  1. Flying Macaw In Slow Motion
    4/2/2013

    Slow motion sequences of macaws in Guyana, filmed by Rainer Bergomaz from Blue Paw Artists.

  2. CCD, CMOS, And sCMOS Cameras For Imaging Applications
    2/6/2013

    Murad Karmali, VP of sales for PCO-TECH, introduces us to several cameras from his company’s product line at Photonics West 2013. This includes the pco.edge, an sCMOS camera that features simultaneous high light sensitivity, high frame rate, high resolution, and high dynamic range.

  3. Ballistic Flight
    6/27/2012

    The Full HD pco.dimax high speed camera captures a Great Tit's (parus majur) approach and landing to a birdhouse, the bird's departure, and then its sudden return. During this return the flight looks a bit like a ballistic "flying" with wings folded.

  4. Live From Photonics West 2012: Scientific CMOS Camera Introduction
    2/15/2012

    Murad Karmali of PCO-TECH Inc. (formerly The COOKE Corporation) discusses the features of several cameras, including the pco.edge scientific CMOS camera. Used in super resolution microscopy, single molecule imaging, calcium imaging, and other applications, the pco.edge simultaneously offers extremely low noise, fast frame rates, wide dynamic range, high quantum efficiency, high resolution, and large field of view.

  5. STS-135 Last Space Shuttle Start in Slow Motion
    8/15/2011
    The last space shuttle start July 2011 was recorded with 2x pco.dimax highspeed cameras at 200 frames/s at full resolution (2016 x 2016 pixel) by NASA.
  6. Video: Fast Manufacturing
    1/19/2011
    PCO does not only manufacture high speed cameras, but needs these cameras to have a proper look to the manufacturing process. The CNC - milling machine in this sequence had a revolution speed of 12000 revolutions per minute and an advancing speed of 1.4 mm / revolution.
  7. Video: Light Dump
    1/19/2011
    A burning light bulb hits the ground and breaks. At 5000 fps it takes some time in replay until the light dies.
  8. Video: It Breaks Not…
    1/19/2011
    A vase filled with water is falling down. It can be observed with 5500 frames per second. As this time the vase does not break, the oscillation of the glass by the impact can be also seen as oscillation in the water jet, which leaves the vase.
  9. Video: It Breaks…
    1/19/2011
    A vase filled with water is falling down. It can be observed with 5500 frames per second. Still the crack development is too fast.
  10. Video: ...Falling Edison
    1/19/2011
    A light bulb (switched on) hits the ground and breaks. At 5000 fps it takes some time in replay until the light dies.
