Safety Vision, L.P. Signs Agreement with FLIR Systems, Inc.
Houston TX - Safety Vision, a global provider of mobile digital video solutions today announced that they entered into an agreement with FLIR Systems, Inc., a world leader in the design and manufacturing of thermal imaging cameras.
As part of the agreement, Safety Vision will promote the PathFindIR™, an infrared camera designed to make night driving safer. This strategic relationship will allow both companies to increase their reach into the fire, rescue and EMS sector as well as the commercial trucking and mining industries.
"This agreement enables us to be the first mobile video company to offer a truly integrated solution of this caliber to our customers. We are excited about it. Initially, infrared systems were cost prohibitive but changes in technology and volume production have brought costs down," states Rex Colorado, VP of sales and new product development.
The PathFindIR is an infrared camera that enables first responders and other drivers to see in total darkness, smoke, dust, rain, snow and light fog. Vehicle headlight systems provide between 250 to 450 feet of moderate illumination, giving most drivers traveling at 60 miles an hour less than 4 seconds to react. By contrast, the FLIR system increases the line of sight five times farther than headlight beams; so under the same conditions, the driver has more than 15 seconds to react to roadway and onsite hazards.
Safety Vision is a leading global provider of total mobile video solutions including onboard surveillance and collision avoidance camera systems. System features include mobile-rated digital or analog video recorders; rear-, side-, and forward-view interior & exterior cameras; flatscreen or CRT monitors; built-in audio; camera switchers; and infrared technology. Safety Vision offers extended service agreements and worldwide field installation. For information: 800-880-8855, firstname.lastname@example.org, www.safetyvision.com.
