Wayne, N.J.,- Vision Research, a leading manufacturer of
digital high-speed imaging systems, extends the company's
Phantom® 1 Megapixel (Mpx)-v-Series line of digital high-speed
cameras with the addition of the v411. This addition provides
consumers with even more options to get the performance they
need within budget.
The v411 uses the same technology as other 1Mpx v-Series
cameras, adding a camera with 4Gpx/s throughout to the line.
The v411 has a top speed at full resolution of 4200 fps.
V-Series cameras feature high-definition, widescreen 1280x800
CMOS sensors and have larger 20 micron pixels that allow
shooting in low light, which is often an issue with high speed
The cameras also have a number of unique features, including
Phantom CineMag compatibility for on-camera storage and long
record time applications. They also include Image-Based
Auto-Trigger functionality, Extreme Dynamic Range and an
internal capping shutter for hands-free and remote black
"The Phantom v-Series is suited for a number of applications,
including scientific research, product development, ballistics,
explosive testing and more," says Rick Robinson, Division VP
Marketing, Vision Research.
"The latest Phantom v-Series cameras improve the usability of
the line while maintaining the same speed, sensitivity and
high-performance for which they have always been
Additionally, for the first time ever, Vision Research is

The latest Phantom® v-Series cameras offer additional
connectivity and on-camera controls that improve signaling and
provide users with more options for enhancing their research
and testing industrial applications.
Additionally, the v-Series cameras feature a new white body,
which is ideal for shooting outside, particularly in deserts or
test ranges, as it reflects the sun and keeps the camera
