accessible than ever today thanks to our continued effort to make the technology smaller, more powerful and more affordable. We’re excited to provide a thermal imaging ‘sixth sense’ with the third generation FLIR ONE, FLIR Duo for drones, and FLIR C3 camera for professional users.”
The FLIR Duo is the first multi-sensor camera to feature FLIR’s Lepton thermal microcamera core, a high-definition (HD) 1080p visible camera, and FLIR’s patented MSX technology. The FLIR Duo offers versatile onboard recording to a micro SD card and real-time remote control of camera functions and can be mounted to any airframe capable of holding the most popular action cameras. Operators can switch between the FLIR Duo’s thermal and visible cameras in-flight or view both in a picture-in-picture mode.
The FLIR Duo R adds accurate temperature measurement capabilities for commercial applications including agricultural, construction, civil engineering, building inspection, and public safety use cases.
