VeriLynx Video Camera

Field Event Video Verification Under World Athletics Technical Rule 30.1.1, horizontal jump take-off failures are re-defined to include any breaking of the vertical plane of the take-off line. Rule 29.5 strongly encourages judges to use video or other technology to assist the decision process. VeriLynx cameras, along with special configuration of the FinishLynx software, can be used for this purpose. The VeriLynx camera is an Ethernet-based digital video camera that captures full-frame video for field event verification.

FinishLynx software version 12.00 and later includes the VeriLynx profile. This profile is customized to support the use of VeriLynx cameras for video review of field events, such as the verification of take-off fouls in the Long or Triple Jump events. Align the VeriLynx camera with the take-off board, load the field event start list, capture, verify, and timestamp every attempt. VeriLynx will save all images to disk in real-time (no image loss) and allow you to quickly review every attempt for every athlete, providing proof in case of a foul.

VeriLynx also has the option of exporting a JPEG of each attempt automatically when marking a frame, and keeping multiple VeriLynx image panes synchronized (time tracking) to view multiple angles.

VeriLynx Features

  • Remotely adjust the camera’s Zoom and Focus within the FinishLynx software to optimize image quality

  • FinishLynx enables the standard EtherLynx camera features to be used with VeriLynx cameras, including zoom, automatic scrolling, gamma, brightness, and contrast adjustment.
  • VeriLynx video images are stored on the computer as individual images and can be printed directly from the FinishLynx software
  • VeriLynx videos can be manually cropped, viewed in forward or reverse, viewed at different speeds, exported to AVI format, and uploaded to the internet if desired.

  • Pre-configured profile available with standard FinishLynx installation giving a customized user interface for field events
  • Ability to load field events from the field event schedule file (fldlynx.sch)
