April 24, 2020 – Fastec Imaging announced the release of the HS7 Full HD High-Speed Camera System. Designed primarily for laboratory and industrial use, the HS7 system combines a camera with a dedicated controller. Capable of recording FHD (1080p) at 2500 frames per second, the HS7 is the first of Fastec Imaging’s HS Series cameras to be released. The HS Series includes cameras with resolutions ranging from HD (720p) to UHD (2160p) and imaging rates exceeding 5 gigapixels/second.
High-speed cameras such as the HS7 are capable of producing slow-motion video often associated with entertainment or marketing but are often used for technical applications such as machine design and troubleshooting, analysis of droplets in microfluidic devices, the study of animal motion for neurological or robotics research, and Digital Image Correlation (DIC) for materials research and component testing.
The HS Series is compatible with a range of lenses and optical systems as well as industry standard displays, storage devices and other peripherals. Configurable I/O ports provide connectivity with other cameras, lights, triggers, and laboratory instruments for synchronization and data acquisition. The HS7’s support of unique user logins and configurations combined with image archival to portable storage make it a shared resource in academic/research settings where multiple camera applications are supported.
The HS7 may be operated directly via the dedicated controller or from any network-connected computer running Windows, macOS, or Linux. Smartphone or tablet control is provided via a web browser and an integrated TeamViewer client is available to provide remote support and control.
