Seek Thermal to Showcase Line of Affordable Personal Thermal Imaging Cameras at FDIC International 2016

Company aims to put TICs in the hands of every fire professional to aid in search and rescue missions and ultimately put out fires faster.

SANTA BARBARA, CA, APRIL 20, 2016 — At the 2016 FDIC International show, Seek Thermal™ is showcasing its line of breakthrough, affordable and portable personal thermal image cameras (TICs). The Seek Reveal and extended range version, the Seek RevealXR FastFrame, combine an award-winning thermal imager with a high-performance 300-Lumen LED light into one hand-held device to offer the accessibility, portability and features needed for fire professionals involved in critical search and rescue missions.                                          

Until now, TICs have been prohibitively expensive, with budget constraints typically allowing for only one or two per firehouse. Seek Thermal is looking to change that by developing a cost-effective alternative that aims to put a TIC into the hands of every fire professional. With the ability to see and read heat, TICs aid in search and rescue missions by helping to track, scout and find adults, children, and especially elderly, even through smoke, so that fire professionals can safely and quickly clear a location.

“There is no question that new technologies are constantly improving our ability to perform our duties in the field, but if we can’t afford to get the tools into the hands of all the firefighters, it doesn’t maximize the benefits,” said Executive Director of the Fire Department Safety Officers Association Rich Marinucci. “We are proud to say that several firefighters are already using Seek products in the field. This benefits us in many ways and not just on the fire ground. TICs are invaluable during a fire including saving lives, clearing buildings faster, and even saving the building or home itself.”

“As a company, we see so many benefits to making thermal imaging available to fire safety, search and rescue teams –and this is a prime example of how important TIC’s are to each and every member of a squad,” said Tracy Benson, VP of Global Marketing for Seek Thermal. “When lives and safety is on the line, thermal imaging technology can be a powerful tool for detection and inspection.”

The Seek Reveal in Blue
The Seek Reveal features intuitive controls, an ergonomic grip, hi-res display and a detectable range of -40° to 626° Fahrenheit. With just the touch of a button, Reveal provides powerful thermal insight by identifying and measuring specific sources of heat—and heat loss—up to 500 feet away. Additionally, a high-performance 300 lumen LED spotlight gives you a quick click method to select desired lighting functions.

Data capture, storing and sending images from the Reveal is easy so that fire professionals can report back on failed components and more. Integrated connectivity allows you to quickly transfer captured thermal images to any computer or tablet through a USB connector.

The Seek RevealXR FastFrame in Black
Built for long-range detection and identification, the Seek RevealXR FastFrame features a >15Hz frame rate, a 20-degree field of view, and a detectable thermal imaging distance of up to 275 meters away. Its rugged and innovative handheld design makes it easy to capture infrared images in outdoor conditions day or night, near or far and includes a powerful 300-lumen LED flashlight. The products also feature a color display and a 206x156 thermal sensor allowing users to see and snap quality thermal images. Store, save and transfer photos to your computer or tablet using the USB cable or microSD card provided. The rechargeable lithium battery included has a runtime of 10+ hours, perfect for extending your time outdoors while seeking a new advantage.

Seek Thermal is exhibiting at FDIC Booth Number 9731 at Lucas Oil Stadium, April 21-23, 2016. For more info see www.FDIC.com.  For pricing and availability, or to schedule a meeting at FDIC, contact sales@thermal.com.

Seek Thermal Turns Up The Heat On Big Game Hunting By Joining Forces With Wild Tv’s Top-Rated Show “The Edge”

Wild TV The Edge.jpg

SANTA BARBARA, Calif - (January 7, 2016) – Just in time for the Archery Trade Association (ATA) Show, thermal imaging innovator Seek Thermal announces its partnership with “The EDGE”, Wild TV’s top-rated TV show which has showcased hunting in North America for more than six years. The strategic marketing partnership and sponsorship will broaden exposure of Seek’s line of affordable thermal imaging devices in a market where big game hunting, among other outdoor activities, is not only a serious passion but also a lifestyle. The program follows experienced hunters and avid outdoorsmen Jeff Coyle, Steve Ecklund and Helgie Eymundson, on their never-ending quest for big game in North America. Seek’s products will be integrated into the show to educate those in the sport about the advantages personal thermal imagers offer, from staying out longer to making smarter and safer decisions.
“Safety is a huge factor in our sport. When we’re trekking unknown terrain on the hunt for whitetail, elk, moose or whatever it may be, thermal imaging technology can be a life saver. Especially in the extreme conditions that big game hunters often face up here,” says Jeff Coyle. “When our fans see the Seek CompactXR for smartphones and the upcoming RevealXR in action, I think it’s going to be eye opening for a whole lot of them. It's an exciting, affordable and versatile new product that is not only a great tool for hunting, but is very effective in helping the hunter stay safe on those long walks out in the dark or even just around camp at night."
 
