Phantom Academy of High-Speed Imaging

Academy of HS Imaging

Technical Education

Vision Research is introducing a series of hands-on technical short courses designed to prepare attendees for advanced high-speed imaging applications. Courses will be taught by Vision Research engineers and invited industry leaders. The content will focus on key technical concepts, notable examples from the field, and two days of hands-on applications training with cutting-edge equipment and under the guidance of experienced applications engineers. Each user will set up an actual experiment, collect and analyze data from a high-speed event, and then disseminate that data to the class.

Depending on the application and the information being delivered courses will be taught by a variety of professional users, developers, partners, and high-speed imaging experts. Each instructor will work to deliver the information necessary for a participant to recreate successful experiments in the future.
