PHOTO FINISH & TIMING
What if athletes reach the finish line almost at the same time? What if you can’t see with the naked eye who the winner is? Identifying the winner is no longer a problem with photo finish.
The idea of photo finish is, as the name indicates, to take pictures of the finish line when an athlete arrives. Contrary to ordinary ‘still’ pictures taken with your camera, a photo finish system only records the finish line.
The Argus photo finish system of TimeTronics has a range of up to 5.000 lines per second. Or in other words: photos per second. These photos are sent to an additional computer. All the photos in a row will get you the finish photo.
On this photo finish picture, you can also read the time started at the beginning of the race. The operator can read the times with an accuracy of up to 0.5 thousandths of a second. This way, you can not only identify the winner of the race, you can also accurately determine the arrival time of all the participants.
With TimeTronics, our primary concern is the user-friendliness of our products, in any sport. For every sport, we offer tailor-made configurations, complete systems which have already proven their functionality in that sport.
Easy configurations: with a considerably simple configuration consisting of an Argus Interface Box, a camera with lens, camera cable and some extra accessories like tripod camera head and cabling, a perfect system can be set up.
Flexibility: depending upon the situational circumstances and specific sport-related characteristics, a tailor-made configuration can be set up.
Open platforms: each system can communicate with peripheral equipment such as WindSpeed wind-gauge, False Start system, Athletics Manager software programs, Stadium Scoreboards, user software, etc.
