FLIR Systems Introduces First Thermal Imager Designed for Smartphones

FLIR Systems Introduces First Thermal Imager Designed for Smartphones 
World Leader in Infrared Imaging Puts Powerful Thermal Imaging
Technology in Consumers' Hands With FLIR ONE(TM) 
WILSONVILLE, OR -- (Marketwired) -- 01/07/14 --  FLIR Systems, Inc.
(NASDAQ: FLIR) announces the launch of FLIR ONE(TM), the first
consumer-oriented thermal imaging system. Introduced today at CES
2014, FLIR ONE places the power of thermal imaging technology into
the palm of the consumer via an easy-to-use smartphone accessory
case. 
FLIR ONE attaches to any Apple iPhone 5 or 5s* smartphone and
displays a live thermal image on the phone's screen, giving users the
unprecedented ability to see the world in a way the naked eye cannot,
including in complete darkness. With a targeted MSRP of $349, FLIR
ONE senses heat rather than light utilizing FLIR's revolutionary new
Lepton(TM) camera core. This core incorporates the same FLIR(R)
thermal imaging technology that has revolutionized the way the world
thinks about security, public safety, energy efficiency, nighttime
navigation, industrial production, preventive maintenance, and the
enjoyment of the outdoors.  
FLIR ONE's unique ability to see and measure infrared energy gives
consumers a versatile new tool that can be applied in a wide variety
of applications. For example, homeowners and contractors with a FLIR
ONE can easily identify heat or cooling leaks in buildings, find
studs in walls, or locate water damage. An outdoor enthusiast can
observe wildlife, day or night, navigate in the dark, determine if
the day's catch is fully cooked, or make sure a campfire is out by
using FLIR ONE. A family can detect intruders in total darkness, find
a lost pet, or see through smoke in an emergency using a FLIR ONE. 
A worldwide rollout for FLIR ONE is planned for spring 2014, and it
will be available in gray, white, or gold colors. FLIR ONE houses its
own rechargeable battery that can power the device for two hours of
continuous use and can boost iPhone 5 battery life by up to 50
percent.  
"FLIR ONE represents a dramatic step in our pursuit of 'infrared
everywhere.' As the first truly consumer focused thermal imager, FLIR
ONE introduces thermal imaging technology to a completely new group
of customers than we currently s
erve," said Andy Teich, President and
CEO of FLIR. "Our products have a rich history of enabling users to
do things they thought impossible, and we are enthusiastic to see how
consumers enable further innovation through the creation of new
applications for thermal imaging."
