PCO Videos

  1. 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.

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

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

  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. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

  10. Video: Missile Test Fire
    1/6/2011

    US Army Javelin Missile 2-stage shoulder fired anti-armor system, test firing, captured with the Model pco.dimax high speed CMOS camera. Recorded at 1100 fps and a resolution of 2016 X 2016 pixels.
