Hyper Vision HPV-X2 High-Speed Video Camera

Our eyes are incapable of capturing phenomena occurring at times shorter than 50 to 100 ms. As a result, high-speed video cameras have become necessary in order to record phenomena occurring at intervals that cannot be seen with the human eye, and then replay them at a slower rate so that they can be visualized. Shimadzu’s HPV-X2 high-speed video camera, with its combination of superior sensitivity and speed, is the ideal platform for observing hard-to-see phenomena such as the process of manufacturing nanomaterials, the automotive fuel injection process, and the printer ink ejection process.

Ultra-High-Speed Recording

The HPV-X 2 incorporates the next-generation FTCMOS2 burst image sensor, in which the pixels and memory are spatially separated to achieve high image quality with no signal leaks. This avoids problems with conventional CCD technology, such as poor image quality, and leads to:

  • Ultra-high-speed recording at 10 million frames per second
  • High-resolution recording at ultra-high speed

HPV-X2 Sensor


Larger, Clearer Photosensitivity

Adoption of the FTCMOS2 image sensor results in a dramatic increase in signal-to-noise ratio, yielding clearer images compared to conventional products (if the optical systems are the same).


High-speed, Multi-camera Synchronized Recording

Analyze a phenomenon in more detail with synchronized recording using two cameras at a frame rate of 10 million frames/second. The HPV-X2 can also be used in combination with commercially available software for 3D image and numerical analysis, such as obtaining strain distributions during material tests.


Windows-compatible Control Software

Control the camera operation, monitor recording conditions and compare recorded data with Windows-compatible software. Recorded images can be saved in common formats such as AVI, BMP, JPEG, and TIFF.
