Vision Research introduces the Phantom v1840, the latest addition to the Phantom ultrahigh-speed camera family. The v1840 provides the same image quality at 18 Gpixels/s as the Phantom v2640. Reportedly, the v1840 offers the lowest noise floor of any Phantom camera and has a high 64-dB dynamic range and 4-Mpixel 2,048 x 1,952 resolution.
The camera relies a custom CMOS 4-megapixel sensor to capture 12-bit images at a speed of 4,510 fps at full resolution and 8,570 fps at 1920 x 1080. It comes equipped with five operating modes. These include standard mode; high-speed (HS) mode, with 34-percent more throughput; binning in both standard and HS mode for higher sensitivity and frame rates; and now Bright Field (BF) mode for bright or shot-noise limited, backgrounds. In Bright Field mode, the Full Well is significantly larger, increasing the maximum attainable signal-to-noise ratio (SNR).
The Phantom v1840 integrates 72, 144 or 288 GB of memory that can be further segmented into 63 partitions for multiple, shorter cines. The camera also is compatible with Phantom CineMag IV 1 or 2 TB nonvolatile memory, which can save 288 GB of data in under five minutes.
