We merge visible and thermal streams on a pixel-by-pixel basis, prioritizing the most salient elements in each stream to generate an enhanced fused result. We accommodate both analog and digital video and input streams can be of different resolution. Digital registration between the thermal and visible camera is also available.

In this scenario the visible camera records the license plate, but the thief is not visible. In the thermal image the thief is visible, but the cool license plate is invisible. In the fused image, both the license plate and the thief are visible. Fusion is useful when both thermal and visible components of the scene are required.
