The v640 provides a 4 megapixel sensor and greater than 6 gigapixel/second throughput. That means full-resolution frame rates of over 1500 frames-per-second (fps), and 1920 x 1080 HD-resolution frame rates of over 2700 fps.
The v640’s high-resolution timing system yields a timing resolution of better than 20 nanoseconds. Frame rate, frame synchronization and exposure accuracy are all improved over previous generations of high-speed cameras. And, an external frame synchronization signal is available via a dedicated BNC for easier cabling and increased signal integrity. A GenLock input is available for synchronizing the playback of recorded cines to other video gear.
You are able to record directly to our Phantom CineMag non-volatile, hot-swappable memory magazines. They mount on the CineMag compatible version of the camera. Continuously record full-resolution cines into non-volatile memory at up to 240 fps (445 for 1920x1080). That's about 3.5 minutes of continuous recording into the 256 GB CineMag or 7 minutes into the 512 GB CineMag.
User-convenience options include an internal mechanical shutter for automatic or remote black references, a Canon EOS lens mount for remote control over lens aperture and focus, and a Remote Control Unit for full camera control without a connected PC or laptop.
The Phantom v640 has emerged as the sports broadcast industries de-facto camera-of-choice for ultra-high-speed playback and is available in broadcast-ready packages from a variety of service providers around the world.
