DJI Zenmuse XT FLIR Camera (pre order, expected delivery 2016)
The DJI XT FLIR Thermal imaging camera is the lateset camera and gimbal for the DJI Inspire 1, it allows the Inspire 1 to shoot IR video from the air. It has never been as easy as it is with the DJI Zenmuse XT to produce IR video. The combiniation of DJI’s unrivaled expertise in gimbal technology and image transmission and with the industry leading thermal imaging technology of FLIR, the Zenmuse XT is the ultimate solution for rapid and reliable aerial thermal imaging. Capture faster, with pinpoint precision, over large areas, this will save for analysis and reporting.
The camera on the DJI Zenmuse XT has been developed by FLIR. It provides high-sensitivity (50mK) infrared scanning at 640 x 512 / 25 fps or 336 x 256 / 25 fps (fps in PAL) . This sensitivity provides accurate temperature measurements ideal for analytics and telemetry. The Zenmuse XT is available with four lens options to meet different business needs. Stabilised and controlled by a custom DJI gimbal the IR video is smooth and clear with a 360 degree gimbal, the view is seamless when in rotational movement.
The DJI XT Infra-red imagery requires optimization to ensure maximum definition for capturing information. The Zenmuse XT features a suite of image enhancements designed by FLIR including Digital Detail Enhancement™ (DDE); Smart Scene Optimization™ (SSO), which enhances extremes in bi-modal scenes; Active Contrast Enhancement™ (ACE) that adjusts scene contrast relative to its temperature difference; and Information Based HEQ™ (IBHEQ) which compresses complex image data to create the best quality image.

The Zenmuse XT can be controlled completely through the DJI GO app, providing a real-time, low latency view of what the camera sees, and instant access to core camera functions including:
Spot metering, temperature measurement at the mid-point
Single or interval shooting modes
Photo, video preview and download
Take photos while recording video
Various camera settings and parameters including: Palette, also referred to as Look-up Table (LUT), Scene, also referred to as Automatic Gain, Correction (AGC), Region of Interest (ROI), Isotherm mode.
When the Zenmuse XT is used with either the Inspire 1 or the Matrice 100, the Zenmuse XT can be put into the air in seconds. It is seamlessly integrated, giving it complete access to key features including the powerful Lightbridge video transmission system (providing up to 3.1 miles (5KM*) of HD range), automated Point of Interest, Course and Home Lock, Follow Me, and the DJI SDK.
When combined with the Inspire 1, the Zenmuse XT works with incredible speed, efficiency and convenience. If used with the Matrice 100, the Zenmuse XT can stay in-flight for up to 35 minutes*, ideal for large scale inspections and especially useful in search and rescue scenarios.
