Based on a camera architecture first introduced with the Phantom® v12.1, the v640 provides a 4 megapixel sensor and greater than 6 gigapixel/second throughput. That means full-resolution frame rates of over 1500 frames-persecond (fps), and 1920 x 1080 HD-resolution frame rates of over 2700 fps.
The v640’s high-resolution timing system yields a timing resolution of better than 20 nanoseconds. Frame rate, frame synchronization and exposure accuracy are all improved over previous generations of high-speed cameras. And, an external frame synchronization signal is available via a dedicated BNC for easier cabling and increased signal integrity. A GenLock input is available for synchronizing the playback of recorded cines to other video gear.
Record directly to our Phantom CineMag nonvolatile, hot-swappable memory magazines. They mount on the CineMag compatible version of the camera. Continuously record full resolution cines into non-volatile memory at up to 175 fps (350 fps at 1920 x 1080 HD). That’s up to 285 seconds into the 256GB CineMag or 570 seconds into the 512GB CineMag.
