Photron Donates Camera to MIT

Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Email Comments
Photron Inc., a high-speed imaging systems and image analysis software manufacturer based in San Diego, is donating a video system to the Edgerton Center at MIT for long-term use by students and researchers. The center was named for MIT’s professor Harold E. “Doc” Edgerton, known for his innovations in high-speed imaging and support for hands-on learning. Photron’s Fastcam SA5 camera provides up to 7500 frames per second (fps) at megapixel resolution (1024 × 1000); it is capable of delivering more than 1 million fps at reduced resolution. The stand-alone, one-piece imaging system has a 12-bit monochrome, 36-bit RGB color sensor that features 20-micron square pixels for dynamic range and high color fidelity. The camera system will be used to help the Edgerton Center provide hands-on high-speed imaging experiences for students and enhanced imaging capabilities for researchers.
