FinishLynx is a powerful fully automatic timing (F.A.T.) system that uses a digital camera to produce photo finish and results for Athletics (Track & Field). This technology was developed in 1992 by MIT graduates, with the idea that everyone should have access to the same technology as that used at the world’s most prestigious events. For more than 30 years, the same Lynx technology that has been used to time International Championship events has also been used for middle-school meets.
