2010 NAB Show

SAN DIEGO--()--Photron, Inc., a global leader and Emmy-award-winning high speed imaging systems manufacturer, will demonstrate the new Fastcam BC2, a high quality, high def, high speed video camera designed specifically for the broadcast market. Applications include television broadcast, commercials, sports OB, and big-screen motion picture production.

Affordably priced, the innovative Fastcam BC2 is designed by the same team that developed the Emmy-award-winning APX high speed camera. With excellent 12-bit dynamic range and 4 mega pixel (2,000 x 2,000 to 1,000 fps) resolution, the new CMOS sensor provides full 1080 high definition resolution at 1920 x 1080 up to 2,000 fps and reduced resolution to over 86,000 fps.

The new BC2 is compatible with the Sony HDVF-C30WR HD viewfinder, and PL, B4 and Nikon F-mount lenses, making it easy to interface with new and/or existing broadcast equipment. The camera features instant playback via the dual HD-SDI outputs on the camera’s rear panel. Additional benefits for broadcast applications include a 2.76 microsecond shutter and very low noise, artifact-free electronically cooled CMOS imaging sensor.

Complete camera control is achieved through either the rear panel, a remote control keypad connected via the RS-422 port, or through the RJ45 Gigabit Ethernet utilizing the company’s free Photron FASTCAM Viewer (PFV) software.

Videos recorded using Photron’s PFV software will automatically replay at the user-selected replay speed via the HD-SDI outputs or can be downloaded via the Gig-E for later viewing. To view live demos of these and other high speed video imaging systems, please visit Photron’s NAB booth # SL1514.
