FLIR Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: FLIR) is pleased to announce the launch of the Raymarine Ray70 Multifunction VHF Marine Radio and the LightHouse II Version 12 Software upgrade for Raymarine multifunction displays. Raymarine’s new line of VHF radios are being showcased this week at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show 2014.

As Raymarine’s new flagship VHF, Ray70 streamlines multiple communication tools into a single device. The Ray70’s integral Automatic Identification System (AIS) receiver simplifies installation and delivers critical vessel traffic information to compatible navigation displays. Combine the Ray70 with an optional RayMic remote and boaters can enjoy the flexibility of dual station control and intercom capability. The Ray70 is being launched alongside the new Ray60 VHF and the ultra-compact Ray50 VHF, each radio features audiophile-quality speakers, noise-canceling technology, and a sharp new design that matches perfectly with Raymarine MFDs and Glass Bridge displays.

LightHouse II Version 12 is the latest quarterly upgrade for Raymarine multifunction navigation displays. New in this release is support for a quad-split video display of connected IP video cameras. Raymarine users can now view and record four live camera streams simultaneously, as well as capture snap shots and video with a simple touch of the MFD’s screen.

“Raymarine continues to deliver innovative, high-performance products that enhance safety and reduce stress so boaters can truly enjoy their time on the water,” said FLIR President and CEO, Andy Teich. “The new multifunction Ray70 radio dramatically enhances a vessel’s communications systems and our latest release of LightHouse II transforms Raymarine navigation displays into powerful onboard video monitoring and recording systems.”
