The MacFinish Pro. Our MacFinish has an Ethernet connection between the camera and computer which allows you to place the computer at a larger distance from the cameras. The camera itself is a complete professional photo finish system and produces photo-quality pictures billions of different colors, and a superb dynamic range in case of temporary recording of high contrast images or part of the image (shadow in some and full sun in other lanes). The MacFinish Pro guarantees the race and time recording internally inside the camera, independent of what happens with the personal computer

Video ID

Identification of athletes? Have you ever noticed problems with the registration of the finish order for a 800m or 1500m race, where 8 or more persons almost simultaneously finished? As the first photofinish TimeTronics made the full integration of a DIGITAL video recording system in a photo finish system! A high resolution digital video camera is placed 3 to 5 meters behind the finish line and connected with the photo finish computer. The finish video is automatically taken together with the photo finish image so the operator can concentrate on the race itself.
