High-Speed Video Camera - Hyper Vision HPV-X2

Human eyes are unable to capture phenomena happening at times shorter than 50 to 100 ms. Therefore, high-speed video cameras have become essential so as to record phenomena occurring at intervals that cannot be observed with the human eye, and then replay them at a slower rate to facilitate visualization. Shimadzu’s HPV-X2 high-speed video camera, with its combination of excellent sensitivity and speed, is the perfect platform for observing hard-to-see phenomena such as the automotive fuel injection process, the process of manufacturing nanomaterials, and the printer ink ejection process.

Features

Ultra-High-Speed Recording

The HPV-X 2 includes the next-generation FTCMOS2 burst image sensor, wherein the pixels and memory are spatially separated to accomplish high image quality without any signal leaks. This avoids issues with conventional CCD technology, such as poor image quality, and results in:

  • High-resolution recording at ultra-high speed
  • Ultra-high-speed recording at 10 million frames per second

Larger, Clearer Photosensitivity

Adoption of the FTCMOS2 image sensor results in a radical increase in signal-to-noise ratio, producing clearer images compared to conventional products (if the optical systems are the same).

High-Speed, Multi-camera Synchronized Recording

A phenomenon can be analyzed in great detail with synchronized recording using two cameras at a frame rate of 10 million frames/second. The HPV-X2 can also be used along with commercially available software for 3D image and numerical analysis, such as attaining strain distributions during material tests.

Windows-Compatible Control Software

Using the Windows-compatible software, the camera operation can be controlled, recording conditions can be monitored, and recorded data can be compared. Recorded images can be saved in standard formats such as AVI, JPEG, BMP, and TIFF.
