Thermal Camera for High Definition Videos

FLIR Systems has created a powerful visual gallery of media clips illustrating how a growing number of professional media outlets are using FLIR High Definition thermal imaging cameras for shooting TV commercials, feature stories and music videos.

The popular Secret Earth program on the History Channel showed some startling thermal imaging footage using a FLIR SC8300 HD high speed camera to capture the activity of geysers at the world-famous Yellowstone National Park.

Nike used FLIR’s SC8313 HD thermal camera to film a commercial for the introduction of their Therma-Sphere Max thermoregulating composite technology designed for cold weather training. The blending of visual and thermal images during high speed athletic training with Victor Cruz is used to show how well their new Therma-Sphere Max technology works to keep the athlete warm.

The song Midnight from Coldplay’s sixth album Ghost Stories was filmed almost entirely in HD thermal using FLIR’s SC8303 thermal camera. Though being in grayscale it might appear as a standard visual camera, it is mostly all thermal footage. Artistically, they chose grayscale and a blue colour palette for the eye catching thermal footage.
