Imaging system manufacturer donates Fastcam SA5 to MIT engineering centre
Photron is donating a high speed video system to the Edgerton Centre at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT – Cambridge, MA) for long-term use by MIT students and researchers. The Edgerton Centre was named after MIT’s Professor Harold Edgerton, known for his innovations in high speed imaging and support for hands-on learning. The Centre is committed to carrying on his legacy of involving MIT students in challenging activities and projects, particularly high speed imaging in engineering and science.

Professor Kim Vandiver, Director, Edgerton Centre, notes, “We are excited to have the use of the new Fastcam SA5 high speed imager at our Centre. The system’s advanced, slow motion capabilities will enable new research and enhance our educational offerings. We are grateful to our colleagues at Photron and delighted to be the recipient of this long-term gift. We look forward to working with MIT’s researchers and students on their high speed imaging projects.”

Photron’s Fastcam SA5 camera is a breakthrough, high speed imaging system that provides up to 7,500 frames per second (fps) at mega pixel resolution (1,024 x 1,000); it is capable of delivering over 1 million fps at reduced resolution. The standalone, one-piece imaging system has a 12-bit monochrome, 36-bit RGB colour sensor which features 20 micron square pixels, for superior dynamic range and highest colour fidelity. The camera system will be used to help the Edgerton Centre provide hands-on, high speed imaging educational experiences for MIT students, and enhanced imaging capabilities for MIT researchers.
