This might be old hat to the rest of you, but I’m curious whether anyone is doing anything with realtime digital video capture with their infrared cameras.
I’ve been experimenting with it and think that if properly done, it can be a great marketing tool. It would also be useful for documenting some types of inspections. For instance: here in the Houston area, we did a ton of storm damage inspections following hurricane Ike. On the occasions that I had the opportunity to meet with a client’s insurance adjuster, the adjuster really keyed off my guidance regarding areas that were wet, but did not show obvious signs. These areas wouldn’t have been included in the claim otherwise (I used both IR and moisture meters for this). A video might be a great thing to be able to give to those clients who won’t be seeing their adjusters for a while (some adjusters take several weeks to get to a site).
Here’s a short 1 minute video I captured with my camera. I need to figure out how to capture audio at the same time.
Have any of you been doing video caps? if so, how do you do it? Do you include audio? How do you use the videos?
