FEBRUARY 13, 2009--The HiSpec, a low-light, high-speed camera for industrial and research applications, features a monochrome ASA rating of 2500 to capture images without high-intensity lights at 1.3 Mpixels. It can record up to 500 frames/s at a resolution of 1280 x 1024 pixels and up to 113,000 frames/s at reduced resolution. The software-based auto-trigger only requires the user to specify a region of interest in the field of view. Any change in the preset image area will stop the recording and save the event sequence in memory. No special hardware or intrusive wiring is required. With burst trigger mode, researchers and production line operators can capture multiple image sequences in memory without downloading. Separate events can be recorded over an extended period of time. Standard contact closure and TTL triggers are also available. A Gigabit Ethernet interface allows the user to operate multiple cameras from any standard notebook /PC over a distance of 100 m.

PRESS RELEASE

Fastec Imaging Corporation announces the HiSpec Low-Light High-Speed Camera

San Diego, CA - Fastec Imaging Corporation has announced the HiSpec camera, an innovative low-light high-speed camera for industrial and research applications.

Until now, lighting could be a challenge with high-speed imaging. No more! With a monochrome ASA rating of 2500, images can be captured in superb detail without the high-intensity lights required by some high-speed cameras. The unprecedented photo-sensitivity of the HiSpec enables high speed recordings at 1.3 megapixels under normal lighting conditions.

Its blazing speed makes the HiSpec ideal for a wide range of applications. The HiSpec can record up to 500 frames per second (fps) at a resolution of 1280x1024 pixels and up to 113,000 fps at reduced resolution.

The HiSpec's unique software-based auto-trigger makes it easy to capture those elusive random events. Simply specify a "region of interest" in the field of view and the software takes over. Any change in the pre-set image area will stop the recording and save the event sequence in memory. No special hardware or intrusive wiring is required.

With the HiSpec's burst trigger mode, researchers and production line operators can capture multiple image sequences in the memory without downloading. Separate events can easily be recorded over an extended period of time. Standard contact closure and TTL triggers are also available.

The HiSpec's Gigabit Ethernet interface allows the user to operate multiple cameras from any standard Notebook /PC over a distance of 100 meters. Equipped with a ruggedized industrial Ethernet plug with fastening screws, the HiSpec is designed for easy operation in virtually any industrial or laboratory environment.

The HiSpec camera is available worldwide through Fastec's international distributor organization.