“Thermal imaging technology isn’t new, but it’s our mission to finally make it available to the masses,” says Tracy Benson, Global VP of Seek Thermal. “In a market where hunting is so relevant, we seek to educate these hunters and outdoorsmen not only on the significant sport and safety benefits it offers, but also its newfound affordability. Teaming up with Wild TV and “The EDGE” will help us achieve this thanks to the obvious passion, knowledge and respect that Jeff, Steve and Helgie have for hunting and their enthusiastic audience they’ve built over the past six years.” 
 
Until now, thermal imaging devices for the outdoors were only affordable to few, costing upwards of $1,300-$5,000. Seek Thermal’s award-winning CompactXR thermal image camera plugs directly into your iOS or Android device, and can instantly detect temperatures from -40° to 330° Celsius (-40° to 626° Fahrenheit) up to 550 meters (1,800 feet) away. For under $300, this gives hunters the affordability to track game, scout terrain, and recover downed animals quicker. It also allows people to easily navigate in darkness and scan around a campsite for predators. Early this spring, Seek Thermal plans to introduce camo-inspired products in partnership with True Timber.
 
The Seek CompactXR ($299) is available at thermal.com and amazon.com. For Canadian product availability please visit our store locator and put in your postal code to find the nearest Canadian dealer selling Seek Thermal Cameras.

Seek Thermal And Hunting Luminary Brian “Pigman” Quaca Partner Up To Bring The Power Of Affordable Thermal Imaging To The Outdoors

SANTA BARBARA, Calif - (December 14, 2015) – Avid outdoorsman, professional hog hunter, and TV personality Brian “Pigman” Quaca is joining forces with thermal image technology innovator Seek Thermal to help further evangelize the company’s line of affordable thermal imaging products for sport and everyday hunters. As part of the multi-faceted strategic marketing and branded content media relationship, Seek Thermal will take on a sponsorship role within Leupold’s Pigman: the Series on the Sportsman Channel. Seek’s products will be integrated into the network and show to help educate viewers on the benefits of personal thermal imaging devices. Specifically, how they help hunters to quickly identify their target and make smarter, safer decisions. In addition, Brian’s expertise around hunting products and accessories will help Seek define and design the right products for this target audience, and support in-store promotional efforts with key retail channels.
 
“Getting behind Seek Thermal was a no-brainer,” says Brian “Pigman” Quaca. “For my fans and everyday hunters everywhere, the Seek smartphone CompactXR and soon the RevealXR will revolutionize the way we hunt. Imagine always having the advantage of knowing what the rustling leaves are in complete darkness while you sit in your tree stand or increasing the odds of the recovery of game because you can spot it in the pitch black, even hours after it has died. That’s a game changer in our industry where so many flashlights and spray gimmicks have failed consumers time and time again, and I’m thrilled to accomplish this with a great company.”
 
Brian will be on hand at the Seek Thermal booth at the 2016 SHOT Show Industry Day at the Range on Monday, January 18th from 1:30 – 3:30 p.m for interviews and autograph signing. 
 
“Today’s biggest challenge isn’t the technology, it’s affordability. The synergy between Brian’s mission in the sport of hunting and Seek’s vision of accessible thermal image tools, is a perfect match,” says Tracy Benson, Global VP of Seek Thermal. “Brian’s understanding of the sport and his empathy for the everyday hunter, will help guide our energy and efforts to make thermal imaging available to all outdoorsmen.”
 
Up until now, thermal image devices for the outdoors have been upwards of $1,300-$5,000 and affordable by few. Seek Thermal’s award-winning CompactXR thermal image camera plugs directly into your iOS or Android device, and in seconds, can detect temperatures from -40° up to 626° Fahrenheit, wiith the ability to detect heat up to 1,800 feet away. This quickly gives hunters the ability to track game, scout terrain, and guarantee recovery of downed animals. The product also allows people to more easily navigate in the darkness and scan around a campsite for predators, all for a price point of under $300.

Seek Thermal Announces Powerful Thermal Imaging and a High-Performance LED Light, Together in One Durable Device

Seek brings its award-winning thermal imaging technology to a new, pocket-sized device that’s easy-to-use and built for the field

SANTA BARBARA, CA, SEPTEMBER 30, 2015 – If you’re crawling around in a dark attic trying to figure out where heat is escaping a home, you don’t want to feel around every inch of insulation looking for gaps. You want to find it and fix it quickly. Seek Thermal’s new Reveal thermal imaging device allows you to see through the dark, putting professional-grade thermal imaging technology and a powerful LED light together in a durable, rubberized package that fits in your pocket or toolbox.

