ObjectVideo has signed a global, nonexclusive, royalty-bearing patent license with thermal imaging infrared camera manufacturer FLIR Systems. 

The agreement provides FLIR with developmental flexibility, and offers protection for customers deploying FLIR's intelligent video solutions, such as the company’s FSM Pro software. It also covers the traffic, safety and control products offered by Traficon, a FLIR subsidiary.

“We are pleased to provide FLIR with a license to our intellectual property, which will help FLIR and its customers develop new, market leading intelligent thermal and traffic control products,” says Chris Capuano, general counsel, ObjectVideo.

The latest arrangement makes FLIR ObjectVideo’s 17th patent licensee. Others include Panasonic, Sony, Pelco, Bosch, Tyco/American Dynamics, Vivotek, UDP, Agent Vi, VideoIQ, IntelliVision, ViDiCore, Aimetis, 3VR and InStore Logic.
