IDP Express R2000 system

Share this on social media:

Photron, a manufacturer of high-speed cameras and image analysis software, has introduced the IDP Express R2000 system, for high-speed, real-time image processing. The R2000 features an onboard field-programmable gate array (FPGA) to provide experienced developers unique access to the high-speed open-ended architecture.

The system supports one or two of Photron's miniature CMOS high-speed camera heads at full or reduced resolution and speed. It is available in two configurations, without the FPGA and with a Xilinx FPGA. Without the FPGA, the R2000 operates in a typical, high-speed image acquisition capacity, writing image data directly to the host computer's RAM. Operating with the Xilinx FPGA, the R-2000-F enables real-time hardware-based pre-processing while recording the event.

Photron offers a multitude of high-speed imaging solutions with a full range of cameras from miniature to high definition, including a high-speed imager operating at up to 1.4 million frames per second and the Megapixel to 10,000fps Fastcam SA-X. The company's camera control and image acquisition software, Fastcam Viewer (PFV), now supporting both LabView and MatLab, is also available as a free download via the company's website.
