SAN DIEGO, March 25, 2010 – Photron Inc. has announced the Fastcam BC2, a high-definition video camera designed for television broadcast, commercials and motion picture production.

With a 12-bit dynamic range and 2000 × 2000-pixel resolution at 1000 fps, the artifact-free electronically cooled CMOS sensor provides resolution of 1920 × 1080 at up to 2000 fps and reduced resolution at more than 86,000 fps. The camera is compatible with the Sony HDVF-C30WR HD viewfinder and with PL, B4 and Nikon F-mount lenses, making it easy to interface with new or existing broadcast equipment.

It features instant playback via the dual HD-SDI outputs on the back panel, a 2.76-µs shutter and low noise. Camera control is via the on-camera button, the RS-422 port (also used by the remote control keypad) or the RJ45 Gigabit Ethernet interface. Videos recorded using proprietary Fastcam Viewer software will automatically replay at the user-selected speed via the HD-SDI outputs or can be downloaded via Gigabit-Ethernet for later viewing.

GLOSSARY
camera
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...
lens
A transparent optical component consisting of one or more pieces of optical glass with surfaces so curved (usually spherical) that they serve to converge or diverge the transmitted rays from an object, thus forming a real or virtual image of that object.
resolution
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.
shutter
A mechanical or electronic device used to control the amount of time that a light-sensitive material is exposed to radiation.
viewfinder
A device, optical or electronic, that may be joined to a camera so that the operator may perceive the scene as the camera does.
