Infrared radiation – invisible to the naked eye – directly corresponds to temperature and heat output. An infrared image can show areas from which heat may be escaping a building, failing machine components, or overheated electrical systems. However, infrared cameras have historically been extremely expensive, delicate, and designed for use by trained specialists.

IEM has addressed a variety of technical, economic, and usability challenges to develop an infrared camera that can obtain, process, fuse, and display images in near-real time, can display the visible and IR images in multiple formats as desired by the user, and can produce effective and accurate higher-resolution images from very low resolution raw data. IEM’s IVI Camera provides all of these features at a small fraction of the cost of competing camera systems.
