Live Camera Control at Your Fingertips

iX Cameras continues the Olympus i-SPEED tradition of designing a unique Control Display Unit (CDU) for our cameras. Now with the i-SPEED 7, we introduce the first touchscreen CDU version — the CDUe — for the utmost in portability and ease-of- use at the camera. The CDUe application software is designed in layers. Make a quick recording, save images to the internal or external SSD and playback slowly with just a few touches. For more demanding applications, the CDUe helps you focus, set exposure, record and playback with a wide range of powerful options. The bright display allows camera users to ‘frame and aim’ at the camera — no more towing around laptops or looking at large TV displays to optimize focus and position. No other camera provides portable control like the i-SPEED 7 with a CDUe.
  • 10.8″ high-resolution LCD touchscreen CDUe monitor
  • Intuitive, compact and easy-to-use software application
  • Change settings, frame rate and shutter speed, then record and instantly view the action at any speed
  • Save to internal or external swappable SSDs for fast, efficient saving and maximum up-time
  • Includes i-FOCUS and i-EXPOSE for optimal focus and setting of your optics
  • Innovative Low Light mode lets you easily switch between recording mode and setup mode
  • Set cameras to record in loop mode, then trigger internally, externally or automatically

PC Control Software Sets new Standard

We designed innovative new software for the 7 Series — the i-SPEED Software Suite 2.0. The i-SSS2 software is based on feedback from our users regarding their workflow and processes. The suite comes with multiple ‘applications’ optimized for whether you are working directly with one camera, multiple cameras, multiple cameras with the optional DAQ hardware modules, or working at your desk doing editing, motion analysis or presentations. Modern, modular and user configurable, the new Control and Control Multi-DAQ let you create image-based test environments for easy setup of your cameras and DAQ hardware. Make quick measurements at the camera, or for more extensive motion analysis, we have bundled ProAnalyst® by Xcitex — the premier motion analysis software on the market. i-SPEED Movie Maker lets you quickly create movies from your high-speed videos, with fades, watermarks, ramps, titles and more. The applications work elegantly together for a truly revolutionary setup, test and data acquisition experience.*
*ProAnalyst and i-SPEED Movie Maker available with Premium bundle.

Optional Ruggedized Case

If your application requires you to take your i-SPEED 7 outside the laboratory, select the rugged package. Machined from solid aluminum, the rugged package is High-G rated for shock and designed to keep moisture away from the electronics inside. The rugged package also has a removable handle and multiple attachment holes for hanging, use with booms, and insertion into enclosures and chambers.

Swappable SSD Flash Memory Cartridges

500 GB | 1 TB
High-speed cameras generate large video files that need to be transferred to permanent storage. Introducing the first swappable external Solid State Drive (xSSD). Move very large data files in final video formats quickly and with ease. SSD cartridges snap into the i-SPEED 7 camera and into your laptop, where they appear as another hard drive. Available in a variety of storage capacities. No more expensive, custom high-volume transfer solutions.

Battery Powered

Optional dual swappable batteries provide up to an hour of independent charge to the camera. Plug the camera in to automatically recharge the batteries or replace them with a fully charged set to continue your capture uninterrupted, without the need for heavy battery packs or noisy generators. Batteries charge during operation and automatically engage once the camera is unplugged. Keep a store of fresh batteries to shoot on the go for as long as you need.

Health Monitoring

The real-time health monitoring system is the most valuable i-SPEED 7 feature you will likely never see. Embedded within each camera is a sophisticated series of sensors capable of monitoring your camera’s environment and power systems at all times, automatically making adjustments as necessary to ensure a stable working environment. View the camera’s internal and external environmental conditions and allow the camera to automatically adjust fan speed to regulate heat distribution, saving precious battery life and reducing internal noise. Use the health monitoring system to adjust external environmental conditions manually. Monitor the total voltage used by the system, as well as the voltage used by the camera alone. Watch the current that the camera is using, the temperature of the sensor, fan speed, and the average camera temperature to ensure that challenging environmental conditions do not damage the camera. Test that third party protective housings are not disruptive to the internal framework of the camera. The health monitoring system can also reduce fan noise using quiet mode and displays the battery health and status. Regardless of your capture environment, you never have to worry about your camera getting damaged or losing data through overheating, battery failure, voltage spikes, or overcurrents – it’s simply impossible.

HDMI, HD-SDI and More

The i-SPEED 7 offers the most versatile and varied output and control options available, allowing the ultimate freedom to use the camera in a variety of applications and industries. Whether you are controlling it through the CDUe or a local computer, you will use an instinctual and intuitive control system, allowing for quick recording, playback, cropping and saving of clips. Multiple video outputs allow for instant streaming of camera images and third-party connectivity and live interaction. The external SSD module allows for SSD cartridges to be quickly swapped between recording sessions.
