In addition, cooperation with the waveform input device in option is also available. PFV software had gained many fans over the years for its robustness, reliability and ease of operation. With the release of several new cameras, specifically the super-fast FASTCAM SA-Z, FASTCAM SA-X2 and multi-head FASTCAM Multi.

Photron's PFV Version 3 and higher include binning options (to increase light gathering sensitivity), video trigger (to detect motion within the image displayed), bit shift (to select which 8 of the 12-bits are displayed for increased light sensitivity), enhanced navigation mode (divides the display area into nine squares, each controlling a different and selectable camera function), and MATLAB drivers for easy camera integration into your existing workflow.
