powered, touch screen, ruggedised and more
Manufactured with Vision Research's customary technology and innovation,
the Phantom Miro eX1 camera is supplied with a comprehensive variety
of features making the camera both versatile and easy-to-use.
What are the key
characteristics of the Phantom Miro eX1 camera?
||The built-in, 3-½”
640 x 480 LCD touch screen display allows for easy set-up, perfect
framing of shots, and for receiving immediate feedback
||Play and rewind can be executed in normal or fast mode or the sequence
can be stepped through, one frame at a time.
||Trimming the movie is as easy as setting in-points and out-points
prior to saving.
||Successful motion analysis is enhanced by operating with shutter
speeds 1%, 5%, 10%, 25%, 50%, or 100% of max exposure time (1/Frame
Rate) allowing objects to be frozen in motion
||Nine selectable frame rates, each with up to 6 selectable exposure
settings giving 54 setting combinations, provide the maximum flexibility
to control exposure and motion blur to achieve a high quality image
||Battery powered; making field use easy and practical. Batteries
are easy-to-install and spares can be carried for in-the-field replacement
||The 1GB internal high-performance DRAM memory can be securely off-loaded
to a Type 1 removable CompactFlash™ card. Files can be viewed
and a detailed analysis can be performed using a PC and the advanced
Phantom Software (included).
||Any 1” C-mount lens can be used, or the camera can be attached
to microscope or borescope. An F-mount adapter allows the use of standard
||Mounting plates on two sides of the camera provide plenty of options
whether using a tripod, boom, or custom mount using standard ¼-20
||Custom-designed CMOS active-pixel sensors have an ISO rating of
4800 (monochrome) and 1200 (colour) ensuring the light-sensitivity
required in high-speed imaging applications.
|| Images are taken according to preset options and the camera stores
them in a circular buffer in internal memory. Should a setting be
changed, the change can be viewed immediately on the built-in LCD
or on an external monitor. The camera can also be set so that a trigger
(from external hardware, an on-camera trigger button or software on
a connected PC) starts the recording, stops the recording, or records
a selectable number of frames before and after the trigger.
||Connect to a PC with 10/100 Ethernet for additional camera
programming and control, and to retrieve test images in later analysis
and processing. Connect to a standard analog video monitor (PAL or
NTSC) for real-time monitoring of the camera image or for playback
of images stored in the camera’s memory.
||Using the Phantom software provided, movies can be saved in popular
formats such as QuickTime or AVI, and frames saved as JPEG or TIFF
||Applying the bundled TEMA Starter for Phantom software from Image
Systems AB, allows the user to obtain a quantitative analysis as well
as a qualitative view of test results.
