From low cost CCD-based systems for use with a PC, up to the world's fastest high-speed video camera, providing 3,000 mega pixel frames per second (fps).

Photron's High-Speed Digital Cameras to Replace Aging Film Cameras at Major Military Test Range

We recently won a contract from White Sands Missile Range (WSMR) in excess of $2 million to replace up to 26 aging 16- and 35-millimeter film camera systems with our ultima APX-RS digital high speed camera systems. The contract is the first step in replacing up to 75 film cameras at White Sands. Our ultima APX-RS slow-motion video imager captures 3000 fps at full 1024 x 1024 pixel resolution, up to 10,000 fps at 512 x 512 pixels and an unparalleled 250,000 fps at reduced resolution. The ruggedized, single-piece design makes this camera ideal for applications in harsh environments up to 100Gs.

PC-Based High-Speed Video Imaging

Photron recently introduced the FASTCAM-X1024 PCI™, the first PC-based high-speed video camera system with full megapixel resolution at 1000 fps. It is designed for use with a personal computer and shares the same super light-sensitive sensor and advanced function features as our high-g APX-RS slow motion video imager. The global electronic shutter operates down to 2 microseconds, providing crisp, clear images, regardless of the speed of the recorded object or process, making it ideal for imaging any high speed event.

Automated Slow-Motion Analysis and Camera Control Software

We also offer Motion Tools™, the only automated slow motion analysis camera control software available. Designed for use with our PC-based high speed video cameras, the software package is included at no additional charge.
