Product Details

FLIR Boson
Product Description

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.

    Is the boson 320 shown in the videos the consumer version or industrial/pro?

  • 9zi7mnmg normal

    Consumer. Unless you are doing high end science or operating in fairly extreme conditions, the consumer grade version is more than sufficient.

    How does focus work with the lens? I've had a Ratheon PalmIR-250 for many years with the 75mm motorized lens focus and a ~15 ft to inf range. I don't think I've seen a boson video with a good critical focus, or seen the focus change.
