What does High Speed really mean for Machine Vision vs. High Speed Video?

Machine Vision vs. High Speed Video

When you read that a camera is high speed do you every question why?   What qualifies a camera to be high speed?   This is a fair question since so many cameras with a vast difference in performance all are described as “high speed”.  

Creating Color with a Bayer CFA (Color Filter Array)

Vieworks Industrial Vision Color Cameras (i.e. VA-29MG2-C2 ) have image sensors with photosensititve sites called pixels.   The pixels are exposed to light where light is converted into an electrical signal.  The electrical signal is digitized and stored as an image captured.   Silicon is responsive to light from the near UV  (below 400 nm) to the near IR, or upto 1100 nm. 

How to use an Industrial Vision Camera for Dynamic PIV Applications

Dynamic Particle Imaging Velocimetry (DPIV) for flows visualization using an Industrial Vision Camera such as the Vieworks VC-4MC-M180 can be used to obtain the time dependent velocity distributions in a Field-Of-View (FOV) of single and multi-phase flows which are very fast, turbulent and complex.   DPIV is very useful for analysis of turbulent flow, transient flow, micro flow and 3D volumetric flow studies.  The fast frame rate (180 FPS) of the VC-4MC-M180 allows visualization of l
