Vision Research announced that it has introduced a new 4 MP digital camera that is ideal for broadcast, military, research and scientific applications.
The Phantom v641 camera utilizes a new technology that features ultraslow-motion, high-definition potentials. The camera features dual cooling fans, two auxiliary power ports, and dual power inputs.
The Phantom v641’s remote port enables users to link the camera directly to the remote control unit. It has on-camera controls that allow users to access common camera operations. The unit has a timing resolution of less than 20 ns, making it ideal for image velocimetry applications. It comes with an image-based auto-trigger and an internal mechanical shutter.
The camera has dual HD-SDI ports that offer versatility for broadcast and video work flow applications. Both the ports can be used as 4:2:2 ports separately or configured as one dual-link 4:4:4 port. The camera has a 35 mm format sensor and offers a throughput of more than 6 gigapixel/s. It delivers high-resolution frame rates of 1450 fps with a minimum frame rate of 10 fps.
The Phantom v641 camera incorporates an inbuilt dynamic RAM of 8 GB. It has a segmented memory feature that enables users to segregate images up to a maximum of 63 segments. The camera’s global electronic shutter and shutter speeds down to 1 µs warrant clear images with very less image blurring.
