SAN DIEGO, Jan. 21, 2010 – Photron Inc. has updated its Photron Fastcam Viewer (PFV) software for advanced functionality in high-speed camera control and slow-motion video replay. The new intuitive user interface provides easy access to creating and replaying image sequences from industry-standard file formats, including avi (Windows video), mov (Apple QuickTime video), tiff ( 8- or 26-bit file formats), jpeg, bmp (bitmap), png (portable network graphics), raw and raww (native camera file formats).

Videos saved using the software will automatically replay at a user-selected speed from 1 to 1000 fps. When the video is opened with Windows Media Player or Apple QuickTime, it autoplays at the desired slow-motion rate. The software also quizzes the host computer to see which compression codecs are installed and provides a list so that users wishing to compress the saved files can easily do so.

New features available with PFV version 3 include binning options to increase light gathering sensitivity, video trigger to detect motion within the image displayed, bit shift to select which eight of the 12 bits are displayed for increased light sensitivity, an enhanced navigation mode that divides the display area into nine squares, each controlling a different and selectable camera function, and MatLab drivers for easy camera integration into the user’s existing work flow.

The software downloads images from all of the company’s cameras and controls all but the FastCam PCI. It offers play forward or reverse, single-frame advance, electronic zoom and pan, histogram, a dynamic range slider bar, image cropping, manual tracking and angle measurements, and an RGB, contrast, brightness and gamma look-up table.
