New Opti3 Alge-timing Photofinish camera ready for the 2018 Worlds

The City hall of Montemor-o-Velho just upgrade the photofinish equipment available at the High performance centre, with the brand new Opti3 from Alge-Timing.

The new opti3 camera is the most advanced photofinish camera in the market, and will provide not just more accurate timing, but also sharp and detailed photofinish pictures.

The 200 meters races are always difficult to evaluate, but now with this new camera everything will be much more clear.

This equipment was tested in our sport for the first time in the 2017 ICF Canoe Sprint World Cup in Portugal and provided fantastic pictures, including that very tight 5000 meters K1 Men finish, between Fernando Pimenta an João Ribeiro, both from Portugal. The finish line was 100 meters away from the finish line, and the image provided was perfectly clear. The gap between 1st and 2nd place was just 0.22 seconds.

The new opti3 is the perfect device, providing a 100 Hz 2-D full screen timing mode, a new very easy setup in 2-D mode,VoIP allows voice communication without headset with the starter and of course the new 2,016 pixel vertical in line scan mode and 1/100,000 sec precision providing true HD pictures.
