Ultrahigh-Speed Camera


Phantom v1840—the latest addition to the Phantom ultrahigh-speed camera family, provides the same very high image quality at 18Gpix/sec as the Phantom v2640, which was released earlier in the year.


Together with the v2640, the v1840 camera offers the lowest noise floor of any Phantom camera and has a high 64dB dynamic range to provide unprecedented image quality at full 4megapixel 2,048 x 1,952 resolution.


The Phantom v1840 utilizes a custom CMOS 4-megapixel sensor to capture 12-bit images at a speed of 4,510 frames per second (fps) at full resolution and 8,570 fps at 1920 x 1080.


To provide users in research applications with the ultimate flexibility, the v1840 comes equipped with five operating modes. These include standard mode; high-speed (HS) mode, with 34-percent more throughput; binning in both standard and HS mode for higher sensitivity and frame rates; and now Bright Field (BF) mode for exceptionally bright, or shot-noise limited, backgrounds.


In Bright Field mode, the Full Well is significantly larger, increasing the maximum attainable Signal-to-Noise Ratio (SNR). A higher SNR produces a much cleaner image, especially in bright background applications, such as daylight sky or LED back-lit applications.


The Phantom v1840 integrates 72, 144 or 288 GB of memory that can be further segmented into 63 partitions for multiple, shorter cines. The camera also is compatible with Phantom CineMag IV 1 or 2 TB nonvolatile memory, which can save 288 GB of data in under five minutes.
