The OMEGA Scan'O'Vision Star cameras take up to 2000 images each second with a high resolution 2048 pixel vertical line, and the corresponding time is displayed with each picture. This groundbreaking resolution gives much more information, providing the photofinish judge a higher zoom and even more detail, resulting in faster decisions in those tightest of finishes.
All Star cameras now feature remote control of the lens iris and focus functions from within the photofinish software.
All models include a built in digital inclinometer. This visual aid ensures the camera is perfectly level, which is a crucial element of ensuring fair and accurate results from a photofinish system.
The OMEGA 20/20 Vision camera includes the SWISS TIMING patented Spatial Alignment System. By switching camera alignment to matrix view, the recording column of pixels can be placed very precisely along the finish line very quickly and easily. This view also permits the operator to demonstrate to a judge that the camera has been correctly set up.
For the cost conscious customer, the Star 220 camera offers great value for money with the same OMEGA Scan'o'Vision Star image quality. OMEGA Star photofinish cameras measure time to one half of a millisecond, beyond requirements for a wide range of sports including; Athletics, Cycling, Horse Racing and Greyhound Racing, Speed Skating, Rowing and Canoeing.
Star cameras are self contained devices, needing only a Gigabit network cable to connect it to the capture PC or laptop up to one hundred metres away, and extendable with standard repeated devices.
With the optional internal battery pack installed, a Star camera can continue to operate for up to one hour after mains power failure. This option is recommended for cameras that will be in use outdoors. An external 12v supply can also allow the camera to be used when mains power is not available.
With a standard Nikon fit lens mount, users globally have a wealth of high quality lenses to choose from. Please note that due to the high resolution of the Star camera, some lenses such as those made for digital SLRs do not permit the capture of the full image. Please contact us for advice.
Star software has been completely rewritten to take advantage of advances in technology.
Designed to accommodate exacting requirements of Olympic and World Championship sport, the Star camera software is feature rich, able to communicate with results systems, many scoreboards and displays, as well as being able to integrate with wind measurement, false start systems and transponder tracking.
Templates for both screen and printing can create customised layouts to include event and sponsor logos and can be made easily by the user with the template editor.
