Standard Record Mode: Classic High-Speed Imaging - The TS5H records beautifully sharp 1920 x 1080 video at 634 frames per second, while the TS5Q records amazing 2560 x 1440 video at 359fps, in vivid color or monochrome. Smaller resolutions may be recorded at faster frame rates: 720p @ 1400fps, 800 x 600 @ 1677fps, etc. Binning and sub-sampling features of the sensor give the TS5 great flexibility and sensitivity.


FasFire Mode - Ultra-fast save times to the onboard media while simultaneously recording high-speed bursts of hundreds or even thousands of images at a time, the TS5 is always ready for the next high-speed snapshot!


Long Record Option - Any model TS5 ordered with the "D" (dual mode) option can record continuously at high speed for many minutes, or hours at reduced resolutions.


Portability - With its small form factor, battery operation, large built-in LCD touch screen and intuitive on-screen menu system, the TS5 puts the power of both a traditional high-speed camera and long-record system into the palm of your hand. The TS5 is a true point-and-shoot high-speed camera solution.


Flexible Control – The TS5 can be operated as a self-contained, handheld camera, or controlled over Gigabit Ethernet via Fastec FasMotion software on your PC or Mac or via the built-in web interface with your favorite web browser on your PC, Mac, tablet, or even your smartphone.


High-Performance Image Transfer – The FasMotion application makes workflow a breeze with transfers of uncompressed images via Gigabit Ethernet at rates of 50–80MB/s to moderately equipped PCs.


Multiple Storage Options – The TS5 features both a USB port and an SD port for quick and easy image downloads to USB flash drives, SD cards, or portable hard drives. The built-in SSD provides up to 2TB of lightning-fast non-volatile internal storage.

Outstanding image quality and up to 523 full frames per second at 1696 x 1710 pixel resolution. The HiSpec 4 is GiGE compatible for easy remote camera control and allows users to operate multiple cameras from any standard Notebook / PC over a distance of 100 meters. The HiSpec 4 is a perfect fit for a wide variety of high-speed motion applications with the capacity to capture megapixel images at more than 1,400 fps. At reduced resolutions, images can be captured at up to 298,000 fps. The ImageBLITZ® Auto Trigger makes it easy to catch random events. In the field of view, users specify a "region of interest" and the software takes over. Any change in the pre-set area will stop the recording and save the images in memory. These easy-to-use features make the HiSpec 4 a valuable tool in any lab, production line or manufacturing environment. Hi-"G" and IRIG timing are available as options.
