Designed with versatility and flexibility at the forefront, the Phantom v1610 camera (colour and monochrome versions) is a powerful new addition to the Phantom® v-Series family of digital high-speed cameras
With a aarpoprietary widescreen CMOS sense and boasting the ability to acquire and save up to 16 gigapixels-per-second of data, the Phantom v1610’s resolution of 1280 x 800 can capture 16 000 frames-per-second can be grabbed, while at reduced resolutions, the v1610 offers frame rates of 647,000 fps. Further underscoring its versatility, the camera can be ordered with a unique FAST option (export controlled), which enables frame rates up to 1 000 000 fps.
The custom-designed sensor has 28 micron pixels, ensuring superb light-sensitivity which is an essential in ultra-high-speed imaging. Standard 12-bit depth per pixel yields high dynamic range and provides excellent image quality.
Described by the manufacturer as "their most connected camera, ever", the v1610 has common signal connections conveniently located on its back panel. Connections include timecode, dual power inputs, HD-SDI, a GPS input, frame synchronization, and trigger. The two HD-SDI ports can be configured in several ways. They can act as identical 4:2:2 HD-SDI ports where one port can be set up to provide an (optional) on-screen display for monitoring the on-camera controls and camera operation. They can also be configured as a single 4:4:4 Dual-Link HD-SDI port.
The v1610 can be equipped with 24GB, 48GB or 96GB of high-speed memory. Cine save times can also be maximised with the Phantom CineMag feature that comes standard on the v1610 which allows the saving from high-speed RAM to a Cinemag in seconds. Digital high-speed imaging is memory hungry. The CineMag eliminates camera down time while saving cines away from volatile memory.
The fully-featured Phantom Camera Control (PCC) software is easy to use and with it, one or more cameras can be controlled from a single interface with easy access to even the most complex camera features. PCC also includes a built-in basic motion analysis and measurements package.
