Photron’s Fastcam Viewer software updated for camera control and slow motion video replay
San Diego, CA-based Photron, Inc., a global high speed imaging systems and image analysis software manufacturer, reports that it has updated the Photron Fastcam Viewer (PFV) software, offering new functionality in high-speed camera control and slow-motion video replay.
The company describes the software as having a “new, intuitive user interface with easy access to creating and replaying image sequences from industry-standard file formats.”
Those formats include AVI (Windows video), MOV (Apple QuickTime video), TIFF ( 8-bit or 26-bit file formats), JPEG, BMP (Bitmap), PNG (Portable Network Graphics), RAW and RAWW (native camera file formats), Photron notes.
Videos saved using Photron’s PFV software will automatically replay at the user-selected replay speed from 1 to 1,000 frames per second, according to Photron, and when the video is opened with Windows Media Player or Apple QuickTime, it auto-plays at the desired slow motion rate.
