APAS SYSTEM WITH 2 HIGH SPEED
|It is amazing how technology has progressed.
The JVC company just introduced a new camcorder high speed camera at 240 Hz for a
very low price. This camera is available now only in Japan. However, Ariel Dynamics
acquired license to sell it in the United States as part of the APAS biomechanical system.
The 240 Hz camera is independent of the computer and stores the images on a digital tape in the camcorder. Alternatively, images can be fed directly through I-link (IEEE 1394) to the RS-232 computer interface or the data can be fed later through the I-link cable and software.
Since the file format is AVI standard, the APAS is perfectly suited since it utilizes AVI files as the digitizing format of choice. Only the APAS system with its special software can utilize this technology to it's fullest potential by separating the multiple fields into a biomechanical compatible sequence. This is the only system in the World that can do just that !!!
The following photographs are taken from the JVC brochure and still available only in Japanese.
Since the camera price is around $2000, the full APAS system with all the connections and interface to this marvelous technology, including the two cameras, will be priced about $25,000.
Other systems with 240 Hz cameras and full 3D analysis systems with analog input would cost more than $150,000. Ten times as much which you pay some middle person !!!
