High-Speed Cameras

PTC supplies high-speed cameras from iX Cameras, formerly a division of Olympus. The high-speed video business was spun off in 2014. iX Cameras was founded by a team of engineers that had worked at Olympus KeyMed for over 15 years, developing state-of the-art high-speed cameras under the brand name of i-SPEED. The i-SPEED cameras have won numerous design and innovation awards, including the coveted Queen's Award for technical achievement.

It's a level of performance that captures more than movement. It captures the imagination. From the innovators of Olympus high-speed camera technology comes our bullet-stopping i-SPEED 7 Series, groundbreaking in its recording capacity 400 times faster than standard 1080p HD rates. Discover a powerful, high-end line of cameras packed with value and suited for a wide range of applications. There's only one way to capture the fastest events in the world. That's with the highest resolution, fastest camera ever built.

The i-SPEED 5 Series includes three new mid-range cameras from iX Cameras. Designed with value in mind, these cameras strike the perfect balance between speed, size, and memory. The proprietary sensor in the i-SPEED 5 Series cameras takes advantage of our next generation silicon technology, based on our acclaimed i-SPEED 7 series sensor. The 5 Series has plenty of power for laboratories, research and test range applications. We have packed up to 144GB of memory into a compact package so you can record for long duration and still fit the camera into tight areas and lab spaces. The 5 Series also incorporates a truly innovative internal cooling system, making these cameras environmentally sealed units and the first cameras in this class designed for use in highly demanding environments.
