IdentiLynx digital video is fully integrated with FinishLynx photo-finish results and both captures are time-synchronized inside the software. That means users can simply click anywhere in the FinishLynx image capture and watch the full-color IdentiLynx video jump to precisely the same moment in time—but showing a head-on view of the finish line.
IdentiLynx video can also be scrolled forward and backward frame-by-frame to allow for quick and accurate identification of competitors by their numbers and affiliation. The outputs from the two types of cameras are fully time synchronized so that it is possible to move the cursor in the photo finish window and watch the video jump to precisely the same moment in time. The IdentiLynx camera can also be used with the popular ACM plugin (Automatic Capture) to automate the fully automatic timing process.
“Wouldn’t do a track or XC meet without it. It’s saved more races than one can count, especially when runners block out the others and/or there was a question regarding team or team members. Worth every bit of the pennies spent for it.” -Trey, FinishLynx Customer
