360 Thermal Camera (HGH IR Revolution)

Author: Ethan Ace, Published on Sep 24, 2012

Everyone seems to be going 360, even thermal cameras now. While panoramic cameras provide sweeping coverage area, traditional approaches could not 'see' very far nor terribly well in the dark. Now, a new high end and expensive thermal 360 offering aims to overcome these issues for monitoring critical infrastructure and military bases. In this note, we examine the features and pricing of this thermal 360 compared to Sony XI and ipConfigure GWAS offerings.
