In a variety of scientific applications, phenomena elapse in an instant, leaving no clue to their solution. Ultra high-speed video cameras record such moments, enabling visualization through slow-motion replay. Shimadzu Hyper Vision technology is used as an important analysis tool in a variety of fields including materials failure, electric discharge, explosions, and microscopic phenomena. In recent years, such observations have progressed to ever higher speeds and increasing detail, leading to calls for ultra-high-speed recording far in excess of conventional recording speeds.
