CENTENNIAL, CO, September 23, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ — ISTEC ICE Ltd., (www.istec-ice.com), an electronic systems design and manufacturing company located in Hertford UK, has signed a two way deal with Liteye Systems, Inc. (www.liteye.com), a manufacture of thermal surveillance systems, in Centennial Colorado. Under this new agreement Liteye will distribute, develop, and support a line of OEM offerings as well as finished commercial products utilizing ISTEC ICE’s technology for digital image fusion. In return Liteye will be providing OEM thermal camera solutions to ISTEC ICE to support their line of products made in the UK.
The move is designed to strengthen and bolster sales into military, homeland security, and commercial security markets in the USA, as well as supply OEM solutions to systems integrators and product developers in other areas. Liteye will be supplying ISTEC ICE with custom OEM thermal camera solutions to support their development and manufacturing in the UK.
Mick Coulson, CEO of ISTEC ICE, said: “We are delighted to be working together with Liteye Systems. The combination of our new digital image fusion technology and Liteye’s abilities will allow us to supply and support offerings to a wide US market place.”
Under the terms of the agreement, Liteye will act as US sales, development, assembly, support, and service for a range of OEM solutions and finished products including a new handheld surveillance camera in the USA. In the UK Liteye will supply ISTEC ICE with custom OEM thermal imager packages for use in their products.
“This was a natural fit” said Tom Scott, President of Liteye Systems, “Liteye already supplies OLED microdisplays, thermal cameras, optics, and other technologies to assist our customers develop finished systems. The addition of ISTEC ICE’s fusion adds a new level of sophistication to those offerings.” He added, “We are all excited by the prospects this agreement will open up for both our companies.”
Digital image fusion is the process by which two or more images are combined into a single image, whilst still retaining the important features from each of the original images. This gives the combined advantage of the detection capabilities of a Thermal Imager with the identification capability of a low light level day camera.