Built for the realities of work and play, Reveal features intuitive controls, an ergonomic grip, hi-res display and a detectable range of -40° to 626° Fahrenheit. With just the touch of a button, Reveal provides powerful thermal insight by identifying and measuring specific sources of heat—and heat loss—up to 500 feet away. Additionally, a high-performance 300 lumen LED spotlight gives you a quick click method to select desired lighting functions. Whether you’re a plumber searching for a clog, an electrician checking for an overload, a hunter tracking game, or a homeowner looking for peace of mind, Reveal delivers the insight and illumination you need to find, fix, and feel safe faster.

Data capture, storing and sending images from the Reveal is easy. Integrated connectivity allows you to quickly transfer captured thermal images to any computer or tablet through a USB connector. Keep a record of your discoveries—and share them with anyone in the world.

“Until recently, thermal imaging was expensive technology that was only available to those who could spend thousands on a single device,” said Mike Muench, Chief Executive Officer of Seek Thermal. “With our Compact and CompactXR thermal cameras, we paved the way for the consumer market by delivering military-proven technology in a portable and versatile device that attaches to any smartphone as a simple connect-and-detect. And, we learned that professionals, commercial contractors and smart tool DIY-ers may prefer a smart tool with the same advanced thermal imaging, yet tough enough for their toolboxes and great for low light situations. Reveal’s design was inspired by our customers’ need to find it quickly before they can fix it. Now anyone can use advanced thermal imaging and high-performance lighting to their own advantage.”

Reveal will be available online at www.thermal.com, Amazon.com, and through select retailers in time for holidays. With a suggested retail price of $399, Seek Reveal is an ideal tool for any contractor, plumber, electrician, or renovation-addict seeking to work smarter and save time.

Seek Thermal's Award-Winning Compact Line of Thermal Cameras Launch in Europe; Now Available in the U.K., Germany, France, Italy, Portugal, Spain, and The Netherlands at Amazon

BERLIN, Aug. 28, 2015 -- Seek Thermal, creators of heat-seeking tools to help save time, money and lives, announced today that its debut, award-winning line of Compact thermal imaging cameras is now available in Europe for both iPhone and Android smartphone users. The Seek Thermal Compact and Compact XR imaging cameras enable anyone to benefit in their day-to-day lives.

Up until now, thermal imaging cameras cost thousands of dollars and were primarily used by firefighters, law enforcement and the military. "Seek Thermal wants to make thermal imaging technology simple to use and accessible to all for the benefit of everyone, not just a few," said Mike Muench, CEO of Seek Thermal. "By introducing to the European market the first consumer-ready thermal imaging technology, which is portable, compact and affordable, we are giving millions of people a powerful smart tool and personal safety device at their fingertips."

Seek Thermal recently hosted BBC's flagship technology show BBC Click at the company's offices in Santa Barbara, CA. The special, which is airing on BBC Click and BBC World News, gives viewers a first-hand look at the technology that is bringing thermal imaging to all.

The Seek Thermal Compact imaging cameras contain an advanced thermal sensor and custom chalcogenide lens to capture, detect, and translate heat into a thermal image that's visible to the human eye. The pocket-size thermal camera operates with a free app that makes it easy for people to get started with thermal imaging, capture or share thermal photos and videos, select from different temperature measurement modes, and see the unseen.  Now, this military-grade technology makes it easier than its ever been to master home energy problems, conquer the outdoors and stay aware of the situations in the day time or complete dark.  The camera weighs only 0.5 ounces and creates true thermal images with a resolution of 206 x 156, or over 32,000 thermal pixels, and turns your smartphone into a smart tool.

Timed with the launch in Europe, the Seek Thermal Compact and Compact XR imaging cameras will be featured at the upcoming IFA Berlin 2015 consumer electronics trade show with the company's distribution partner Kondor in Booth Hall 4.2 / Stand 104. Press and media can also demo the products at the Pepcom DigitalFocus Event at IFA on 4 September 2015.

New Seek Thermal Camera Makes It Easy To Focus In On Your Target

$299 Smartphone Accessory for iOS and Android Lets You See the Unseen

LAS VEGAS, Jan. 20, 2015 -- Today at the SHOT Show® Industry Day at the Range, Seek Thermal™ announced the Seek XR, an extended range version of its award-winning thermal camera. Created with outdoor enthusiasts in mind, the Seek XR allows people to literally see heat, making it possible to spot people and animals in total darkness.

For hunters, the Seek XR can be used in daylight, the dark, or in obscured visibility conditions. It's useful for scouting, bloodtrailing, hunting game, and much more.

