Optronis presents Sprinter-FHD, a high speed and high definition camera, belonging to CamRecord Sprinter family by Optronis. This camera is controlled via TimeViewer software, which offers functions for object tracking with the current release in order to be able to analyse image sequences automatically.
Sprinter-FHD has a light-sensitive CMOS sensor and offers full HD resolution at a frame rate of over 1,800 images per second. Various trigger and synchronisation options make this camera a suitable tool for recording fast processes simply and making them accessible for accurate analysis. The image data is buffered in a fast 16 GB memory, before being saved either to an SSD hard disk internal to the camera or on a PC.
An object tracking function is integrated into TimeViewer software supplied with Sprinter-FHD. This allows objects, or points tagged using a marker, to be tracked automatically from image to image. Tracking is at sub-pixel accuracy, enabling precise recording of the path of an object. In addition, changes in angle or velocity vectors can also be recorded. All data are displayed using the software or exported for individualised analysis. Tracking not only simplifies motion analysis in research, but also fault analysis and quality assurance.
