Presumably thermal cameras are not a hot topic.
“FLIR is a recognized industry leader in thermal imagers and as such, Dahua and several others have chosen FLIR to provide that technology for their products over the years. This fits in with our philosophy to maintain an open relationship with the industry on the imaging, recording and video management businesses”.
Luke. Low cost and high resolution are not one in the same. Resolution in regards to thermal is dictated in the quality of the sensor for measuring heat between objects or simply how precise the heat measurement is, not image size. Although image size has a little to do with it, it is not a guarantee of quality. Specifically you theoretically could have a 1MP thermal camera but the sensitivity would be so low that the camera would all but be useless for any degree of image quality. This is 100% dictated by ITAR or International Traffic in Arms Regulation where thermals fall under. Don't expect anytime soon to see high quality thermals come at low prices.
