Shimadzu Corporation's High-Speed Video Camera HyperVision HPV-2 offers world-class ultra-high-speed video recording of up to one million frames per second.
The HPV-2 permits recording of ultra-high-speed phenomena not previously possible in a wide variety of fields that require high-speed image capture, such as materials failure, fluid dynamics, combustion, and sports science.
FEATURES & BENEFITS
1. Ultra-high-speed recording of up to one million frames per second.
This newly developed IS-CCD*1 achieves ultra-fast recording speeds of up to one million fps.
*1 The IS-CCD is Shimadzu's unique CCD with image storage incorporated into the sensor chip to permit high-speed image recording.
* Patent US 6972795, US 7176972, EP/NL/GB/FR 1278246, DE 60104000.7
This product's IS-CCD image sensor was jointly developed in collaboration with Kinki University's Professor Takeharu Etoh.
2. Ultra-high-speed and high spatial resolution
With a conventional high-speed video camera, the spatial resolution drops off as the recording speed is increased. However, the HPV-2 spatial resolution does not deteriorate at high frame rates. It maintains excellent 312 x 260-pixel resolution at all recording speeds to permit detailed analysis of high-speed phenomena.
3. HPV-2 can capture a wide range of high-speed phenomena with the high sensitivity CCD.
A highly sensitive image sensor is essential to capture ultra-high-speed images using extremely short exposure times. The IS-CCD incorporates a high-sensitivity design that expands the light sensitive area per pixel to handle recording of a variety of high-speed phenomena.
4. Easy-to-use, multifunction software
Dedicated software in the control unit allows recording to start immediately after performing a few simple settings. Recorded images can be saved in general image formats such as AVI, BMP, JPEG, TIFF and 16-bit TIFF.
Some images taken with the HPV-2 High-Speed Video Camera are presented below. Some of them can be downloaded as videos in MPEG file format. Features Specifications <b>Ultra-fast, 1,000,000 fps Recording Speed</b> Bullet in flight and explosion of detonator (Recording speed: 1,000,000 fps) Bullet passes as detonator explodes.
Appearance and disappearance of laser cavitation in a microreactor (Recording speed: 1,000,000 fps) Cavitation caused by pulsed laser in 200 μm triangular microreactor.
Jet from chemical printer (Recording speed: 1,000,000 fps) Droplet emitted from 55 μm nozzle
Shock wave propagation (Recording speed: 1,000,000 fps) Shockwave from an explosion reflects off a wall.
Synchronous Recording of High-Speed Flying Object
Synchronous recording of plastic pellet (speed approx. 50 m/s) penetrating a plastic film viewed from different recording directions. Synchronous recording of situation before and after penetration achieves multi-directional phenomena analysis that is unavailable when recording from a single direction. (Recording speed: 125,000 fps)
High-Speed Video Camera HPV-1 Selected for US R&D 100
The R&D 100 awards are held and hosted by the technology information magazine "R&D" in the United States. Every year, 100 products considered technologically important and commercialized around the world in the previous year are selected in this awards competition. In 2006, the Shimadzu high-speed video camera HPV-1 was selected to receive the award.
This product was developed by Shimadzu jointly with Professor Takeharu Eto, Faculty of Science and Engineering, Kinki University. It was rated highly as a revolutionary high-speed video camera capable of taking continuous images at an ultra-high recording speed of one million frames per second without any deterioration in image quality.
* The CHIP-1000 Chemical Printer and High-Performance Liquid Chromatograph Mass Spectrometer LCMS-IT-TOF were selected for the R&D 100 award in 2004 and 2005, respectively, which meant that Shimadzu products received the awards three years on the run.
