  • Hyper Vision HPV-1 High-Speed Video Camera

Video Camera Records at 1 Million FPS
COLUMBIA, Md., Aug. 16 -- Shimadzu Scientific Instruments Inc., a developer of analytical instrumentation, introduces its new Hyper Vision HPV-1 ultrahigh-speed video camera. Capable of recording up to 1 million frames per second (fps), Shimadzu's new camera combines speed of operation with the ability to maintain image clarity at high frame rates.

At recording speeds in the range 30 to 1 million fps, the HPV-1 produces high-definition images at a resolution of 312 x 260 -- up to 80,000 pixels per image. It can be used by researchers, developers and engineers, diagnosticians and others who need to take very high-speed images in a wide range of settings. The HPV-1 can also store a large number of shots. With storage capabilities built directly into the camera's imaging chip, 100 monochrome shots can be saved in BMP, TIF or AVI formats.
   The HPV-1, which can be used with general-purpose Nikon F-mount SLR lenses, also features control unit software that permits quick-start recording and employs a newly-developed image sensor chip to record the video. This sensor chip combines charge-coupled device (CCD) technology with a design that expands the light-sensitive area per pixel, to deliver sharp images in a broad range of lighting conditions. And with the variety of available trigger options, users can set their trigger point at any frame and can vary the frame speed after that point to better suit their needs.

A light-tight box that receives light from an object or scene and focuses it to form an image on a light-sensitive material or a detector. The camera generally contains a lens of variable aperture and a shutter of variable speed to precisely control the exposure. In an electronic imaging system, the camera does not use chemical means to store the image, but takes advantage of the sensitivity of various detectors to different bands of the electromagnetic spectrum. These sensors are transducers...
