23 July 1982 High-Speed Television Camera And Video Tape Recording System For Motion Analysis
Author Affiliations +
A new high-speed motion analysis system provides 2000 frames/second recording and instant replay. Subframe pictures can be taken at 12,000 pictures per second. The recording medium is magnetic tape packaged in a cassette which stores 45 seconds at the highest speed. The key technical advance which made the system possible include a new solid-state 192 x 240 image sensor array which can be read at 108 pixels/second. Recording at practical tape speeds was achieved through the development of high density magnetic heads and tape specifically for this system. In addition to high speed operation, the system was designed to ease the entire range of image analysis tasks. Analog data channels may be recorded and reproduced synchronously with the image sequence. The instrument permits full remote control by a host computer, and random read/write access to the internal digital frame store for image enhancement and pattern recognition applications.
