SANTA BARBARA, Calif., Dec. 14, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Avid outdoorsman, professional hog hunter, and TV personality Brian "Pigman" Quaca is joining forces with thermal image technology innovator Seek Thermal to help further evangelize the company's line of affordable thermal imaging products for sport and everyday hunters. As part of the multi-faceted strategic marketing and branded content media relationship, Seek Thermal will take on a sponsorship role within Leupold's Pigman: the Series on the Sportsman Channel. Seek's products will be integrated into the network and show to help educate viewers on the benefits of personal thermal imaging devices. Specifically, how they help hunters to quickly identify their target and make smarter, safer decisions. In addition, Brian's expertise around hunting products and accessories will help Seek define and design the right products for this target audience, and support in-store promotional efforts with key retail channels.
"Getting behind Seek Thermal was a no-brainer," says Brian "Pigman" Quaca. "For my fans and everyday hunters everywhere, the Seek smartphone CompactXR and soon the RevealXR will revolutionize the way we hunt. Imagine always having the advantage of knowing what the rustling leaves are in complete darkness while you sit in your tree stand or increasing the odds of the recovery of game because you can spot it in the pitch black, even hours after it has died. That's a game changer in our industry where so many flashlights and spray gimmicks have failed consumers time and time again, and I'm thrilled to accomplish this with a great company."
Brian will be on hand at the Seek Thermal booth at the 2016 SHOT Show Industry Day at the Range on Monday, January 18th from 1:30 – 3:30 p.m for interviews and autograph signing.
"Today's biggest challenge isn't the technology, it's affordability. The synergy between Brian's mission in the sport of hunting and Seek's vision of accessible thermal image tools, is a perfect match," says Tracy Benson, Global VP of Seek Thermal. "Brian's understanding of the sport and his empathy for the everyday hunter, will help guide our energy and efforts to make thermal imaging available to all outdoorsmen."
Up until now, thermal image devices for the outdoors have been upwards of $1,300-$5,000 and affordable by few. Seek Thermal's award-winning CompactXR thermal image camera plugs directly into your iOS or Android device, and in seconds, can detect temperatures from -40 degrees up to 626 degrees Fahrenheit, with the ability to detect heat up to 1,800 feet away. This quickly gives hunters the ability to track game, scout terrain, and guarantee recovery of downed animals. The product also allows people to more easily navigate in the darkness and scan around a campsite for predators, all for a price point of under $300. The company intends to create other camo-inspired products designed in partnership with Pigman and True Timber early this spring.
The Seek CompactXR ($299) is available at thermal.com, amazon.com, select Home Depot and Lowe's stores nationwide.
