A new commercial camera with IR-FusionTM blends visible and infrared images into a single image. It uses a novel, low-cost, patent pending approach to solve the parallax problem and results in a camera with the image sharpness and clarity of a standard digital visible camera and the temperature measurement of an infrared camera. The camera can operate in three modes; 1) full screen visible, infrared or blended, 2) partial infrared image in a full screen visible image (picture-in-picture) and 3) infrared color alarm in a visible image. With the use of a laser pointer the camera operator can precisely identify locations on the target that correspond to specific points in the infrared image.
