Dec 2008
Photron Inc., manufacturer of high speed cameras and motion analysis software systems, is Photron-FastCam2-SA-1.jpgsupplying their high speed Fastcam SA1 camera to the Discovery Channel’s new television series, “Time Warp.” The Fastcam SA1 will be used for slow motion imaging, which allows viewers to see “everyday” activities, animal behavior, human feats and fascinating phenomena in remarkable detail. Photron, located in San Diego, has teamed with co-hosts Jeff Lieberman, an MIT scientist and teacher, and digital photography expert Matt Kearney of Tech Imaging Services of Salem, Mass. The slow-motion camera offers superfast frame rates, capable of broadcasting extremely high resolution, high definition TV (HDTV) up to 5400 frames per second (fps). The camera can also achieve near HD resolution at up to 10,000 fps for “Time Warp.”

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...
