Add FinishLynx Cameras & Never Question Chip Times Again
Adding FinishLynx to your chip system provides digital video and time-stamped photo-finish images for your race results. That means you’ll have visual proof to confirm every chip read to 1/1,000th of a second or more. Stop worrying about missed chips, wrong finish orders, or questionable finish times ever again.
Chip systems are great for road races because they can capture thousands of finish times quickly and efficiently. But what happens if those finish times are missing or incorrect? The nature of RFID technology means that chip timers may have to sacrifice accuracy for ease of use. Thankfully, FinishLynx offers an elegant solution: combining chip reads with time-stamped video and photo-finish images.
Turn Chip Reads Into Time-Stamped Results Images
RFID transponder reads can vary depending on athlete speeds, weather conditions, number of competitors, chip/bib placement, antenna power, and more. The FinishLynx software can automatically overlay your chip reads onto time-stamped photo-finish images so you can evaluate every finisher to within a 1/1000th of a second or more. FinishLynx turns your ordinary chip system into certified fully automatic timing.
Use Your Chip System
FinishLynx cameras interface with many popular chip timing systems so you can enhance the technology you already own.
Capture Certified Results
Produce certified results by adding technology that is trusted by championship events in running, cycling, motorsports, and everything in between.
Add Some Peace of Mind
Photo-Finish images provide visual proof for close finishes, preventing issues with inaccurate, broken, or missing chips.
Improve Your Accuracy
FinishLynx photo-finishes are accurate to at least 1/1000th of a second – impossible with chip readers or video alone. Up your precision by 10x with a FinishLynx camera.

Sample Camera Integration for Road Races and Marathons
“A chip timing system without cameras is like an electronic voting machine that doesn’t produce a paper receipt; you can still wonder whether the recorded result matches what actually occurred. But it is pretty hard to refute a photo record of every rider on every lap.” - Lennard Zinn, Velo News
