  1. Vision Research High-Speed Digital Cameras Instrumental In Teaching Construction Site Safety
    2/9/2015

    There is a good reason construction workers are asked to wear hard hats, gloves, safety goggles, and various other safety equipment while on the job; construction sites are dangerous. Filled with heavy and sharp objects, platforms of varying heights, flying sparks and debris, and a number of other potentially dangerous elements, it’s no wonder so many injuries occur on construction sites.

  2. High Speed Digital Cameras Capture Flight of the Hawk Moth
    5/22/2012

    Hawk Moths can fly at speeds of up to 30 mph and can flap their wings at 20 mph, even when hovering. Their size and speed results in them often being mistaken for a hummingbird. When the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill’s Department of Biology set out to study the wing flapping patterns of the Hawk Moth, a wide selection of high speed digital cameras were tested to determine which would work best. Three Vision Research Phantom digital high speed cameras were selected for this project.

  3. Testing 17th Century Grenades With Digital High Speed Cameras

    The 10 Gb option allows for increased playback and save speeds in the CineMag high speed imaging memory solution for use in conjunction with Vision Research’s Phantom high speed video cameras.

  5. Vision Research High-Speed Digital Cameras Enable Advanced Research In The Behavior Of Fluids At Microscale Level
    5/26/2011

    Introduced in the 1980s, microfluidics is an offshoot of the more commonly known lab-on-a-chip technology. It is applied in the fields of chemistry, physics, biotechnology, and engineering in which small volume of fluids are analyzed. By Vision Research, Inc.

  6. Case Study: Dolby Laboratories Utilizes Vision Research’s Phantom® HD Gold For Music Video
    12/16/2010
    While it is best known for high-quality audio and surround sound technology, Dolby recognizes the importance of high-quality video as an important element to the overall entertainment experience. By Vision Research, Inc.
  7. Case Study: Vision Research High Speed Camera Helps Engineers Develop Cutting-Edge New Materials For Higher Performance Carpet Tufting
    9/16/2010
    Tufting is a highly-reliable manufacturing process which utilizes specially treated yarn and large, multi-needle sewing machines to create a carpet surface. Threaded with yarn, each needle punctures a woven fabric backing where a hook holds the yarn in place forming a tuft, or loop, as the needle is removed. By Vision Research, Inc.

  9. Case Study: High-Speed Digital Video: A Useful Test And Measurement Tool For Stores Separation Testing
    9/1/2010
    Vision Research’s high-speed cameras were utilized as a test and measurement tool in stores separation testing. The Phantom® Miro™ Airborne provided engineers with an in-depth visual analysis of stores separation, helping to more accurately identify safety issues that could put the aircraft and pilot at risk.

  10. Case Study: Vision Research's Phantom Cameras Take The Fight Against Malaria Directly To The Mosquito
    8/31/2010
    By Vision Research, Inc. Vision Research's Phantom v12.1 digital high-speed camera was a crucial component in the development of technology to help fight and eradicate malaria, an epidemic that claims over 1 million people each year. Intellectual Ventures, a global leader in the business of inventions, leveraged the performance of the Phantom v12.1 to analyze the extremely fast movements of a mosquito during flight. With the ability to record at almost 7,000 frames-per-second in 720p high-definition, the camera's capabilities enabled the team to capture never-before-seen visuals and data that proved invaluable in the development of the photonic fence, a solution that leverages an advanced tracking system and laser in killing mosquitoes.
