EtherLynx PRO Photo-Finish Camera

The standard EtherLynx PRO camera captures full-color photo finish images at 3,000 frames per second. The 5k and 10k upgrades increase the maximum frame rate to 5,000 and 10,000 fps, respectively. This high frame rate capability allows users to configure the ideal camera settings for the speed and conditions of any event. There is no other sports photo-finish camera in the world that can capture 10,000 fps. Simply put, The EtherLynx Pro will produce time-stamped photo finish images that are among the most accurate and beautiful in the world. That's why FinishLynx technology is trusted by cycling events like the Tour de France and motorsports like NASCAR and Formula One.

With the 10k upgrade, the EtherLynx PRO digital photo finish camera can capture images up to 10,000 times a second. This brings a previously unknown level of accuracy to photo finish and fully automatic timing. Recent applications of this field-proven technology include Cycling and a variety of Motorsports such as Automobile, Power Boat, and Motorcycle racing. The PRO camera is perfectly suited for use as a standalone system for results production, or as a component of a transponder-based system.

When used with transponders, the EtherLynx PRO captures precision, high-definition images that are not only reviewable, but provide time-stamped proof of finish order and lap times—accurate to 0.0003 sec in the base model, and to 0.0001 sec with the 10k upgrade. The FinishLynx images are especially valuable because they provide indisputable photo finish evidence in the instance of transponder failure or loss.

The EtherLynx PRO camera accommodates both Nikon-compatible or c-mount lenses, transmits high resolution images with no loss of quality, and by using the world-leading features of the FinishLynx timing and results software and plugins a user will have access to advanced features like  digital zoom, automatic alignment, virtual photo eye, and LapTime.  With optional hardware additions, like a through-the-lens viewer for rapid alignment, or the wifi upgrade, the EtherLynx PRO really is the ultimate photo finish camera, and the choice of users around the world when only the best will do.

The Lap Time Plugin for FinishLynx is especially powerful in Motor Sports because it allows transponder and photo eye integration and can immediately update standings and split times on any scoreboards or information systems integrated with the software. See below for more information on the EtherLynx PRO camera configurations.
