PCO Videos

  1. Video: Photoluminescence In The Time Domain
    5/10/2017

    This video shows the principle of photoluminescence in the time domain (pulsed excitation) and in the frequency domain (continuous, modulated excitation) using the pco.flim – a specialized camera for luminescence lifetime measurements in the frequency domain. The corresponding waveforms of light, shaped and delayed by a reflective target and a photoluminescent sample, are visualized.

  2. Imaging Plasma Channels In Electron Beam Welding
    4/10/2017

    During electron beam welding, the high energy concentration causes the material to melt, which forms plasma. The escaping plasma creates a channel as it “drills” into the depth of the workpiece and forms the welded seam as it cools. The sequence shown in this video has been attained using 9,000 fps with the exposure matched to the actual welding process.

  3. A Spark In The Dark – And How To Snatch It With PCO’s High-Speed Cameras
    1/10/2017

    High-speed camera users demand cameras that work accurately under the harshest environmental conditions, making reliability and operational capability crucial considerations in scientific cameras. This video shows a combustion analysis application, using a pco.dimax high-speed camera, at the Robert Bosch GmbH in Stuttgart. 

  4. Car Safety Testing Using the pco.dimax cs Camera
    5/13/2015

    The pco.dimax cs camera with its true 12-bit performance is ideal for providing crisp, brilliant color images for all car safety testing applications involving onboard, offboard, and sled testing. This high speed video presents car safety testing situations recorded with the pco.dimax cs camera.

  5. Ladybug Takes Off In Slow Motion
    11/21/2014

    This particular sequence was recorded with at pco.dimax HD CMOS camera at 3,000 frames-per-second and 1296 x 720 pixel resolution. Once the ladybug unfolds its wings, the display speed is reduced to 25 fps.

  6. Clear, Colored Images Captured In Low Light
    11/20/2014

    This video was taken out of a lab window at dawn. The sequence displays three times at 16bit and 8bit scaling to capture details. All imagery was captured by the pco.edge – a color, sCMOS (scientific CMOS) camera operating at 2560 x 2160 resolution at 100 frames/s.

  7. Fishing Kingfisher in Slow Motion II
    11/19/2014

    The pco.dimax HD is a high-speed, 12-bit CMOS camera ideal for a variety of slow-motion capture applications. In this video example, Rainer Bergomaz from Blue Paw Artists used one of these cameras with 1920 x 1440 pixel resolution @ 1060 frames/s to capture sequences of young kingfishers trying (successfully, in some instances) to catch fish.

  8. Magic Drops In Slow Motion
    11/13/2014

    Blue Paw Artists’ Rainer Bergomaz and Daniel Nimmervoll used the pco.dimax HD high-speed camera to capture water droplet sequences, showing that slow motion imagery is just as appealing aesthetically as it is scientifically.

  9. Hyperspectral Imaging Solutions for the Defense Market
    4/30/2013

    Steve Daicos, President of PCO-TECH, introduces us to the pco.edge (sCMOS) and and pco.pixelfly (CCD) cameras.

  10. Owls In Slow Motion
    4/2/2013

    Sequences of landing owls filmed by Norbert Porta from Science Docu (www.sciencedocu.de) with a pco.dimax high speed CMOS Camera.
