Vision Research, a
manufacturer of digital high-speed imaging systems, unveiled two additions to
the Phantom v-Series line of digital high-speed cameras—the Phantom v1210 and
v1610. These cameras are fast 1 megapixel digital high-speed
cameras. They feature high definition and widescreen 1280 by 800 CMOS sensors.
The Phantom v1610 is 60% faster than most cameras on the market, according to
the company, with the ability to acquire more than 16,000 frames-per-second
(fps) at full resolution and up to 1,000,000 fps at reduced resolution.
Both cameras are
based on Vision Research proprietary sensors offering high speeds and larger
28-micron pixels that allow for high sensitivity when shooting in low light.
The v-Series additions make possible image capture at more than 12,000 fps (12
gigapixels/second) in full resolution when utilizing the v1210, and more than
16,000 fps (16 gigapixels/second) when the v1610 is called into action. If
higher speeds are needed, reduced resolution images are available up to 650,000
fps or up to 1,000,000 fps when the FAST option is used.
The v1210 can be
configured with 12 GB, 24 GB, or 48 GB of memory, and the v1610, with 24 GB, 48
GB, or 96 GB of memory. That memory can be segmented into as many as 63
partitions and allows continuous shooting of back-to-back shots without the
need for constant downloading. The cameras offer 12-bit pixel depth standard.
