HOW DOES THE EDGERTRONIC WORK? 

Engineered with a specialized CMOS image sensor, ultra high-speed electronics, memory, and image processing electronics in a compact form factor.

The camera runs a web server and connects to a computer/laptop or to a LAN over Ethernet. The user directs the Chrome web browser to the camera’s IP address and controls the camera via a user interface (UI) appearing on the web browser. The camera’s UI allows the user to set exposure, frame rate, preview composition, adjust focus, and finally trigger the camera to take a high-speed video.

While running, the edgertronic is constantly capturing frames of high-speed video into an internal buffer. Depending on frame size and frame rate, this buffer contains, at a minimum, the last 8 seconds of video. When a trigger occurs, video before and/or after the trigger is captured and compressed into H.264 video and saved to a removable SD card.

Continuous capture into a this large buffer allows the user to trigger the edgertronic even after an event has occurred. Unpredictable events, like a lightning bolt, are captured with ease.

Once the video is saved, it can be downloaded to the computer, or replayed in the web browser. Alternately, you can remove the SD card and download the videos to their computer or laptop.

USER INTERFACE

High-speed videography has unique challenges in how frame rate, shutter speed, aperture, and resolution settings interact. We completely rethought the control interface to reduce complexity while allowing full creative override. You can specify as many or as few of the settings as you want, and the camera will fill in the remaining ones. This allows you to optimally concentrate on your creative process.
