Flir has released Flir Viewer, an app that uses a thermal imaging camera's built-in Wi-Fi capability to enable it to connect easily to an iPad, iPod Touch, or iPhone. Once connected, a Flir thermal imaging camera can send images and other data to an Apple mobile device wirelessly.
The app lets users download images from their camera, change colour palettes, analyse the images, add data, create reports, upload to 'the cloud' and e-mail thermal images to other colleagues. There are a series of sample images that can be downloaded to the application so that any user can experience the functionality of the application for free, even without a camera.
The free version of the app is available to download from the Apple iTunes Store.
