THE FASTEST JUST GOT FASTER.
THREE NEW i-SPEED 7 SERIES CAMERAS.
3.2 Megapixel | 2.45 million fps | 2072 x 1536 | 27+GPixels/s | ISO 125,000
The new i-SPEED 7 Series featuring the AST sensor (Advanced Sensor Technology) boasts an unparalleled combination of features to complement the market-leading performance specifications. These new models
carry the legacy of the original 7 Series, providing researchers and engineers with state-of-the art scientific
tools that help our customers advance their research in a lab or a test range.
The three new models are packed with a long list of advanced features that push the new 7 Series ahead of the
pack. Features include the new AST CMOS sensor, with market-leading performance of 2.45 million fps and
high-resolution. In addition to the new sensor, the i-SPEED 7 Series comes with an electromechanical shutter for
remote session reference and a shutter integration time of 168ns. These features and many more make the new
i-SPEED 7 Series ideal for PIV, DIC, fluid dynamics, ballistics and a wide range of scientific research.
The i-SPEED 7 Series (717, 721, and 727) provides an increased
2072 x 1536 resolution that raises throughput speeds
to 27.1 GPixels/second (27.1 billion pixels processed every
second)—at even higher frame speeds. The balance between
resolution and frame rate produces amazingly clear images at
impressive resolutions that are critical for accurate motion
Synchronized Integrated Lighting Control (SILC*)
The new integrated lighting control allows users to accurately
control external lighting independent of the camera’s exposure duration. Three modes allow the user to set up a single pulse per frame, double pulse per frame, or change pulse duration on alternating frames. This is ideal for LED and PIV laser illumination where the timing of the light in relation to the exposure can be tightly controlled. Delay, duration, and relative position for each pulse can be defined, allowing for superior
lighting control and advanced camera synchronization possibilities. * Patent Pending
iX Cameras engineers combined the i-SPEED 7 Series instrumentation
and rugged models into one innovative camera
housing ideal for both laboratory and challenging field environments.
The sturdy rugged design features a high-G rated
two-piece aluminum enclosure for exceptional protection. The
redesigned all aluminum enclosure also includes a user removable
handle to provide greater flexibility when mounting the
camera to a static frame. Removing the handle exposes fixing
points to facilitate the connection of other components such as
the CDUe or lights, displays, booms, etc.
Swappable SSD technology allows you to transfer high resolution
images between a camera and a computer. The external
solid state drive (xSSD) memory cartridge, available in 250GB,
500GB, 1TB, and 2TB sizes, is ideal for secure non-volatile
storage of large video files without interrupting the video capture

to customize the software to meet your specific applications needs. We will work with you to integrate program commands into your own software to allow you full control of all i-SPEED 7 camera functions and features.
To accommodate our worldwide customer base, the i-SPEED
Software Suite 2.0 will be available in local languages to meet the needs of our global customers.
The latest feature of the i-SPEED Software Suite 2.0, this
functionality allows the user to define trigger levels through a manual mode or choose auto mode and have the software
calibrate trigger levels. A Track mode has also been added for triggering the camera in a dynamically changing environment
such as cloud cover.
Auto Black Reference (each frame)
The i-SPEED 7 is the only ultra-high-speed camera that does
not require the black level to be set for each scene. The camera automatically verifies the black levels for every single frame it records, simplifying your workflow and producing beautifully contrasted shots automatically.
On board Image Processing
Unlike all other ultra-high-speed cameras on the market, the
i-SPEED 7 does not output unprocessed RAW files by default.
All video and images generated by the camera are fully processed by the camera itself; no need to set color and balance
and playable video by default. View the videos right out of the camera, with no post-processing necessary after the video is
uploaded—simply open your images and video in any movie player. Miss your adjustment palette, or are you unsure about
the exposure of a shot? No problem—you can always save into an 8-bit, 12-bit or 16-bit RAW image or format. Save time
downloading the video now by skipping the processing and spend the time later doing your camera adjustments with your
preferred adjustment software.
Data Collection Software
i-SPEED Control Multi-DAQ contains all of the software necessary
to fully integrate your compatible NI DAQ hardware with your i-SPEED 7 capture. Sync and examine multiple channels of data with your video and import them both directly into Pro-Analyst® for synchronized, quantifiable motion and data.* *Premium bundle required.

i-FOCUS assists in setting the focus of the image in bright environments
or on moving objects. A brightly colored overlay
peaks to red when lines on an object are crisp and that object
is in focus. i-FOCUS is also an excellent way for the user to
quickly see the available depth of field in the shot.
Continuing our tradition of developing easy-to-use cameras,
we added an optional electromechanical shutter to the new
i-SPEED 7 Series. This new feature enables remote reference,
automated calibration, and sensor protection during lens
changes. The electromechanical shutter makes the new
i-SPEED 7 Series ideal for field work where the camera is at a
distance from the user and for DIC and PIV applications where
the camera must not be moved after a calibration frame.
