Photron Fastcam Viewer V4


Photron has released a new version 4 of their camera control and video processing software, the Photron Fastcam Viewer (PFV).

The new PFV has been completely rewritten from scratch, using the latest tools to increase versatility and speed. PFV V4 implements a new modern user interface, easier access to the most commonly used controls, and a host of new features and functions, vastly improving the workflow when recording high-speed videos.

A few of the new features added in PFV V4 are:

  • Bright or dark GUI – for use in darkened environment
  • Improved multiple-file handling including batch conversion from RAW to AVI format
  • Automatic detection and setting of network parameters



One of the most useful additions, which really makes a difference in the workflow, is the implementation of a host of image-processing functions using nVidea GPU graphics co-processor for real-time processing, including:

  • High-dynamic range processing for increased dynamic range
  • Perspective and lens-distortion processing
  • Image stabilization
  • Brightness, colour and white balance processing.


Each of these image enhancement functions work in real-time and can be switched on and off with a single click, making it easy to visually optimize the settings. Once a good set of parameters are selected, the processing can be applied to the video while saving to AVI with minimum processing overhead.

PFV V4 is delivered with all cameras from November 2018 onwards, and is available to existing Photron Fastcam customers free of charge.
