High speed imaging systems manufacturer celebrates 40 years

Photron : 28 August, 2008  (Company News)
Celebrations have taken place at the worldwide offices of Photron in recognition of 40 years trading in the high speed imaging market
Photron announces the fortieth anniversary of the company this month. Personnel from Europe, the US and Japan celebrated recently in Tokyo at their annual sales and marketing meeting.

Andrew Bridges, Photron's director of sales and marketing notes, "We are pleased to announce our forty years of excellence in the high speed imaging industry. Until 2000, our cameras were 'badged' and sold as Kodak products. Since then, our Photron label of high speed digital imaging and image processing software products have helped establish a new world standard in slow motion imaging and analysis. We are very proud that our extensive product line of high speed imaging cameras and systems has consistently delivered the highest resolution and the highest speeds (currently up to 5,400 fps at 1000 x 1000 pixels), available. We continue to set slow motion records with our new Fastcam SA2, a 4-megapixel high speed video camera."

Photron is currently garnering international attention for providing high speed, high definition TV imaging to 5,400 frames per second for sporting events during the Beijing 2008 games. Awarded the "Crash Test Innovation of the Year" by UK-based Automotive Testing Technology International magazine, the company also received the top honor for Product Excellence in 2008 by the Japan Society of Mechanical Engineers. Photron's ultima APX camera was used in the 2007 "Shark attack at dawn" high speed sequence for BBC's widely-acclaimed Planet Earth series and in 2006was integrated into Tech Imaging's Emmy award-winning "SwingVision" system for Golf on CBS.

The company's latest camera, the Fastcam MC2 is an innovative and affordable two-head, high speed imager. Designed for flexibility, the new camera can be easily integrated into a production line for automation fault-finding tasks.
