FirstLook360 is a hybrid hardware/software product utilizing dual cameras and custom-built software to stitch multiple live video streams together and create a smooth image landscape that can be viewed and manipulated on a mobile device (Tablet or Smartphone). Additionally, the digital streams broadcast in HD quality and are designed to transmit both wired and/or wirelessly to any Android powered mobile device (Tablet/Smartphone).
Current economic conditions are driving the fire service to rethink how Technical & Rescue Operations are conducted and the resources and equipment needed to achieve a successful outcome. Visual search equipment in use today has advanced minimally since it was first introduced in the 1990’s. Any rescuer experienced in the area of technical search can easily point out the weak areas of current visual search camera’s; they are heavy, the mechanical articulation of the camera head is prone to damage, quick battery drain, configurations are static and the units are an expensive “one trick pony”. FL360 increases battery power, decreases search time, and allows a multipurpose tool that can be used in various technical rescue applications.