The new Seek XR has a manual focus lens for viewing objects at close range, or at distances of up to 2,000 feet.  The Seek XR will be available in January for both iOS and Android devices for $299 at thermal.com and Amazon.

"Until recently, the price of thermal imaging has kept it out of reach for almost everybody except military and law enforcement," said Seek Thermal founder, Bill Parrish. "Last year we introduced the first consumer thermal camera, and this new, extended-range camera is based in part on the specific feedback we received from gun experts, law enforcement, boaters and other people excited about thermal imaging."

Thermal imaging converts heat energy into an image that can be seen with the human eye. Traditionally, thermal cameras costing several thousand dollars and up have been used by firefighters, law enforcement and the military to see through smoke or in complete darkness. Seek Thermal has pioneered the next generation of thermal imaging technology sized and priced for the everyday consumer. Common ways to use thermal imaging include:

  • Hunting: Find game day or night, and use it for bloodtrailing.
  • Boating: Detect and locate objects on the water at night.
  • Safety and Security: Scan a dark parking lot before heading to your car; scan the yard before investigating a strange noise.
  • Home Improvement: Identify leaky windows and doors, insufficient insulation, and other sources of energy loss; trace water damage up a wall or across a ceiling to its source; and identify plumbing and electrical issues.

The Seek camera is a small device that plugs into the microUSB connector on Android devices and the LightningTM connector on iOS devices. A durable magnesium housing protects a next-generation thermal sensor and custom chalcogenide lens. It weighs only 0.5 ounces and creates true thermal images with a resolution of 206 x 156, or over 32,000 thermal pixels. Prior to today this kind of resolution was only available in thermal cameras costing several thousand dollars and up.

The Seek camera works with a free app that is available in the Apple App store and on Google Play. The app makes it easy for people to get started with thermal imaging, while also including a range of controls substantial enough for people who use the camera for serious work or serious fun. App features include:

  • Capture and share thermal photos and videos.
  • Select from different temperature measurement modes including the ability to automatically highlight everything in the scene that is above or below a specified temperature.
  • Select from nine different color palettes. Technically called "LUTs," they are different color ranges that can be applied to temperature measurements.
  • Swipe seamlessly back and forth between a regular and a thermal image in Thermal+ mode.

About Seek Thermal
Seek Thermal designs and manufacturers high quality thermal imaging products available at consumer price points. With headquarters in Santa Barbara, California, the global hub of thermal imaging innovation, the company has developed breakthrough camera platforms that will enable a range of affordable products for use at home, work and play.

Seek Thermal™ Announces It Will Bring Next-Generation Thermal Imaging To Mass Market

SANTA BARBARA, Calif.Aug. 19, 2014 -- After two years in stealth mode, Seek Thermal today announced that it is readying a consumer device that will bring true thermal imaging to the consumer market. Seek Thermal was founded by a team of industry pioneers who have spent decades advancing the state of military and professional-grade thermal technology. The company's new consumer camera will be available this fall and will be the smallest, most powerful and least expensive device of its kind.

Co-founders Bill Parrish and Tim Fitzgibbons have raised $30 million in funding, from private equity and institutional investors. Seek Thermal is Parrish's third thermal startup, and the first to focus on the consumer market. He and Fitzgibbons direct a world-class team of engineers, and have assembled a leadership team being led by President and CEO Robert Acker. The company is based in Santa Barbara, home to the world's foremost research and development facilities in thermal or infrared technology.

Thermal imaging measures heat and, based on even the slightest temperature differences, transforms it into a visual image. Unlike visible light, all objects radiate heat, or infrared "light," that can be seen by true thermal cameras. Whether in daylight or complete darkness, the average consumer will for the first time be able to see heat. The Seek Thermal Camera will allow people to find their cat hiding in a hedge, spot where heat is escaping from inefficient insulation, trace a water leak across a wall, know where a frying pan or grill is too hot or cold, or find objects floating in the water off a boat at night. The possibilities are literally endless.

"The high price of thermal imaging products have always restricted their use to firefighters, law enforcement professionals, high end contractors and military personnel," said Acker. "Seek Thermal will enable average consumers to 'see heat' for the first time. The killer app will be different for different people, but our beta testers are already identifying dozens of applications in home improvement, security, cooking, health and other areas."

For the past two years, Seek has worked in close collaboration with defense and aerospace leader, Raytheon, as well as Freescale, a leader in embedded processing solutions. Together the companies have developed a breakthrough 32,000 thermal pixel imaging chip. Combined with Seek's proprietary software and custom lenses, the resulting camera core will for the first time enable high quality thermal imaging at true consumer price points.

Seek is working with a variety of product manufacturers who are developing custom cameras around its core. The company will also release its own line of smartphone-connected cameras for both iOS and Android devices this fall.
