Acal BFi has signed a Pan European supply agreement with FLIR to offer the latest thermal camera cores and will launch the FLIR Boson thermal core. “We are thrilled to bring FLIR into our product portfolio and we are already seeing very positive sales activity across Europe for the world-leading FLIR thermal cores including Tau 2, Quark 2, PathFindIR II and Vue.” says Alex Schneider, Business Development Director of Acal BFi’s Imaging division.
FLIR’s XIR expandable infrared video processing architecture implemented in Boson, helps OEMs take advantage of advanced image processing and video analytics while keeping power consumption low.
Manufacturers of drones, cars, weapons sights and handheld imagers will now have the ability to process video onboard, and allow Boson to do things previous cores could not.
Alex Schneider adds, “We are particularly excited to be able to offer the groundbreaking FLIR Boson thermal core as part of this new partnership. The combination of size, weight and power (SWaP), state-of-the-art imaging, and wide range of built-in image processing and interface capabilities make Boson a real game changer in the thermal camera core market. It is the first thermal camera core to incorporate a sophisticated, low-power multi-core vision processor unit that helps make Boson the smartest thermal core on the planet. The FLIR range is a perfect fit for our world-class technology offerings.”
“It is a natural fit to work with Acal BFi due to their extensive expertise in the development and distribution of thermal imaging solutions and applications, built on over 20 years of experience as a leader in this industry,” commented Bill Terre, Vice President FLIR OEM. “Acal BFi understands thermal imaging and integrating thermal imaging into a wide range of applications.”
