FlightScope taps Vision Research to bring slow-motion video capture to its award winning 3D phased array tracking radar system for golf

ORLANDO, Fla. - October 10, 2014 - FlightScope®, manufacturer of the world's first 3D tracking radar for golf, proudly announces that it has partnered with Vision Research, the leading manufacturer of digital high-speed imaging systems. This collaborative partnership will help further revolutionize FlightScope's state-of-the-art monitors by integrating Vision Research Phantom® Miro® high-speed cameras to provide slow-motion video analysis of high-speed action.

"FlightScope has seen tremendous success in the market and has been well received by professionals, instructors and amateurs alike," said Rick Robinson, Director of Marketing for Vision Research. "It's a valuable instructional tool that can accelerate training and give golfers a competitive edge. We're excited about the opportunity to partner with FlightScope and bring our industry-leading high-speed imaging technologies to their award-winning solution."

"Incorporating slow-motion video recording was a natural progression for FlightScope," said Henri Johnson, CEO and founder of FlightScope. "There are many solutions on the market when it comes to high-speed imaging; however, none matched the quality, performance and reputation of Vision Research. Beyond their technologies, there are many synergies that exist between both companies, and we're proud to have the opportunity to work with them on this project."

Providing the optimal feature set for the project, Vision Research's compact Phantom Miro digital high-speed camera offers critical specifications such as high-definition resolution, short exposure for detailed images with no blur and exceptional light sensitivity, as well as untethered operation thanks to its compatibility with widely available rechargeable batteries. In addition, it's compact, lightweight and rugged design makes it ideal to be integrated with the portable FlightScope system.

Once integrated, the Phantom Miro will further enhance the effectiveness of FlightScope as a training tool as it will provide users with detailed, high-definition slow-motion video of the golf swing along with scientific analysis of the action. FlightScope and Vision Research have also engineered an advanced triggering and recording system so that the Phantom Miro will know exactly when to record, and more importantly, where to automatically clip the footage so that there is no searching for the precise moment to be analyzed. This drastically improves workflow and maximizes the time spent between the instructor and student on the range.
