Introducing the New Miro R-Series
Vision Research is expanding our popular line of Phantom Miro cameras to include a third body style. We already have the M-Series for laboratory environments and tethered applications and the LC-Series for mobile applications where on-camera viewing and control is needed. Now, there is a third member of the family targeted at applications in harsh environments where the camera must survive high shock and vibration as well as extended operating temperatures. Dubbed the R-Series, there are the same four performance levels available in the other Miro body styles—110, 310, 120 and 320S.
- >100G shock. Tested with a sawtooth wave, 11ms, 30 times, 3 axes (without lens or internal capping shutter)
- 25Grms random vibration; 20Hz to 2KHz, all axes, 10 min/axis, in accordance with MIL-STD-810G
- -20C to +50C operating temperature
- 0 – 50,000ft (15,240 meters) operational altitude
As with the other Miro models, the R-Series has an external rechargeable battery (BP-U30 only) and the popular CineFlash non-volatile data storage system included. All environmental specs were tested with the battery and CineFlash in place. An internal capping shutter is available as an option, but its installation does reduce shock and vibration tolerance.

Phantom Camera Control (PCC) Software Supports NI DAQ Modules
The newest version of PCC has a lot of new features, but one that we are very excited by, is native support for National Instruments™ X- and M-Series Data Acquisition (DAQ) modules. Once the NI software drivers are installed on a computer running PCC, it will recognize any compatible DAQ module attached via USB.
This allows you to obtain data from a wide range of sensors during an experiment, and then visualize those data synchronized with slow-motion video captured using almost any Phantom camera.

Phantom v411 Joins Our 1 Megapixel Camera Line
The Phantom v411 is the newest member of our award-winning 1 Mpx v-Series camera line. The addition of the v411 means there are now 1 Mpx cameras at key price/performance points between the v211 with 2 Gigapixels/second (Gpx/s) throughput and the v1610 with 16 Gpx/s. The v411 has a throughput of over 4 Gpx/s, meaning it can shoot over 4000 fps at full resolution. All v-Series cameras share a common set of unique features that set them apart from the competition:
The Phantom v1610 Provides a Widescreen CMOS Sensor & Delivers a Speed of 16,000 fps at Full Resolution
The Phantom v1610 camera is a powerful new addition to the Phantom v-Series family of digital high-speed cameras. Designed with versatility and flexibility at the forefront, it is an excellent tool for researchers, scientists and engineers who need to capture high-resolution images at ultra-high speeds. With our proprietary widescreen CMOS sensor, the v1610 can acquire and save up to 16 gigapixels-per-second of data.
