The Phantom v1210 and v1610 high-speed cameras feature high-definition and widescreen 1280 x 800-pixel CMOS sensors. The Phantom v1610 can acquire more than 16,000 frames/sec at full resolution and up to 1 million frames/sec at reduced resolution. sensors with larger 28-micron pixels allow low-light sensitivity. The cameras can be configured with 24, 48, or 96 Gbytes of memory, which can be segmented into up to 63 partitions and allows continuous shooting. The cameras offer 12-bit pixel depth standard. CineMag interface is standard with both cameras. Connections include timecode, dual power inputs, HD-SDI, GPS input, camera synchronization, and trigger.

NEW PRODUCT PRESS RELEASE

Vision Research Now Shipping Market-Leading Phantom v1210 and v1610 Digital High-Speed Cameras

WAYNE, N.J. – Vision Research, a leading manufacturer of digital high-speed imaging systems, is shipping the Phantom v1210 and v1610, the newest additions to the company’s v-series of digital high-speed cameras. These top-of-their-class cameras are the world’s fastest 1 megapixel digital high-speed cameras, and feature high definition and widescreen 1280 x 800 CMOS sensors. The Phantom v1610 is 60 percent faster than any other camera on the market, with the ability to acquire more than 16,000 frames-per-second (fps) at full resolution and up to 1,000,000 fps at reduced resolution.

Both cameras are based on Vision Research proprietary sensors offering not only high speeds, but larger 28-micron pixels that allow for superior sensitivity when shooting in low light, which is often a problem with high-speed imaging. The v-Series additions make possible image capture at more than 12,000 fps (12 gigapixels/second) in full resolution when utilizing the v1210, and more than 16,000 fps (16 gigapixels/second) when the v1610 is called into action. If higher speeds are needed, reduced resolution images are available up to 650,000 fps or up to 1,000,000 fps when the FAST option is used.

The v1210 and v1610 can be configured with 24GB, 48GB, or 96GB of memory. That memory can be segmented into as many as 63 partitions and allows continuous shooting of back-to-back shots without the need for constant downloading. The cameras offer 12-bit pixel depth standard.

Phantom CineMag Workflow
Both cameras come standard with Vision Research’s breakthrough CineMag interface allowing a user to save a high-speed shot from camera memory to non-volatile storage in a matter of seconds. With a CineMag mounted on the camera, a user can continue to conduct tests and experiments without the time-consuming task of downloading large amounts of data over Ethernet.

Camera Control
The cameras come with built-in on-camera controls (OCC), allowing most camera settings to be set or changed with the turn of a knob – eliminating the need for connection to a PC or laptop for camera control.

Phantom v1210 and v1610 Outputs and Inputs
The Phantom v1210 and v1610 connections are conveniently located on the back panel of the camera. These include timecode, dual power inputs, HD-SDI, GPS input, camera synchronization, and trigger.

Additional High Performance Features:
-Full Resolution 1280 x 800 imaging
-Image-Based Auto-Trigger
-10Gb Ethernet port
-Internal Mechanical Shutter
-SMPTE & IRIG timecode, Genlock, Ready, and Strobe Outputs
-Frame Synchronization to internal or external clock (FSYNC)
-HD-SDI video outputs
-Component Viewfinder Port
-Nikon F-mount lens connection with Canon EOS, PL, and C mounts available
