PhotoVision is now the industry leader when it comes to price/performance/benefits! You can use our Single, Dual or Trio camera solution to capture photos from multiple points. All of the cameras run at full frame-rate and capture high resolution full color pictures. When it comes to scoring a race, we've made that easy as well. You can have 1, 2 or 3 cameras capturing, and 1, 2 or 3 laptop computers scoring a race. Imagine dividing up the heats as they start rapidly and using 2 or 3 laptops to quickly score the heats at a big race. We've made it so easy to handle large meets, while also providing benefits for other types of timing. Perhaps you want to analyze a baseball pitcher's delivery to the plate. We make that easy with our add-on Baseball Analyzer. How about football combines where you want to measure the athlete's time to 1,000th of a second, while also studying their running gate? Need to help your golf team improve those fairway shots? Our dual camera solution is ideal for this purpose.
