SAN DIEGO, April 16, 2008 -- Photron Inc. said its new 4-megapixel Fastcam SA2 high-speed video camera delivers up to 1000 frames per second (fps) at full pixel resolution (2000 x 2000).

Features include a PL lens mount, superior color fidelity, exceptional light sensitivity and crisp image quality, Photron said. Additional speeds and resolutions are available, including high definition 1080p up to 2000 fps, 720p resolution to 4000 fps, and 512 x 416 pixel resolution up to 10,000 fps.

PhotronFastcamSA2.jpgThe new 12-bit CMOS camera with a PL lens mount captures high-speed events for slow-motion replay, making it especially suitable for a variety of broadcast applications in sports and entertainment. Other applications include automotive crash testing, ballistic and missile testing, biomedical imaging and industrial motion analysis, the company said.

Photron said the Fastcam SA2 imager can be easily integrated into existing systems via the user-select button on the rear panel or via the Gigabit Ethernet interface. An optional RS422 remote keypad control offers added versatility with a built-in 5-in. LCD color display for viewing slow-motion recording and playback, without the need for an attached computer.

Photron said it is performing live demonstrations of the Fastcam SA2 this week at the National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) Show in Las Vegas (Booth SL9520).

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...
In optics, an image is the reconstruction of light rays from a source or object when light from that source or object is passed through a system of optics and onto an image forming plane. Light rays passing through an optical system tend to either converge (real image) or diverge (virtual image) to a plane (also called the image plane) in which a visual reproduction of the object is formed. This reconstructed pictorial representation of the object is called an image.
The technology of generating and harnessing light and other forms of radiant energy whose quantum unit is the photon. The science includes light emission, transmission, deflection, amplification and detection by optical components and instruments, lasers and other light sources, fiber optics, electro-optical instrumentation, related hardware and electronics, and sophisticated systems. The range of applications of photonics extends from energy generation to detection to communications and...
1. In optics, the ability of a lens system to reproduce the points, lines and surfaces in an object as separate entities in the image. 2. The minimum adjustment increment effectively achievable by a positioning mechanism. 3. In image processing, the accuracy with which brightness, spatial parameters and frame rate are divided into discrete levels.
Referring to the bandwidth and spectrum location of the signal produced by television or radar scanning.
