This four-day program is designed for scientists, engineers, and photographers who need to gather data on rapidly moving subjects and events for study, motion analysis, and trouble-shooting. Mornings are spent in the lecture hall learning the fundamentals for lighting, imaging technologies, and motion analysis. Afternoons are spent making high-speed images in the laboratory. In addition to carrying out the standard techniques, attendees will try out the latest in high-speed-imaging equipment, with the manufacturer's representatives there to provide hands-on education and experience with the systems.

With support from the leading manufacturers and consultants, this program features the broadest experience available anywhere in the fields of high-speed film and high-speed electronic imaging capture and analysis. Of particular interest is the latest trend of merging high-speed electronic images and instrumentation data for in-depth analysis of mechanical events.

The scope of the program should make it invaluable to anyone who wishes to broaden their capabilities in the field of high-speed imaging.
