The FLIR Boson longwave infrared (LWIR) thermal camera core is a giant leap forward in thermal imaging performance, size, and price. With its embedded Movidius Myriad 2 12-core image processor, wide range of lens options, physical shutter, and FLIR's XIR™ expandable infrared video processing architecture, it allows system integrators to take their thermal applications to far greater heights. Perform on-board video analytics, drive external sensors and peripherals, and communicate over multiple standard communication interfaces such as USB 3.0 with Boson.
