IDCAM Camera

The IDCam is a reliable and simple solution to issue a protocol of the finish arrival with high resolution pictures. Each finish line crossing of an athlete produces several pictures that are stored with the time of day on a PC.
It is possible to connect the IDCam-system with an ALGE-TIMING timing device. This allows an automatic recording controlled by the finish sensor (e.g. photocell). The recording duration for each finish impulse is adjustable (recording time before and after impulse). If the impulse is transmitted from the timing device with a start number (bib) the number is also stored with the picture.
With the recorded pictures you can verify the finish arrival and it allows correcting missing times or start numbers. All in all, an ideal addition to any ALGE-TIMING timing system.
You can download a sample database for track&field and open water swimming.
