Paper Abstract

Video motion analysis has entered a new era with the introduction of the Kodak Ektapro EM Motion Analyzer, a high-speed solid-state video recording system. No longer confined to the limitations of film or tape for high-speed image acquisition, the electronic memory solid-state recorder offers new recording schemes never before possible. The Ektapro EM Motion Analyzer can be manually controlled by way of the keypad, or set into a trigger dependent mode to allow the actual application to control the recording. Trigger parameters include switch closure, sound, temperature, change in illumination, or a change in voltage. By writing over old frames with new, it is possible to have the high-speed video system in a continuous record mode and ready to capture an intermittent or uncontrolled event without the constraints of recorders that are dependent on consumable media. This paper will focus on innovative recording techniques (Record, Record-Stop, Record-Trigger, and Record-On-Command) and how the world of high-speed electronic image recording vastly differs from conventional high- speed tape and film methods.
